On a recent train trip through Vermont to enjoy the fall colors, my husband and I stayed at the 1868 Crosby House, a B&B in Brattleboro. It was wonderful! The Italianate Victorian home is clean, charming and within walking distance of town. Rooms were lovely, with bathrooms and fireplaces, and the owners, Lynn and Richard Kuralt, were friendly and helpful. There are nine miles of woodland trails behind the house, which provided much-needed exercise after our hostess fed us delicious gourmet breakfasts and afternoon teas.
