The One Cat

We're a small, friendly bed & breakfast in the heart of a Brattleboro residential neighborhood just 10 minutes' walk from downtown. Stay close to trails, rivers, parks and all that makes this part of the world special. Brattleboro makes a great base for exploring the area. When you get back to town, there are plenty of independent shops, great restaurants and watering holes and a movie theater, all within a few minutes' walk of your cozy accommodation*.

About us

We met in Brighton, a city on the south coast of England, in 1997, and we've been together ever since. We married in 2012, and decided to move to the US - Pat's a New England girl and hadn't lived at this side of the pond for nearly 20 years. Vermont really was the only choice because of the seasons, views, politics and welcoming attitude. When we opened The One Cat in 2014, we knew we didn't want anything fancy- no hot tubs or champagne- just a friendly, comfortable space on a real street in a real neighborhood, and Clark Street fit the bill. We love our home, our neighbors, and our excellent little town, and we feel very lucky to have found such a great place and so many wonderful friends. The One Cat allows us to share some of that with others.  


Pat, Conrad, Dexter & Piper 

Number of cats may vary

Conrad came up with the name The One Cat when we were preparing our British cat Dexter for international air travel. He lived the jet-setting life for two days, flying under the seat in front of us from London to Amsterdam, then on to Boston. We all enjoyed the extremely meow-y car trip to Brattleboro. He got fat over the first winter due to lack of playtime (we were busy with the house) so we decided to find him a friend. 


We found Piper at the our local humane society, and she is a tiny handful. She loves to play, and chases Dexter all around the house to help him shed his extra pounds. Pipes is a fan of boxes and bags, and she enjoys hanging out on her purpose-built catio watching the world (and squirrels and birds) go by.
