My wedding party was lucky enough to have a tour of the house before our rehearsal thanks to Brian and his mom, Friends of Crosby Mansion. I grew up playing on the grounds and wondering what was behind the boarded up exterior. It's wonderful to see what the dedicated volunteers have done with this gorgeous piece of history and I'm...

We live on Cape Cod and visited the Crosby Mansion recently for the first time. We know where to take people when they visit us next year! It's such an interesting, historical story of how it came to be and what has happened since it was built. The carpentry in the home is truly amazing and the view is magnificent!

This is well worth an hour ( or less if you want ) to see this mansion and hear all about its history. The volunteers are all very knowledgable about the home and it's history. You can tell the all really care. All three levels of the home are worth visiting , especially the original home that the mansion was... More

The Crosby Mansion is only open about 4 times each year, but it is well-worth putting the open dates in your schedule. The Mansion is really beautiful with old world charm and amazing features. However, what is even more beautiful is the dedication of a small group of volunteers who have taken charge of renovating/refurbishing the mansion over the past... More

As a history buff and Brewster, MA enthusiast the Crosby Mansion is the place to go! It is an amazing testament to a mans' love for his wife and his desire to preserve his past. With Albert Crosby's mansion built around his childhood home it gives visitors a peek into what money and exceptional taste can build! The Friends of... More

Lovely mansion to visit and learn about it's history.. the grander building on the picture wraps around a small cottage that was the original owner's parents home. The garden club has a decorator's holiday showhouse there every few years(like this year 2013)well worth the visit. The rooms show off the splendor of days gone by.. think Downton Abbey ala Cape...

I visit here every year to say hi to the resident foxes who have lived here on the grounds and have raised their pups for several years now..I get the feeling Im not alone when I visit, although no one is usually there when I stroll the grounds...Could definitely be haunted...I feel like someone is watching me when I walk...

Crosby Mansion in Brewster,MA is a work in progress. We enjoyed our tour where every area of the mansion has a well- informed docent. You will enjoy the tales of this family which is quite different than the owners of the Rhode Island mansions. Beautiful area and just steps from the Crosby Beach for swimming on the bay

We had the chance to tour this Mansion and it was absolutely incredible. Mr. Crosby loved his home but his wife wanted something more elaborate so a beautiful mansion was built around his home which then turned out to be his man cave. There are beautiful views from the second floor, gorgeous rooms, amazing furniture and the guides were very... More

Formerly a private house and a beautiful Victorian mansion. It is open every other Sunday for tours. Don't miss it. Located by the scenic Crosby Beach. They are putting in bathrooms soon so that they can have larger functions. Walk around it; it's beautiful
