We had a very pleasant stay of two nights here. The very caring owners make you feel at home and made us a delicious fresh breakfast. They provided us with some helpful information about trips and where to dine. The house has character, the interior is beautiful and clean. In short: a perfect bed and breakfast.

Dear Johan, Thank you so much for writing this review. We enjoyed hosting you and your darling family. We especially loved seeing your children get comfortable with the dogs. I hope you had fun with the rest of your trip in America, especially going to Boston and watching the World Cup and seeing the Boston Red Sox!. Thank you again... More

We looked forward to our second stay at Crabtree Cottage this year, and it did not disappoint. Janis, Max and Margo welcomed us , and we settled in to our room and the comfy chairs on the front porch immediately. We loved the pretty gardens all around the property. The Cottage was cozy in the winter, but it takes on... More

My husband and I stayed at the Crabtree Cottage for one night and had never been to a Bed and Breakfast before. This was such a memorable, unique, and beautiful experience!

When my wife and I booked our stay at Crabtree Cottage for just one day in late September we weren’t really shopping for a B & B experience per se. Main Street Stockbridge and the Norman Rockwell Museum were our primary interests. Crabtree Cottage would serve as a clean, quiet place to spend the night reasonably close to this first... More

We stayed at the Crabtree Cottage last summer (2013) while on a three day jaunt in the Berkshires. The hosts were great. They even gave us the backroads way to get to Tanglewood and back on the busiest night of the year. Our room was superb. Breakfasts were excellent.

When my wife and I opened the front door, we were immediately impressed by the elegance and gracious atmosphere in the living and dining rooms. They were immaculate, as was the entire home. Janis greeted us in a warm and friendly manner, and showed us to our room, the Master’s Chamber, which was large and attractively furnished, including two comfortable... More
