This is the 3rd time I have stayed at the Crabtree Cottage. Although there was absolutely nothing that needed to be improved upon, each visit is better than the last! Janis and Jeff are the perfect hosts. They make you feel so welcome, so comfortable and so relaxed! I feel like I am visiting dear friends! Janis is an amazing... More

Dear Kathy, We loved having you again this year! You and your daughter Shannon are inspiring to me.

We spent last weekend at The Crabtree Cottage and it was one of our favorite getaways that we've ever had. We were warmly greeted by Janis when we arrived and we just knew that this was going to be a special place. We stayed in The Julia Suite which was bright, cheery, comfortable, and spacious with all of the amenities... More

Crabtree Cottage defines the standard for an excellent B&B! It is located on a quiet residential street and close to the attractions of the Berkshires. We stayed in Suite Julia, a large and very comfortable room with a sunny Provencal decor. Our hosts, Janis and Jeff, are warm and welcoming and happy to help with any needs but never intrusive,...

This was our second visit to Crabtree. Both were wonderful. Quaint, clean rooms; delicious, bountiful breakfasts; nice, personable, helpful innkeepers. We also liked the snacks set out for us in the main room. A perfect place from which to enjoy the Berkshires.

This beautiful quaint B&B was an amazing place to stay. Beautiful room, very clean and elegantly decorated, inside and out. The owners are kind, warm and inviting. The breakfast served is INCREDIBLE and it's worth the stay just for the food alone. Your room is neatly remade every day and she is always leaving out little fresh baked goods for... More

This is a lovely B and B in a beautiful setting. It's convenient to all of the Bershires attractions. The breakfasts are also delicious. There are only a few rooms so book early. There are also a number of very good restaurants in the area.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We love our repeat customers, and we look forward to your return visits with your friends from Floridia. We always admire the stamina of our guests; arrive, unpack, and they are off. Next morning, leisurely breakfast, and they are off. Return mid-afternoon, or not, and perhaps a mid-afternoon nap ~ and their off again.... More

A lovely, small B&B (three rooms). Innkeepers Janis and Jeff are warm and welcoming, but also very low-key, a big plus in our book. The delicious breakfasts are served at a common table shared with the other guests, making for interesting and pleasant conversation. And the location, in the heart of Lee, is convenient to all Berkshire attractions. Highly recommended.
