My wife and I had had such a wonderful stay the week we spent at this charming B&B. Janis was so helpful. She had plenty of suggestions for our stay. The room was so cozy and comfortable. We stayed in the Master suite and it was spacious with an extremely comfortable bed. There were plenty of restaurants and shops within... More

An extraordinary weekend at Crabtree. Six of us experienced the most wonderful hospitality you could envision. The warmth and friendliness was unmatched. The breakfast was exquisite and the opportunity to sit and chat in a beautiful garden with friends was the perfect way to enjoy our time together. Thank you to Janis and Jeff. We will be back

We had a wonderful three nights in Crabtree Cottage and only wish it had been possible for us to stay longer. We spent our holiday travelling around New England and were in Lee principally for Tanglewood, but it is Crabtree Cottage that will stand out in our memory for years to come. Janis and Jeff are warm and attentive hosts... More

When I think about summer and Tanglewood, another cherished component is a stay at Crabtree Cottage. It's a perfect jumping off place for a multitude of local sites, set for the day after an early morning swim in their pool and sumptuous breakfast. Janis and Jeff provide an inviting and nourishing setting for a great mix of guests.

This was our first stay at Crabtree Cottage and it will not be our last. Our previously booked accomodation unexpectedly closed and we found this wonderful place to stay. The setting is warm and inviting--tastefully decorated interior and relaxing yard. Janis and Jeff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and concerned that all of our needs were met and all of our...

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.

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
