We just came back from an overnight, getaway stay during the coldest weekend of this winter. The cottage is on a residential side street off the main drag in Lee. It is a short walk (in better weather), into town and to a terrific restaurant (Chez Nous). It's a short distance from the Mass Pike (I-90) and a good location... More

My two friends and I stayed in the two second floor rooms of Crabtree Cottage last weekend. We were so glad we chose this beautiful homey comfortable B&B from which to shop around Lee and the outlets before Christmas. We loved the non - touristy shops in Lee and found a great place for lunch - The Starving Artist Cafe... More

We were looking for a beautiful place relatively nearby for a much needed respite. Crabtree Cottage is quiet, comfortable and near several sites. Janis and Jeff are terrific hosts. They even accommodated my husband's GF diet with outstanding food. We enjoyed time to sit and talk, hiking part of the Appalachian Trail, visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum, and hitting the...

In late September we spent 2 days in Crabtree cottage in the Master suite. The location is very central but quiet. The rooms are beautiful, and the hosts very charming and helpful. The breakfast was really delicious. For dinner the hosts recommended the nearby french restaurant Chez Nous which offers a wide range of dishes and has a good selection... More

We stayed in many B&Bs on our New England jaunt. This may have been the best. Spacious room, comfortable bed, nice seating, good lighting, and a great breakfast. Janis was very helpful and accommodating. Just a block off Main Street with restaurants & shops. Only stayed one nite but wish it could have been longer. Would highly recommend.

We only got to spend one night at Crabtree cottage, but wished we could have stayed longer. The house is beautiful, and the bed very comfortable. It is a short stroll to the Main Street, and Janis recommended an excellent restaurant for dinner that night. The breakfast cooked by Janis was exceptionally delicious - omelette, peach clafoutis and cinnamon buns... More

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.
