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.

We stayed for one night at Crabtree Cottage as part of a driving tour of New England. We found this to be the best of all the B and B s we visited for many reasons. The inn is set in the most lovely cottage garden which had been carefully tended and is within a quiet residential area within walking... More

The Crabtree Cottage, conveniently located to Main Street, is a gem in the Berkshires and our favorite place to stay when in the area. We have never been disappointed! The inn reflects Janis' and Jeff's tasteful work and decorating talents. Since out last stay, the Master's Chamber has been redecorated. Walls are now a serene and soft hue of blue,... More

A gorgeous property, right in the heart of downtown. Spend the money and enjoy home away from home, when you come down to Lee. From the hospitality, to the decor, to the exceptional breakfast. This spot deserves an A+.

We are a group of "old college friends" who have gotten together at Crabtree Cottage for a weekend get-together for a number of years. It is a lovely B&B, relaxing and comfortable; beautifully decorated, but again, very comfortable; amazing breakfasts; wonderful hosts. The rooms are lovely and beds are very comfortable. The church bells may wake you, but what a... More

Very nice host (the innkeeper was away with her mother who had surgery- her husband stepped in- he was very helpful and friendly). Great room (we stayed in Suite Julia- it was huge and lovely and clean and bright and private. I would stay there again in a second. Wonderful breakfast- artichoke quiche, olive cake, broiled grapefruit, coffee, popovers, potatoes,... More

Well it has taken me far too long to get to this, but my wife and I had an amazing stay. I booked early in the week and luckily they still had room. We were attending for an early birthday present for my wife in Feb and it was everything and more. The room (suite julia) was bright and beautiful.... More

I recently spent one night at the Crabtree Cottage and it could not have been a more pleasant or restful experience. The B&B is located on a residential street, so it's as quiet as can be--a quality that seems so elusive these days. My room, Suite Julia, was enormous and delightful, complete with a separate sitting area. Extra touches included... More

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
