Excellent location, easy to find, and the inn keeper responded quickly to our request for a light bulb to be replaced and additional pillows. Breakfast was very good in both variety and quantity. We were 3 adults in a one room suite with convertible sofa and a partial room divider. It would have been excellent for a family with children... More

Lynn was a warm and welcoming host at this charming Bed and Breakfast. Our room was cosy and well equipped; additional toiletries were also available, together with a selection of CDs and DVDs to use as you wished during your stay. The house has a beautiful backyard with woodland trails that unfortunately we did not have the time to enjoy... More

Breakfast was outstanding! An added plus was DVRs to watch late at night, and a beautiful backyard garden made this experience special. Lynn is super nice which made the experience all the more wonderful

We've stayed in many b+b's and this has to be about the best. The innkeeper, Lynn, couldn't have been more helpful Our suite was very comfortable and well appointed---the air conditioning [it was 90 in Vermont!]worked well. In addition to Lynn's delicious breakfasts, the setting was lovely and quite unexpected. And add really fast free wifi.

This in a a lovingly restored old home with lots of character, it feels like home away fr home. The rooms are beautifully decorated. Breakfast is a treat and being gluten free posed no problem at all! Lovely hiking trails close by and Brattleboro is perfect starting point for cycling. There are several cycling shops ( who do rentals) and... More

The food was amazing and the perfect way to start my graduation morning. We were also blown away by the wonderful landscaping and the beautiful restoration of the house. The innkeeper was very welcoming and kind. I was on the sofa bed which was a little uncomfortable, but the host was very interested in my suggestion on how to make... More

We are in our late 60's and wanted a getaway to Southern Vermont. We chose the 1868 Crosby House for location and a smartly designed website. Our stay was made perfect by warm, friendly staff, a skillfully prepared gormet breakfast, and a room that provides the comfort and quiet you would expect. All this for a reasonable price and right... More

We chose this delightful house to stay at because of the ratings here and we were not disappointed. We have been treated like family and housed excellently. The gardens out the back are lovely but we didn't attempt the miles of trails. Breakfast was excellent and tea and coffee making facilities much appreciated, as was the wifi. The bed was... More

This is a real find! From the warm hospitality of the hosts, to the beauty of the house, to the lovely, comfortable rooms, to the incredible homemade breakfast (fruit, French toast, homemade muffins, coffee brought to your room). We are already creating reasons to return!
