I enjoyed a lovely weekend with hostess Lynn at this marvelous bed and breakfast. It was a last minute reservation but I was so fortunate to stay in the garden studio with my own private entrance. It was a cozy, clean, spacious and welcoming retreat. This garden suite had a warm gas fireplace and a small kitchenette so you could... More

We stayed at the Crosby House for three days and had a wonderful time. Lynn was so friendly and warm, as well as a terrific, imaginative cook - our breakfasts were out of this world delicious. The home was impeccably clean, the bedroom was spacious and filled with a comfy bed, warm gas fireplace, and many antiques. We most definitely... More

I enjoyed a wonderful stay with hostess Lynn at her historic bed and breakfast. Scrumptious breakfasts were a delight. The location is ideal for hopping onto I91, heading to the mountains on Rte. 9, hiking in the back woods or walking downtown to sample the fine restaurants and shop in the boutiques. Lynn has many suggestions for things to do... More

We stayed at the 1868 Crosby House the second weekend of November. The owner Lynne was so wonderful. She has such a warm and caring energy. We did not want for anything. The room was cozy and comfortable. We truly felt like we were family guests in their home. She created the most delicious breakfasts both mornings. Also the grounds... More

We stayed at the Crosby House for 3 nights in the main house and decided to extend our stay and rented one of the two efficiency apartments. Lynne makes an amazing breakfast, with home made fruit starter followed by the main course of some special creation with eggs or waffles. There are 5 rooms in this beautifully decorated Victorian home,... More

We just returned from a lovely stay at this Vermont B&B. The Crosby House felt like a family home--which it is. The innkeeper Lynn was both friendly and unobtrusive. Breakfast was delicious and the upstairs room was very comfortable and homey.

A lovely old house, full of character and period furnishings. The owner is really friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is delicious and different every day. Brattleboro itself is well worth a visit - we really liked the interesting shops,cafes and good restaurants. Less 'touristy' than some of the other places we visited on our tour- in a good way! You can... More

My friend and fellow cyclist, Judith, posted a week ago, but I wanted to also express my appreciation for the welcoming atmosphere of 1868 Crosby House. It was the best experience one can have of being "at home" while traveling. The dedication Lynn has to comfort and detail is what really makes this a first choice accommodation.

We had a really comfortable bed in a well-furnished room with ready access to TV and internet. Breakfast was freshly cooked and was American pancakes at their best. We found Brattleboro a convenient stepping off point for a tour of Vermont in the fall, following routes 30 and 100 northwards.

My husband and I stayed at The Crosby House with a small cycling tour group. Lynn, our innkeeper, is warm and gracious. She is an excellent chef. Our breakfasts each morning were beautifully presented so we began our delicious meals with our eyes before taking our first bites. Our room was very comfortable with a small kitchenette.
