Excellent in every detail! Rooms, food, and service are top notch! Grounds are amazing! The Woodlands Trail behind inn is delightful. Great spot to do leaf peeping and serve as a home base to explore southern Vermont.

This charming house with its charming grounds and beautifully decorated rooms (each is unique) was the perfect place to stay during our fall foliage trek. Lynn thoughtfully put out a basket of things you might have forgotten like toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, etc. in the sitting room upstairs. There was also a fridge with bottle water and soft drinks. I did think it odd that no shampoo was provided in the bathroom, but the basket took care of that. There was afternoon tea and a cookie jar, and a sumptious breakfast. I thought it a very nice touch to bring coffee up to the room in the morning. Lynn is a born hostess and very personable. Would have loved to stay longer.

What a treat to get a chance to stay at this B&B. Our room, Autumn Rose, was a delight with beautiful furniture and well appointed bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and early delivery of coffee to our room before breakfast was a bonus. Our host Lynn is a natural, so easy to talk to and very helpful with information about the area. We enjoyed our stay and would stay at the 1868 Crosby House again.

upside: Clean, comfortable, spacious room, good breakfast, coffee & tea available any time, beautiful back garden.

downside: Sits on a busy road, 20 minute walk into town, windows wouldn't open.

That said, I would stay here again.

We always look forward to our yearly weekend visit to the Crosby House. Lynn and Richard’s gracious hospitality and the lovely surroundings make it a truly enjoyable stay. Although we have a favorite, every room that we stayed in has its own unique charm. We love strolling through the beautiful gardens in the back of the house or just taking a short walk on the path. And I wouldn’t leave out the wonderful breakfast that is always one of the highlights. You will not be disappointed in this distinctive B&B!

My husband and I very much enjoyed the Crosby House on our recent trip to Brattleboro. Lynn was very welcoming and accommodating of our late arrival. Our room was spotless and extremely comfortable (if a little warm).

What sets the Crosby House apart are the little touches--coffee in the room, a little reading room where you can borrow DVDs and magazines, free snacks, and coffee/tea brought to your room before breakfast in the morning!

Crosby House offers a unique "bedroom" suite, not often seen in a B&B. My sister and I were often "in late" to the property and this option allowed us a way to minimize disturbing others. The property is beautiful and relaxing. The only comment other than praise was that our room wasn't vacuumed when we arrived. We would stay again just the same. The property owners were very accommodating to our special requests. The breakfasts were as delicious as they were beautifully presented.

Room Tip: If you wanted to stay with 3 people. There is a room "upstairs suite" that has a half wall...
