“altogether pleasant!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Lynn and Richard are superb hosts. Long may they reign! The house is cool and comfortable; breakfast is especially delicious; the cultivated grounds in the back are delightful. I like the Rose Room and the Suite equally.

Room Tip: I've had the Rose Room and the Suite. Both are tops!

Had another most pleasant stay at the Crosby House. On all counts that count in B&Bs, the hosts--Lynn & Richard--do a superb job: lovely style, attention to detail, immaculate housekeeping, comfort, & warm hospitality--all for reasonable rates. The added big bonus: a great breakfast every time! We've enjoyed rooms in the house (in the past), and in the Garden Suite, which is a charming studio apartment. We look forward to staying again & again, & highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Lynn will advise you on which might be best for you. We especially enjoy the studio apt.

We stopped and stayed at the Crosby House on our road trip.
Lynn was so nice. Made us feel like we were home. Probably one of the best nights sleeps we have had. Breakfast was so VERY good. First time ever at a B&B and it will be hard to beat. House was nice and clean. Hiked some train from the back yard. Very nice stop!!!! If we are ever back in the area will stay again. Thanks for a great stay!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful home, delicious breakfasts made with local ingredients- some straight out of the garden.The rooms were spacious, clean and all in all it was a perfect escape. Coffee delivered to the bedrooms is a perfect wake up call and the gardens and hiking trails behind the house made for a great day trip. It's also near enough to downtown that going out to dinner is easy but far enough to be totally silent at night.

Room Tip: Winnifred's Retreat is a fantastic corner room with a gorgeous tub and shower.

Book your reservations now! Before Lynn figures out how under priced they are! I can say without a doubt this was the finest B&B accommodation we have ever stayed at and that includes many stateside and in Europe. Centrally located between Brattleboro and West Brattleboro, the attached miles of beautiful trails, the lovely and well appointed old home and the gracious innkeepers, what more can you ask for? OK off road parking and a rear lawn/garden like the finest park. I just needed someplace to stay while doing some research but found a quiet home I wish to return to just for the accommodation. Well done Lynn and Richard!

Room Tip: We had the upstairs, rear, open beam ceiling with stained glass window apartment. Beautiful!

Nothing short of excellent is what I will say about the Crosby House. We stayed in one of the back houses mid May and I can say if you are traveling and need a quality, comfortable place to stay then make this the spot. Lynn was very professional and personable at the same time. She made sure we knew she was there with anything we needed.

Pleasantly surprised with the experience. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with a double jacuzzi. Nicely decorated room with a beautiful bath.

The 1868 Crosby House and gardens were beautiful. Delicious breakfast and the complimentary water, coffee and teas were greatly appreciated. The coffee delivered to our room 30 minutes before breakfast was a welcomed treat. Very friendly place to stay.

Would stay at this B & B again.
