This was a wonderful small B&B right near the center of Lee. Beautiful house, rooms, and garden. Everything was first rate. Lovely room with very nice bath. Delicious fresh breakfast and Janis was so warm and welcoming. This was my best B&B experience ever. I will be returning many times to see my daughter at her program in Lee.

Our short stay at Crabtree Cottage was delightful. Janis is a lovely host and made us feel right at home in her very comfortable cottage. Her breakfast was by far the best we have enjoyed at a B & B - popovers to die for! I loved the fenced cottage garden and the library, as well. It was the perfect...

My husband, mother and I recently spent 4 lovely nights at the Crabtree Cottage. Janice was kind and friendly, the breakfasts were terrific, the cottage and gardens are adorable, and it is SO clean. It is also very close to Tanglewood, which was our main destination. We will be back!

We spent last weekend at The Crabtree Cottage and it was one of our favorite getaways that we've ever had. We were warmly greeted by Janis when we arrived and we just knew that this was going to be a special place. We stayed in The Julia Suite which was bright, cheery, comfortable, and spacious with all of the amenities...

Crabtree Cottage defines the standard for an excellent B&B! It is located on a quiet residential street and close to the attractions of the Berkshires. We stayed in Suite Julia, a large and very comfortable room with a sunny Provencal decor. Our hosts, Janis and Jeff, are warm and welcoming and happy to help with any needs but never intrusive,...

“If you want a large bathroom, choose the Master's Chamber. If you want more space, choose Suite Julia (both of these rooms on ar the top floor and have AC). The La Chambre Bleue is the smallest of rooms and located on the first floor. You can't go wrong with whichever room you select.”
