Owner description: Grand Victorian mansion built around a Cape Cod cottage.
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The Crosby Mansion is only open about 4 times each year, but it is well-worth putting the open dates in your schedule. The Mansion is really beautiful with old world charm and amazing features. However, what is even more beautiful is the dedication of a small group of volunteers who have taken charge of renovating/refurbishing the mansion over the past few years. It was truly a labor or love which they willingly took on with some support from the town of Brewster and the Commonwealth of MA. I was totally entranced by their compelling story of how they lovingly brought the mansion from a total wreck to a jewel.

As a history buff and Brewster, MA enthusiast the Crosby Mansion is the place to go! It is an amazing testament to a mans' love for his wife and his desire to preserve his past. With Albert Crosby's mansion built around his childhood home it gives visitors a peek into what money and exceptional taste can build! The Friends of Crosby Mansion have done An AMAZING job getting the mansion back to its glory!!

Lovely mansion to visit and learn about it's history.. the grander building on the picture wraps around a small cottage that was the original owner's parents home. The garden club has a decorator's holiday showhouse there every few years(like this year 2013)well worth the visit. The rooms show off the splendor of days gone by.. think Downton Abbey ala Cape Cod.
Go on a sunny clear day to get the best of the views out over the water of Crosby bay. it's right across the street from
the entrance to Nickerson Park(in fact owned by the state of MA) but renovations ongoing by dedicated volunteers.

I visit here every year to say hi to the resident foxes who have lived here on the grounds and have raised their pups for several years now..I get the feeling Im not alone when I visit, although no one is usually there when I stroll the grounds...Could definitely be haunted...I feel like someone is watching me when I walk around...There is a wooded path to the beach behind the house, going to Crosby Landing Beach..The house tours are sporadic...The town of Brewster usually posts when docents will be there to open the house...The inside of the house is lovely and the town has spent several years restoring it to its former glory..

Crosby Mansion in Brewster,MA is a work in progress. We enjoyed our tour where every area of the mansion has a well- informed docent. You will enjoy the tales of this family which is quite different than the owners of the Rhode Island mansions. Beautiful area and just steps from the Crosby Beach for swimming on the bay
