The bed and breakfast was purchased in 1999 and was used as a nursing home for many years. Since the purchase we have totally renovated the structure with all of the amenities available in the 21 century. It features internet access in each room and we have a common living room with a 52 in. tv and a large family style dining room with an eleven foot oak table.

Wonderful home like B&B you will not be disappointed.

4.8 on April 20, 2014

This charming B&B is well worth the trip. The location is slightly further away than other more prominent B&B and reasonably priced. We traveled to and from Millerton, about 10 miles each way on country roads. Very pretty drive. The owners are gracious and friendly. We stayed in room #1. The bed is comfy and the room spacious. The second story porch wraps around 2 sides of the house. It was a wee bit chilly to sit out. Would love to come back again in warmer weather to sit and relax on the porch. Our online reservation was easily made and the response time was quick. We received a couple emails from Heidi welcoming us to the B&B. A great find would return.

loved my stay

My husband and I had tickets last night to Infinity Music Hall and wanted to stay over close to the hall. I found the Locust Tree on line so I booked Saturday night. Very nice Bed and Breakfast. Very clean and so easy to get to from Bristol CT. The breakfast Heidi made was awesome. We will DEFINITELY be back...

An outstanding 17 people stay!!!

4.0 on August 27, 2011

Heidi and John were so accommodating to our very big group of 4 siblings, grandparents, and lots of kids! They were so flexible with us on our sleeping situations, check in times, and were so kind and gracious. They made our stay for a nearby wedding very relaxing and stress free. Oh and the breakfast was awesome!!! This is such a terrific and clean b&b. We highly recommend it for anyone passing through the area. Thanks again Heidi and John! ... the Klepp Group

Most amazingly great B&B ever

My family has been staying at Locust Tree twice a year for 3 years now. My wife and I come to watch my son race at Limerock park which is only a few miles away, and my daughter comes as well. I think Locust Tree is the best B&B I have ever stayed at. It is clean and comfortable, with large airey rooms. The breakfast is great, and Heidi goes out of her way to provide you with whatever you want including special needs. The Lillis are very gracious hosts and make you feel like family. If you are traveling anywhere in this area, this is the place to stay.
