Gilbert's Tree Farm B&B

30 Spring Street , Rehoboth, 02769 USA (Show map)


The entire 1830s farmhouse is designed with guests' comfort in mind. Five quaint bedrooms are furnished with antiques. Two have private baths. Large sitting rooms offer quiet places for reading and listening to music. Guests enjoy a full country breakfast before visiting the many local attractions. The B&B is located on a 17-acre award winning tree farm. Local activities include canoeing, bicycling, touring museums and mansions and antique hunting. The B&B was featured on WBZ-TV's "Evening Magazine" and was named 1987 Massachusetts Tree Farm. George Washington never slept here, but our guests have come from Finland, England, Germany, France and throughout the United States. The welcome mat is always out.

Love staying at Gilbert's B&B

5 on November 09, 2017

Everything was great, especially the most gracious host and hostess.

Home away from home!

I was in Rehoboth for a wedding and made 2 discoveries I wouldn’t have otherwise: that Rehoboth is such a charming slice of rural New England; and that Jeanne gave me the opportunity to experience a real New England farmhouse. She is such a sweet, genuine hostess. Her home is lovely, the accommodations are supremely comfortable, and her country breakfasts are tasty and satisfying. Look forward to returning with no other reason than to repeat the experience! Brad Barnett Bakersfield, CA

B and B stay

This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. The house is old, but charming, very clean and comfortable. The mattress on our bed was super comfortable for us. Bathroom was a bit of a challenge but in older homes big bathrooms are not to be expected. Plenty of hot water and fresh towels daily. Breakfasts were tasty, hearty food and plenty of it. Jeanne and Don are lovely hosts.

Great B & B

This is a nice B & B in a quiet area. It is a little out of the way but it is worth it. Still close enough to activities yet away from the hustle and bustle. Jeanne & Donald are great hosts and the breakfasts are good. We stayed for 2 nights on our way home from Maine. We appreciated the fact that our room was on the first floor and there were no steps as my wife has a hard time with steps. If you are passing through the New England area it is a great place to stay. Reasonable price as well. Will stay again if we are in the area.

Pernottamento 1 notte

Abbiamo dormito 1 notte in questo B&B. La signora veramente molto disponibile e accogliente. La casa molto bella. La colazione anche molto buona e preparata sul momento. La camera era un po' improvvisata, piccolina e non pulitissima per i miei standard.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. Since I cannot read Italian, I had your review translated. I trust this is what you wrote: "We stayed 1 night in this B&B. The lady was very welcoming and available. The house was very beautiful. The breakfast was very good and it was prepared on the spot. The room was a bit makeshift, small and not the cleanest for our standards." When your reservation came in you asked for an extra bed for your child. Since the room accommodates two people (13 1/2 by 13 1/2) we offered to provide a rollaway bed in the room. We're sorry that the cleanliness of the room was not up to your standard. I, too, have high standards for cleanliness. In addition to providing clean linens and towels, vacuumed and washed floors and rugs, clean bathroom, mirrors, picture frames, baseboards, doors, walls, wastebaskets and polished furniture, we also focus on cleaning behind furniture and between indoor windows and storm windows. We look forward to sharing our B&B with you in the future.

Cozy Country B&B!

We were greeted by the adorable outdoor cats. Don and Jeanne were wonderful hosts, and Jeanne made a delicious breakfast of blueberry pancakes for us. Great place to stay and convenient location while visiting friends in Providence. Very cozy and quiet.

Wonderful B and B!

We have stayed at Gilbert's Tree Farm B and B two times in the last four years. Not only did the hosts, Jeanne and Don remember us, but they welcomed us like family. Jeanne makes a fabulous home style breakfast, and the room accommodations are very cozy. The cost of stay is very reasonable for the area as well. Highly recommend!

very quiet and relaxing

Comfortable stay in the peace and quiet!

My hubby and I were looking for a quiet place to stay close enough to still appreciate the city. We found it at Gilbert's! We were very pleasantly surprised by the solitude of the location and the homeyness of the house. Jeanne and Donald were great hosts and we enjoyed our time with them.
