An English Hideaway Inn
A bed and breakfast
carriage house inn located in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. In Berkshire county close
to Tanglewood , Lenox MA, & Butternut ski area, Great Barrington MA.
In the heart of the Berkshires and Norman Rockwell country.
The Inn is an authentic 230 year old Berkshire
cottage Farmhouse located close to Tom Ball Mountain.
The building was called "Berkshire Cottage" for many
years and a sign sporting this name hung outside for over 70 years until the previous
owners renamed the property "Christine's Inn". The Inn's
main building was constructed between 1780 and 1840 and guests enjoy the country cottage
ambience of the guest lounge, complete with a wood burning stove, and the country cottage
dining room which is a great place for breakfast watching the many beautiful birds that
grace the extensive gardens
Much of its original character is intact such as: the wide pine floors, open beam ceilings and the Rumford fireplace in the main house. The Rumford Room, which is the oldest room in the house, is open for Holiday Specials with dinner packages.
The carriage house building, accommodating the guest rooms, is relatively new and dates back to 1985. The Berkshire Room has a fireplace for a particularly cosy and romantic feel as well as its own private deck for those warm summer evenings. All rooms are air conditioned and have mountain and garden views. The Inn has magnificent lawns, perennial cottage gardens, 200 year old trees and views overlooking Tom Ball Mountain. The gardens have a gazebo located on the south side where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful country ambience.
All rooms have wireless-internet, flat screen TVs and DVD players as well as air conditioning.
Location is the key word. Situated in the heart of the Berkshire mountains, we truly have the best of both worlds when it comes to location and cultural activities for our guests.
Winter is a magical time filled with snow, log fires,
Christmas fayres and mulled wine. Stay at An English Hideaway Inn
and ski at three of our local and excellent ski resorts, Butternut, Catamount and Jiminy
Peak. Enjoy nearby Great Barrington and Stockbridge as they come alive over the holiday
The Berkshire region of Western Massachusetts really comes alive in Spring & Summer as the land re-awakes from the chilly winter months
