Our trip to the Berkshires was made all the more enjoyable by the warm welcome we received at this lovely B&B. Trevor and Denise are the perfect hosts, and we spent a lovely evening with them as they filled us in on the surrounding area and also on their other venture, custom-itinerary tours of South Africa. The latter was fascinating.... More

We came to the Berkshires for 5 days of hiking, biking, and music and found the English Hideaway Inn B&B. We were stunned at how comfortable and welcoming it is. The breakfasts were topnotch as Denise, the proprietor and cook, made whatever was your whim for breakfast. Eggs, French toast, whatever you wanted were outstanding. We ate seated next to... More

Denise and Trevor are a great couple who made us feel at home straight away in their lovely historic house.. They were both very helpful and informative about the area. The room was spacious and had a small patio leading out into the beautiful garden with lovely herbaceous plantings. The B&B has a guest lounge and seating areas outside including... More

My wife and I stayed at an English Hideaway during a trip to the Berkshires for our first wedding anniversary. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. They provided everything we could need, including a delicious breakfast. They even gave us advice for our upcoming trip to South Africa (they are experts on South African tourism and run their own...

We visited recently for our 18th anniversary and were so pleased with every aspect of our stay. The owners, Denise and Trevor, could not have been more welcoming and lovely. We arrived after dark, and they came outside immediately to greet us. Our room was cozy, with a gas fireplace and a supercomfortable bed, pretty linens. There was a vase... More

I recently stayed at the English Hideaway Inn while attending a friend's wedding in Housatonic. It is very good value for money with my husband being pleasantly surprised by the bill (a very rare occasion). The Inn is a beautiful 230 year old Berkshire cottage farmhouse. The owners, Denise and Trevor, are warm and friendly hosts ready to serve your... More

We stayed at the English Hideaway so we could go see some friends perform at The Guthrie Center which was less than 5 minutes away. Denise and Trevor were so wonderful and welcoming. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast and coffee was delicious. I hope I will get a chance to stay here again in the near... More

The English Hideaway B&B is nestled in a quiet valley in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts. The B&B is spotlessly clean, well appointed, and perfectly managed by two very talented and friendly inn keepers; Denise and Trevor. My wife and I live in Southeastern Connecticut so it was an easy two hour drive to reach the area. We stayed... More

This was our first visit to the Berkshires and indeed English Hideaway inn. Both were outstanding and we were blessed with very fine weather as well. The inn run by Denise and Trevor Forbes is everything one could hope for. From the well appointed rooms, ours was the Berkshire, to the most sumptious breakfasts, with a wonderful choice of home...
