Don't be fooled by the name - this is not a typical motel. The building is a quintessentially American 1950s style motel, just the kind you hope to find on a trip to the States, but inside it is comfortable and stylish, with the feel...More
We stayed here one night on a month-long road trip in the Canadian Maritimes and New England. After so many different accommodations, it's easy to recognize a really special spot. The Briarcliff is ideally situated to explore the Berkshires and there is even trail access...More
The Briarcliff was the first stop on our a coast to coast road trip. Honestly we couldn't have asked for a better start. Great rooms, wonderful breakfast and very nice surroundings. Had some highly interesting conversations with the hosts. Truly a great place to stay!
Briarcliff is a gem of a motel in the beautiful Berkshires!! Arranging our stay was very easy, and as we were bringing our two dogs, a lucky find as pet-friendly is sometimes hard to find. Rooms are beautifully simple and very cozy. The breakfast is...More

Sorry, I only just saw this: there are a lot of great lake-swimming spots nearly. We like Benedict Pond, which is open to all and has a small sandy beach and picnic facilities (you can even buy a small bundle of firewood and make a little campfire) - about ten minutes from the motel. Lake Mansfield, which is in Great Barrington itself, is where the local kids learn to swim, and is a great family destination.
