The convenient location of this motel is so good you can smell the trees as soon as you step out of the car and feel your city cares diminish instantly. I stayed here for a night on a recommendation as an escape from NYC after a busy trip across the States as I’d never visited New England before. Run by ‘cool Brits’ Clare and Richard Proctor, the Briarcliff is undergoing a serious makeover right now.
The mood board on display in the lobby shows just how exciting their eye for design is. Clare is bringing her obvious good taste into full use over the next couple of months to transform this 16-room motel into a cool, relaxed and welcoming boutique retreat or stopover whether you are visiting for golf, nature and antiques, or craft beer, food and tourism.
Clare and Richard have apparently owned a home in the area for more than five years, so know all the great places to check out, whether it’s a car ride to the country or the best places to shop and eat. They are genuinely delighted to share with you their insider knowledge while making sure you have a relaxed stay. This place is certainly one to watch and I will be back to visit just as soon as I can.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- New English owners Clare & Richard Proctor have turned this classic 1960 motor lodge, with its spectacular view of Monument Mountain, into a cool 21st century b&b. We offer great value, clean comfortable rooms with a stylish edge, free wifi, a home-made breakfast of scones, muffins and granola with locally-roasted coffee, and a warm welcome. Chill out on the deck in summer, or by the stove in our guest lounge in winter. We are five minutes from Great Barrington and Stockbridge, and under 15 from Tanglewood. ... more less
