I travel rather extensively throughout Massachusetts for business and sometimes for pleasure. When one travels to our "touristy areas" - Berkshires/Cape Cod - it can often be a gamble on accomodations, meaning they can be overpriced and not comfortable or clean. The Briarcliff, which I stayed at the for the first time last month, was sensibly priced, clean, updated and was clearly a labor of love for its new owners. I had had a long day of driving and meetings, the owners gave me an excellent recommendation for dinner - an indication of their commitment to being part of the local fabric - and returned to my room to watch the Red Sox on a new flat screen TV! The bathroom was immaculate and the bed was a delight. In the morning, I crossed the street and took in a beautiful dawn hike on Monument Mountain. I returned to a healthy and nicely presented continental breakfast, cleaned up and headed out having felt like I actually escaped the rat race for a bit. In the future, I would return for business and I would bring my family.
