We loved our stay, everything from the booking - warm personal service over the telephone - to our checkout, all was even better than the website promised.
Cleanliness: Our room was very clean - very - with lots of fun and useful accouterments: iPhone doc alarm clock, funky bedside shelves, resto mini fridge, authentic 60's pink sink, immaculate shower, and lovely carpet.
Great coffee: The breakfast was so worth catching each morning. For one who worries about getting a decent cup of coffee, this was not a worry at the Briarcliff! Locally roasted coffee brewed rich with a choice of milks and creams was such a nice touch. Fresh fruit assortment, homemade granola (nuts, oats, berries, seeds - yum!), yogurt, a fresh bread (pumpkin, banana, etc) plus a buttery flaky scone of the day (dill and cheddar one day, fruit the next) - these were so great to prepare us for a day on the slopes.
Personal touch: Either the proprietress or her husband or their caretaker were always on hand to recommend a museum, or just chat.
Proximity - Whether it is a grocery store you need, a choice of restaurants, museums or Ski Butternut, everything was within 5 minutes of The Briarcliff.
This was quite a lovely stay - really made our little ski vacation that much better. We're looking forward to booking our Berkshire vacation here again.
