About
Description
Briarcliff is an authentic 1960’s motel which has been transformed into a contemporary, stylish motor lodge for the 21st century traveler. Complete with a roaring pellet stove in the lobby common area, a daily rustic More continental breakfast and an outdoor fire pit which brings families, friends and strangers together, Briarcliff harkens the return of the great American family road trip. We are located directly across the street from Monument Mountain, one of the Berkshires most popular natural landmarks, five minutes from Great Barrington and Stockbridge, and under 15 from Tanglewood.
