Part of me wants to give it 5-stars but I sort of reserve that for the truly spectacular spots. This was a lovely lovely place and we'd go back in a heartbeat. It is a very attractively re-decorated and revamped motel so you have your...More
Every detail is perfect with a clean scandinavian/Ikea vibe and a european style breakfast. But the most amazing thing was that an acquaintance actually made a reservation at a different motel but showed up at Briarcliff at 11:30 pm and entered the room as arranged....More
This place is uniquely personal in many ways, from the comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms, to the welcoming common areas, and the yummy breakfasts featuring homemade granola, local milk and yogurt, good coffee, and delicious muffins and scones baked by your hostess. Not to mention...More
Our family (two teens) of four spent two evenings at the Briarcliff. The motel is lovely, and the owners have put real thought into the updated and functional design of the rooms. There is a large living room sitting area in the main office where...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.
