Convenient to road cycling routes and also to the Shining Sea Bikeway. To get to the Bikeway, go through Goodwill Park to the Bikeway entrance on Palmer Ave (Rte 28). If you bike to nearby Wood Neck Beach, you can get in without the requisite...More
Conveniently located near all the best spots in Falmouth and Woods Hole. From this location we took a drive to Hyannis and fast ferry to Nantucket. And, a day trip into Boston for a Red Sox game. The unit we stayed in was recently remodeled...More
We arrived last week for our yearly visit, relieved to find much cleaner conditions than years past. However, our relief was short lived as the beds in our unit were horribly hard and we woke up very sore every morning. We requested a foam topper...More
We were told this resort was sooo different than it turned out to be. Paint peeling, crummy lighting, NO WIFI!, Floors filthy, the throw rug in the living room is curved up and we finally pulled it up and put it in the corner before...More
The best thing is the location. Easy, short drives to beaches and shopping. Inconvenient with no wifi in units; no evening access to phone lines. Could be such a great resort with attention to some upgrading in units and customer service details. Not the Ritz,...More

My family and just returned home from a week stay at Briarwood ending October 17th. The unit was clean as one would expect. Both blinds fell out of the windows in one of the bedrooms as they were not installed correctly using anchors. In all fairness, there were a few aesthetic upgrades in the unit we were assigned to this year. I cannot speak for any unit but the one we were in, although a representative of Briarwood told me over the phone pre visit that we were being placed in a newly renovated room, so I assume not all the units are renovated. There was new carpet, and the walls looked to be fairly recently painted. There was new leather living room sofa bed and loveseat with the "real leather" tags still on them so one would realize that they were recent upgrades. There was also a 7.99 black plastic container of impatiens infront of every two units. Sadly, the most important feature of any timeshare, comfortable beds, were left off of the upgrade list. Even with the addition of the requested foam topper, my hips were bruised and I was sore upon waking every morning. In the second bedroom with the twin beds, we were forced to take the mattresses off of the box springs and place them on the floor as the old creaking bed frames would wake everyone at the slightest movement.
Every year, my family and myself have so looked forward to our stay at Briarwood. But this reticence by the Briarwood owner/management team to provide decently comfortable and clean conditions in the timeshare units disturbs me. If our fees are not being used to properly maintain the units for the timeshare owners, where is the money going?
