Who We Are

Briarwood Properties was started by Julie Ransom (pictured, left)  in 2008 as a small bed and breakfast.  However, as the business grew, guests expressed a preference for self-contained, private units over the semi-shared space of a bed & breakfast.  So in 2011 we added a one bedroom townhouse, Briarwood Home, that guests have all to themselves. 


The bed & breakfast was sold in 2013 and Briarwood Square, a two-unit property located in Bloomfield, was purchased in 2013 (Briarwood Home, the one bedroom house, remains open).  Because of the increasing demand for accommodations, we expanded again in 2016, opening this property, Briarwood Place.


All of our properties feature modern, comfortable surroundings that are anything but cookie cutter.  For less than the cost of a traditional hotel room, guests can enjoy a fully-furnished house or apartment, with full kitchen, on-site laundry facilities, WiFi, free parking, in a private, relaxing environment.


Why Briarwood?

Why Briarwood?  Our focus is providing affordable housing for our guests, but what differentiates us from everyone else is service. 
A full-time Property Manager is available to help with anything that's needed: from restaurant recommendations to providing maps and directions custom made for each guest. 
We can even refer guests to realtors to help with relocation efforts.  No request is too big or too small.  That's what we're here for!
