We celebrated our 10th anniversary this weekend and stayed one night in the Carriage House. It was delightful. The room is decorated beautifully and is very private. The Innkeepers and owners are gracious hosts. They pay attention to every detail and make you feel like family rather than guests. The room was impeccably clean, with a gas fireplace that heats...

We were a little concerned about visiting Newport while tourist season was still in full swing since we normally go in the off-season. The location of the Inn is perfect, right next to cliff walk and near the mansions, but with none of the foot and car traffic you see in many other areas. The suite was amazing-fabulous bed, 2...

The room we stayed in was absolutely lovely with fine linens and comfortable furniture. The bathroom was modern and very well appointed with a generous supply of towels and excellent bath products. But, most impressive was the warm and welcoming staff. The inn is very beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and the afternoon wine and "nibbles". We also loved... More

Cliffside Inn is top notch. My wife and I recently stayed there and were so impressed with the service, breakfast, appetizers and the amount of dedication and comfort the staff provided. This is a must and we will be back along with the rest of my family.

We are so glad you could finally make it in to see us. The St. George's Suite is a great room. I just love that shower and the coal basket fire place. We are so glad that you were able to enjoy your time away. All the best, Nancy and Bill More

We went on a spontaneous overnight trip to Newport -- we literally made our reservation at 9:30 am for that evening. From our first conversation on the phone, Nancy and Bill and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Tamara greeted us warmly when we arrived and showed us around and up to our very cozy and comfortable room which had... More

Thank you for all your kind words about the inn. The Swann room is very cozy and I'm glad that it was available for a last minute get away. The Beatrice story is quite a tale. I can't imagine a life like that. We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Newport and at the inn and hope you'll... More

It has been said that " The third time is the charm" My wife and I have now stayed at the The Cliffside Inn on four different occasions. Believe me when I say that this charming inn is a "20" on a scale of 10. I do not drive anywhere that takes close to five hours to reach, but The... More

This was our first visit to Newport and to Cliffside Inn. Bill and Nancy, the owners, and their staff, Debbie and Tamara,made us feel so welcomed. They were all perfect hosts. The Inn is a ovely, tastefully done recently restored Victorian. Everything about the Inn is up to date, immaculate, and so comfortable and inviting. They have a wine tasting... More

It was such a pleasure to have the two of you with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the Blue Room. It is so cozy and I just love the bay window sitting area. It was great to see you enjoying Newport and getting along with so many of the other guests. That is one of our favorite... More

With this being our first time staying at a b/b we didn't really know what to expect, well let me tell you it was probably one of the best places we have ever stayed.

My wife and I stayed at Cliffside Inn for one night of our 4-night stay in Newport. As we usually prefer swanky hotels whilst traveling, this was our first B&B experience. I say with complete sincerity that this property is perfect in every way. It was everything we hoped for and more. We stayed in the St. George Suite, which... More
