Innkeepers Bill and Nancy spared no effort to make my wife and me comfortable during our four day stay in lovely Newport. The inn is a very lovely, architecturally beautiful and comfortable place from which to explore this historic and interesting town. The breakfasts served either in the great room or, weather permitting, on the adjacent porch, are creative and delicious. Afternoon tea and complimentary wine hours provide a wonderful opportunity to compare travel notes and with, and get to know, other guests, Bill and Nancy. The staff can't do enough for you and the accomodations are simply superb, immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. The nearby cliff walk borders many of the fabled Newport mansions along their ocean fronts, providing great exercise together with million dollar seascapes.
We visit B&B's around the US regularly, preferring them to ticky-tacky hotel settings. We can state unequivocally that Cliffside is one of the most outstanding B&B experiences we've had and we recommend it highly. If visiting Newport make it your home away from home and you won't be dusappointed. (And while you are there, bring a treat for Bill and Nancy's smart, handsome little Shelty Cody and enjoy his tricks as he earns his rewards. Lots of fun...)
