My boyfriend and I stayed for 5 nights in late August/early September and were beyond impressed with our experience. Madelon and the entire staff were extremely thoughtful and welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay, including beach chairs, sun umbrella, beach towels, cooler, and of course, some Cisco beers! The B&B was spotless and we felt safe thanks to their COVID protocols. Our room was very cozy (mattress was so comfortable it was hard to get up each morning) and we absolutely loved the delicious breakfasts delivered to our room each morning. And of course, the central location to town was wonderful - we could walk to most restaurants and shops within ~10 minutes. Overall, we would recommend Cliff Lodge 10/10 times and cannot wait to come back!

Property's Favorite Review
We travel to Nantucket every summer, & have stayed at a variety of bed and breakfasts, Cliff Lodge was my favorite for many reasons! Prior to arriving Medelon sent a detailed list of all the restaurants open during COVID, and did such a great job communicating with us. The Cliff Lodge is perfectly located downtown but has a beautiful private backyard where we could relax and enjoy the gardens. The rooms are beautifully decorated with crisp white linens from Matouk and beautiful artwork from a local gallery. The best part of the stay is the delicious homemade breakfast delivered to the room every morning! Madelon and Lisa your Inn surpassed all of our expectations. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be bACK!!!

My husband and I stayed for our anniversary and cannot wait to return to this B&B. The decor was great and everything was extremely CLEAN! Madelon was so welcoming. They accommodated my husband's GF breakfast, which was delicious. The grounds and the common areas were perfect, and it was a quick walk to all down town restaurants and shops. This was a perfect getaway for us and we highly recommend!

I was impressed with the cliff lodge before we even arrived. The team provided restaurant recommendations in light of the season and covid, allowed for early check ins, and just seemed incredibly nice. The thoughtfulness that went into everything during our stay was impeccable- towels for the beach, beach bags, and umbrellas were just some of the niceties that were provided. The place was beautiful, an easy walk from the ferry and into town. Mattress was great and I’d love to know what kind it was ! I will be back! Thank you so much ! The photo is from the widows walk on the roof available to guests.
