Trumbull, Connecticut1 contribution
We had two rooms and both were crisp and clean with a historical flair. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee unbelievably good! We could walk to downtown in 5 minutes and Jetties Beach was about a 20 minute walk. There is a beautiful flower covered patio where you can have breakfast outside if you prefer or even bring back lunch or takeout if desired. We also thoroughly enjoyed going out onto the roof and looking out over Nantucket from the Widow's Walk. Comfortable lounge chairs on the back lawn great for reading a book or enjoying happy hour! Madelon went out of her way to make sure all of our needs were met and made us feel right at home. Our group consisted of myself, husband, and two twenty something children and everyone loved the Cliff Lodge! We are already planning our next trip back!

Thank you Maddie and Lisa - your place is amazing and you ladies did a phenomenal job at making us feel right at home!

My wife and I were looking for weekend trip to Nantucket Island but found finding a place to stay was a challenge. We stumble on Cliff Lodge and found a room available. We made a great choice! Everything far exceeded my expectations. Breakfast was great with enough choices to accommodate both my wife and I. Centrally located and walking distance to restaurants, ferry service, and beaches. Great place to stay!

Cliff Lodge Inn is an absolute warm and charming bed &breakfast! Innkeepers Madelon and Lisa made my stay feel like I was at home. Their hospitality and kindness reflects the true meaning of wonderful B&B. My room was spectacular and the bed was so comfortable. The ground were absolutely breath taking. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the evening relaxing. They truly made me feel special as a guest of their Inn. What can I say, you must stay at this Inn while visiting Nantucket. Its true Nantucket charm! I will be returning in the fall

Cliff Lodge is a Nantucket gem. Innkeepers Madelon & Lisa made my accommodations so welcoming and wonderful that I extended my stay. My room was fresh and clean upon arrival with hydrangeas and treats by my bed and my own beach chair as requested. Every morning I looked forward to sitting in the garden to enjoy my custom gourmet breakfast. Ice and new beach towels were always available. I truly felt like a special guest in this beautiful home atop Cliff Road. Easy walk to town or beach, the location can’t be beat. I can’t wait to return this quaint bed and breakfast!
