The wonderful thing about the Cliff Walk is that you can walk just a portion of the trail or the entire way, depending upon the time you have and your inclination. There are stairs and some parts are more rugged than others so you need to be aware of that before you start. The walk is about 3.5 miles along... More

My wife and I had the most extraordinary stay at the beautiful Cliff Walk Cottage on the Sea. The location on the coast is spectacular, the accommodations could not have been more comfortable, and the cuisine was superb! The owners, Jennie and Stuart, are one of the nicest and most gracious couples we've ever met. Newport, RI, is to me... More

My husband and I stayed at Cliff Walk Cottage on The Sea during the Fourth of July weekend for two nights. We were so lucky that there was a last minute cancellation and that Jennie and Stuart were able to accommodate us. It was our first time in Newport and we are so happy that we stayed here! As the...

My boyfriend and I were extremely lucky to have stayed at Cliff Walk Cottage on the Sea during our recent trip to Newport. We could not have asked for a better experience. Our suite was beautifully decorated and had views out 3 sides of the house; nothing short of gorgeous. Each morning we had a full breakfast (Jennie and Stuart... More

First, thank you Jennie and Stuart for a wonderful 3 nights. I travel frequently and have stayed in many 5 star hotels and resorts but this cottage on the ocean puts them all to shame. For all the readers, I stayed 3 nights in the balcony suite and could not have had a more beautiful view of the ocean. Walk... More

My wife and I spent our first anniversary at Cliff Walk Cottage on the Sea. After spending hour after hour reviewing each of the various b&b's located in Newport, I ultimately choose Cliff Walk Cottage because it appeared to be very close to the Cliff Walk. Upon arrival, I realized I was mistaken yet pleasantly surprised because the home is,... More

My wife and I feel very fortunate to have stayed at the Cliff Walk Cottage in late October 2012, and I can't say enough about the overall experience. The accommodations are spacious and beautifully designed, while offering up some of the most picturesque ocean views I've ever seen. We stayed in the balcony suite, which included a library/fireplace, bathroom and... More

What a great weekend! We met friends in Newport and feel like we really lucked out with Cliff Walk Cottage. Jennie and Stuart were excellent hosts; their first concern was that we enjoy our visit and do it on our own schedule. The appetizers every evening and breakfast in the morning were outstanding and plentiful. Every recommendation they made, for... More

After a long drive from Pennsylvania, we were delighted to pull up to the Cliff Walk Cottage, perched directly on the ocean and the Cliff Walk. We looked forward to our stay because of the beautiful pictures posted on the inn's website but now, having seen the cottage up close and personal, can say that the pictures do not do... More

What a find! We were looking for a last minute getaway and found this charming Inn that has just opened. We were thrilled with every aspect of our stay.
