“The Rockcliffe Mansion and Juan”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

My 15 year old daughter Pilar and I had a wonderful stay. We were treated like queens and Juan made us the most amazing breakfast. I can't wait for my friends to visit the mansion when he re-opens March 15 2014. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it was so very comfortable and relaxing. I want to come again and stay on the 2nd floor. Thank you Juan, you are a true gentleman and a wonderful host...we love you. I think any age would appreciate this stay, we were in awe and still are. I can't wait to post my pictures of this most beautiful mansion and of course of our host.

“Magnificent!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Oh I really can't say enough about this stately old turn of the century house. It is truly worth the $15 admission price. Even if all you got was the tour it would be worth it. But when you ad in all the amazing history of the house and family, along with the personal stories provided by the guides and owner, it was a fun and informative way to spend an hour or so. Definitely would do it again just to see how much more they have done on the property.

“Great place to relax”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My wife Kim and I had a WONDERFUL time at Rockcliffe B&B. Juan was the greatest host we could of had. The room was awesome and the house was so interesting. We loved the breakfast! We greatly enjoyed the time on the porch with our wine and cheese. Juan spent time with us and really made us feel welcome. Mary really does a great job on the tour! I would recommend this to any couple looking for a weekend away from the busyness of life.

It is a beautiful mansion that we never get tired of. Everything about it is delightful. Museum quality furniture, stained glass, chandeliers, statues, etc. Best breakfast ever, and the owner Juan is delightful.
