My partner and I stayed in the Cliffside after reading reviews here on Tripadvisor. Although there were limited pictures online because of the renovations, I'm glad I trusted the reviews because it was exactly what I would've wanted, and more. Just steps from the Cliff Walk with views of the harbor. We stayed in the Atlantic Suite in the cottage. At first I thought I would be disappointed that I wasn't staying in the main house but our room was spacious, clean and beautiful. We LOVED the skylights and the wood paneled ceiling, made us think we were in a tree house! Our bathroom was enormous and both fireplaces were appreciated. Bill and Nancy were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed amazing weather and were so thankful since we enjoyed the firepit SO MUCH! Bill found us lounging by the firepit after enjoying some of the Oktoberfest activities and mentioned how he should invest in some outdoor pillows, perhaps we'll enjoy them the next time we visit!
I love the idea of a bed and breakfast (this was my first experience) and love antique/vintage architecture/furniture but was hesitant since so many other B&Bs online looked dingy and worn out, not the Cliffside. They did such an amazing job maintaining the history of the building both inside & out but it felt fresh and updated from the paint on the walls to the bedding. Excellent job, we're going to recommend this wonderful inn to our family & friends.
