We needed a brief respite close to home. Having recently decided to try inns found in the Select Registry of distinguished inns, we searched for inns in New England. Cliffside has such history. It was the home of a mysterious artist of the Victorian era, and it had the elegant but comfortable ambiance we were seeking. The Inn is a few hundred feet from an entrance to the famous Cliff Walk where we took our daily strolls, with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the historic mansions on the other. The gracious hospitality of innkeepers, Nancy and Bill, who couldn't do enough to make you comfortable. From afternoon tea, to evening wines, to unique breakfasts (cardamom in morning muffins--yum!), it was all so delicious. And, it has a beautiful sunken garden with a fire pit for cool evenings. Close to home or a destination inn, the Cliffside is an outstanding experience!
