My new wife and I decided on a quick 3-day jaunt to Newport, RI for our honeymoon as we had already committed a few weeks of vacation to other endeavours. I settled on the Cliffside Inn due to the many positive reviews and the fact that it was right next to the Cliffwalk, but a bit away from the bustling Thames St area.
We stayed 3 nights in the Cliff Suite and were not disappointed! The suite was massive, yet "homy", beautifully-appointed with plenty of sun, and provided the perfect respite from months of hurried wedding planning, moving, job-changing, etc. The sitting room with the gas fireplace was a hit when the weather got a bit chilly.
Bill and Nancy are incredibly welcoming and accommodating: on top of everything else, as my wife is not exactly a morning person, they prepared a breakfast tray with the works for me to take back to our suite and allow me to serve breakfast in bed each day (i.e. they made me look good). Tip: the breakfast granola is killer.
We were already pre-planning our next visit before we left! Can't wait to get back.
