The Cliffside Inn in Newport, Rhode Island is truly an exceptional place to stay. There is nothing ordinary about it. The inn itself is lovely. Set on a quiet street close to the Cliff Walk, this Victorian mansion is impeccably decorated, filled with beautifully maintained antiques and paintings. Nancy greeted us at the door when we arrived and immediately made dinner reservations for us when she heard that we had not made plans. Her recommendation was exactly what we were looking for- an intimate Italian restaurant with delicious pasta dishes and more.
We stayed in St. George's Suite which is located on the third floor and features a view of the water. There were fresh flowers awaiting us as well as an adorable swan shaped towel positioned on the bed. Cliffside Inn offered a wine and cheese hour from 5-6 which provided an opportunity to socialize with other guests. There was not just wine and cheese, but several warm appetizers, proscuitto, salami and nuts. It was an unexpected and very generous buffet! When we returned from dinner, there were warm cookies waiting for us and ice in the ice bucket! A perfect way to end an enjoyable day in Newport. In the morning, the breakfast was also a
splendid affair with homemade granola, muffins, fresh fruit and a hot entree of an omelet,
sausages and breakfast potatoes. We really felt pampered at the Cliffside Inn!
We highly recommend the Cliffside Inn. Nancy and Bill go to great lengths to make your stay unforgettable.
