Pam, We are so glad you and Tom chose the Cliffside Inn for your 35th wedding anniversary celebration. We do love the Garden Suite and always try to ensure those booking it realize about the stair case. But it does add something special to the Suite. We look forward to seeing you again in January. Warmly, Nancy and Bill

My wife and I have stayed at quite a few B&B in the last ten years and we have to say it doesn't get any better than Cliffside Inn. There simply aren't enough kind words to say about this inn as it's top class all the way. First, the inn itself is spectacular both the interiorly and exteriorly. Lots of...

My recent visit to the Cliffside Inn was fantastic, all around. I stayed in Beatrice's Room which was simply gorgeous. The bed was extremely comfortable (I didn't want to get up in the morning!) and the bay windows are wonderful for view/light. The room was impeccable - spotless, luxurious and quiet. The bathroom was also stunning - very elegant, gorgeous...
