My wife, our dog Mini and I stayed at the Cliffside about a month ago and had such a great experience that we decided to come back. Our second experience was as great as our first (if not a little bit better, which I didn't think was possible). Nancy, Bill, Debbie, Tamara and the rest of the staff did an...

I was so happy when I saw the reservation that you three are coming back. Mini Bells is quickly becoming one of my favorite four legged guests ever. And we love her parents too! I think in time, even Koty will have to breakdown and snuggle her. We are so glad that you enjoyed the Atlantic Suite and that the...

This is a wonderful getaway if you are traveling to the Jamestown/Newport area. The Cliffside Inn is right on the historic Cliff Walk and full of history, beautiful artwork by Beatrice Turner, and wonderfully appointed. We stayed in the Tower Suite which has it's own entrance, and a flight of stairs to the bed, the bathroom is on the ground...

Innkeepers Nancy and Bill and their staff did an unbelievable job of making our stay one we will never forget. Cozy, intimate and romantic with a delicious breakfast the Inn we enjoyed the setting on the Cliff but close enough to town for a nice easy walk.

My wife and I decided to vacation to the New England area to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Rather than stay in Boston the entire stay, we decided to look for something out of a movie or magazine setting. Fortunately, we hit a home run with our decision to stay at Cliffside Inn 2 nights. We stayed in the cottage...

This was our first visit to Cliffside and we will definitely be back. Perfect location just off the Cliff Walk. Bill and Nancy were terrific hosts; very friendly but not intrusive. Breakfast every morning was a hot entree, along with a buffet of muffins, yogurt with fresh granola, fresh fruit and juices. We ate our breakfast on the front porch,...

This was our third time at the Cliffside and our fourth visit to Newport. The Cliffside is perfect for us. Comfortable and elegant, with a location great for walking the cliff walk during the day time and close enough to walk into town for dinner at night. The hosts are helpful and friendly without being intrusive. We look forward to...

Cliffside is an enchanted place in a charming town. From the moment you walk in there is a sense of familiarity. This place literally feels like home, and I had never been here before! I truly enjoy staying in B & B's for this reason, but some of them fall short. Not Cliffside. The house is as regal in person...
