I've never written a review on Tripadvisor, but felt compelled to write one for Cliffside Inn after my girlfriend and I spent an amazing two days with Bill and Nancy over Columbus Day weekend. The house is gorgeous. We stayed in the Grosvenor Suite and loved it - lots of windows let the sun in and brightened the room each morning. But maybe our favorite aspect of the room (or at least my girlfriend's) was the huge bathroom with its incredible shower and jacuzzi.
Location was fantastic as well. Very close to downtown Newport, but more importantly, a stone's throw away from the Cliffwalk - close enough that we woke up early our last morning to watch the sunrise over the ocean. I seriously don't think we'd have had the willpower to overcome our sleepiness had the walk to the Cliffwalk required more than 2 minutes. We also got to enjoy the firepit some after sharing a bottle of wine on the porch Saturday night.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience. Bill and Nancy were super-gracious and welcoming (as was Cody!). The only slightly negative thing I can think of is that parking got tight when the inn got to full capacity - a high-class problem, but it got tricky getting cars in when people started to return from being out at night. And my only regret is that given all these great reviews, we might find it hard to book a room in the future.
