My husband and I had such a wonderful time at the Cliffside Inn. We decided on an impromptu road trip from New York and had no end destination. On a whim, we decided to explore Newport and made the decision to stay at this beautiful b&b. We were greeted very cordially by the wonderful staff. When we were showed to...

I am a student at the Naval War College and my parents came up from Georgia to visit me for the weekend. Bill and Nancy greeted them like they were old friends and my parents were immediately made to feel at home. The accommodations at the Cliff Suite were perfect for them and they both commented on the cleanliness, attention...

We came from Boston where we were disappointed in the Bed and Breakfast there. The contrast was striking. My mother is 85 yrs old. We had reserved a cottage at the Cliffside Inn, so she did not have to climb stairs. However, it was a windy, cold day and walking to and from the house would have been difficult for...

We had an incredible time at Cliffside for my husband's birthday. Elizabeth was wonderful. Everywhere she suggested for us to check out in the town, was superb. The loft room that we had was fantastic. Breakfast the following day was delicious. The entire stay was divine. We will absolutely be back!

Gabriella and Andrew, Thank you for staying with us for your birthday celebration. Elizabeth sure does have the inside track on Newport. Every time we think we've seen it all, she tells us about some hidden gem we were unaware of. We hope you'll be back soon and for a longer stay. Warmly, Nancy and Bill

We have stayed twice at the Cliffside Inn and can't wait to return. The first time we stayed was more than a decade ago and it is was an unforgettable magical stay. The owners were so kind. So beautifully decorated.
