This was our first time to Newport & we were hesitant to do a B&B, so we booked their Carriage House (no staircase & ample privacy). It was just steps away from the main house, so convenient for meals. It was spacious with a great bathroom, great views overlooking the grounds & had its own parking space. The owners &...

It was so lovely to have the both of you here for three nights last October. We are thrilled that you enjoyed staying in the Carriage House. That is the only room that we built from scratch so it holds a special spot for us as well. I hope you had a better winter in Texas than we had here....

If you are looking for a quiet place to spend your weekend, no need to look further. This place is for you and your loved one. The wine and cheese hour is a great time to meet other guests at the Inn and hear their stories. Once the sun has gone and down and the moon has risen you don't...

My husband surprised me with a stay at the Cliffside in over Valentine's Day weekend. We loved it so much we already booked another stay! We were in the Turner Suite and loved it! The attention to detail from the luxurious bath robes to the rose petals on the bed went above and beyond our highest expectations. The atmosphere, the...

Wow, "Absolutely Perfect"...that is a wonderful compliment! We are thrilled that the two of you had such a great stay. Your comments about the inn, our breakfast and the special touches make me smile.

My wife and I decided to stay at the Cliffside Inn after reading the trip advisor reviews and checking out the Inn's website. We selected the Grosvenor Suite. Let me say that the room was much nicer then the few pictures on the website. The room had a king size bed and the room had a love seat and two...

Friends were getting married at Cliffside Inn and invited us to join them for the ceremony and an overnight stay. The owners are lovely and made the library available for the wedding and provided a plate of cheese and fruit. A fire in the fireplace made a very private and romantic setting. We stayed for the night and had breakfast...

Thank you, Lucy, for the great review of your stay with us. Elopements are very special events at Cliffside, and we really enjoyed having the four of you stay with us for your friend's marriage.

What an amazing place to stay! We stayed in the Carriage House, comfy, cozy, clean & the bathroom suite (it's that pretty) has an amazing double sink.
