We found Cliffside Inn on the Distinctive Inns of New England website and it exceeded our expectations. The inn is perfectly situated, steps away from the Cliff Walk which overlooks the ocean, and is an easy walk to the mansions and downtown. The innkeepers, Bill and Nancy, are ideal hosts, making their guests feel as welcome as if they have been invited into their charming and gracious home. Our room, the Garden Suite, which had been recently refurbished, is on two levels, making it seem as if we were staying in a small apartment. The room featured water views, a library, outdoor patio, jacuzzi and separate shower with radiant flooring, two fireplaces - it was heaven. Breakfast was first rate and afternoon wine and/or high tea with hors d'oeuvres was delightful. I highly recommend staying here and look forward to a return visit.
