“Pretty Nice”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

First let me say that the Cliff Lodge doesn't make the Cliff Lodge, SALLY makes the cliff lodge! What an unbelievable inn keeper. She is soooo nice. The sitting room and the dining rooms are extraordinarily nice! Outdoor dining too. Breakfasts are really good. Fresh fruit, as much as you want, every morning. Orange juice cereal coffee muffins or scones or some other baked goods. Wine and cheese party on Friday night was super - you get to meet the other guests. Fresh baked cookies every night. Real nice. Only downside is some third floor rooms are extremely small which makes them overpriced. Upside they have AC but some you can't control the temperature. Overall nice place. Real nice harbor views from the widows walkThanks Sally!!!!!!!!

This is a return trip to the Cliff Lodge. We had a wonderful time. The lodge is quaint and comfortable. A perfect place to stay on Nantucket close to the ferry ,shops and restaurants.Sally the Innkeeper is an excellent host,she is there if you need her but let's you have your privacy. I thought we were the only guests and the lodge was booked. We stayed in room 2 on the second floor, it was perfect. A king bed, fireplace, two sitting chairs. A small bath with a shower which was all we needed. The little touches that Sally does to decorate the lodge and take care of her guests make all the difference. I almost forgot,the oatmeal cookies in the afternoon are the best. Breakfast is wonderful as well,home made scones, blueberry cake my favorite as well as assorted cereals,yogurt and fruit salad. We will be back. Thanks Sally

I have 3 children with the youngest being 8. Because many B&Bs won't take children under 10 and because I want the cute B&B experience, I spent hours searching for just the right location. And I was not disappointed. Everything from our bed, to breakfast, to location was perfect. And Sally was over the top sweet to my 8 year old who fell in love with her sweet dogs. It was expensive but you get what you pay for in my opinion. Highly recommend.

We stayed for a long weekend before the 4th of July celebrations in 2013 and very much enjoyed our stay at the Cliff Lodge. Our room was very cozy and the bed was really comfortable. The room reminded us of a ship's quarter and we later learned that ship carpenters used to build these houses in the lat 18th century. Sally was very helpful and knowledgeable and allowed us to make the most of our stay. The rooms were all clean and we enjoyed the breakfast - wish the times could be expanded a bit as 8:30 - 9:30 is a small window to hit! The Lodge is very close to town center which allowed for easy access to everything including the ferry. Probably a quarter mile walk to the Whale Museum. They have a bike rack at the back of the building and if you don't take your bike out on Nantucket you are missing something. The trip to Madaket is probably the most beautiful bike trail I have ever been on! If you stay at the Cliff Lodge, do not miss their widow's walk! When you get up to the deck you will have an amazing view of the town and the nearby water. We went up there to see a couple sunsets. All in all a very pleasant and memorable stay and we would definitely go back!

We always feel so welcome and happy to be at Cliff Lodge and, this time, enjoyed the Friday night wine and cheese, and meeting other guests. We always enjoy talking to Sally! We have been staying at the inn for years and it just keeps getting better and better. It is our Nantucket "home" and we can not wait to return!

Everything went smoothly while we visited The Cliff Lodge on Nantucket in early June 2013. We used a LivingSocial deal for a queen bedroom, and I would definitely go back with or w/o the coupon. The house was clean and we felt very welcomed. Request a room on the 2nd floor if you are over 6 foot, I bumped my head a few times on the 3rd floor which is more of a half-story. Other than that, no complaints!
