Not only was the Inn absolutely beautiful and spotless, but the surroundings were also just grand. The food, of course, was delicious and plentiful. We spent two nights at the Inn, and the Innkeepers, Nancy and Bill, were two of the nicest and accommodating people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Hats off also to Alexa, an exceptional employee of the Inn, as well as Nicole and a fellow whose name we did not get. All of this, and the Cliff Walk only steps away! We are thankful that we had the opportunity to experience The Cliffside Inn. Thom and Rebecca, Brigantine, N.J.

Room Tip: The Victorian Room has a great bathroom and no steps to climb

Tommy and Rebecca,

What a fun time we had with all of you! I don't think I can say any guests have made me laugh quite so much. Maybe it is just the Jersey bonding. The postcard you sent was gorgeous (although Newport might be slightly prettier) and we really appreciate you mentioning the staff! They work very hard and appreciate the acknowledgment. The chats at the firepit are remembered fondly as well. I do hope you make it up to Newport to visit us again.

Best,
Nancy and Bill

Bill and Nancy welcomed us with open arms, including our Schnoodle Charly. The inn is beautiful and situated perfectly on a quiet street just steps from the fabulous Cliff Walk. We stayed in the cottage (dog friendly) and had a very comfortable suite (slightly disappointed that it was below street level). The Cliffside Inn is the epitome of what a great B&B should be. Warm, friendly innkeepers, beautiful setting, great breakfasts (to say nothing of the wonderful treats in the afternoon/evening). We would definitely return. Highly recommended!

We are so glad you found us last minute for a stay. Charlie is adorable and we are thrilled you had a good stay. While the Seaview Suite may appear to be below street level, it is actually at street level (since you go up and then down stairs). It is a bit more private and many guests like that, but please consider the Cliff or Atlantic Suites for your next visit, if Charlie comes along, or one of the great rooms in the Main House on one of the upper levels.

The recent storms have made for some great surf, so I hope you've been able to take advantage of that.

All the best,
Nancy

The house was lovely with lots of victorian charm. The hosts, Nancy and Bill were most friendly and welcoming. Arrived on Derby Day and Bill served us mint juleps while we watched the race. The two restaurants recommended to us were outstanding. One offered the best salmon tacos ever and the other introduced me to lobster rolls - absolutely yummy! The inn was comfortable and very relaxing. Would definitely recommend it to all my friends and family and will definitely return for another getaway.

Room Tip: top floors are quieter

What fun having a girls weekend in Newport! Glad we were able to add to the good time with some Derby Day action (sorry your horse didn't do better). There are tons of other great places to explore so we hope you'll be back in Newport soon. Maybe Dark and Stormy's for the America's Cup trial races are in order?

Hope you are well,
Nancy and Bill

We stayed at Cliffside Inn over the Memorial day weekend. It took us almost 5.5 hours to get to Newport from Manhattan because of the terrible traffic. Although we arrived quite late and very tired, Nancy and Bill made us feel welcome and at home.
Throughout our visit, it felt like we were staying at our friends' house, not a hotel. Nancy and Bill treated us like family and we appreciated every little thing this Inn has to offer, from cookies in our room every evening and afternoon tea or wine tasting, to fresh flowers and impeccable clean rooms and bathrooms.
We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely come back to Newport and Cliffside Inn!
Thank you Nancy and Bill for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable!

We were so pleased to have you both here for the holiday weekend. It was wonderful to watch you enjoy your time at the inn and particularly breakfast on the front porch. We look forward to having you back in Newport soon.

Best,

Beautiful inn, perfect spot and wonderfully, warm innkeepers!The evening offering of tea or wine and hors d'oeuvres (depending on the day) were a great way to unwind after a day of exploring Newport. Can't wait to return for a longer visit.

And we can't wait to have you here again! It was wonderful to see you and your friends enjoy the inn, the Derby and the other guests. The Cliff Walk (Atlantic Ocean) are a big change from Lake Michigan and we hope you make it back to the beach soon.

Best,
Nancy and Bill
