When your first impression on entering a place is that it's clean, friendly and welcoming, that's a good sign. We were greeted warmly on our arrival, and taken up to our room so that we could be shown its features and how to operate them, from our own private Jacuzzi tub to a gas fireplace. Our feelings about the place only got better. Our room, the "Loft Room," had skylights and a light rain created a wonderful ambiance. The bathroom is enormous, with the tub and a shower enclosure next to it. The Cliffside Inn has turndown service, and we found a pair of the most decadent cookies we've ever had waiting for us. They alternate tea and wine days in the late afternoon, with trays of hors d'oeuvres and snacky things, and all of the other guests were friendly and easy to talk with. The breakfasts? Delicious! They prepare an individual pot of French-pressed coffee for each couple (probably for each single guest, too). They alternate sweet and savory breakfasts, and since we were guests for two days, we got to sample both. There's no feeling of slapping mass-produced items onto your plate.
The Inn has an interesting history, too, being the former home of an eccentric artist, many of whose paintings and drawings still line the walls.
We're already looking forward to being able to return to the Cliffside Inn!More
