This was our 5th visit to Newport, but our first stay at the Cliffside Inn. Friends of ours had raved about their visit, so we decided to break our tradition with another property in town and give Cliffside a try. We love the location, and I think we have found our new home in Newport! When you stay at a 5 star B&B you expect excellence, and Cliffside certainly had everything, and more, than we expected. There was something else about our stay here that just made it feel special. It is hard to put your finger on it – it’s just a feeling you get when everything has been so well thought out, and there are pleasant surprises at every turn, and it all feels very natural. We stayed in the Carriage House, a detached building with a private entrance. After getting a tour of the inn and a description of the day’s activities, we were escorted to our room. We just smiled to each other as we walked in; the four poster bed (very comfortable sleep), the fireplace, the classical music playing, the sliding barn door to the enormous bathroom, the cathedral ceiling and an antique ceiling fan, soothing colors, comfortable furnishings, the bay window looking to the ocean by day and the fire pit by night – nicely done! I don’t want to make this sound like an Academy Awards speech, but thanks to everyone who made this our best stay in Newport -Tamara, Nancy, Jackie, Debby, Bill (the owner), “T” and Nichole. We have already booked our next visit this fall.
