This is a wonderful getaway if you are traveling to the Jamestown/Newport area. The Cliffside Inn is right on the historic Cliff Walk and full of history, beautiful artwork by Beatrice Turner, and wonderfully appointed. We stayed in the Tower Suite which has it's own entrance, and a flight of stairs to the bed, the bathroom is on the ground floor. It was like staying in a lighthouse. Great window bench seat to look out to the ocean or just read a book. The food was excellent including breakfast and a happy hour everyday. All the staff was friendly and always willing to share advice on attractions, restaurants, and must see sights. If you are going to go Newport Mansion touring like we did, plan on 3-4 mansions a day. You won't be able to get in much more than that and do the mansion any justice. Take your time! Bill & Nancy, owners of the Cliffside Inn, will be waiting for you when you return with wine and Hors d'oeuvres for a nice little happy hour before you head out to dinner.
