It has been said that " The third time is the charm" My wife and I have now stayed at the The Cliffside Inn on four different occasions. Believe me when I say that this charming inn is a "20" on a scale of 10. I do not drive anywhere that takes close to five hours to reach, but The...

This was our first visit to Newport and to Cliffside Inn. Bill and Nancy, the owners, and their staff, Debbie and Tamara,made us feel so welcomed. They were all perfect hosts. The Inn is a ovely, tastefully done recently restored Victorian. Everything about the Inn is up to date, immaculate, and so comfortable and inviting. They have a wine tasting...

My wife and I stayed at Cliffside Inn for one night of our 4-night stay in Newport. As we usually prefer swanky hotels whilst traveling, this was our first B&B experience.

The jewel of Newport! We stayed in the tower and had a wonderful experience. The beautiful bathroom is on the lower level so if steps are a problem be aware of the fact. Everything was clean and fresh and the whole place is one of the nicest most well run B&B's we have been in. Tamara is an excellent hostess...

We really enjoyed our second stay at the Cliffside Inn. There are many appealing aspects to this bed and breakfast.

We stayed here just one night in the Garden Suite which we loved. It is a two level room with the bath being reached by a curved narrow staircase so if you can't handle steps, then pick another room.

It was so great having you with us, if only for one night. I wish we could have accommodated you for the second night. We were so glad you enjoyed your time in Newport. I'm sorry your second night "in town" was not as restful as your night here. I do hope you'll make your way up North again soon....
