We stayed 2 nights at the beautiful Clifton house up on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The house is 104 years old (if I remember correctly) and has recently been refinished. I prefer the older antique style B&B but this one was still beautiful. We checked in at the office house at Starling Rest. This looks like a neat place to stay too but doesn't have the view of Clifton House a block over. Check in was very efficient and our host walked us over to the Clifton House and showed us around. There is a nice sitting area on the main floor and kitchen with a Keurig for coffee and an ice machine. The rooms all appeared to be spacious. Air conditioning and wifi worked great. We had the "Observatory" room which is on the entire 3rd floor. It was likely the attic at one time. Wow we couldn't believe this room. It had a sitting room with couches, pull out bed and wet bar. Then the other side had a huge bedroom with two comfy chairs overlooking the Mississippi. Just amazing. Could have stayed up in that room if there wasn't so much else to see and enjoy like the balcony downstairs! King size bed and pillows were very comfortable.
The balcony was very large with a number of nice chairs, couch and couch swing. What a great place to sit and watch the beautiful sunset.
It was an easy 10 min walk to the main streets with the restaurants.
What a memorable stay!
