My wife loved this fabulous Country Estate when I brought her here for our Anniversary last year so much, that she brought me back to celebrate my Birthday. We had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful grounds, gardens and the elegant estate; truly a gem in Virginia, and the USA. Our room was elegant with a bathroom fit for a king! The three course crab cake dinner was one of the best we have enjoyed. Outstanding breakfast, too, served in the elegant, formal dining room. The kind servers were friendly and helpful.

That's the only word that describes our experience at The Clifton Inn. I don't want to leave but I have to. It's checkout time….We had the honeymoon cottage…we've been married for 21 years so not a honeymoon but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My husband had to make me get out of bed on our last day to check out by 11. Ahhhh, I love this place. Review from Pam W. at Yelp…
Established in 1799, The Clifton inn has proven to be a timeless place of rest. It brings the best of 18th Century charm and 21st Century luxury in one unforgettable experience.
