As one of the famous Newport Mansions, including The Breakers, The Elms, and Rosecliff, The Chanler at Cliff Walk, retains its spot as one of the best weekend getaways in Rhode Island. The first mansion turned hotel built on the Cliff Walk, this charming hotel set the precedent for the rest of the Cliff Walk properties as an idyllic country retreat location.
Just a few hours drive away from both New York and Boston, The Chanler at Cliff Walk greets its guests with a lovely display of flowers and greenery. With only 22 rooms, all individually decorated, to create “an intimate setting”, The Chanler, is a favorite amongst the best Newport mansions for a relaxing break from big city living. Even in its original inception, as the summer home for Congressman John Winthrop Chanler and his wife Margaret Astor Ward, The Chanler displays a tranquil and cozy ambience that envelopes all of its guests as they stay there.
One of our agents visited this charming mansion recently and found the service at The Chanler to be “great” and a place where they “make a fuss about people”. The personalized attentiveness and care from the staff matches perfectly with the individually decorated rooms available at the property.
At The Chanler, you can choose to stay in a Manor room, an Estate room, a Signature room, an Ocean villa, or a Garden villa. Each one of The Chanler’s rooms are impeccably and uniquely decorated. We highly recommend staying at the English Trellis. One of The Chanler’s Garden Villas, the English Trellis focuses on gorgeous antiques and garden themes and enchants guests “with the double-headed shower, and a Jacuzzi outside & inside the villa”. Our agent and her guest had an absolutely wonderful time relaxing amongst the many pillows on the bed and were sure that the other rooms were just as fantastic.
Do you know what else is fantastic at The Chanler? According to our agent, the food at The Veranda, The Spiced Pear Restaurant and The Cliff Walk Terrace was “absolutely phenomenal. Every meal was superb.” The array of fresh seasonal items and fine wines added an extra breath of elegance to an already enchanting weekend.
Every day our agent awakened to an incredible atmosphere that fully replenished her peace of mind. Paired with the beach shores and the quaint shops of the Newport area, The Chanler in all its glory is the solution to frayed nerves.
