Boutique Bed and Breakfast Accommodations
Policies & Amenities
Available April 15th through November 11th (2023)
To maintain the integrity of Rockcliffe Mansion as an historic house museum, the Mansion limits the number of available B&B rooms per night to a maximum of four. Once we reach this capacity on any particular night, the remaining chambers cannot be reserved. This limitation allows our Staff to provide the most personal, individual and intimate experience for our guests, while maintaining the Mansion and its artifacts in the best possible state of preservation.
For information regarding the Chambers available, photos of each Chamber (along with its associated private Bath), and Rates, please visit the Pages of our Menu entitled: "B&B: 2nd Floor", "B&B: 3rd Floor", or "B&B: Suites". To make a reservation on-line, please visit the Page of our Menu entitled: "Availability/Make a Reservation", and, on that Page, click the button entitled "Availability/Make a Reservation".
