Cliff’s Edge Inn is located near the western edge of the main street running through the historic towns of Silver Cliff and Westcliffe. The Inn building was originally the train station for the narrow gauge railroad from 1880 – 1890, and in 1901 became a boarding house for the section workers - the men assigned to maintain the rails in the valley section of the rail line. The Inn building has been inhabited and expanded over the years by the founding families of Westcliffe, CO. (If you're interested in this history of the Inn building, please read our "History of the Cliff's Edge Inn")
We are happy to be part of this thriving and beautiful little town. As we settle in and make Westcliffe our home, we will be exploring the community and passing on what we learn to you, both on this page and through our Innkeepers' blog. Please stay tuned for news of local events, small businesses, tourist attractions, adventure destinations, favorite restaurants, local craftspeople, and more!
