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.

About the Innkeepers
Cathy Snow and Jeri Dwyer are friends and former neighbors. They have moved to Westcliffe from Littleton, Colorado. As business partners in the Inn, they are excited to become part of the Westcliffe community and follow in former owners Bob and Kathy Seei’s tradition of creating a welcoming environment and providing a wonderful experience for guests.
Cathy has been a small business owner in Colorado for over 30 years. She is an avid gardener and is known in her former community for her leadership, property management skills, and the hosting of innovative neighborhood events. (For example, when a neighbor claimed there was no way kale could be made edible, Cathy took it as a challenge and created a seven-course meal of all kale dishes, to which 35 neighbors showed up!) Cathy’s daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren live in the Denver metro area.
Originally from a small farm town in Minnesota, Jeri is excited to experience a small town again – this time with lots of sunshine, beautiful mountain views, and a home half a block from the library. She recently left her position as outreach director at a large suburban church where she was responsible for helping church members serve in the community, and creating and leading new programs and classes. Jeri has two young adult daughters, one in the Denver metro area and one in Ireland.
