The Palms Cliff House Inn

June 6, 2010

The Palms Cliff House Inn Sign

I’ve been driving past The Palms Cliff House Inn entrance (Hwy 19, ocean side, just north of Hilo) for over five years, promising myself to stop there one day to see the property.  This afternoon, I had a chance to attend a “High Tea” at the Inn.

We were lucky enough to be there on one of the most stunning “blue sky” days I’ve seen in a while…of course, it may have just seemed more amazing because we were enjoying the day with friends in such a beautiful tropical retreat!

Here are a few photos from our morning:

A site for weddings - you can see why it's called the Cliff House!
