This mansion is particularly beautiful in the details, but is smaller and may be better suited to a visit when you are not looking for sheer size, and the feelings of shock and awe that The Breakers or the Marble House inspire before you even...More

Headsets are provided for this self guided tour. You have the option of getting more details of the house as you walk though which lengthens the tour from 30 minutes to about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Well worth the time and very interesting.

If planning this trip next year, don't wait for this home to open as they had few decorations. If you haven't seen it before, go in December to see the house, not the decorations.

This is a beautiful property with an interesting history. It isn’t furnished to the extent of the other house museums in the area, but it’s definitely worth a visit.

Visited rosecliff recently and was impressed by this sometimes overlooked mansion. The home is simply decorated and not overdone. This home is not as massive and the others in Bellevue Avenue but should not be missed. Stunning ballroom and water views. A must see if...More

Such an elegant but inviting mansion! The preservation is spectacular. The entrance, the dining-dance rooms are so fine. The original level of details are preserved. Modern amenities do not take away from the ambiance! The upper areas are worth the visit. Take your time to...More
