This mansion is primarily used for events, so there are not many furnishings in the rooms. There are several rooms on the first level and only a few bedrooms on the second level. The rest of the second level is for traveling art shows. You...More

What a fabulously beautiful mansion. Self guided audio tour provided. Well maintained piece of history.

Simply amazing that anyone in America lived in such reckless splendor. But it was fascinating to tour the home guided by the excellently-produced audio device. I listened to every single extra story throughout the mansion.

While this is a stunning home, much of it was used for an art gallery. The entry is something I'd think to see in France. A well planned out floor plan. But I left feeling like a lot of information could have been given that...More

I have mixed feelings about this mansion. After touring estates like The Breakers, Rosecliff is sparse in comparison. It's obvious that this property is frequently rented out for weddings and other events, and so as a result there are more open spaces and less to...More

I'm at a loss to understand how any structure that can fit 400 people in it's ballroom or dining area can be called a "cottage", but that's how the Golden Age rolled back then. As one of the magnificent mansions in Newport, the Rosecliff was...More

This is another beautiful mansion to tour, but of the five mansions we toured while here, this was my least favorite. Although also a grand mansion, it does not have as many original furnishings as some of the other houses. It was also remodeled more...More

First let me say that we are experienced Newport visitors. This was our 6th visit to Newport in 3 years. We always purchase the five mansion ticket and visit two mansions per trip, since the ticket does not expire it is a great deal. We...More

Seeing Rosecliff was a welcome change from the dark and dreary homes on the street. The light and airy rooms and the very good self-guided tour made it one of our highlights.

The grand ballroom. The heart shaped grand stairs. It's grand. These are the palaces of American aristocracy. It's hard to fathom the economy, the industry, the wealth, the social mores that built these estates.
