A beautiful Italian Classical type house with a lovely garden and great views. Whilst this house was owned by considerably wealthy people, they had a sense of style and class and understatement that we found appealing. The house was used in The Great Gatsby film...More

Each mansion has it's own charm. The gardens, the artwork, the architecture. Be sure to include Rosecliff!

This place has been masterly restored. It is very beautiful although it would be nice to see a bit more of the house. It is understood though that events are still held at the house like weddings so it is sort of a working house....More

A tour of this mansion will take you back to an era when arts, beauty and grace were merged. The grounds and the building are keep in excellent conditions. You feel as though you were back 100 years in time. Well worth the visit.

Rosecliff was a beautiful stop on a recent trip to Newport. There was plenty of free parking and the crowds were at a minimum. The exterior of Rosecliff is stunning & after just having visited the Breakers we were expecting the same level of opulence....More
