After visiting the Vanderbilt's Marble House & the Breakers, the story behind Rosecliff is our favorite. Tess, the matriarch of this manor, was a sassy Nevadan whose taste for partying made her one of the bad girls of Newport. She once threw a party &...More

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!

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.

We enjoyed the audio tour although there was no comparison to Marble house or the breakers. However, it is a more versatile building. We enjoyed the aesthetic movement exhibit on the second floor and returned in the evening for a special program in the ballroom.

What a beautiful house! Certainly takes you back to an age gone by. Newer than a couple of the other Mansions and used in the film ‘The Great Gatsby’, and you can see why with the opulence inside, as well as the ballroom used in...More
