Overview

Commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.

Rosecliff is one of the Newport mansions that offers self guided tours that you can take at your own pace. They provide a cell phone with an app that will walk you through the mansion. You get a story in each room and can hear...More

In my opinion, this is the best mansion in Newport, and easily the one I would choose to live in if I had the choice. Unlike many of the others, most of the furniture here is not original, as there was an incident where some...More

Purchased ticket thru Viking Tours. We were dropped off at the Rosecliff during our trolley mansion tour. Rosecliff price includes an audio headset for hearing the history of the Rosecliff mansion. Wonderful view of the water from this house...totally worth the price of ticket to...More

I loved the stories they told of the lady of the house. It was all so real, as if we were back in that time period.

Having just been at the Breakers, this mansion was a tad more "believable" and reasonable as a fancy home. You could actually walk up the grand staircase. It's too bad that they had an awning over the "patio" as it detracted from the opulence of...More

Tragic stories lead to amazing history and now the sight for events. Interesting design with open flow through the middle of the ballroom.

My husband & I have been here 2x's before and this 3rd time was disappointing. They've turned the entire 2nd floor into a fashion showcase for Pierre Cardin. This is not what the house was intended for. We paid to see the history of the...More

A stunning mansion and breathtaking views of the water from the backyard. It was beautiful to walk through and experience. You're given a head set and allowed to do a self guided tour. If you're into history you'd appreciate it. If not it probably isn't...More

This house is where part of The Great Gasby was filmed. The rooms are furnished and dressed in the period and provide an insight into how the very rich lived. The grounds with fountains and gardens are well worth seeing together with the sea views....More

This was disappointing after touring the Breakers and Marble House. It was a big party hall back in the day but no real charm or decor worth paying money to see. Skip it! It's really not worth the half hour audio tour at all when...More
