Spectacular! Kept seeing scenes from Gatsby in this one. I think this house can be rented for weddings and events. Seems our guide to us it rents for around $40k.

While we were touring Rosecliff there was a young lady and her mother meeting with an event planner. I assume they were discussing wedding plans. What an amazing venue it would be for a wedding!

This is an update on a review that I wrote in June 2012. The audio devises have been updated and are definitely better than they used to be, but I had a problem going back to the narration of a room. If I missed the...More

This is a lovely place. The audio tour is well done. Recommend to listen to some of the extra recordings which give some fun facts.

We enjoyed this gorgeous mansion. We are so grateful to the Preservation Society for all they do to offer the opportunity to visit these Mansions. Pretty chandeliers and staircase.

The largest lot is at the Breakers which is located close to most of the other mansions. Smaller lots at other locations. There is a shuttle from a Newport visitor center to all locations in Newport
