This house isn't as big or grand as the mansions in Newport. It has more of a homey feel. The previous owner liked to do needlepoint, and her work was displayed on many of the chairs in the house. She also was quite a fan...More

My son and I decided that this year we'd visit all the (Preservation Society) Newport Mansions. Chepstow is a large house, but is feels like a "home" Some of the Mansions look like a museum, wonderful; but large and imposing. Chepstow feels like the owners...More

Chepstow was an amazing, quirky, wonderful home. As it was lived in until 1997, there is this wonderful history meets modern feel to the house that you don't really get elsewhere. Nancy was lively, humerus, and an overall amazing guide.

One of several mansions I was able to tour. This is a guided tour on the top of each hour. Pictures are permitted, but no flashes. Each of the Preservation Society homes offers a parking lot by the house for free or you can walk...More

While in the area we toured this mansion. The tour guide was knowledgeable with the history of this mansion. She allowed lots of time to look around and ask question.

When we drove up I thought the house was a bit small in comparison to some of the other cottages such. While it is smaller it was occupied until a much later date and the furnishings and lifestyle are much more relatable. I don’t have...More
