This is a lovely, "small" mansion with beautiful grounds. Easily walkable inside and out. The 30-minute audio tour guides you through the house and explains the history and owners. In each room, additional audio options are available for a more in-depth discussion of what you are seeing.

Very good audio tour with a fascinating history. A perfect example of a Gilded Age House in Newport. Don't miss a visit to the Chinese Tea House when you are on the tour.

Buy the multiple mansion ticket to visit them all. This one is fabulous with sweeping views of the ocean from the garden. Beautiful rooms to behold with examples of their life style. A must see!

Wow, what can I say. This place was impressive. I'm not sure I would want my house all done in marble, but it was definitely impressive. We purchased the Newport Mansion experience, which allows you to visit 5 of the mansions. Totally worth it. But I would suggest you not try to visit 5 in one day. We visited 5... More

A lot of over done décor. It was over the top for me, but I can see how some people will like the way the rooms are decorated and maintained. It was interesting how they had to have the marble shipped in and the cost at time.

Marble House is a great example of the amazing wealth and excess of the gilded age. We toured four mansions, and this one has the self-guided audio tour, which we preferred. It took about an hour to go through the entire house because we listened to the full tour and also some of the detailed information on some of the... More

Marble House was one of five properties we visited while in Newport. We purchased the five mansion ticket, which is well worth the cost. When we first set out to pick five mansions, Marble House was suggested to us by a tour guide, and having seen it, I agree that it should be on your must-see list, especially if you’re... More

Very nice mansion with lots of interesting history, but it was definitely a bit too outlandish for my taste :) I wouldn't recommend visiting more than one mansion per Newport vacation because it gets a bit redundant...when you've seen one, you've seen them all. Enjoy though, because it's super interesting to see how money was spent back in the late... More

It is truly difficult to imagine the amount of money spent on this home for just one family to occupy for 6 weeks each year. Needless to say, it is spectacular!
