Rosecliff is nice but the Breakers and Marble House is the Top 2 to see. This mansion is a guided tour so you will have to wait versus the other 2 mansions you put on your headphones and go (The Elm is self guided also). The second floor is under renovation so you will see about 2/3 of the mansion.... More

This mansion was built to entertain and compete with some of the other grand mansions in the vicinity. It was modeled on th French Trianon and has a long ballroom to prove it. The tour is with a guide and is shorter than in some of the other places. Rosecliff is used for parties and weddings which makes it somewhat... More

We could only see part of the house as they were remodeling part of the second floor. I like the outside of this mansion the best, very feminin in appearance. The ball room is the big attraction it is very clear that this house's main function was to host parties. The rose garden was poor.

I've been graced with this beauty, the Rosecliff mansion - host to many well-noted parties, classic movies, and historical moments. I went for a friend's wedding and was simply in awe. The view from the back, capturing the fountain sitting on lush green grass, against a backdrop of ocean, with the sun setting on the horizon is just the cherry... More

This is a great house with an amazing story. Tours are guided which is nice because you learn so much about the property and its history. Our guide was entertaining and knowledgable.

I recommend seeing all of the mansions offered on the mutli-ticket. If you are pressed for time, I advise viewing the mansions in this order of priority: 1. The Breakers 2. Marble House 3. The Elms 4. Chateau-ser-Mer 5. Rosecliff The Rosecliff tour is led by a docent, which is wonderful and allows for a more personal feel and the... More
