Rosecliff is probably one of my favorite mansions. Beautiful staircase, AMAZING ballroom and more simpler bedrooms than the other mansions. The outside of the house is simply beautiful. I recommend!

I never thought he would enjoy it; he was, after all, going on my behalf. But, he did enjoy our trip to Newport; we found several nice restaurants and enjoyed walking about the town.... More

Rosecliff is what I would consider a more modern house to this day and age. It is a lot more romantic and subdued in comparison to the others.

This is one of my favorite mansion interiors. When we went today, there was a collection of clothing on display, which added another layer of depth to the mansion tour. The grounds are so beautiful that I suggest going on a sunny day if you want photographs, but we were allowed to take outdoor pictures yesterday and tour the home... More

Not as magnificent as the Breakers or the Marble house, but it had a beauty of its own. Passed through a few families, it has an interesting history and beautiful rose garden.

Get transported back and time and learn about this magnificent home and the lives of those who lived there. This mansion also had a few films shot here as well. The ballroom is amazing and love the information from the audio tour.
