My friends and I decided to take a tour of one of the mansions, other than the Breakers, which we have all visited before. We decided on The Elms and was a great visit. We opted to pay an additional $15 for the private tour of the Servants Quarters and Workplace and we were very glad we took it. It... More

Magnificient but very different in many ways from others. The space is dark and depressing in many facets. It faces the bay rather than the ocean.

The mansions in Newport all bring a special flavor to the history of the early money in Rhode Island. The Elms is no different. The property is maintained to an immaculate standard. You will definitely enjoy the walk through the Elms.

I would give the Elms a 5, but my husband and I both had issues with our audio players. It was still a great visit, but it did affect our tour experience. Regardless, we intend to return for the Servants Tour. Just check your jacks and sound, etc., before you begin your tour. The layout of the house is interesting.... More

I toured several Newport mansions and all of them (except Rosecliff) were interesting, but The Elms was my favorite. It's on a less palatial scale than the Breakers, but it is both lovingly and expensively decorated in a manner that will give you a taste of Gilded Age opulence. The Servants' Life tour ($15 extra) was terrific, with a very... More

The servants tour offered a very unique look into how these huge estates were run and what went into the day to day luxury behind the scenes.

This national treasure was saved two weeks before the wrecking ball was scheduled to change this historic place into a strip mall parking lot
