Commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of...more

This mansion is particularly beautiful in the details, but is smaller and may be better suited to a visit when you are not looking for sheer size, and the feelings of shock and awe that The Breakers or the Marble House inspire before you even...More
Headsets are provided for this self guided tour. You have the option of getting more details of the house as you walk though which lengthens the tour from 30 minutes to about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Well worth the time and very interesting.
Good but more boring than the others. Obviously opulent etc. But slightly less "wow" than marble house and breakers. (Do it first and work your way up.) Kind of an interesting story of the owner .... audio set included. No cafe or restaurant. Expect to...More
Quite astonishing place, got to imagine a grand ball here, must of have been a dream! Loved to realize that we have watched the movies filmed here! It was a lot smaller and faster after visiting the breakers, but still full of charm. Wanting to...More
Visited rosecliff recently and was impressed by this sometimes overlooked mansion. The home is simply decorated and not overdone. This home is not as massive and the others in Bellevue Avenue but should not be missed. Stunning ballroom and water views. A must see if...More
Such an elegant but inviting mansion! The preservation is spectacular. The entrance, the dining-dance rooms are so fine. The original level of details are preserved. Modern amenities do not take away from the ambiance! The upper areas are worth the visit. Take your time to...More

Hi! There is no set dress code because the Pierre Cardin exhibition is just like any other museum exhibition you would go to. Dress as fashionably as you'd like - but definitely, wear comfortable shoes is the one thing I would recommend. You can walk around the mannequins and it's part of the Rosecliff admission price. Enjoy!

Newport Mansions Visit. (1 Replies)
Just came back from visiting the Newport Mansions. My family and I visited Breakers,Marble House, Elms, Chateu sur Mer and Rosecliff. We had a great time. The price to visit all five mansions was only 82.00 for 2 adults and 2 children.We thought the Breakers was the best followed by the Elms, Marble House,Chateu sur Mer and Rosecliff. Rosecliff was actually very dissapointing.The gardens were in terrible shape with so many dead roses.Outside of the heart shaped staircase there is nothing...More

Glad you had a good time there. My wife and I were there for a couple of days last week, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. We got there Wednesday during a monsoon.........or was it a typhoon? Hard to tell. Anyway we still managed to have a good time. Checked out The Elms again, since last year when we were there we somehow got separated on the audio tour, don't ask me how. Spent a good portion of the time looking for my wife and missing the tour, so we just had to try it...More

Can someone suggest my itinerary of which Mansion to start at which would...More
