I had been to Newport before and thought I had visited all the mansions. Kingscote was new to me and it was a very enjoyable tour. It is different in just about every respect from what you expect. It is far smaller, made of wood,...More

Loved our tour of Kingscote. It was so much more personal than the huge tour groups through the bigger mansions. This house inspired me so much, I decorated my Living Room in my House after the Parlor at Kingscote

This small house is well decorated and encompasses only original artifacts which is unusual on Bellevue Avenue where many mansions listed their objects. The guided tour helps you entering the gilded ages and it is fun visiting.

This fine example of a 1841 mansion, was almost destroyed for ‘the sake progress’. Fortunately, it was saved and we can still enjoy the fine design and craftsmanship that this mansion represents. It is just lovely mansion to tour.

I would have liked to have been friends with the woman who owned this home....she must have been a hoot to have been around. Very quirky and fun. See this home, it's well worth it.
