When I was telling some friends about my plans to visit Rhode Island, I really wasn't sure what to do. I had never been to the area before, and I knew no one - this was a solo trip. A friend at work suggested that I visit the mansion when I was there. I took a look online, saw that it looked cool and decided to go. I must say, pictures really don't do this place justice!!!
This place is truly a masterpiece with the detail in EVERYTHING. Ceilings, banisters, floor and drapes are all immaculate. I would love to have this as my "summer cottage"...you know, if I had to.
Like the other houses that belong to the family, you cannot take pictures of the inside, however people can get a sense of what to expect by the incredible outdoor landscaping and architecture. Backed onto the ocean, there is lots of green space to run around outside.
I don't want to describe the place to you, that's for you to discover.
I would recommend the headsets that they offer when you first arrive. I didn't realize what they were at first and passed them over, but they give a detailed narrative of each room, and some history. Well worth it to pass the time (as this is a large house) as well as for informational purposes.
This place was a treat. I looked into all the "Newport Mansions" but only had time to explore one, and this is the one that I chose.
