Owner description: 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 $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.

This Mansion has such a story. I am happy to see the house has been saved so the stories can live on and others can enjoy. Although not as grand as The Breakers or The Elms this house has a story to tell. Enjoy!

A truly beautiful home with lots of family(s) histories. Not as period restored/maintained as other cottages, due to the different families to own Rosecliff.

My husband's favorite cottage.

the movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow was filmed here - it's now a self-guided tour , so you can spend a little more time in each room - I did notice that the marie antoinette statue was a lot smaller than before - they have weddings and banquets here

This place is magnificent. The audio tour is excellent! It's very well done. With the amount of people who Visit each day, the audio is the only conceivable way to provide a consistent quality experience to guests. You can just imagine the fabulous parties held here back in its heyday.
