  • What a lovely old home. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Kathy. She did a great job highlighting the many interesting details of this stately residence. While not one of the great stone mansions Newport is so well known for, it is still an intriguing glimpse into the life of a Guilded Age family. The guided tours are quite nice in these smaller homes and the guides are very knowledgeable. Worth the time.
  • Quaint home. One of the first mansions in Newport. Knowledgeable tour guide, who also gave time for questions and to look about the room. Very nice parking area and the carriage house is the main desk which also has a clean and well maintained bathroom.
