Create an itinerary including Rosecliff
Having served as a setting in films like "High Society" and "The Great Gatsby," Rosecliff stands out among the opulent mansions of Newport. Take a self-guided tour of the home at your own pace and choose between what type of information you would like to hear. For example, after listening to basic information about the room, you can choose to learn about the architecture, specific furnishings, or life in the Gilded Age. Walk up the famous heart-shaped staircase and enjoy the views of the grounds outside. Photography isn't permitted inside the mansion.

  • Beautiful gilded age mansion. The guides from the preservation society were very informative and helpful. The grounds are gorgeous and perfect for some selfies.

  • Vanderbilt youngest son owned the Rosecliff. Ornate yet not overdone. Library has a distinctively unique ceiling. One painting was beautiful, but didnt think to zoom in on plaque as sitting room roped off. Their bathes were not shown for access. Gift store and public restrooms in basement. A rose garden renovated albeit was on south side.
  • Rosecliff is my favorite Newport mansion! The rooms are spacious, colorful and have great views of the ocean. The audio tour is also great so be sure to download the free app so you can enjoy hearing about the fascinating history of this magical place.
