Rosecliff, Newport

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.

  • A beautiful “summer” house designed for hosting the perfect gala! Oh to live like that during the gilded age! It’s wonderful to tour this house and imagine what life was like.  more »
  • This is a smaller mansion, but they had a Tiffany installation which was really interesting. I loved the way everything felt so crisp and clean. It is definitely a short place to tour, because not.....  more »

  • Rosecliff was a dream. I got married there on a Thursday night and it was the absolute most wonderful fairytale day of my life. Jennie and the special events team were professional friendly and made the entire planning process smooth. There was even one day where I asked about how to number the tables and Jennie went above and beyond to email me back moments later from her phone on a weekend. Alison was a pleasure to work with too. On the day of, Jennie was so sweet and relaxed which kept all of my family and wedding party relaxed. She organized the timeline and all the behind the scenes details with my vendors to make the whole night run seamlessly. I can say enough wonderful things about her and the breathtaking mansion. The view out on the terrace and down by the fountain for the ceremony was unbelievably beautiful. The ballroom/reception and dessert room were breathtaking too. All my guests were taking SO many pictures of the entire room, ceiling, stairs, etc. Everyone said they had the time of their lives. FIVE stars all around.
  • Such a great place to walk with your loved one. Calm and serene location. Downside is there is no restroom nearby. Parking is parallel parking. Just on the right side of the road. Narrow road with people actively waking on all sides so be mindful while driving. Nice spot to enjoy nature.
