Rosecliff, Newport

#2 of 14 in Museums in 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.

  • Rosecliff is a beautiful white marble waterfront house with the largest ballroom of all the Newport cottages. The heart shape staircase is pretty spectacular only outdone by the realization of how much these homes cost in today's dollars, but many of these mansions were built at a time before income taxes. Rose garden notable. These homes would make any event memorable. There's a copy of this home near Edwards Gardens in Toronto and makes me wonder how many other replicas exist elsewhere. Obviously the gilded age is still inspirational!
  • Awesome experience to see the homes of the builder era, you can actually use this for a wedding venue as well! Staff was friendly, overall a great experience I actually bought a yearly membership as opposed to just a ticket!
