  • Just loved visiting the summer home of Doris Duke. It was very safely done (you can choose timed tours) Loved the 2nd floor where you could learn more about Doris Duke and her life. Highly recommend!  more »
  • Often when you visit one of Newport’s many mansions, the over-the-top opulence makes it hard to imagine that anyone could have lived there. Not so with Rough Point, the home of tobacco heiress Doris....  more »

  • Neat mansion. Not as crowded as others. The staff was excellent. It was a cool day outside yet it was freezing in the mansion! My toes were frozen by the time I left. You could even tell the staff was cold. Be prepared and bring a sweater. Doris Duke has a lot of neat artifacts that she collected. I would even have enjoyed more plaques because there was just so many interesting things.
  • Amazing.!!! Doris Duke was one interesting and amazing woman! Her home a mix of past and present . You can see how she loved her home at Rough Point. Possibly my favorite or the Newport Mansion. Such a human feel here! I will always come back to visit!
