Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
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. Plan to visit Rosecliff and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Newport attractions using our Newport vacation builder.

  • very nice but not my favorite however the walk around is good exercise seeing how other people spend their money for temporary residence 
  • Enjoyed the self guided tour here. Rosecliff is smaller than some of the other mansions, but delightful and definitely worth a visit! 
  • Roseclif Mansion is good but its not as great as Marble house, elms and the brekers. It's small and you can finish it in 30-40 mins
  • Perfect place for a wedding! Stunning architecture with amazing history! Great place to visit or have a party!
  • Walked through the mansion on a guided audio tour delivered through a tablet and headphones. The highlight of the property is the large ballroom and backyard views. This should be a place you visit once in your lifetime.
  • One of the quicker tours , but certainly one of the most beautiful.
  • Marble House & the Breakers definitely more impressive.
