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.

  • I found the other mansions with interesting history, but Rosecliff had the most intriguing history to me. I found the flooded ballroom to be such a New England story!  more »

  • An audio tour with a tablet and headphones brought to life this beautiful mansion with a great view of the cliff walk. Plus the gift shop architecture was very nice too.
  • A beautiful spot for a white wedding:)
  • 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.
