Commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.

Gorgeous home and grounds, well worth the visit. We took the five mansion tour as it was a better value. We also took the trolley tour to them which wasted time waiting for the trolley and getting to all the homes. There was adequate parking...More

Rosecliff is by far the one "cottage" that could actually have been livable. The extra exhibit of Pierre Cardin was worth the trip to this house over one of the others.

I had the feeling of being inside a huge tomb. I didn't like the atmosphere. It is a shame that the things inside were auctioned at one point and the house does not look, or feel, as it was in all of its glory.

I have been wanting to see Rosecliff for sometime now and finally got to see it. It was magnificent. Absoutely beautful home with the most amazing views. I can only imagine what it was like when it was built. It's much smaller than The Breakers...More

I wish we would have had luck with our audio devices as did previous TripAdvisor commentators did. We love historical stories, but could not hear clearly even with the volume turned way up on the three different devices we tried. One person in our party...More

The tour of this mansion was great. Audio self-guided devices worked well. Be sure to check out standard membership plans if you plan to visit multiple mansions.

This one is not as stunning as the other big mansions. But this one along with the Breakers is open at 9am,, so it can be visited before other mansions open
