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.

Rosecliff is just beautiful and the grounds overlooking the ocean are breathtaking. The Easter Egg Roll is always a lot of fun and it's neat to eat brunch in the ballroom which is typically roped off for tours. Rosecliff does not have a kid audio...More

Lovely mansion with extensive beautiful gardens at front and at rear (sea view lawn for weddings) that has hosted at least 2 major films and countless weddings. Mansions can be rented by the Newport Preservation Society.
