The history behind this magnificent home is really worth learning. A very good experience.

I'm confused by recent reviews since it was closed for the season last weekend when we tried to go.

This mansion is doable for visitors and it's interesting to see how Doris Duke lived.

When I was kid growing up in Rhode Island in the 1960's, we all gawked at the guard dogs, security guards and the stunning Ms. Doris Duke at Rough Point when we walked the Cliff Walk. (Yes, she has very little privacy on her property on a nice summer weekend day!) Over 35 years later, when we visited Rough Point for the first time, we were enchanted by the beautiful grounds, the stunning views and the magnificent interiors. Our guide was very well informed, and appreciated my knowledge of Ms. Duke's incredible life. Rough Point has THE best location of any Newport mansion, so the views alone are worth the price of admission! VERY highly recommended for adults!
