I loved this home...the marble was beautiful. The story of Alva Vanderbilt and how she made this house her showpiece. Hard to believe it was once used just as a "storage" house...crazy! I would recommend seeing this home and hearing the story behind it.

If you love design and history, this is a MUST while in RI. We really enjoyed the audio tour and learning about the Guilded Age--such an era of opulence. This is a busy attraction, so consider going during an "off" time to avoid the crowds.

As a realtor, house tours are really enjoyable for me. This one didn't disappoint. Beautiful example of the gilded age. Loved the story about the family and wife, who was such a strong woman regarding woman's rights. Well spent hour!

This "cottage" has less square footage than some of the other Bellevue Avenue mansions but the incredible amount and beauty of the different marble used is amazing. The audio tour is free and very complete. For instance, this mansion only has one guest room as...More

Yes, like the Breakers etc., the Marble House is an amazingly extravagant exposition of how the US answer to royalty lived. It is an amazing building, and the use of light and mirrors to illuminate the rooms is stunning. The grounds must have been a...More

One of the mansions open to public tours, we went on a sunny weekend in July and the crowds were manageable. With the headphones to narrate details about the house and each room, it's jaw-dropping entertainment.

I took out a membership as I plan to return to the area this summer...Well worth it...as it also gives a discount on purchases.
