Overview

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.

Lovely 'cottage' overlooking the cliffs. The public spaces were breathtakingly beautiful with manicured grounds , on site parking and views overlooking the cliffs. A must see

While you don't tour as much of Rosecliff as some of the other mansions, it is still worth a visit. I wish there were more of the upstairs rooms on the tour but my impression was that much second floor had been updated. It is...More

Lots to see throughout the mansion and was also given headphones and iPad to hear some history about each of the rooms. There was also a fashion exhibit. Wish more of the rooms were open to visitors. Grounds are also beautiful, everything is beautifully landscaped,...More

Just a beautiful place! I could easily spend hours at this one location. I can't wait to return since there is so much to view and appreciate. One visit is not sufficient.

This house was built to impress. The history of the woman who built it was fascinating. The biggest ballroom in Newport was lovely.

After touring the Breakers and the National Museum of American Illustrators, we asked some friends which other mansion we should go to in the limited time we had. They suggested Rosecliff, and so we went. What a disappointment! Spectacular view of the ocean, it is...More
