  • Guided tours only!
  • William Wetmore's Chateau-sur-Mer was one of several Newport mansions by architect Richard Morris Hunt. The morning room has beautiful Eastlake paneling.
  • Interesting visit to an old-fashioned (now) mansion
  • Amazing and beautiful mansion.
  • Gorgeous house!
  • Huge tree that is like walking into a hideaway when you go under it - kids will enjoy
  • This is my favorite of the smaller houses you can tour. It's the first real "Summer Cottage" in Newport.
  • If Donato is your tour guide, you are in for a real treat!
  • This is the only mansion that has a live tour with a person actually speaking.
  • There is an amazing collection of Wedgwood ceramics upstairs in all colors!
  • Guided tour was very good.
  • Be ready to stand for awhile. This tour is much longer than the other audio tours.
  • Check out the rose garden near the tea house
