Tips

  • Silver queen Tessie Oelrichs owned Stanford White's classically inspired mansion. Highlights are White's French ballroom and heart-shaped staircase. Flower Show, costume exhibits, Wine & Food Fest.
  • Only the fireplaces and chandeliers are original to the home, but the ballroom and staircase are what makes it worthy to visit. No audio tours, but scheduled guided ones.
  • The self guided audio tour is packed with interesting information.
  • Gorgeous property and lovely event venue.
  • We went to a cocktail party here with the wine and food Festival and it was so much fun
  • The self guided tour is very helpful. They have exhibits on the second floor.
  • Extremely informative Tour Guides.
  • My second mansion at Newport. It didn't have very much to it, and my small children were way too loud for the staff. Not a house to visit if you just want to walk around without the hassle of a tour.
  • Beautiful grounds, great history, and well decorated in period designs.
  • Beautiful wedding venue
  • The largest of the Rhode Island mansions:#TheBreakers, perfect example of Extravagance and Opulence!
  • Quite underwhelming if you go AFTER Breakers. Looks quite run down.
