Very interesting to tour. Many have a recorded tour, allowing you to self-lead your way through the houses while learning about the families, architecture and history. All houses in the historic society have parking, and you are able to purchase a ticket that works at all the houses.
Buy an annual membership and see as many properties as you want for one household fee! It ends up being cheaper if you want to see more than 5. And as members you get discounts on special tours and other perks too!
Preservation Society Membership is worth it if you are there more that 1 day. They also offer student and military discounts They have a museum reciprocal program across North America so you get free admission to other museums.
Nice selection...one empty of furniture and a lesson in restoration, one for exquisite and period furniture, one as it was when the owner moved our a few decades ago and some just humongous and deliciously over the top in decor and design. I felt like I was in Italy in two of the mansions. Some had lovely grounds and all had such beautiful trees...really loved the weeping beech trees and the breezes other trees created.
It is cheaper to get a pass for five different mansions. They tickets do not expire so you can come back the next day and visit a few more mansions or come back in a year. It has to be five different mansions (listed on the ticket) you cannot do the same one twice with that specific ticket.
The accommodations were lovely. The beds were comfortable and there was 24 hour access to a large kitchen shared by all the guests. The inn provided cookies, breakfast foods, juices, coffee and tea. The location was terrific for viewing the Newport mansions and eating out. The parking was easy and accessible. The innkeeper was very helpful in providing directions and recommendations. I would stay there again. It was also quiet.
The location was close to restaurants and the Newport Mansions, which is what we were there to see. There was a nice deck in back at the marina with tables and fire pits which would have been very nice had it not been pouring while we were there.
Perfect for quick overnight to view the Newport mansions and surrounding areas.
