I visited Marble House in April 2022. I visited The Breakers in the morning, walked on the Cliff Walk during lunch time and then visited Marble House. I was able to park in the parking lot. I upgraded my ticket to The Breakers to include Marble House for an additional $8 making a total of $34 for two mansions. Marble House is smaller than The Breakers but still spectacular. I visited the Library, Parlor, Dining Room, Bedrooms, and many other rooms. I was able to get though it in 30-45 minutes. They had a nice gift shop and also restrooms. Afterwards, I ate lunch at the Chinese Tea House (located on the Marble House grounds) - hummus vegetable wrap, multigrain chips and a Diet coke. The ambience was like a Chinese temple with a view of the ocean.

The Marble House is a fabulous Bellevue Avenue mansion built by William Vanderbilt as a birthday gift for his wife, Alva. Of particular note is the Gothic Room featuring gorgeous stained glass. The kitchen and service entrance give an interesting glimpse into what it takes to run the house. Apparently Mrs. Vanderbilt hosted suffrage rallies in the Chinese Tea House on the back lawn of the house and even had special “Votes for Women” China for these occasions. Highly recommend touring this beautiful mansion. Free parking in a lot across the street, included in the price of admission. BTW, you can buy a discounted ticket for 2 mansions of your choice. The price is $20 for one, $34 for two.

Was the summer cottage for Mr. and Mrs. William K Vanderbilt. Mansion built between 1888 and 1892. Lovely tour and worth the visit.

Download the Newport Mansions app. We listened to the narrative as we moved from room to room. t was a very well-done overview of the mansion, family and the gilded age in general.

Because the Breakers is SO Over the Top that this is just “fancy” afterwards. Beautiful home, gorgeous grounds, not enough docents to ask questions of.

Marble house is one of the 3 mansions usually visited by visitors to Newport. It was built in 19th century for William K. Vanderbilt. As the name suggests, this mansion is practically covered in marble, widely used throughout almost every section of the mansion. Health protocols were strict, mask need to be worn at all times, which was a good thing / policy during this pandemic time. The mansion is really big and beautiful, it’s nice to see how the rich people in the past lives and spent their money on… worth a visit if you’re interested in mansions.

We have been on tours of the Breakers, The Elms, and Rosecliff before, so we added the festive Marble House to our repertoire. There were many rooms with Christmas trees fully decorated, and the history of the Vanderbilts was very interesting. It would have been fun to have brunch at the Tea House out by the Cliff Walk.
All this splendid marble throughout for just 6 weeks out of the year! It will last forever.
We spent about 2 hours strolling about.

The Marble House is a truly magnificent and well developed Beaux Arts style mansion in Newport Rhode Island.

During our honeymoon in the fall of 2018, I brought and treated my wife and myself for a visit and self guided tour of this wonderful historic attraction.

Built between 1888-1892 and designed by renowned architect, Richard Morris Hunt, the Marble House served as the summer cottage for William Kissam Vanderbilt, an American businessman and philanthropist and member of the prominent Vanderbilt Family and his wife, Alva Vanderbilt.

Due to its rich heritage, amazing furnishings, and stunning architectural features, the Marble House is listed on the National Register Of Historic Places, designated a US National Historic Landmark and designated a US National Historic Landmark District Contributing Property.

The Marble House is now a historic house museum run by the Newport Preservation Society.

What my wife and I most admired about the Marble House is its most recognized feature, the marble based structure and layout of the house. The house is completely decorated with marble (500,000 cubic feet of marble) and it enhances its incomparable grandeur and opulence.

In addition to the house marble features, my wife and I also loved the house’s exterior facade, and its grand staircase which is made up of yellow Siena marble.
We also loved the house’s numerous paintings and furnishings , most notably an 18th century ceiling based painting which features gods and goddesses and the Gothic room which contained the Vanderbilt’s
collection of Medieval and Renaissance style objects.

Both my wife and I highly recommend for everyone visit and explore this wonderful historic landmark!!!

Didn't see Marble House on our first trip, but so glad we did on the second trip. One of the open properties, even in COVID.

Amazing to see how the other half lived in the late 1800's when they had money to burn. A written description of the rooms will not do the mansion justice. All I can say is that my two bedroom would be probably be a closet in the Marble House. I found it amusing that after spending $40 to tour the mansion, the Preservation Society was requesting donations at the end of the tour. I understand that the Society bought the Breakers from Vanderbilt's heirs for $366,475 in 1972. If all goes right with my Power Ball picks this week, I may offer them three times that amount for the Marble House - a cottage in comparison to the Breakers.
