Newport RI has many fine mansions, but I think Belcourt Castle is my favorite. We went to a wedding and reception here, and it was amazing!
This was Cornelius Vanderbilt II's summer home. It has 70 rooms and was built between 1893 and 1895.
The Vanderbilt's summer 'cottage' has two porches overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. This is in Newport, RI.
The house to the right of the gate was the Caretakers home. This is part of the Mansions tour in Newport, RI.
We weren't allowed to take pictures inside the Vanderbilt's summery 'home', but could outside. I figured the open front door qualified as 'outside'.
This is the side of the Vanderbilt's summer mansion that faced the Atlantic Ocean.
This was the summer home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II. It was built to replace the first house he purchased on this location that burned down in 1892.
