Newport, Rhode Island, is one of the most majestic destinations along the East Coast. Along with sailboats, clam chowder and crabcakes, this seaside town is home to a collection of historic mansions that sit high on the rugged ocean cliffs. Open to the public, The Preservation Society of Newport County has transformed these mansions into both museums and special event venues.
Choose from among 11 historic properties sitting on 80 acres of parks and gardens as a venue for your upcoming wedding, gala or corporate program. These mansions offer a variety of spaces to cater to the specific needs of your event, from intimate cocktail parties to grandiose weddings. Each mansion lay on perfectly manicured grounds, almost theatrical in setting. Many of the mansions feature outdoor verandas or terraces in addition to the indoor spaces. Although they don't have sleeping rooms, Newport is home to several inns, bed & breakfasts and mainstream hotel chains to host your guests for overnight.
Having toured these mansions myself, I can assure you that your guests will be in awe of the elegance that exudes from these gorgeous estates. Explore the options on Cvent's Newport venue guide.
