Commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.

We visited Rosecliff as the second house on our two for ticket after the Breakers. It is a lovely home with a beautiful lawn and view. But I would choose another of the houses as it is sparsely furnished and much of the self guided...More

After visiting The Breakers this home was a little disappointing. There were hardly any furnishings and the Pierre Cardin display was very strange to us. The lawn down to the Ocean was amazing

Gorgeous home and grounds, well worth the visit. We took the five mansion tour as it was a better value. We also took the trolley tour to them which wasted time waiting for the trolley and getting to all the homes. There was adequate parking...More

Rosecliff is by far the one "cottage" that could actually have been livable. The extra exhibit of Pierre Cardin was worth the trip to this house over one of the others.

I had the feeling of being inside a huge tomb. I didn't like the atmosphere. It is a shame that the things inside were auctioned at one point and the house does not look, or feel, as it was in all of its glory.

I have been wanting to see Rosecliff for sometime now and finally got to see it. It was magnificent. Absoutely beautful home with the most amazing views. I can only imagine what it was like when it was built. It's much smaller than The Breakers...More
