“the grandest of Newport's summer "cottages"”

The Breakers is a Vanderbilt mansion located on Ochre Point Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island, United States on the Atlantic Ocean. It is a National Historic Landmark, a contributing property to the Bellevue Avenue Historic District, and is owned and operated by the Preservation Society of Newport County. The Breakers is the grandest of Newport's summer "cottages" and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family's social and financial preeminence in turn of the century America.  Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt (1794-1877) established the family fortune in steamships and later in the New York Central Railroad, which was a pivotal development in the industrial growth of the nation during the late 19th century.

Very beautiful house right along the cliff walk. But not sure if it was worth the $25 per adult. They do a self guided audio tour. My kids enjoyed it.

Amazing history and beautifully detailed mansion. Must see day trip, and give yourself time for the cliff walk after your tour
