Welcome to The Vanderbilt

One of Newport’s best-kept secrets

Originally built in 1909 by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, a scion of the wealthy Vanderbilt family, the property is a vintage Newport mansion meticulously restored to its former glory, just minutes from the charming waterfront. Come here for elegant fireplaces and museum-quality artwork in the lobby entrance, Christy’s Gallery and Snooker Room—along with pampering worthy of any railway baron. In the summer, enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the Garden Terrace and evening drinks along our popular rooftop bar with sweeping views of Newport Harbor.

Meet the Coronet— a schooner yacht first launched in 1885 and was one of the most elegant sailing yachts of her time. Under restoration at The International Yacht Restoration School since 1995, the Coronet Building is open to the public for viewing and only a 15 minute stroll from The Vanderbilt’s front doors.

On Wednesdays throughout the summer months, the renowned Aquidneck Growers’ Market awaits a 10-15 minute stroll from The Vanderbilt. Take your pick of seafood, colorful produce, local mushrooms, fragrant flowers and other specialty products—but whatever you do, save time to grab the famous, juicy pork taco that’s sure to run down your hands and beckon you back for seconds.

Go There’s Nothing Sweeter Than A Summer Spent In Newport

My ideal day in Rhode Island starts with a morning hike spent amid nature at the Norman Bird Sanctuary. With 325 acres and seven miles of marked hiking trails, there are many routes to choose from but I always seem to opt for the Hanging Rock Trail. The trails close at 5:00pm, so save your sunset for Sweet Berry Farms— which takes me to my next Rhode Island must-do.
