A recent review from the knot

Beautiful setting and easy to work with! (5 of 5 stars)

The Eisenhower House provided the perfect setting and back drop for our wedding. The house, which was originally built for the commandant of Fort Adams, used by President Eisenhower as his summer White House and is now owned by the state, was renovated this year and is absolutely stunning! The classic vintage feeling is paired with a true elegance. Our guests adored the property and all that it offered. We had the wedding on the lawn underneath a tent, overlooking the Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge, providing one of the most stunning views of Newport. The house provided a lively, warm atmosphere during our cocktail hour and a place for quiet respite during our reception. We also loved that there were bathroom facilities for all our guests on the property and we didn't need to bring in mobile bathrooms. I loved visiting the house prior to our wedding and taking in new details each time - from the carved etchings on the stairwell to the original light fixture in the bridal suite. The house is simply gorgeous. However, one of our most positive experiences with the Eisenhower House was working with the site manager, Joan. She was helpful and supportive. She was always available to answer our questions and give guidance where we needed it. She worked with us to make sure that we had our special day exactly the way that we wanted it. Any bride and groom who books here is sure to have a very special and memorable wedding. My husband and I love the Eisenhower House and look forward to having it forever in our memories of this momentous day in our lives!
