Visit Rough Point, the Newport Home of Doris Duke, now a house museum. Step into the stately English manorial style house, originally designed by Peabody and Stearns, and immerse yourself in the impressive collection of art and historic furnishings accumulated by two generations of Dukes. See paintings by Renoir, Gainsborough, van Dyck, and others, as well as Chinese porcelains, Turkish carpets, 16th-century tapestries and 18th-century furniture. Explore the beautiful grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, with formal and kitchen gardens and a stunning 270-degree ocean view.
