Newport mansion built for an Astor, with stately rooms, gourmet dining and crashing Atlantic Ocean views
Newport has long been home to the gilded elite's most extravagant summer mansions — and the Chanler is one of the most elegant. Built for an Astor and facing the crashing waves of the Atlantic, it exudes grandeur and privilege. Stately rooms, refined dining and exquisite views combine to make you feel like high society, at least for a night. Public spaces are opulently dressed with parquet floors, a huge crystal chandelier and carved marble fireplaces, while the 20 guestrooms are individually designed in different styles, with one-of-a-kind bedframes, antiques and elegant stone bathrooms (some with oversized Jacuzzi tubs). For additional privacy, there are also villa rooms in the garden and rooms overlooking the ocean. Gourmet meals are served in the grand dining room, more casual Veranda or alfresco Terrace during warmer months, and for alternative pampering, in-room spa treatments are available on request.
In the Area
While in residence, you can check out how the Chanlers’ neighbors lived by visiting other mansions such as the Breakers, the Vanderbilts’ 70-room palace. And better yet, you’ll be escorted around: The Chanler provides SUV transportation to all Newport sights. Or stroll along Cliff Walk and stop in when a mansion strikes your interest — then come home to your own. If you stay in the winter and can't hit the courts, visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum. Or go straight to the source for suds at Newport’s own Coastal Extreme Brewing Company, which offers tours and — more important — tastings.
