About Us

The Eisenhower House is a wedding venue located at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. Originally built in 1873, it was the Summer White House for President Eisenhower during his administration. Today, it remains an elegant property with hilltop views of Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor.

Facilities and Capacity

The Eisenhower House features beautifully designed rooms and an outdoor area that both offer a scenic backdrop for ceremonies and receptions. Couples are invited to celebrate their engagement party, wedding shower, and rehearsal dinner at the venue as well. To relax and prepare for their festivities, the happy couple is welcome to utilize the venue’s separate get-ready rooms. For an elegant reception, newlyweds and their loved ones can dine and dance in the mansion’s bright interior spaces. The building’s wrap-around porch allows guests to enjoy the open air and take in views of the nearby bay. For outdoor ceremonies, the lawn can be set up with chairs and floral arrangements, and a tent can be added to continue the celebration outside into the evening. Whether you’re enjoying a clambake during the summer or staying warm by the fireplaces in the winter, this venue sets the stage for long-lasting memories. With both indoor and outdoor spaces, the property can accommodate up to 1,000 people.

  • If you are looking for a stunning and well maintained property, gorgeous views of the Newport Harbor, and something a little different, Eisenhower House is for you! I could not be happier that my husband and I chose to have our special day here. It was absolutely perfect in every way. It's historic, "New England" and elegant in a more understated way. You can dress it up and have a fancy soiree or keep it peachy casual, great for both! Mallory and her team were beyond helpful in the decision making process, through all stages of planning and day of. I cannot express this enough. Great team all around!
