We were thrilled with the venue, but especially with Mallory and her team at the Eisenhower House. Not only was the location within our budget (hard to find in Newport), but they were also able to recommend exceptional vendors for the rest of our needs that day. Mallory was available to meet several times leading up to the event to go over all the details of the day. She was always very helpful, responsive and caring. The ceremony was planned outdoors, but just moments before, it began to rain and the Eisenhower staff (as well as the truly remarkable catering staff) quickly arranged to move everything under the dinner tent. We even hosted another family event there because we were so happy with this venue. We would highly recommend!

Eisenhower house is an absolutely beautiful location to have your wedding. We had our reception here, having our ceremony off site. The grounds are gorgeous and to have the ability to have the beautiful Eisenhower House in addition to ocean. We looked at many sites in Newport but most were out of our price range. We were able to create our perfect day by bringing some great vendors to the Eisenhower house and have the day we wanted without the extra large price tag of much of the rest of Newport. As an added perk we enjoyed the bridal suite and grooms suite to store our extra things and have a little bit of privacy when needing to use the rest room.

We loved the Eisenhower House from the first moment we saw it. It is a beautiful location and very private (only one wedding a day, so you don't need to worry about being rushed or having other people milling through). The only issue is that you need to organize a lot of things yourself, such as a tent and a caterer. However, with Jen Brinton as our planner this was not a problem at all and it allowed us to make the wedding much more personal. The Eisenhower House also has a clambake pit, which we used for an amazing outdoor clambake.
