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.
The staff at the Eisenhower House strives to help reduce stress on your big day. To do so, they can handle the setup and cleanup of your event. Tables and chairs are provided and can be arranged according to your ideal layout. Planning services are also available for navigation at each step of your wedding journey. Whether the property is blanketed in snow or illuminated by sunbeams, the venue offers a charming, New England backdrop for your wedding.

The perfect venue
Ideal Venue- Best of Rhode Island
The bride/groom "getting ready" suites were ideal. The view could not have been beat (we were so lucky with weather!). We loved the ability to choose and customize our vendors while still being grounded in a well-maintained, historic, and beautiful setting.
This venue offered flexibility and professionalism with classic New England charm. We would absolutely recommend it!
A stunning venue!
