Up to 300 guests

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.

    Ideal Venue- Best of Rhode Island

    Eisenhower House couldn't have suited our family's needs better! Mallory was an excellent guide and source of advice throughout the process. We were looking for a venue that showed the best that Rhode Island had to offer with plenty of room for customization and flexibility to account for our taste and changing pandemic-related travel conditions. Eisenhower House certainly fit the bill. Trish was an excellent day-of manager, keeping us on schedule and well organized.

    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!

    We were so lucky to have had our wedding at Eisenhower — not only is the venue stunning and allows for complete customization, Mallory was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very beginning. During what was a very challenging year with many changing restrictions, she made things as easy as possible and always made sure we knew all of our options so we could plan for different scenarios. She was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable and her strong connections with local vendors made me feel so confident that our wedding would be executed perfectly! We had the best day we could’ve imagined and owe so much of that to Mallory and her great recommendations and support along the way. Thank you for everything!

    Best day ever!

    We celebrated our daughter's wedding at the Eisenhower House and it was, simply, one of the best days of our lives. Mallory facilitated the process to perfection- not a stone was unturned and we didn't have to worry about a single thing! The setting is the BEST: beautiful historical setting with the colors of the ocean and the Newport Bridge in the background. The passing sailboats just completed the whole scene. I would highly recommend celebrating a highly coveted event at the Eisenhower House!
