A National Historic Landmark, Marble House is located at 596 Bellevue Ave., Newport, Rhode Island. Open daily and decorated for the holidays until January 4, 2009, this summer beach cottage is a favorite of Beach House Finds. The Newport Beach house was built between 1888 and 1892 for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt, as a summer house, or "cottage", as Newporters called them. Marble House was a social and architectural landmark in Newport's legendary resort of opulent stone palaces. The cost of the house was reported to be $11 million, of which $7 million was spent on 500,000 cubic feet of marble. Upon its completion, Mr. Vanderbilt gave the house to his wife, Alva Vanderbilt a leading hostess in Newport society as a 39th birthday present.
On December 27, 2008 you can spend the Holiday Evening at The Breakers with a leisurely self-guided evening tour through the historical landmark as you enjoy live holiday music and holiday sweets, eggnog and cider.
Tickets are $25.00 for Adults and can be purchased online from
The Preservation Society of Newport County or at the Breakers.

Christmas At The Beach Is Always Nautical
Christmas Eve is upon us and living on the beach is always a beautiful way to spend the Holiday. A Beach House sets the tone for a nautical Christmas theme. Being close to water is always a mystical seas side delight. A simple theme of Starfish was our decorating table top focus for our beach house this Holiday. Beach House Finds, staff found this tropical beach Christmas theme to be a simple inexpensive way of setting the table for the Holidays.
Pine cones collected in the nearby woods, Starfish, evergreens picked from the back yard, glass jars, white pearled Christmas ball ornaments are mixed in with the holiday nautical beach table theme. This is simply arranged and placed on a white table cloth. For the Beach House Christmas tree, pointsettia's and starfish decorate a beautiful Beach House Christmas tree.
