We arrived in Rhode Island where Mummy and Daddy decided on our FIRST DAY that they wanted to see a few of the “Newport Cottages” that really aren’t cottages at all! They are HUGE MANSIONS (that were summer homes) and they don’t allow doggies, which is odd because I KNOW they must have all had little doggies living in those “cottages” at one time or another… but whatever. We were left behind at OUR COTTAGE, “The Yorkie Express” while our parents toured three of the most popular. Here are a few facts so you can compare them:
Square Feet: 62, 482 on 5 floors
This is the largest “cottage” in Newport.
Rooms: 70… 30 are for the hired help
This was given to Alva Vanderbilt for her 39th birthday… that’s a pretty nice present!
It cost $11 million to build in 1892 and $7 million of it was for MARBLE!!!
This house has the largest ballroom of all the “cottages” measuring 40 x 80 feet
You can rent this place out for special events… like a dream wedding!!!
THE YORKIE EXPRESS
Square Feet: 200
This “cottage” can be moved to any location in the country making it the PERFECT second home!!! ??❤️??
