This is a must see in Pasadena. Although the house itself is outstanding, the docent lead tours give you a feeling for the life and times of the people who built/lived in these masterpieces. It is remarkable that it is still standing and in such well preserved condition. So many of these houses are gone (very costly and hard to... More

This National Historic Landmark, famous wooden house is an architecture gem. It is a century old and strong example of American arts and crafts style architecture. The length of roof consoles is very impressive. Also its garden is serene. As an Architect to see this masterpiece is a breathtaking experience.

Be taken back in history on a tour of the Gamble House. You may need reservations on weekends. Beautiful home built in an era when quality construction and detail was valued by builders. Docent lead tours take you through this gorgeous home whisking you back in time. Well worth the visit.

If you have any interest in bungalows and arts & crafts style furnishings, go visit the Gamble House. It's been beautifully maintained and provides a true introduction to the beauty of an era when wintering in Pasadena attracted the major MidWest families. Take a guided tour as the docents are quite well-informed. We marveled at the glass art and wood... More

The architect designed this home for the Gamble family of Proctor and Gamble fame. They were fresh air addicts and each bedroom has an extended veranda where they had their beds and slept out of doors except for inclement weather, I suppose. The design theme goes from the entry stained glass design, copied in the furniture pieces. A beautiful home.

Went here last year and it was really a great tour. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. If you like architecture at all, you will enjoy seeing this craftsman style house.

Extraordinary house, full of Arts and Crafts details. Lovely grounds, and great bookstore. The architects worked in style parallel to Frank Lloyd Wright.
