I read about the Felt Mansion and Estate on their webpage and was immediately intrigued by the history and preservation efforts. We took advantage of a beautiful summer day to explore the mansion and estate and then took the trail through the forest to the beach and Lake Michigan. The mansion and grounds are really beautiful. Elegant, but casually so.... More

My father took me along to the auction sale when the Felt family auctioned the contents of this beautiful mansion. Everything was way beyond belief for a kid who's dad was a plumber. Dad bought a lot of copper pipe, fittings and stuff like that. He also bought a slab of green Carcarra marble which he had cut to put... More

We attended a wedding reception here and were able to tour the building. Beautiful historic mansion. The staff did a wonderful job catering the event. A very nice place to stay and/or hold an event.

Such a beautiful place to hold events!!! A sight that truly takes your breath away. Hidden from me for years!! Off the routine trails. Just a turn off the main road into a hidden fantasy!!! The Drum Circle group meets there and it is fun to participate in. Many places to explore and behold the beauty in. A magnificent place... More

It was raining today and the Felt Mansion was a nice place to spend an hour or so. Felt made his money by inventing a machine that adds, subtracts, multiplies and divides. He also planted lots of trees and other plants to keep the sand from shifting on his estate. Interesting visit.

If you like history from the early 1900's, this place is for you. Built in 1926 by Dorr E. Felt, this is a beautiful place to spend a few hours. The mansion is breathtaking. Restoration of the mansion began in 2001. Before that, the mansion was used as a seminary, a prison, and used by the state police. The grounds... More

Last year a group of ladie's from our church went to the Mansion to see how beautiful they have it decorated for the Christmas season. It was so wonderful we are going again this year. Every room has a tree adorned with such amazing ornament's. They also have a guide that tell's the story of all this building has been... More

my wedding reception (in may of 2010... sorry for the late review) was at the felt mansion. the grounds are beautiful, the ballroom was perfect. the mansion has taken on a handful of different identities throughout its lifespan- a convent, a state police headquarters and the supposed home of the 'melonheads', a southwest michigan legend. to see it today, restored...

A ton of work went into restoring this treasure set in Saugatuck State Park. They truly kept the integrity of the home. Wonderful place to just look around and go back in time a bit. They do have facilities to host parties and weddings there. And you are close to the Saugatuck Dunes Park which offers a wide range of... More

I didn't have any expectations when going here however I heard haunted house so I was excited. 30 bucks a person to walk around an old large house that supposedly has " ghosts or haunted creatures". They let so many people in at once with flashlights that you might as well have the lights on. We went with a large... More
