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

I went there with my girlfriend, her sister and her child and it was beyond beautiful. You are able to browse through wedding albums that have taken place there. A felt mansion they have a girls' room for weddings that they can get ready in that have make up there already. The rooms are beautiful. We were all in awe.... More

If you like history and Mansions -- this is a must see when you are in the area. It's a self tour and the cost is $10 which goes towards restoring the Mansion. I love the victorian decor of the early 1900's & amazed that Dorr Felt had a 25 room built on serveral hundred of acres for his wife... More

When you decide to tour a mansion, you want to see something amazing; at least I would. The estate is huge, but there is not a lot of information to go along with the tour. It is self guided and some of the rooms were working offices, so there was nothing old in them. The top floor is a ballroom... More

Great location for a wedding; amble rooms for the bride and groom parties; a chapel for the ceremony, ball room, room for a tent, and history for all the guests.

A great restored mansion with a true historically redo in mind. The outside water feature was terrific.
