Our friends and family took a short walking tour through their gardens as the house was closed due to school in progress and some areas being remodeled. It grounds were lovely and inspirational.

The house was closed at the time of our visit. However, the gardens are stunning ... with sight lines featuring statues, an endless variety of plants, fountains, pools and ponds. You can spend time trying to figure out why and how does the Sunken Garden...More

Beautiful, serene, artfully designed gardens and greenhouse. As with the rest of the Cranbrook campus, the aesthetics are flawless. A perfect place to meditate and take in the aroma and beauty of the gardens.

We were directed here by my wife's cousin. We wandered around the grounds looking at things, all of which were closed as we were there on a day that they were closed. The grounds are beautiful and the house was very impressive.
