Toured, self guided, this beautiful mansion near Christmas. The craftsmanship here is top notch. Every room a wonder. A decorated Cheistmas tree in almost every room. Staff was friendly and informed. Be amazed this 80,000 sq. ft mansion was built in three years. Don't miss the life size doll house on the grounds. $20 per person for tour.

It's a wonderful place. Every time I go there I think: it's a best season to visit. In summer lot of flowers, lot of colors in fall and blossom trees in spring. During Christmas house and park are decorated like a wonderland. Great place to visit

We had been wanting to visit this home after talking to a woman about how impressive it is. Pros: The home is impressive. It was built by Matilda Dodge (third wife of John Dodge) and her husband, Alfred Wilson. The home was modeled after a 16th Century English Tudor mansion. There are a number of original furnishings, art and personal items belonging to the family in the home. You get to see a number of rooms on the first level, the ballroom on the lower level and the bedrooms on the second level. Cons: Our docent, Tim, spoke way too fast. I had a hard time catching everything he said and felt a little rushed from room to room with a group of about 15-20 people. They use the home for private, catered functions and as a result, there were tables in a number of rooms left over from last night’s event and/or in preparation for that evening’s event. This kind of took away from the splendor of the furnishings to see banquet tables, chinzy tablecloths and chairs and buffet tables and chafing dishes all over the place. There isn’t a lot of signage from the parking area telling you where to go for tickets and we kind of wandered around trying to figure out where to go. The house is interesting enough, but not the caliber of the Edsel Ford mansion in any way.

We did the behind the scenes tour which wound up largely to be, "Behind this closed door..." The house and grounds are fabulous and maybe the other tours are too but this one was disappointing.
