We had a great game of golf at the golf course which was kept up perfect. We finished the round off with a great dinner at the new restaurant.

The Meadow Brooke Hall Mansion is a gorgeous piece of history. I highly recommend an educational tour. Looking for a beautiful outdoor wedding destination in Michigan and a mansion for pre-celebration drinks/mingling? This is your destination! The mansion, built in the 1920's, is also great for business networking and community programs. I'm just in love with the grounds and you... More

This is a family friendly place to tour. Guides lead you through the house and (optionally) behind the scenes. The Tudor mansion and the surrounding grounds are well maintained the the tour guides are very informative. It's a National Museum - and historic in so many ways. This is a must do destination for individuals and family

I have toured the Dodge/Wilson mansion on at least five occasions. On a recent return to the area, I could not resist visiting once more. This wonderful home is preserved with all the furnishings and finery of the family intact. Attention to details reflects preferences and interests of the original occupants executed by skilled artisans. Although elegant, Meadowbrook Hall presents... More

Beautiful, well tended and colorful gardens surround this huge stone Tudor mansion. We walked around the extensive grounds for around 1/2 hour before the house opened for the day's tours. We took the basic house tour and saw quite a few rooms - incredible carved woodwork and intricate plaster ceilings. It's fully furnished and looks as if a family still... More

Being an OU alum - I had to check out the tours offered here. Beautiful, and large home. I just don't think it's taken care of well. If you are looking for an amazing estate, that is being well preserved - go to the Edsel Ford home!

Well worth a visit. The Holiday decorations and the structure of the mansion are amazing. Very impressive and historically kept.

We waited for a Groupon before taking a tour here. It was a fun outing, but I did not find it as interesting or as enjoyable as some of the other tours I've been on in the Detroit/Windsor area. For instance, we enjoyed the Ford Piquette museum, and the Hiram Walker tour (Windsor) more interesting. Perhaps it's better to visit... More
