Mrs. Fleming and her staff were very professional and in character as we were taken behind the scenes into the life of a servant at Meadowbrook Hall. I love learning about local history. Oh, and the scones and tea at the end of the tour were wonderful. I recommend this tour for everyone.

We toured Meadow Brook Hall for a Girl Scout event. It was awesome! The girls are 5-6 years old and they loved learning and touring. At the end we had a tea party and dressed up in play outfits and hats. It was awesome!!

Both the Christmas Walk and the guided tour of this mansion are worth finding time to do. Every room is unique and filled with either original or period furnishings. Every fireplace is different and there are so many features from various places in Europe. The gardens are also magnificent in the spring and summer. There is the added bonus of... More

This is a must see attraction for anyone interested in history, and automotive royalty. The fortune from the Dodge family built this mansion. One of the last surviving manors from the 1920s. This home was spared the wrecking ball due to Matilda Dodge Wilson's foresight in preserving her beautiful home for all to see. Step back in time, and be... More

Wonderful and well kept, almost as if a step back in time. Much is available to see and I loved it much better than the Biltmore in fact! A must see

We had an excellent tour guide. The house was beautiful as were the surrounding grounds. Would love to go back for the "behind the scenes" tour where rooms are revealed that are "off limits" to the regular tour.

Haven't been on a Holiday Tour of Meadow Brook in over 20 years, but decided to go out with a friend. What a lovely experience. The first two floors of the estate are completely decorated and open for a "self-guided" walking tour. In each major space, knowledgeable docents provided much detail about the purpose of the room and of architecture.... More

A friend and I toured during the Holiday Walk and what a gorgeous place! So beautifully appointed during the Christmas season. Loved the nanny's bedroom and bathroom with all the nursery rhyme tiles as well as the solarium and the children's playhouse and cottage. The place is massive with a whispering room, games room and a beautiful organ playing Christmas... More
