We held a training workshop for clients here. The setting was beautiful. Air conditioning was lacking, though, and the catering was not up to our usual standards.

Spectacular mansion. Informative tour was long enough but not too long to bore the teenager. You can now take non-flash photography. Nice small gift shop. Great place to take out of town guests.

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!!

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.
