This was the perfect wedding venue for us. I would have loved to have the reception inside but we had too many people and didn't want to split everyone up, but the tent ended up being lovely for our needs. Food was wonderful and the service was great for the most part. The one issue we did have in the... More

We have been loyal patron of MBH for over 20 years. We enjoy the Christmas Walk, with the hall decorated in period decor and knowledgable docents explaining the history and customs. We have had our high school kids' prom pictures taken in the gardens. We have supported their fundraising events. This hall is a true gem of culture, history, and... More

We attended a function at this marvelous mansion. What a great preservation of an old building that is so wonderful. The interior is so great. The gardens and outdoors are excellent examples of well attended horticulture.

Go there and at least walk the grounds and the garden when the weather is able. The tour of ins8ide is a bonus

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
