  • Fabulous home and grounds. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the estate and had a surprise visit on our tour by Edsel Ford II. Would recommend spending an afternoon there. We arrived late afternoon and d...  read more »
  • Fabulous house and grounds - a peek into how the "other side" lived in the day. Very interesting guided tour included. Not be be missed! Follow up with lunch at "Mikes on the water" for a perfect day! 
  • I had lived in Detroit in early 2000s and my family and I would pass this on our scenic drives away from the city. While visiting family in St. Louis,MI, I was able to get them to go check out Edsel &...  read more »
  • Great place to go if you want to see how the rich lived before all you had to do to get rich was release a sex tape of you blowing some marginal "celebrity". Edsel Ford knew how to live. Not to mention the grounds are keep to exceptional standards. Not a well known spot, but I recommend it to anyone in the area, great way to spend a day.
  • Beautiful Home, one of a kind!! Staff was very accommodating/friendly. Four Stars because of the lack of Automobiles designed by Edsel. If you are interested in Cars, this tour is not for you. Go to Fairlane, Henry's House. This is a Women's Tour!
  • Love the Beautiful grounds. Have a great time rain or shine, every year listening to the DSO and watching fireworks.
  • I think everyone needs to do this tour at least once. It's a great experience and opportunity to get a glance into life from a different time. And if you appreciate old architecture, you'll really enjoy this.
  • My family and I visited for the 2015 Christmas tour. The guided part of the tour lasted approximately one hour then we were free to walk the grounds and explore after that. Whether you're into history, art or architecture, there is plenty to see. Our guide appeared a bit rushed, but we were a "large" group of about 12 guests. The guide did a great job of keeping everyone engaged, even my 10 and 7 year old sons. All of us want to return in the spring when we can see the landscaping and walk the grounds further. Fans of Downton Abbey may find it interesting (or sad) to see where some of the wood paneling and fireplaces ended up after so many of the British estates were dismantled and sold off.
