  • A lovely reminder of Detroit's golden age, and the extraordinary wealth of the auto magnates during the middle 20th Century. The estate and grounds are gorgeous, very well preserved and maintained, an...  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!

  • 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.
  • We did the behind the scenes tour. Great insight into the Ford family and their home. If you have a chance, do this, you won't be disappointed.
  • 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.
