The Gamble House, Pasadena

4.7
Admire a mansion's-worth of woodwork at The Gamble House, an Arts and Crafts-style residence that today belongs in the National Register of Historic Places. Finished in 1908 by David Gamble of Proctor & Gamble fame, the home boasts extensive gardens, a fully wooden exterior, and a host of decks, awnings, and outdoor patios. Join a guided tour led by a docent to explore the house's ornate interior. As you wander the living spaces, marvel at the collection of decorative furnishings and array of spacious rooms. Keep in mind that you must sign up for the tour in order to access the building, so book ahead of time as spots are limited and fill up quickly.

  • An architectural treasure, well worth a visit. Craftsman design by period masters Green&Green. Very informative docents led our tour. Unfortunately disappointing that interior photography (even flash-less) was not allowed, though good books by professional photographers are available in the gift shop.
  • Great Scott! If you're a fan of architecture or Back to the Future it's a must see when in Southern California. Even if you aren't a fan of either, maybe it will spark your interest.
  • A well maintained example of a famous Greene and Greene house. The tour allows you get close to details and textures as well as furnishings many designed by the Greene brothers. Small gift shop with related arts and crafts items.
  • Docents do a good job with explaining the history and architecture. Enjoyed my visit.
  • Eaten there many times and never disappointed. Food is authentic and very good. Prices are low and service is excellent. Can get very crowded, but worth the wait.
