We have gone several times at Christmas time and enjoyed it every time. We have done the holiday dinner which has food served in each room and you get to spend several hours in the house. Worth the price

This is a hidden Gem. Must see if you are visiting Oakland University area. The Mansion is a Historic land Mark with luscious gardens and occasional jazz concerts in summer.

Yes, it's a chance to see how the extremely wealthy lived a few decades ago, but the house was built and decorated with such beautiful taste (and a sense of humor!... check out the wooden friezes in Wilson's office). The grounds are lovely, too.

Very stunning venue. Went for a Wedding Reception on a Saturday night. Only saw a small portion of the Hall, but what we saw was magnificent. The food and service was fantastic, and all the employees were terrific! Bravo.
