Cranbrook House and Gardens



Cranbrook House and Gardens is located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.  The gardens cover 42 acres and feature an herb garden, rock garden, sunken garden, greenhouse, oriental garden, wildflower garden, meadow, bog, and numerous perennial gardens.  It's really a pretty place to visit!  The Cranbrook house is the oldest manor home in south eastern Michigan, and definitely worth touring if you have the time.

The gardens are open May 1 through Labor day, Monday -Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Sunday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Admission for adults is $10.00, and admission for children is $5.00.

  1. Reminds me of the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California. These old houses with their amazing architecture, landscape and scenery are positively phenomenal! And the history of some of them is truly amazing too!

  2. My brother-in-law's US house is in Bloomfield Hills! I might've gone by that park and never knew it was there.

  3. I love house garden combos. Probably best to visit when not under piles of snow.
