about Cranbrook House and Gardens:
The Arts and Crafts-style Cranbrook House was built for Cranbrook founders George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth. The house's designer, Albert Kahn, is the same fella that designed the Belle Isle Conservatory, the New Center's General Motors Building, and the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House.
Visitors can take both guided and self-guided tours from May to October, but even if you don't take the house tour, the more than 40 acres of gardens themselves are worth the trip. There are formal gardens, an Oriental garden, a wildflower garden, an herb garden, as well as sculptures, fountains, streams, and a lake.
Self-guided garden tours (Adults $6; Seniors $5; Families $15) are available daily from May through September and on weekends in October.
