The 40-acre Cranbrook Gardens offer spectacular views of formal and modern gardens, statues, fountains, swimming pools and ponds.
There are many ways to enjoy it, such as strolling the sunken garden, experiencing the silly hidden mountain gardens, and enjoying the tranquil beauty of a Japanese garden. Visit Cranbrook House, the oldest surviving manor in the area, located in the former homes of George Gou Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth, the founders of the Cranbrook Educational Community.
Visitors will take a tour of the approximately 30,000-square-foot villa on the ground floor to learn about the villa’s history, its founders, the migration and organization they supported and established, as well as the impressive studios and restaurant stands. You can see rooms decorated with works by world famous artists, such as living rooms and offices. Find out for yourself why the New York Times described Cranbrook as “one of the most charming and fascinating environments in America”.
Breathtaking landscapes, the sweet sound of water from the iconic fountain, the soothing scent of flowers in many beautiful gardens, a long history, exceptional craftsmanship and exceptional architecture.
