Explore Cranbrook House & Gardens

Tour Cranbrook House, the former home of Cranbrook’s founders, George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth, and the oldest surviving manor in the region. At approximately 30,000 square feet, nearly every detail from the tiling, to the ornamental hand carved oak paneled walls and Tudor Rose ceilings, in the English-Tudor estate exemplifies George Booth’s devotion to the Arts and Crafts movement.

Visitors will journey through the first floor on their guided tour, learning about the history of the manor, its founders, and the movement and organizations they supported and founded, while viewing the Booth’s impressive library, dining room, living room, offices and other rooms complete with works by world-class artists!

Explore the 40-acres of Cranbrook Gardens that complement Cranbrook House, featuring stunning sight lines with formal and contemporary gardens, statues, fountains, pools and ponds! Guests enjoy spending hours discovering the changing design of The Sunken Garden, the peaceful beauty of the Japanese Garden, hidden garden follies and so much more!
