Fodor's Review

Located 10 miles north of Sautatuck, the Felt Mansion is a peek into how the wealthy lived along the Midwest's Riviera in the 1920s and '30s. The 12,000-square-foot home was built between 1925 and 1928 on Shore Acres Farm as the Felt family's summer home. It remained in the family until 1949. After that, the home became a seminary for young men and was later used by the State of Michigan for office space. Massive restoration efforts have returned the Georgian mansion and elaborate gardens to their full glory, as they were during the late 1920s. In addition to self-guided tours, guided tours are available upon request.
