When enjoying the estate please remain 6 feet away from other visitors, bring your own water, pack out any garbage and note there are no open public restrooms available at this time.
Whether it’s lush garden views and the sound of Gull Lake waves hitting the shore or the snow-swept hills, twinkling lights, and lavish holiday decorations adorning each room, Kellogg Manor is truly a visitor’s destination any time of the year. We welcome visitors for tours all year-round, and no matter what the season, our visitors are truly in for a treat.
Open Monday-Friday 9-4, closed for lunch from 1-1:30. We are closed weekends (with exception to our annual Holiday Market event.). Please contact us in advance as many dates the Manor is privately rented and may not be available for viewing. The Manor is closed the first two weeks of November in preparation for the holidays.
Motor Coach Group Tours
Kellogg Manor offers a docent-led tour for your group to see, feel, and hear the rich history of the home. For $5 per person, your group will hear about life as it was for W.K. Kellogg during his time in the Manor. Our tour is accessible to all. To get your tour group excited for what is to come during your visit, we can send you the video “W.K. Kellogg An All American Entrepreneur” to view before your visit.
In nice weather, be sure to save time to wander the gorgeous natural gardens and take in the view from the shoreline of beautiful Gull Lake. Guided tours are typically 1.5 hours, and self-guided experiences are at your own pace.
Parking is convenient and complimentary for both motor coaches and automobiles.
