I remember touring Willistead Manor one Christmas maybe 25 or more years ago and I was delighted to be able to do it again this past December. In addition to the opportunity to experience the history and beauty of this lovely landmark, the seasonal tour offers a spectacle of lovely Christmas trees and festive holiday decor on display throughout the...

The Willistead Manor is worth seeing if you get the chance, especially at Christmas time when all of the rooms are decorated. A gorgeous place for a wedding.

Good menu and great service although my entree had a touch to much salt taste for "my" liking I truly enjoyed it and ingredients were seemed fresh and it was different than the normal fair. Only fear of my review is I "think" this is the right place that uses local ingredients--I will double check.

I took a tour of Willistead Manor, and it is amazing. The detail work that went into making that house. My fiancee and I even went to a Halloween party fund raiser that they had last year. If you get a chance to tour it, you should.

A very cozy, intimate and elegant gathering for a smaller wedding (100 guests). A wonderful time was had by all. Staff and hosts all take such pride in this treasure. Christmas tours are... More

Did I break a window or something? The burger claiming to be "WHAT THE BIG MAC SHOULD BE" wasn't even sniffing a Big Mac! I expected MUCH MORE from Walkerville.

Willistead Manor has been bequeathed to the city of Windsor and so is under the auspices of the city. The manor can be rented for weddings and other events. The grounds of the estate are parklike and you will see people walking their dogs and otherwise enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Situated in the middle of a large residential area of... More

I've lived in Windsor my whole life and have gone to highschool literally one block away. This is one of Windsor's best attractions if you are into history. This might be coupled with hiram walkers tour as well since they are linked. Just don't expect the time of your life.
