A real treasure for Akron is the Seiberling Mansion Home with many, many antiques inside & gorgeous gardens outside. Plus a New learn & play area for kids of all ages to enjoy. Make it a point to see Stan Hywet whenever you are in Akron, Oh.

Stroll through the gardens and be sure to tour the interior. The guides have great info and will share special tidbits with you if you show some interest. In the summer they have hosted outdoor events and country markets. All worth the trip. I supplied some of the ornamental, concrete garden pieces when I was working so a trip to... More

Only took me 50 years but I can finally say I have been inside the mansion. I have visited the Gate Lodge several times and learned a lot of the history that had happened there but had never actually gone through the Manor House. Wow was I missing something. We visited during the Deck the Halls event. Each room was... More

This was our second vist to the hall while visiting our Children in Stow. To see it lit up in the winter was just beautiful. The 'Deck the Halls' event was worth every dollar. All credit to the staff involved, it must have taken weeks of planning and they should be congratulated. Our 4 yr old grandchild loved it. Will... More

I have been to Stan Hywet several times. I would highly recommend the Nooks and Crannies tour. They take you into places that most visitors do not see. The holiday tours bring back memories with many nostalgic toys and many decorations that were displayed years ago in downtown Akron in O'Neil's and Polsky's department store windows.

Very Interesting....crowded but nice. Amazing home they had, large, varied in style and room décor. a bit overwhelming with all to see and do on the grounds, but well worth the price.

Imagine a mansion filled with rooms celebrating Christmas. Imagine holiday music wafting through the air. Imagine colorful lights covering the surrounding grounds. This and so much more can be found at Stan Hywet Hall during the holiday season. The explosion of sights and sounds is almost overwhelming. Yet, the setting is perfect for getting one in the Christmas mood. You... More

I've been to Stan Hywet many times, and have always loved it. Last time, however, I was extremely disappointed when we visited it on a Saturday afternoon during the Deck the Halls event. They funnel the visitors into a small admissions pavilion to buy tickets. There were about 50 people in line, it was really crowded and smelled really bad.... More

Went to see the Deck the Halls Christmas decorations at Stan Hewitt. It is a beautiful house with really nice gardens. The decorations in the house were very nice. The walk around the grounds with all of the lights were the highlight. They have done a great job. Also enjoyed waiting for friends around the big fire near the coach... More
