This house is gorgeous. It is well worth taking the tour (there is a fee) and learning about the family and their home. In addition to guided tours they hold many events there. For Father's Day there is a classic car show. Around Christmas the house is fully decorated. It is worth checking to see what events they have coming... More

A fun and relaxing weekend trip. The gardens and grounds are beautiful. It is amazing that there was such wealth and grandeur in this home. Go see it, you won't regret it.

Stan Hywet is a replica of the great homes of England - like Downton Abby, Burlington House or Greystone. Built in the early part of the 1900's by the Siberling family who owned Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, they modeled it to be identical to the great manor homes of their beloved England. The gardens are extensive and delightful, the... More

Stan Hywett is a beautiful home that looks like it's been transported from Victorian England and delicately placed right into the heart of Akron, Ohio. The home is a sight for sore eyes, and the grounds are breathtaking. The tourguides are informative and never boring, and it's not hard to imagine you're in a Jane Austen novel or in the... More

This is our fourth time to visit. Always see and learn something new about the home and the Seiberling family. Our tour guide was very informative. Also very relaxing on the grounds and beautiful gardens.

We had never heard of this place, but friends of ours, native Ohioans, insisted we visit, and we are so pleased we listened to them. This property was the mansion and gardens belonging to the Seiberling family who founded the Goodyear Company. The home is amazing, just what you would expect from the rich and famous, and the gardens are... More

Travel back in time while touring the lavish lifestyle as you view this 64,000 square foot house and estate. Tour the house and grounds and have lunch too.

Like Biltmore in Ashville this beautiful huge home and gardens near Akron give a view into the lives of industrial pioneers. F.A. Seiberling founded Goodyear Rubber Company and created this castle. On our first visit we toured the house and thought we saw the gardens. Returning we found a Japanese and English garden to the rear of the home and... More
