My sister and I took the tour of the manor house. It was very interesting to hear the story of the Stranahan family (Champion Spark Plugs). Amazing house and lovely park.

If you are in the Toledo area around Christmas, do not miss the Manor House in all it's Christmas decor! They do a fabulous job decorating every room in the Manor House. Don't miss this!

This house is spectacular. I don't know if I was more impressed with the grounds or the house. I can't wait to go back for the extended tour which is offered in the winter. They offer teas there if you live close by.

Although you are welcome to wander through on your own, we found the guide informative and interesting. We found it a little confusing trying to figure out how to walk from the restrooms (in the former stables) to the Manor. It sounded as though we had to take the path through the woods, when all we really had to do... More

Have been to the Manor house several times and its always a pleasure. However,my wife and I found out that they actually do behind the scenes tours where you get to see every room in the entire house. It was about a 3 hour tour if I recall correctly and it seems to me it was about an $8.00 charge... More

I hadn't been to the Manor House for several years and it was a treat to go back. They are already dressed up for Christmas. It is elegant and reminds us of how formal Christmas used to be. If you have young children they might be better staying outside on the hiking trails or in one of the child friendly... More

This house is worth visiting any time of year, but particularly at Christmas time. :-) The only advantage in warm months is you can also walk through the lovely garden in bloom. Take yourself back to yesteryear, Meander from room to room among book lined walls, wood carvings like they don't make anymore, furniture and furnishings of such a quality... More

We truly love this place. We have been there twice now & from now on it is a yearly family Christmas tradition for us. Going to this mansion is truly like stepping back into history, we enjoy everything about it. So tastefully & beautifully decorated every Christmas by various groups/organizations in the Toledo Area, every year is a new treat... More
