Just a big house to tour. No original insides to really get me excited. We went during the holidays and it was pretty decorated but the rooms architecturally were rather boring.

Came here due to finding a facebook page called Toledo Parent. Absolutely beautiful estate. They offer free s'mores and crafts, a free tour, and cheap mule-drawn carriage rides, and cheap hot chocolate. Every section/room had a different theme. Very friendly cstaff and well-maintained. Highly recommend!

Just a lovely park during autumn. The Manor House was beautiful with a formal garden. Several statues and paths to walk around. The gazebo is quaint.

It's just a quick stop to look around, very nice to see the history of the people who lived there, with cool old pictures.

Finished in 1938, the house is open for tours, free of charge. Inside the 32,000 square home, you find a few of the original items from the Stranahans' time, such as the crystal... More

Great metro park in the city. This park has it all from walking trails to play grounds. Take a stroll in the woods and be sure to see a lot of deer. Total enjoyment! Then visit the manor house where you are in for a treat. This is open to the public at no charge. Take a step back in... More

I've been coming to and touring the Wildwood Manor House since I was a child. My daughter and I have spend numerous Christmas' touring the decorated mansion, not to mention 100's of trips to walk the grounds around the Manor House and Wildwood Park. This is a beautiful display of preservation.

My first visit in almost 30 years. I'm so glad I didn't miss this great display again. Sure to become a yearly tradition for my family. Each room, including he bathroom, is decorated as a different theme for Christmas. To get the full effect, this is a must visit. I can not describe in words how amazing this house is.
