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.

So glad we were able to see this house. Unfortunately we made our first trek out to see this house on a Saturday (the only day of the week they aren't open). We came back the next day and are so glad we did. A tour had started shortly before we arrived, but they were so accommodating and allowed us... More

Very nice park to take the kids to and do some biking. Great trails and nicely laid out. Good place for a picnic and just a day of relaxation. Nice shady areas. Usually pretty crowded, but plenty of space to share with others!!!

Every year local service clubs vie to get a room in the mansion to decorate. It is available to tour for free for one week, usually the from the first weekend in December thru the second weekend. Don't miss this!
