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 and worth every penny. I would definitely do it again. They only take tours a couple times a month, ( I think ) but if interested in that you can contact the park for more info. Highly recomend to take the time for a visit !

Tea at the Manor House is held on the first Friday of each month. In 2013, the last tea will be in September due to renovations at the Manor House. Love it; consider taking a friend, a daughter or granddaughter. The Teas as "theme" oriented this year so be prepared.

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!

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 was go to the end of the parking lot!

The former Stranahan estate has become a landmark destination in northwest Ohio. The property has been preserved in exquisite detail. Renamed Wildwood Manor, it is situated in the 600 acre Wildwood preserve. Attending the tour will inform you of the original use of this exquisite home, the decision on why there are so many bedrooms, why it was built with private business offices and a grand dining room.
It is a perfect place to schedule family events, Weddings and reunions. You must stop to see the house decorated during the Christmas season. And don't miss the exqusite gardens located immediately next tot he house.

This place is just stunning! It is a beautiful home to tour. I REALLY recommend visiting for their programs, teas, and most of all visit for their Christmas! This is a great place to visit if you or someone you know enjoys historical homes!

This has to be one of the most beautiful homes in Toledo. Every year I have gone for the Christmas display at the manor. Every room is decorated in a different theme. It is just so enchanting, imagine living there! I am looking forward to when the whole house is open, as the top floor has been closed to the public for years. I did hear in November of 2010 it will be open to the public.

The house is located within the Wildwood metropark.

There is no admission charge for the park or for the tour of the house. It is a beautiful house.

The park is very nice. With walking trails, playground, places to have a picnic, there is also a bike trail that runs along side the park.

This is the mansion of Stranahan (founder of Champion Spark Plug Co) where he lived with his family from 1930s through 1960s. The mansion and surrounding park were purchased later in 1970s by Toledo Metroparks turning it into Wildwood Metroparks. The house has been renovated and preserved to show its original condition when Stranahan family lived there.

There is no fee to visit the park or the mansion and there is ample parking available. They have all sort of programs at the Manor House throughout the year (most of those programs are free). The park is open everyday from sunrise to sunset, but the Manor House has varying hours (more info available at Toledo Metroparks website). I visit the park frequently with my daughter and take her to programs at the Manor House. There is a window on wildlife room nearby (across from the parking lot) where you can watch all sort of birds eat at birdfeeders and we always enjoy going there.

They have a special event during 2nd and 3rd weeks of December (Holiday at Manor House) and rooms of the mansion are decorated with different holiday themes.

Wildwood's Stranahan house shows a lifestyle most can only dream of. Homey and elegant at the same time. The grounds have paths that make you forget where you are and wish you wouldn't have to leave. It's history, it's fun and it's amazing!
