My wife and I ' really lucked out '. Friends in Toledo invited us to join them at a limited, by-invitation-only, afternoon event in the Wildwood Manor House and gifted us with tickets to accompany them. We really enjoyed seeing the Manor House and were treated to a small but elegant buffet that was provided to accompany the music that... More

We went during the christmas holidays. The Manor house is fully decorated for Christmas but only open for about two weeks. It as many steps to climb so you must be able to climb the steps. It get you into the Christmas spirit

(July no tea) Each tea is themed and the rooms are works of art. Christmas at the Manor again showcases the rooms decorated with love and care for the enjoyment for... More

We visited during the Christmas season and saw the beautiful decorations. The home was once occupied by a wealthy Toledo area family, and is now part of the metropark system. In addition to the home you can tour the grounds that include boardwalks, a covered bridge, and lots of trails in the woods.

The manor and grounds is hard not to enjoy and love. The manor has just about everything that I would want from gun range to rooms with super views. I do love the stair case and it is best when decorated for the seasons. I've enjoyed just walking along the trails and watching the wild life there. At times, I... More

The manor house is simply gorgeous!! Many people get married there, or have family events there too. I enjoy just walking through it, and even outside around it. It is beautiful inside and out. It is decorated so elegantly throughout the year. During the Christmas season, it is beautifully decorated for the season, too. This is definitely worth the trip... More

It's not Biltmore in grandeur, but it is still a nice house to walk through and a number of the rooms are noteworthy. On top of that I found the family history very interesting and that added quite a bit to the tour. It's by no means a must see, but if you have the time while you are in... More

If you love nature, the outdoors and or history you'll LOVE a visit to Wildwood Metropark. The Manor house was once the home of one of the Stranahan brothers who founded Champion Sparkplug. The Metropark board has redecorated and refurnished the mansion, with some of the original furniture. It sits in the center of Wildwood Preserve Metropark and is open... More

A great treat for the entire family is to tour the house when decorated for Christmas. There is music in the living room and a huge train set in the basement. This year they even offered s'mores by the parking lot as well as wagon rides through the grounds.
