We visit the Manor House every year for Christmas. They have it decorated so beautifully and it is always so much fun to walk through the house. It always gets us into the Christmas spirit. There is a s'mores roasting tent outside and a little area set up for crafts, too. This is definitely something you should experience!

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!

This was the Stranahans home back in the day. It is marvelous. I help there during the holidays when it is decorated for Christmas and it is spectacular. They also have tours with a guide.

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

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
