This was one of the best mansions we ever visited. We were with a bus group and had lunch there. Food and service was excellent. Then we had a chocolate tasting which was wonderful. We had a tour of the mansion and felt most welcomed. We were allowed to take pictures . We hope we can visit again.

We stayed overnight in the Amelia suite. Beautiful accommodations. We will stay again. The entire facility is gorgeous. The room was elegant. Close to downtown restaurants and entertainment. The owner is gracious and the staff extremely attentive.

We hosted a Rehearsal Dinner for our son's wedding and our guests couldn't say enough nice things about the experience. The service is exceptional and every course - appetizers, dinner and dessert - was a culinary delight. The star of the show is the mansion itself. Victorian, genteel and elegant with period pieces and details everywhere the eye can gaze. One could remain in any of the sitting rooms for hours to take in all the small details. No detail is overlooked. This is an extraordinary experience. The Mansion is also a bed and breakfast. My son and his bride stayed there on their wedding night and he said he felt like royalty!! (As an aside, when President Carter visited the area, this is where he chose to stay!) We were so proud to have been guests of The Frederick Stegmaier Mansion.

The host at the Stegmeier is very personable and gracious. He stocks a wide array of breakfast goodies in the rooms and allows guests to help themselves. The wrap around porch outside is great for evening sit downs and a chance to watch the crow\d , including numerous students from nearby Wilkes Cleege, walk by.while enjoying your favorite beverage. The house is full to the brim with wonderful antiques, old photos and paintings as well as bric-a-brac which the owner has collected over the years. Wilkes-Barre is a surprising weekend getaway, especially for those interested in history, culture and architecture.

There aren't words to describe the amazing atmosphere that the owner, Joe Matteo, has created in this spectacular mansion. I have been in many victorian house museums and victorian Bed and Breakfasts and this is top of the list. You feel the splendor of days gone by the moment you enter the massive front doors. Each room has been decorated and restored to reflect the opulence of victorian days in such exquisite detail. We stayed in Amelia's room and it was so magical that I thought I would never be able to go to sleep for the sheer excitement of being there, however, the bed was the most comfortable I had ever slept on and I slept like a baby. I felt like I was living a dream come true to be able to sleep in such a beautiful room and simply felt as though I had been swept away to Highclere Castle. We also had great fun exploring the town on our bicycles and the riverwalk was lovely. Although we had toured the mansion before, this was our first opportunity to spend the night and it was a night I will never forget!!
