““Layers of elegant, thoughtful detail made me smile and cry.
You can’t help having an emotional experience.” – Tripadvisor

Different designs every year

The Victorians started our modern Christmas traditions like gift giving and Christmas trees, so what’s better than seeing Christmas in one of the Victorian homes where it all started? The Stetson Mansion had one of the first trees ever illuminated with electric lights. That’s what you get when Thomas Edison is your bff !

The Stetson Mansion is a spectacular  Victorian “Gilded Age” residence built in 1886 with all its original rich architectural details. It is a home and not a museum of any kind.  Each year’s decorations are always different.  Designer decorations from around the world will adorne the mansion’s first and second floors. Room themes for 2018 will be Angels We Have Heard on High, Oh Little Town of Bethleham, Let There Be Peace on Earth (A Tribute to our Miltary,) We Three Kings, It came Upon A Midnight Clear, Pretty as a Peacock, The Magic of Christmas and A Stetson Christmas. Visitors will be guided through the first and second floors of the home by a knowledgeable tour guide providing lively commentary as holiday music from the baby grand player piano wafts in the background.  The owner/designer might stop in to say hello to your group.

These enchanting tours include the 3 main bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and the secret master closet. Guides share the details of the decorations and historic highlights of the mansion including the inspiring story of the current owners extensive restoration.  Just when you think you have seen it all you are then treated to a visit into the original schoolhouse which has since been converted to a Zen like cottage featuring a soaring 15 ft ceiling. The school house might offer a few gift ideas including  a picture book  featuring  Christmas designs by JT Thompson.
