  • The grounds are expansive and lovely. This review will be specifically for the Christmas lights winter display. They only let so many in each day so make sure you have your tickets a few weeks in...

  • Once again Stan Hywet puts holiday spirit out in droves. Everyone needs to get out there and enjoy this beautiful display these folks have put together so beautifully. This has become a tradition for many of us to kick off the Christmas season. Absolutely breathtaking!
  • For those that love history, those that don't, and those that want to find out, this is a wonderful place to visit. The manor house is full of beautiful details, and the grounds are spectacular. I especially enjoy their Deck the Hall season and the vintage baseball games in the summer. Go! You won't be disappointed.
