  • I love visiting this place!! The grounds and mansion are well maintained and a joy to share with the family. The summer is a beautiful time to walk the grounds and see the gardens. Winter is a great time to walk the property, green house and mansion to see all of the spectacular Christmas lights and decorations inside and outside. The murder mystery is a fun outing while touring the mansion, the actors are funny and they put on a good show. Again, I absolutely enjoy visiting this place and all the events they have to offer. Great history at Stan Hewitt!
  • This is one of the most beautiful places in Ohio. I am lucky to be a member here and to get to experience it in every season. The grounds are always gorgeous any time of year, but fall is my favorite. Their Christmas events are absolutely wonderful and I have made it a tradition with my family. It is always a joy to see this immaculately preserved home and attend all their events.
