For a glimpse into the opulent 19th-century lifestyle of one of Florida’s wealthiest residents, head intoStetson Mansion, one of Florida's most historic houses and its only Gilded Age mansion. Named “Florida’s Most Popular Tourist Attraction” by TripAdvisor, the private 1886 Victorian estate of J.B. Stetson—the inventor of cowboy hats—offers all-access tours of its styled rooms, decorated hallways, and numerous nooks. Notice the elaborate parquet floors and antique windows.

I was so happy that I made it for this tour. Kim was a delightful guide and I learned so much about the history of this beautiful mansion.

The Proprietor spent 3 months decorating this home in a Christmas theme. Each room was intricately decorated, and we participated in a delightful guided tour. The Proprietor himself even came to visit and gave us some heartwarming background stories about the mansion and some of the decorations. Southern Hospitality at its best--when I had to take a break from walking and standing, the other Proprietor brought me a picture book of the mansion rooms, and I was able to scan the QR code to get my very own audio tour while sitting comfortably on the beautiful front porch. :) Truly a stunning home!
Visiting the Stetson is always a treat, but especially at Christmas to see JT's talent on display! Beautiful decor highlights the historic home & is a joy. We took the guided tour & were treated to a heartfelt story from JT in the dining room about what Christmas meant to him & his family. Our guide for the rest of the home was knowledgeable & entertaining. Photos aren't allowed inside, but trust me when I say you won't be disappointed!! It's a sight to experience 🎄
