"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. Designer decorations from around the world will adorne the mansion's firat and second floors. Themes for 2018 will be announced later in the year. 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”.
