Detailed  Tour Overview:

The Mansion is neither a Victorian or Stetson museum. It is a private residence. 

  The Mansion receives no tax dollars or grants to underwrite the admission price.

We celebrate history including the 150th anniversary of the Stetson Company this year!

Knowledgeable and friendly tour guides will lead visitors through the first and second floors of the recent magnificently embellished  and appointed rooms, hallways and niches of the mansion.  The Mansion is not filled  antiques or crammed with Stetson artifacts (they perished a long time ago), rather it is a blend of the ages.  Guides will share an intimate history of the Mansion, the Stetsons and the new owners who saved it. Guests will see the country's most beautiful and elaborate inlaid parquet floors and antique windows with over 10,000 panes of glass.  This is an all access tour and nothing is marked "private" so the tour includes the private owners quarters as well! Visitors will also view the original schoolhouse,  which has been  converted into a beautiful Zen guest house featuring the original soaring Polynesian ceiling. The Grand Tour includes the third floor where guests will see 4  decorated bedrooms and bathrooms, a  second living and dinning area,  and the  tower balcony in the tower. The  Group Introductory Tour does not include any of the bedrooms in the main house.

Guests will learn about famed hat maker John B Stetson and the many famous visitors that he hosted at the estate. You will hear about the extensive two year restoration and rebirth of this national historic treasure and about the two men whose passion and dreams enrolled hundreds of manufacturers and artists to make it all happen.

"Stetson by Night" tours will encompass all of the features the day tours include but visitors will also be treated to the complete illumination of the mansion, inside and out. This tour truly is a magical and romantic experience.These are offered during the holidays or by large group request.

{The Mansion's first and second floors and the guest house is beautifully decorated for the "Christmas Spectacular!"  Nov 15 - Jan 15. See the Channel 13 videos on our Christmas  page for a look at the previous years. This year will be totally different! Please go the Christmas Page for further Info.}
