The estate is decorated with one million holiday lights, and the Manor House decorations are inspired by the theme of Gracious Gatherings. The look is a  traditional Christmas —with some whimsy in the mix — for all to enjoy. Traditional: The Music Room will be decorated in red, green and gold, and highlight Gertrude Seiberling’s musical talents. In a departure from previous years, the room will stay fully furnished and holiday dresses from Gertrude and other family members will be part of the display. Whimsical: The West Porch will be filled with animals in tuxes, gnomes taking a bubble bath and a woodland Santa in a forest with a flocked tree. Thirty trees in 19 spaces in the Manor House will be decorated! 

Outside, the gardens and grounds will be decorated once again with one million holiday lights, the perfect setting for a brisk winter stroll. Dazzle in the Great Garden features three holiday songs choreographed to the display of lights.

Molly’s Shop is brimming with unique holiday gift items for everyone on your list. The air in the Courtyard is scented with the irresistible smell of freshly baked gingerbread wafting from the Gingerbread Hut. A hot cookie and cocoa or beer, wine or a pretzel from the Salty Reindeer are a great way to end a perfect evening at Stan Hywet’s Deck the Hall.

Dress for the weather and plan on a 60-minute outdoor walking experience.
