Beautiful grounds and building in the middle of a residential area. My brother had his wedding outdoors. Thankfully the weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding. The house has lots of wood, on the walls, floors, and decorations. The grounds were nicely manicured and a great backdrop for pictures.

It was like visiting a miniature Downton Abby! Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Art in the Park is a perfect time to visit the Manor at the same time.

Absolutely beautiful at any time of year for any event. I have been visiting Willistead since I was a child at Christmas with my mother and on numerous school trips. When we began planning a baby shower for my son and daughter-in-law it seemed the perfect venue. The staff are easy to work with. Very few decorations are necessary as... More

This is a must-see if you are in the area. Take a walk around the grounds (great when events are on), and definitely go inside to see all of the amazing woodwork. If a guided tour is available, take it! Otherwise, aim for a visit during the holidays when the rooms are decorated for Christmas. I've been to several events... More

Fantastic history behind this old manor. Beautiful neighbourhood surrounding it that is great for exploring (especially in the fall) and admiring the beautiful historic homes. A great area for dreaming and inspiring.

If this building could talk, oh the stories it could tell....of Hiram Walker , the rum runner days and more. Best times to visit are the Famous Art in the Park in June and the house tours at Christmas . Wonderful well tended gardens, great for weddings!!

Beautiful park for a stroll or a picnic.Nowhere near big enough for a bike ride. The Manor itself offers tours occasionally, but it is mostly closed to the public. Asphalt paths were installed last year, making walking around slightly easier. Unlike many neighborhood residents, I did not think that the asphalt paths would have much of an impact on aesthetics,... More

This is a must for people who love antiques and historic architecture. The building is a treasure, dating back to 1904.
