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. Opt for a grand tour to see more rooms and the tower balcony. One of the more popular rooms, the Zen room—once a schoolhouse and now a cottage—features an original Polynesian ceiling. Tour times are limited and reservations required. Contact the owners in advance. Plan to visit Stetson Mansion during your DeLand vacation using our convenient DeLand trip planner.

The mansion was decorated for Christmas, and it was spectacular! We enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we did not take the guided tour there was a volunteer in every room to answer any...

The mansion is a hidden gem, and the hand done Christmas decorations are over the top! Just a beautiful place and we'll be back to see it again after the Christmas displays are done.

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 🎄
An amazing beautiful home with the most wonderful Christmas decorations anyone could imagine. It’s said that it takes 3 months to decorate the home and the passion and love shows. The only downside is that there is no photography allowed inside the home.
The oldest house in Florida, built pre - 1900. Beautiful architecture…that is made even better with their Christmas decor. This is one of the most beautifully decorated houses we have ever seen. They don’t allow photos..so you have to go and see for yourself.
Beautiful mansion, both the outside area and inside. Crazy amount of beautiful Christmas decorations in every room. Probably coming back in the spring to see the inside without all the decorations and to see the 3rd floor (off limit during our tour as the owner was staying there). Not cheap, around $30 per ticket.
