Exquisite and breathtaking experience of old world charm - a beautiful manor that has held so many memories to look back on, all starting with Hiram Walker. With the ways that the very talented interior designers and student designers decorated each room, each of the showpieces will blow your mind. So many elegant fireplaces in most of the rooms were...

Beautiful setting for a wedding day to remember always. The staff really go out of their way to make your wedding day perfect. So picturesque. Weddings that take place during the Christmas season are especially charming as the decorations are so heart warming.

Beautifully decorated for the holidays, by design students and professionals alike. Each room has it's own theme, keeping in tradition with the period of the home. Enjoy the tour and the architecture of this beautiful home.

Willistead Manor is truly a staple of Windsor with its rich history, and culture about it. But honestly it's looks haunted! The staff is great and at but again it's looks haunted! Would love to spend Halloween there. That would be awesome! Recommended for good Halloween fun.

We enjoy visiting Willistead once a year during the holiday season. They offer open houses during that time of year for a nominal fee. Each room in the manor is decorated in a different theme. There are many volunteers who go out of their way to maintain and preserve this historic gem in our city. Even my children enjoy the... More

I attended a banking function and Willistead Manor. It's a beautiful place with a storied history. I liked how the management lived directly around the manor and then supervisors around those houses etc. essentially the houses were "nicer" the closer you got to the manor.

The architecture of Willistead Manor is an excellent example of an English Manor house. Once of then nicest landmarks/historical houses in the Windsor area (I recommend visiting it when it's open to the public for free during Doors Open). If there is small gathering of people, it's a very nice location to rent out for it's banquet facilities.

I went with a group of middle school students from mexico, we had a great time, its a place full of history, the tour guides were very knowledgeable and had answers to all of our questions, it is a small place so it doesn't take long to visit, but if you are in Windsor it´s a place you shouldn't miss.

Absolutely loved this park - Stately Tudor type mansions surrounded by mature trees and lovingly cared for rose gardens. The landscape is formal british with beautiful flagstone pathways encircling the property.
