Stetson Mansion is a spectacular Victorian mansion built for famed hat maker and philanthropist John B Stetson in 1886. Situated right between Orlando and Daytona in DeLand makes it convenient for all visiting the central Florida area. This is Florida's first luxury estate and houses some of the most beautiful and intricate parquet floors in the world. The mansion is one of the first homes in the world to be designed and built with Edison electricity. The owners have painstakingly renovated every square inch of the 10,000 sq foot masterpiece while incorporating today's modern conveniences. All this was done without compromising the architectural or historical integrity. Every room on every one of the three floors is magnificently decorated and every room features a different style floor and window design There is Reservations are required $20-$30 per person and children are $15. Payment is cash at the door and we do charge applicable sales tax. See you at the Mansion!!

This beautiful restored house will continue to awe you throughout the entire tour. My husband, who gets bored very easily was entertained with facts and history and by the exquisite architecture found in this home. What a true gem.

Our tour guide, Joanne, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The mansion has been lovingly restored to maintain its grandeur but discretely modernised to allow it to be a comfortable home. The parquetry floors are stunning!
