With Mother’s Day just around the corner, planning the perfect celebration has never been easier. What moms want most is quality time spent with their family, and there’s no better place to create unforgettable memories together than at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron, Ohio. This enchanting location is a favorite among moms and offers a magical setting filled with stunning gardens and an awe-inspiring manor tour.
As a mom, I have been taking my kids to Stan Hywet since they were toddlers, and it has become one of our most treasured places over the years.
Now that they’re teenagers, we still enjoy visiting at least a couple of times a year. It’s a fantastic location to slow down, connect with your family, and immerse yourself in the beauty around you.
On Mother’s Day, May 14th, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is offering all mothers a FREE self-guided tour of the Manor House and grounds. Accompanying guests pay regular admission prices – $19 for adults, $9 for youth (3-17), and free for children 2 & under. Admission includes a self-guided tour of the historic gardens, Gate Lodge, Playgarden, and the 65-room Manor House featuring Connections: Love & The Ties That Bind, an exhibit about the Seiberling family’s relationships.
If you have an older friend or elderly loved one who might otherwise spend Mother’s Day alone, consider bringing them along to share in this special experience. It’s a lovely way to show appreciation and celebrate the love that mothers and mother figures provide.
Don’t forget to check out Molly’s Shop for beautiful jewelry and other delightful gifts for mothers. You can also enjoy a tasty bite at Molly’s Café, which offers salads, sandwiches, beverages, and sweet treats.
