Heaven & Nature Sing

This year the Manor House is filled with Heaven & Nature Sing. Twenty-on rooms are decorated with inspiration from nature, or in heavenly fashion, festooned with harps, horns and angels. It's a springboard for extraordinary holiday decor.


Adding a big WOW to Deck the Hall is Dazzle, a 10-minute program that plays three times each hour in the Great Garden.This dramatic and sophisticated computerized Christmas light show is one of the largest in Ohio. The centerpiece of the display is a 25-foot Christmas tree, lit with a full spectrum of color, a layer of rope-lit ornaments and an overlay of sparkle lights. Apple trees in the garden, wrapped in lights add more dimension to the display.

And so much more:

-Santa lights the Courtyard Christmas tree each night at 5:30pm. 

-The Gingerbread Bakeshop in the Courtyard features freshly bake gingerbread cookies. 

-New! The Salty Reindeer in the Courtyard sells Bavarian pretzels, popcorn, beer, wine and and soft drinks. 

-The warm toasty fire in the Courtyard is the place to enjoy hot cocoa.

-Live music in the Manor House Music Room. provides great ambience as you tour Deck the Hall.

-New! Two family photo opportunities: at the antique sleigh just outside the Manor House front door and at the large poinsettia tree in the Corbin Conservatory.

-New! Garden under Glass in the Corbin Conservatory has a cool winter feel with blue and white lights, and white poinsettias.

-Molly's is fully stocked with fabulous items for all on your gift list.
