The Mansion was featured in the August 2010 issue of Victorian Homes magazine with an article focusing on Joe Matteo's creation of the intricate wallpapered ceilings throughout the Mansion.

The Stegmaier Mansion was also featured in a 15-page article in Victorian Homes in February 2010.

Franklin & Esther Schmidt, 20-year field editors for Victorian Homes commented, “We have photographed Victorian houses throughout the United States. The Stegmaier Mansion is among the most historically appropriate, creative and elegantly decorated houses that we have visited. Beyond that, as a bed and breakfast, the ambiance, service and hospitality are, hands down, the most gracious we have experienced.”
