Our History

Hospitality cannot be learned… it comes from the heart. For Cathy Kilday, the founder and owner of Stanley House Mansion, it is even innate because Cathy's ancestors came from Italy, which is well-known for its hospitality. Cathy's grandparents operated a popular street cafe in Naples and showed their grandson early on what needs to be done to make sure your guests are comfortable.


After having completed his training in the hotel industry and his move to the US, Cathy worked for many years in the catering industry before opening his own company: Stanley House Mansion. Today, Stanley House Mansion has 44 employees and organizes 300 events per year for families and companies.
