Joe Matteo was the original visionary behind the Stegmaier Mansions’ renovation and revival. Having purchased The Frederick Stegmaier Mansion in 2001, he restored it to its original opulence – opening one of Wilkes-Barre’s most notable event venues and Bed & Breakfast offerings. In 2014, he purchased & similarly restored the Mary Stegmaier Mansion to accommodate the numerous requests for a larger venue. Today, he oversees the operations & quality of experience at both facilities. Joe is a graduate of Wilkes University, and is a trained and internationally recognized concert pianist.
