Interesting and well-maintained home - loved the little facts and tidbits. The tour was the perfect amount of time and loved the down-to-earth charm of the event. My daughter and I selected the perfect birthday gift for him. Would love to be notified if anything changes for the bed and breakfast! Thank you!

I enjoy architecture, and this Frank Lloyd Wright home was only a few minutes from my home. I enjoyed walking through this piece of history, but instead of focusing on Wright and his biography, this focused on the family and their interactions with FLW (the home is currently owned by a descendent of the original farmer that hired Wright). Much of the work on the house was done by the farmer and the host was very knowledgeable about the design and how the work was completed. We also learned about many of the flaws in Wright's design, and the work it took to restore the house to near original condition. If you are planning to attend, please be aware you will be asked to take your shoes off to walk through the concrete floored home.
