A woman that stayed named Peggy left a review saying: What a fabulous experience and opportunity to live for a few days in a home designed by one of the all-time architectural greats, Frank Lloyd Wright. From the tour upon arrival to the beautiful surroundings inside and out everything was perfectly appointed and preserved and the tea house was a treasure! A definite must for FLW fans!
A man named Jim also left a very positive review saying: A perfect opportunity to see what it would be like to live in a FLW house. Beautiful house with all the original furniture.. it all has a slight patina to it so you feel comfortable staying there.. you are not in a museum, but the entire house is accessorized with period items and reading material that feel authentic. The layout of the plan is based on a triangle so some spaces are unique and tight.. mainly the bathrooms. It would be even better to stay in the warm months when you could enjoy the landscape and the Tea House!
