A one-hour tour that was such a treat. The style of the house is timeless. The use of wood, windows, lighting and natural light is just amazing. Its a must architectural see.

this was a very interesting place to visit. Nice and factual history. Recommend the tour. Probably more fitting for adults or teens, although some children might find it interesting. Great history.

Near Oregon Garden, we visited this great house (with few objections, except for a private function inside). Excellent example of this style. Incredible views from outside.

This is not one of FLW's more impressive creations. The home was moved to this property from its original location.

We loved touring this house. The tour lasts about 45 minutes to an hour (which is significant since the house is pretty small), but our tour guide was so passionate and knowledgeable we all got caught up in her enthusiasm. Not great for kids, which...More

Enjoyed this excellent tour of a FLW home designed for a middle class family towards the end of his life. You are advised to make a reservation in advance; on a rainy Sunday we had no problem getting same day tickets, but tours do sell...More
