We stayed here on a fall road trip for a couple of nights. This is a truly unique experience, much better than a motel, and more private than a B&B. The cottage is an architect-designed marvel, a must for FLW fans. Our hosts were gracious...More

We spent two nights over Labor Day weekend and were truly impressed with the authenticity of the cottage. It is all wood, stone and fabulous angles. A great get-away in a small town for people interested in Frank Lloyd Wright's style and architecture in general....More

The cottage is not air conditioned but is wide open in the summer time with fully operational windows on all sides. The guest cottage is set in the middle of a landscaped block with huge overhangs and stone thermal mass to moderate temperature swings day to night. for about four months in the winter the windows do not operate because the windows are locked behind the screens. The locks are necessary in the winter to keep the copper seals engaged to eliminate the drafts. The windows are custom, field built, irregular shaped cypress framed casement windows with brass screens that can't be upgraded to modern convenience without destroying the original intent.
