A Historic time capsule of Epic proportion.
Of all Frank Lloyd Wrights designs; the Guggenheim, Falling Water, this house is probably one of his most eclectic. It takes some getting used to its unique features, due to to it being based on an equilateral triangle, the shapes of the beds, the pull drawers, the cupboards, the bathrooms, the kitchen. It is something you will never encounter before, or again.
The former owners, and fortunately for the World, the new owners have kept this house Exactly, or as close to, as FLW designed it, with very little modern changes. The house was clean, comfortable and warmer than expected due to its decor even though it was 25 degrees outside.
Do your research on this house before staying, as it will give you a greater appreciation of it's historical significance. This is a house that brings in the Outside world of the the Garden and surrounding landscape, the serenity of Nature, the peace and quiet of a Zen-like atmosphere.
If you are a fan of FLWs Architecture, then this house is Most certainly a place to stay and take the time to savor.
P.S. Arbor Brewing Company, 2 Big Thumbs Up! Just off Main Street in Downtown Ann Arbor, parking garage directly across the street.
