The Palmer House is a multilevel brick and cypress late period Frank Lloyd Wright house, the plan and design of which is based on the equilateral triangle. The house is sheltered by a long broad hipped roof with deep overhangs. The cantilever extending over the terrace is the most dramatic feature of the house. The open interior is fitted with Wright-designed furniture and built-in cabinetry. The Palmer house exemplifies Wright's open, American organic architecture in which all parts are related to the whole and are linked to the environment in an adaptation of form to nature.
In addition to the main house, there is a tea house located on the 2 acres of woodland surrounding the home. The Tea House includes a small kitchen and a bathroom. The Tea House is not available as a separate rental and is not available during the winter months. The Tea House is included with the rental of the Palmer House.
During your stay, please enjoy complementary tea and coffee, high thread count sheets, feather and non-feather pillows and organic shampoo and conditioner. We are committed to greening the earth and only use organic cleaning products, hand soaps, dish detergent, and laundry soap. Please be advised that there is no air-conditioning. Because the floors are concrete, the roof blocks direct sun, and the house is surrounded by very large trees, the house stays relatively cool.
