I'm of the opinion that a vacation shouldn't just be a getaway. It should be an experience — the kind of thing you bring up with your friends years later, like, "did I tell you about that time I swam with sting rays in Fiji?" I've got a list in my head of places I want to go and things I want to do - I'm sure everyone does. Now add to that list: spend the night in a Frank Lloyd Wright house. Until today I did not realize this was possible, without spending millions of dollars. So imagine my surprise when, while researching Wright's Usonian homes, I found a link to a vacation rental for the FLW-designed Bernard Schwartz house, in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. For $375 a night (or $325 on weekdays), you, too, can experience Wright's architecture the way it was intended to be experienced - by living in it.
It's a bit steep, but hey — it's not every day you have the run of a modern architectural masterpiece. What do you think — is it worth it?
Other Wright rentals:
The Seth Peterson Cottage in Mirror Lake, Wisconsin. (Thanks Jodi!)
The Palmer House (another Usonian!) in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
