  • Definitely coming back here to view the rest of the grounds. We took the house tour on a beautiful August day. It was evident that the docents have a passion for Taliesin and all things Frank. This home/work of art must be experienced first hand, and the tour is well worth the price of admission. It is truly hard to tell where nature ends and man begins here. I would like to visit Taliesin in each of the seasons to see how it changes. The gift shop is well stocked with an assortment of goods priced from reasonably modest to the higher end for recreations of Frank Lloyd Wright pieces - truly something for everyone. And if you’re looking for a Frank book, they most likely have it.
  • It was wonderful to finally visit the home and workplace of the American artistic icon, Frank Lloyd Wright. For decades this beautiful country estate was the summer location of the Design School Mr. Wright ran as well as his personal home. We took the 2 hour tour which was well paced and run by a charming docent who seemed to sort of be in love with Mr. Wright.. Located along the wild banks of the Wisconsin river in the heart of the unique "Driftless Area" of Wisconsin, The house exemplifies the idea that a building should emerge from the landscape. Filled with amazing sight lines, angles and a million little touches which show what careful attention to function dictates. Everything was beautifully hand crafted and shows the effects of the years. The day I visited, many local volunteer gardeners were working through a rain shower spreading compost on the lovely gardens, and in other ways seeing to the extensive maintenance the estate requires. I loved the tour and the chance to walk through the rooms where so much inspired creativity was unleashed and to sit in the original chairs was sort of spooky cool. We ate extra nice lunch afterward at a nearby restaurant designed by Mr. Wright overlooking a bend in the Wisconsin river. Our tour was surely worth the cost. Frank Lloyd Wright was a world famous artistic original. Visiting the setting of his upbringing and seeing the environment he built over 5-6 decades was unique and immersive delight.
