The story of Seth Peterson and his pursuit of the leonine Wright to design his cottage only added to the delight of what resulted. It is quintessentially FLLW in diminutive form, compact yet awe-inspiring, dramatic yet soft-spoken. We were there on a PERFECT October day...More

Perhaps this should be under lodging. The gate is closed when it is occupied and you can't see anything from the road. There is a tour once a month on a Sunday. We were there on Tuesday. The phone number listed is disconnected. Visit the...More
