Not an architecture buff but I appreciate Wright's work. This house was amazing. He thought of almost everything. My wife wants to visit every FLW house in America now.

I think our tour guide really made this exceptional. A retired architect, he was very knowledgeable and in no hurry to rush us through. He answered our questions and told us so much about the house. The house is interesting and the grounds are beautiful. I always wanted to see a FLW house and I was not disappointed. It was... More

This home was lovingly lived in and preserved, with original Wright furnishings. It's lovely. Gotta make reservations by calling ahead!

Please do not negatively review a listing because you did not do even the basic research required beforehand. How tacky.

The tour was nice and the docent was very knowledgeable about the house and previous owners. There is not much else to see on property and only takes about an hour. If you're like us and follow Frank Lloyd Wright it's worth checking off your list.

This home is definitely worth touring. Very unique inside and out as well as the furnishings. Not sure I could live it this type of home but it's very liveable. The home blends so well in it's surrounding area of trees and yard. It's amazing how well it has been taken care of all these years! Well worth seeing.....so Frank... More

I attended this tour prior to my book club which was reading "Loving Frank" (very interesting book, BTW, mostly about his mistress). I always thought of Frank Lloyd Wright houses as very large, even if a little minimalist. This house is quite modest in terms of size but has some very interesting components of Wright's style. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE... More

We drove out from downtown and were disappointed to find that we couldn't get in because we hadn't known we needed to arrange a tour beforehand. So disappointing...

Our family of four, including two teens who did now know anything about FLW, had a nice time at Ebsworth. The staff went out of their way to make sure we got to take a tour, since we showed up on a day when they were closed. CALL AND MAKE RESERVATIONS! You cannot just show up. The tours are small...

Interesting Usonian house. Many original furniture pieces and features. Nicely maintained. Small - but that was Usonian.
