First, you need to reserve in advance for a visit. Second, it's a must see. Both guides were knowledgeable and showed their passion for this house. They explained everything in detail and made the 90 minutes visit pass so fast by entertaining you with questions. From outside, this house seems small, but the living room gives it a sence of...

It's hard to believe the Zimmerman house is on only a 3/4 acre lot. The style of the house and its diagonal placement on the lot make the site seem much more spacious. The living room and bedrooms give one the feeling of being outdoors. The ceilings are a gorgeous cypress. The living room coffee table is in two detachable... More

We toured the Zimmerman house at the end of October 2015. We left the Currier and Ives Museum with our tour guide Pam for the short drive to the home. Once we arrived at the house we were told various aspects regarding the outside of the home and them proceeded inside. Pam explained many of the concepts of the home... More

This house is another one of his masterpieces. This house is smaller than the rest but is lacking no charm. It is quaint and cozy with the same window work and angles he is know for.

I have visited at least 5 FLW tours and this is the best curated and guided experience. Both of the guides that I had the pleasure of touring with were knowledgeable and able to cater to a wide variety of guests. I studied architecture so I am perhaps a bit more critical - but was very impressed. The property is... More

This small house packs a lot of punch! Absolutely loved our tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared additional information about other Frank Lloyd Wright homes which we will make a point of visiting.

Outside was a bit boring to me, but the inside was beautiful. Visit if you are into art or architecture, or like learning about house design. It's hard to describe the inside... It is just unique. Everything flows together in an open design, and it is decorated very much how it was when the museum acquired the house. The inside... More

We love Frank Lloyd Wrights work, especially the Usonian houses, and this is a wonderful example beautifully curated with all the furnishings and decorative items of the owners, who had the house designed for them by Wright and lived there for 38 years. The tour of the house was wonderful and informative, but there was so much to admire and... More

A quite amazing place. This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house available to the public in New England. Unique. You have to buy your tickets in advance through the Currier Museum where you board the tour bus. Very knowledgeable docent. The building is beautifully preserved. The grounds are lovely. Worth the trip. Has inspired me to visit other FLW... More

It was good and clean. The bathroom is shared for three rooms within a suit. Free Wi-Fi, no breakfast. Close to Hanover downtown.
