“Serendipity!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

As I walked in downtown Whitefish, just where the "sidewalk ends" and quiet business begins, I saw a building that caught my eye. There was something iconic, subtle, but distinctive in its design. Then I saw the sign near the street: "Frank Lloyd Wright Building." Aha! That was it. It had many of the hallmarks I'd come to look for in such architecture. I later took my husband there and enjoyed it all over again. I do not know the story of how it came to be there, but it adds distinctiveness to an already distinctive tourist town that is not a tourist TRAP.

“A Tourist Attraction No Longer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This was an oddity in it's day but now it is perhaps one of the least interesting buildings that Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed, and we have visited many. Don't plan a trip around seeing this architectural example. If you adore FLW, then by all means, if you are in Whitefish stop by and see it. It will not take long.

“Nothing to write home about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

This building is nothing to write home about. The flat roof is completely inappropriate for a snowy area and leaks like a sieve.

“Worth a look”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

If you happen to be in Whitefish, and are interested in architectural history (Frank Lloyd Wright in particular), definitely stop by this little office building. Appreciate that some info posted outside and some interesting pictures as well since there have been some changed to the building since it was built.
