“First Trip.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Wasn't sure I would enjoy this because I like "old" as in Victorian Old architecture.....however this is way beyond what I expected....so much to learn here...and we were blessed with an amazing tour guide.....everyone should visit and enjoy!

“For the Grandchildren”

Great fun for the grandchildren. They love being able to play on all of the outdoor equipment and all of the indoor trains.

The only Frank Lloyd Wright home in Oregon is restored and a treat to see. Good tour.

“Out of the way, not worth it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We found The Gordon House out of the way and hard to find. The staff is very pretentious. I agree with the man who says walk around the outside. We were questioned walking into the house about our children's behavior who were in our arms and who we didn't allow to get down. My recommendation is to skip it.

“Walk around the Gordon House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Do not miss this house just because it is not opened. You can walk around outside and marvel at its design. They have 3 large information boards outside telling you the history of the house. New benches have been built under the oak trees which are a nice touch.
