The House on the Rock is divided into three sections, you can visit just the house or have the ultimate experience and visit all three parts. Tour 1 is a visit to the house itself, Alex Jordan must have been really short or a really bad architect as most places in the house require vigilance as to not knock your head on the ceilings.more
Frank Lloyd Wright not only grew up in the Spring Green area, but later on built his home--Taliesin (A Welsh word), his studio and his school there. There are many tours that are offered of his work, check the website to see them. I did the full tour, saw everything over 4 hours. They take you to see the first building he designed, a small church...more
The local M&I bank building and it's former drive-thru annex that now serves as the Spring Green Visitors' Center were designed by former Spring Green resident Frank Lloyd Wright. It's a nice addition to the sightseeing of Taliesin and the House on the Rock tourist attractions.more
You'll have plenty to see and do.If you love the outdoors you can start with hiking, exploring. For those that love arts, depend on what form of art you love, there is the American Players Theater, - all summer long, then is the arts and craft shops where they have too many options for anyone; there is an art fair every July, see more on the...more
Since I grew up in Wisconsin everyone has always said "you have to go see the House on The Rock", so I did-Honestly this "attraction" didn't impress me much not for the price of admission. I am sure at some time this house was truly amazing-I've just seen better is all. Don't get me wrong The house is impressive and has cool features, but it is...more
This is a place definitely unlike any other. If you've ever been here you know what I'm talking about. This place is huge, and there's a lot to see so I would recommend about 3 hours for it (the whole place covers over 200 acres). You walk through the actual house itself which sits on a 60 ft long outcrop of rock, and through various other...more
This river is a great adventure. My father and I would go tubing (in tire inner tube tires) down this river in the 70's.This river is alive and demands respect. She changes her borders each spring. She is home to many large birds along with the migrating SandHill Cranes. Many turtles line her banks and sun bath on the fallen logs and if you are...more
When Alex Jordan discovered a 60 - foot sandstone chimney rock, he envisioned it to be the ideal location for a weekend retreat. However, after constructing the magnificent House on the rock, he found his retreat was drawing curious visitors in drovers, It soon became apparent that the house was more than a simple gateway - it was a place that...more

The general store is always a busy place to grab a large breakfast or a good lunch. If you're in town for the American Players Theater, you can run into the actors from the plays at the general store. Sit outside on the porch and enjoy the free wi-fi available or browse the store for food, drinks, clothing and collectibles or catch an occasional...more
Arthur's is definitely a gold mine for the owners - no question about it... The place is always packed! What I don't understand is: WHY? In the ten years we've lived in the area, we've gone there maybe 4 or 5 times and always walked out wondering where the attraction is. In fact, the last time we were there, four of us dropped $100.00 and I've...more
My one visit to The Bank was interesting. I can't complain too much about the food, but I do have an issue with the other reviewer's point that it was something like $11-20. Nowhere near (unless they meant for a glass of wine). I thought that, especially for a small restaurant in a very small town, it was extremely expensive! In fact, three of us...more
Little Norway village...its really not worth to visit and pay for it!! 'Village' is only few houses to see and nothing else! would either suggest Dutch Village in Michigan State - Holland city - much better and interesting...
But anyway - this is my opinion..
There are great biking trails and you can select it according to your desire; flat trails, or more hilly trails, you will be satisfied just biking and enjoying the scenic views!
Equipment: There are no close by places to rent bicycles, but there are good shops near by that will give you the right gear to make your trip a success!
