Oh, the beauty of Spring returning! After all we are ready for Spring, plan early and plan wisely!

It's time to celebrate Spring and the whole revival of nature; we've been enjoying the many birds' return and their morning singing, the yards are green and many of the trees show their buds.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

It's May, a celebratory month for so many reasons!

We have our own reason to celebrate - it's the month the motel was ready for operation, well, this was way back... in 1952. Although the project started in 1948, it came to completion in May 1952.

Sixty three years in the making and we are loving to be part of this great transformation.

Every year we've been involved in a project around the property, this year it was more like 4 different area we worked on: 
  • the house bathroom - made it a master 4piece bathroom, 
  • the lobby - reception area got a make over for flooring and wall finishes, 
  • then another room, #5 became the cozy, contemporary, welcoming king bed for the modern days 
  • and a 4piece bathroom as well.
It seems like I was quite preoccupied for the last couple of months to say the least!

Pictures from the lobby!














Here are some pictures from the king size bed #5









and here are some pictures from the 4piece bathroom






THE END! (at least for now)

MAY - our anniversary month!


Let's talk about the making of this establishment, originally known as Rest Haven Motel, DBA (doing business as) The Usonian Inn LLC, we are trying to preserve all its original elements and features. Here is a brief historic facts!

The talk and planning and all that, started in 1948.

J. Carry Caraway, formerly of Taliesin and living in Clyde at the time was the architect for the building.
Back then, it took longer to have a property design and build then in the 21st century. Kraemer Bros.  of Plain was designated to take on the project of building.

Here is a picture of the construction crew





The motel known as "Rest Haven" will be completed in 1952 and in operation by May 15th

The motel was the first highway lodging property placed between Madison and La Crosse on Highway 14.  That is a big stretch of 126 miles.

"Spring Green's Newest business enterprise, a modern, 10-unit motel near the intersection of Highways 14 and 23 a half mile northeast of the village, has been completed and was opened last week by the owners, Mr. and Mrs John Michels"

"A tow-story home for the Michels family forms the center of the structure, and long, low wings on either side house the motel units." 
                                                             Home News Spring Green WI May 15,1952

Once, more recent, an architect told us that the architecture of the structure looks worm and makes it very welcoming, like two open arms ready to hug you!

    "The long, flat roof of the motel can be used by the Michels family as a terrace for outdoor living. 
     Each spacious room of the motel has its own bathroom, indirect lighting, radiant heating, and furnishing of modern design.
     Within a week after it had opened for business, the motel owners had accommodated visitors from six states, and one of their overnight guests was Bob McGrath who plays with the Brooklyn Dodgers."
