Now, this is worth blogging about!


The Usonian Inn, Spring Green, Wisconsin was the first Taliesin inspired inn. 2017 approaches and it's time to celebrate 65 years since the opening day!

May 15 1952 the property started it's operation and it's been in business since; years passed by and several owner changed hands a few time; within the last 10 years it was our honor to call ourselves the owner of the historic Usonian Inn LLC.

We are pleased to have people separate our property by calling it a boutique, yes, we are an independent property and yes, it's old - but upgraded, and yes is historic and charming. All it takes for you is to open the room's door to find out more, unless you really take the time to check us online and look for photo gallery and slideshows to learn more about us!

The property has its significance, its story, the differentiating factor for the architecture and the unchangeable historical facts that put us on the map!

At this point it's time for us to move on, the property is for sale.

Now, this is worth blogging about!

As seen on our web page (decal is being shipped)
We are always here to resolve any issues you bring to our attention while staying with us; at times people are on the property but don't ask questions or address issues, they rather go home and review us
mentioning the little inconveniences they find while here. 

We strive to offer best customer service we can and there is staff in the office from 7:30 AM to 10PM; so, bring your thoughts to us and we'll work on it!

We love to encourage you to stay with us and judge for yourself what others say! 

We are a destination, from nature art and famous people that lived here or still live here, you can explore

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 history of facts!

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

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 place 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, an architect told us that the architecture of the structure looks worm and makes it very welcoming, like tow 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."
