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."
                                                            Home News Spring Green, WI May 15,1952

History in the making - Room 11 contemporary remodeling

What's new!

Spring has sprung and this is an excellent season for refreshing our property; the approach was - small area remodeling. 

Although we are always looking after our customer desire and comfort, it might not be for everyone.

So, this spring we worked hard and definitely achieved the final product to our likings. 
We so hope that everyone will enjoy the room remodeled style and our choice of new contemporary furnishing.

The description of the remodeled room in my own words will be: simple, create more homey atmosphere, make it looks more spacious, airy,... attractive and best, quiet and secluded!


Room 11 - corner view
With hard work and more time spend then we wished, room 11 is ready to rent.

Here is an array of pictures for the renovation in the making...





Room 11 Remodeling in The Making Slideshow: Carolina’s pics in Spring Green was created with TripAdvisor TripWow!

After all, hotels don't create travel; they serve it


The hotel industry is facing severe business challenges; how we react to those will determine how quickly we can return to some balance and profit growth.

As I learned more about the industry, I wrote this article and I hope you find it helpful!

Places to see - my Tripadvisor public maps


As I would say it: I've been traveling extensively before taking on this business;

I always love traveling, geography, maps, aerial view. My traveling experience started after we moved from New York, N.Y. - when we would find a reason to go by car back to see the city and relatives; we love to observe all those changes going from one state to another. The interstates are always fun, the speed (not the speeding tickets tough), the scenery changes as well, driving different seasons is as much fun.

Then phase 2 was flying places, that was even more fun!
It's not that I love traveling, I am in love with everything that's about traveling; the motions, the excitement, the sound of rolling luggages, the airport landscape, the take off - the flight itself, everything.

I think at times about me that I was Born to travel, so I like to share part of my travel map with you as I am working on it!

You will never run short of places to see!
