KNOW before you GO - THE PROPERTY

The beautiful USONIAN INN MOTEL is located in Spring Green
Wisconsin, home of the world most re-known architect
Frank Lloyd Wright, TALIESIN East.

The architectural style is attractive, uncommonly distinctive,
moreover, the unexpected lays behind those closed doors. 
Built with the ORGANIC architecture in mind, each and every
room has a vista window that overview a garden setting.

We now have 3 KINGS in the house. King the III is our latest addition:
features a carpeted room with private bathroom and a recliner love seat,
plus all amenities.

WHERE WE ARE: E5116 US 14 Spring Green WI 53588






 WHERE YOU WANT TO STAY

The office sits in the middle of the building and we service 2 WINGS, 
it's like "having open arms" to welcome you in; 
  • The East Wing exposes the rooms to the sunrise and you have a view of the backyard and some flower beds and the corn view is in sight.
  • The West Wing will give you great view of the sunset and another area of the backyard,flower beds and more greenery.

We hope you can make up the picture 
below as to where rooms are situated and reserve the room of your choice based on this diagram bellow

Happy travel everyone, we hope to see you soon.

ENJOY A SEASON LIKE NO OTHER: because you never had this one yet!

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)

Trip Advisor 2014 Nomination Award

Thanks to all participants in the Trip Advisor community, the Usonian Inn was awarded again by Trip advisor the Certificate of Excellence!

We are celebrating our award and totally appreciate all participants in reviewing our place! 


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! 

This prestigious award recognizes businesses that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travelers. We again, thank all our guests and Trip Advisor staff for selecting our property for such honor!


"There is little hotels can do to induce people to travel. People don't travel for the purpose of staying in hotels; they stay in hotels because they are located where they want to be, need to be or business takes them."  




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 
our rivers, lakes, drifftless area, parks and all the attractions that set us apart from other places.

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

Making Business decisions that help!

Yes, NOW we accept American Express Credit Cards!

When we did some changes to our card processing system, we decided that it will be worth trying to accept American Express.

Little I knew that the card is offering so many incentive to the cardholders, that  whoever has one is trying to take advantage of the travel miles Plus or Reward Points - I do not have an American Express card but, see for yourself here!

Since we made that decision, I am able to capture more business or more business travelers.

Thank you everyone for bringing your business to our eco-friendly establishment!
