Historic Property on the market


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!

On Your Side - Part II



Other TRAVEL TIPS


Verify and clarify. Call to verify your reservations and arrangements. Get the details  
behind vague promises that you’ll be staying at a “five star” resort or sailing on a  
luxury” cruise ship. When you have the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the airlines, car rental companies, and hotels you’ll be using, confirm all arrangements for yourself.  
See our Inn's policy

Put it on paper. Get the details of your vacation in writing. Get a copy of the company’s cancellation and refund policies, and ask “What if...?” Consider whether some form of travel cancellation insurance may be appropriate.


Use a credit card to make your purchase. If you don’t get what you paid for, you may be able to dispute the charges with your credit card company. However, don’t give your account number to any business until you’ve verified that it is reputable.

Avoid a travel club flub. Ask questions before joining a travel club. Sometimes, a “free trial” membership can result in unauthorized charges on your credit card. Find out what you’ll get for your money and how you can cancel.

Won a “free” vacation? Not so fast. Scam artists may tell you you’ve won a “free” vacation, but then claim to need your credit card number for “verification.” Tell them to take a hike. If the promotion is legit, you never need to pay for a prize.

Info on Credit card transactions, reservations and more

As we have information passed on to us, merchants, I would like to share some helpful tips with our customers, you need to be aware of!


By authorizing your credit card for any reservations with us you are having the dollar amount on hold for a certain period of time. Precisely  - Visa and Master Card will hold the amount up to 7 days and Discover - up to 30 days.
This is no a charge on your card, it might appear as a charge on your bank statement if the card you use was a debit or an on hold transaction with your Credit Card for that dollar amount.


By the time you check in with us, your transaction might still show as of an "on hold" transaction, however the only time we charge your card is when you check in unless we discuss otherwhise.

So, in order to comply with that, what will be for us "Avoiding Unnecessary Additional Fees" we will follow procedures we are instructed; what is expected of us is:
  • 1. to have the card authorized prior to charging it, and charge the sale on the same card - otherwise we are charged with "Misuse of Authorization" fees by Visa.
  • 2. to charge the card and do it within the allotted time frame - otherwise if the  authorization was not obtained prior to the  charges occurrence, Visa calls this a "Zero Floor Limit" fee and that (the fee) is passed on to us, the merchants.
On the other  hand, we are offering a discount to those who are paying cash; however, that doesn't eliminate us having to ask for a credit card information we will have on file.


Happy traveling and spending in 2010!
