About Joan Martinie

As a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, I was surprised when we first time saw the house. Former owners David and Jillayne Arena and their family spent 36 years and did a great job restoring the house.

Joan Martinie purchased this house in 2011

Ideal Weekend Location for Frank Lloyd Wright fans and family of adults

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in this lovely Frank Lloyd Wright home. What a pleasure to be here the week of his 150th birthday! The shower is great, nice closet space, beds were restful. Owner was very good about communication. Central location. We really enjoyed the feel of the home, especially by the second evening. Hints - bring a hand mirror to prop up by the master sink; yard is small and overgrown so was not really able to utilize; piano in living room so bring music to play; able to park in front for arrival/departure/daytime otherwise around the corner for overnight; bit of a sketchy, noisy neighborhood but quiet throughout night; trundle bed for two in small office on first floor opens off the kitchen with no door so no real privacy or sound proofing; kitchen well stocked for general cooking needs; folding luggage racks would be nice addition to each room. Great home for a long weekend but might be pressed for shower needs if staying for a week with a full house.

Owner's Response: Fran, Thank you so much for choosing the Frank Lloyd Wright house! I am so glade that you brought a mirror. I had many arguments with my husband about the mirror. I had chose one that I think is beautiful but he disagree to put there. He wants to find one Mission Style mirror and fit the little place. Thank you for your support! Joan

Perfect timing

  • 4 of 5

Came here for the Wright and Like tour 2017. The house is between two houses on the tour so it was extremely convenient. Home is in good shape for 100 years old. We had a great time staying in a Frank Lloyd Wright House while on a tour of other Frank Lloyd Wright places.
