About Tia Graves Fisher

I grew up in Wisconsin on a nearby farm that directly borders Taliesin. After a four-decades long foray to Los Angeles for college and career, I moved back home with my husband. We've spent the past three years renovating Inwood, traveling to Tubac, Arizona during the winters. (Check out our Arizona HomeAway listing.) We enjoy international travel and visiting our three adult children.

Tia Graves Fisher purchased this guest house in 2006

Why Tia Graves Fisher chose Spring Green

I played in the woods surrounding the home as a young child, back in the day when a five year old could play outside unsupervised. Inwood has been in my family since my parents purchased the home some 30 years ago from Jack (John) and Lu Howe, who were neighbors and friends. My grandfather and father worked alongside Frank Lloyd Wright providing me with organic sensibility and unique insight. Retiring back home from Los Angeles has been a dream come true. Sharing our special home with guests feels right. The entire original mid-century home is now available to guests for the first time in over half a century. We have added an interior locked door that separates our space from our guest's space to maximize your enjoyment.

Wonderful location and superb hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Even though we were late on our planned arrival time, Tia waited for us to describe this amazing historic and comfortable home. Everything we could need was supplied. The shower was especially wonderful. Overall, It was as if we were living in a tree house. After a lovely evening at the American Players Theater, it was so wonderful to come back to the house, cross it’s magicsl bridge, passed the waterfall and step inside.

Amazing piece of history

  • 5 of 5

Unique, amazing views, secluded, historic, comfortable are just a few of the terms I would use to describe this property. If you like the pictures in the listing, you will be amazed at all that they don’t show. Seeing is believing. The owner does a wonderful job of explaining the history behind this home. The satellite TV worked great. The WiFi connection is very strong in the downstairs bedroom. This is a remote location so don’t expect cell coverage. We have Verizon and it was basically zero at the property and only slightly better in Spring Green. There is a beautiful new deck that has amazing views of Taliesin. This property is truly a gem. We felt so privileged to have been able to stay here.

This property is ridiculously COOL!!

  • 5 of 5

Fans of Frank Lloyd Wright, we were excited to stay in a rental that was close to Taliesin and related to his life. Since this property was originally designed by his "right hand man"...we felt even more connected to his experience here. Our host was amazing at making us feel comfortable and also extremely knowledgeable about the area and Mr. Wright. I would highly recommend this property!

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully unique property that also happens to have great hosts. Tia and Greg were very generous with recommendations in the area and local history, but also considerate of our time. Particularly if you're going to be visiting Taliesin, this is the perfect place to stay.

Owner's Response: We couldn't have orchestrated a better view than the one we shared with you from our living room as we watched the storm roll in from over Taliesin to the west. We appreciate that you soaked in what makes this area so special even though the rain put a damper on biking the back roads.

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a must see. The owners Greg and Tia greeted us upon arrival and were extremely kind. Tia gave us the layout of their property, the rental, part of their own home as well as updates they are making. Not only was this VRBO close to Taliesin, it overlooks the whole property! If your looking for a quiet, remote location with views you can only imagine, this is it! Tia also gave us a few old magazines to read regarding the local history, in which her family was included. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this property as well as the owners, Greg and Tia. Thank you for making our first trip to Spring Green unforgettable!!

Beautiful, relaxing retreat with an amazing location and terrific hosts

  • 5 of 5

We visited Spring Green for the weekend in pursuit of quiet and open space, and to get away from the City. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect location or better hosts. We got to feel like real "locals," staying just across the hill from Taliesin and just down the road from the AMP, where we picnicked and saw an evening play. The owners have fully renovated their guest suite with great attention, choosing finishes and modern updates that are comfortable, yet true to the home's history. We loved chatting with Tia about her memories of growing up in Spring Green, and her personal write-ups of all the local haunts were hugely helpful to us as we explored the area.
