Still Bend/Bernard Schwartz House is Frank Lloyd Wright's built version of his Life Magazine "Dream House" design from 1938. The house is located on the East Twin River about a mile from Lake Michigan. Frank Lloyd Wright wrote in Life Magazine about the plan, “American...family life is unlike any other in the world and I think this plan recognizes it for pretty much what it is — a little private club — with special privacies, ultra conveniences and style all the while."

The space
This stunning four bedroom, two full, and two half bath LIFE Magazine Dream House is yours to live in as if it is your own. Whether it’s two days or two weeks, you will experience the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wake up in this magical space and observe the sunlight on the brick walls and red tidewater Cypress interior projected through the Wright-designed clerestory windows. Spend time sitting in the 63-foot-long living room and reading a vintage novel pulled from the shelves in the library. Go down to the dock on the river to watch a Sandhill Crane land with a splash.

Every turn will reveal a new detail that reaffirms Wright's genius. Spend a quiet evening around the fireplace and marvel at the thought that you are living in one of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces! This is an opportunity to experience Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision for how the average American Family could live. Relax, slow down and let Wright’s genius unfold before you in a manner that is not possible on a typical house tour. There is something magical, almost spiritual, about being in a Wright space that leaves one transformed.

Any season is lovely at Still Bend. Winter invites you to light one of the fireplaces in the living area and snuggle up with a book, enjoy one of the many dvds about Frank Lloyd Wright, or watch the the wildlife outside as the feeders become the social gathering place for the birds of the neighborhood. When the weather is milder, the beautiful outside area summons you to the firepit or to play games on the green grass.

The house has been featured on the Travel Channel's "Amazing Vacation Homes," The Fine Living Channel's "Around the World in 80 Homes," The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Dwell Magazine, Town and Country and at least 20 other national and regional Magazines.

The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.

Two Rivers is a historic American fishing town where you can still go to the fish store and get fresh-caught Lake Michigan whitefish, enjoy a concert in the town square's bandshell, or visit one of the many museums in town. Two Rivers is the quintessential small town where the clerk will actually measure your foot before selling you shoes in the 120-year-old downtown department store .

Occupancy Limit:

The standard rate is for 6 people. The maximum occupancy is 8 people. Each additional person over 6 is $50 per person per night to a maximum of 8 people. All listed rates include state and local lodging taxes. You must be at least 25 years old to rent the house unless other arrangements have been made.

Amenities:

Please keep in mind that this is an 81-year-old historic property. Renting the house is an opportunity to experience living in the space as it might have been in 1940 when it was completed. Thus, there is NOT air conditioning. Two Rivers, however, is in northern Wisconsin located on Lake Michigan and is known as "Cool City" because of the micro climate created by the lake that keeps the city about 15 degrees cooler than inland locations. There are fans and screens to create a breeze through the house when it is a little warm. Evenings are always cool in Two Rivers.

Bed and bath linens are provided, as well as a full line of kitchen cookware, miscellaneous cooking oils and seasonings, coffee, tea, sugar, flour, cooking and baking utensils, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, etc. Simply pack your bags!

Other Amenities:

• wireless internet
• a large lawn with many yard games
• numerous books and inside games
• a private dock to bird watch or fish
• everything you would expect in a well-stocked vacation home
