Staying in a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is a bucket list item for fans of America's most acclaimed architect. The Amberg House was completed in 1911 at the pinnacle of Wright's Prairie Style influence.

Though every Wright home is special, the Amberg House is a unique collaboration between Wright and Marion Mahony. Mahony worked with Wright from 1896 until 1909. A graduate of MIT, she was the first woman to be licensed as an architect in the US.

The space
The Guest Suite at the Amberg House is a wonderfully isolated space with a private entrance, beautifully appointed bedroom and bath, adjacent sitting room with desk, wonderfully equipped kitchen and laundry. When the weather is fine, you'll also be able to enjoy the gardens, pond and waterfall, just outside your windows.

In 2013, we were lucky enough to purchase the Amberg House, one of only two homes in Grand Rapids designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his associate Marion Mahony Griffin. For six years we have renovated the home room by room. And now it is ready to share with Wright enthusiasts from near and far. When we began the renovation, it's fair to say that it was an all-consuming hobby. Both my wife and I had full-time professional careers, so much of the work was done evenings, weekends and vacations. In 2017, I transitioned from the world of management consulting into residential contracting. Consequently, my work and hobbies are more closely aligned.
