Winter hours and you don't get to see all of it.

It was our first time to HOTR and in the winter, you can only take guided tours and not all the buildings are available to explore. That was probably a good thing, because it's... read more

It was our first time to HOTR and in the winter, you can only take guided tours and not all the buildings are available to explore. That was probably a good thing, because it's pretty overwhelming! Tour guides were excellent: knowledgable, passionate about the material and friendly. Will go again in the summer when we can do a self-guided experience... More

I visited with my lover for a Goofy oddity trip. Although it was the odd season and only 1/3 of it was open it was a cool thing to do. Especially the infinity room built out over the gorge.

This was certifiably bizarre! Alex Jordan spent the years from 1945 on building this monstrosity in his own style and it was really out there. There are three sections: the original house and two other huge buildings. The Japanese garden is serene. The music machines were interesting. The highlight for my husband was the section called the Heritage of the... More

Went to visit House on the Rock. A great attraction, if you have never been there before - should put it on your list of things to do. We went January and the House offered a guided tour, with some of the attractions being closed due to the winter season. Cost was not outrageous and tour was informative and delightful.... More

Going through this was like gluttony for my eyes! 1. Infinity Room----Nice! (If you are afraid of heights this is a no-no.) 2. 1st section----Interesting. (A little musty and claustrophobic and dark.) 3. 2nd/3rd section----CRAZY, BIZARRE, AWESOME! (sensory overload.) If you want the best experience go through all 3 sections. A little pricey. For me WORTH IT! Bring comfortable shoes... More

Been there a couple of times. Always a new experience. Visited just before Christmas. Unbelievable. I have no idea how they know what goes where. So many Christmas displays its boggles ones mind. Do not miss this attraction if you're in the area. But they are closed after Christmas for a few weeks, so call to be sure they're open.

I called a hotel near the Frank Lloyd Wright home Taliesin, WI. It was called "The House on the Rock Resort." It is .8 miles from Taliesin. The hotel was full. I was referred to "The House on the Rock Inn", instead. I called the number which they gave me. There was availability and I booked a room. The price... More
