The Seth Peterson Cottage

           Back in Nov. we had the opportunty to stay in a Frank Lloyd Wright designed cottage, called the Seth Peterson Cottage. It's located in a remote spot of Mirror Lake State Park near the Wisconsin Dells. It's one of a few places designed by FLW at which you can spend an overnight or two. Being such a wonderful place I thought I would share some of it with you. The cottage was designed for it's owner Seth Peterson, but sadly he never spent a night there. It was purchased, lived in and then sold, as land was being bought up for the purpose of a state park. The park system, not knowing exactly what to do with the property, left it fall into disrepair for about 30 years. Discovered by a local, she led a group to bring the cottage back to it's origianl state.                                                                                

Next time a view of the grounds and the inside. And as always, just click on the photo to enlarge.
