Chicago has certainly had its share of famous residents. But none changed the landscape of the city quite like Frank Lloyd Wright--which is why we’re so psyched that his Emil Bach House has finally opened its doors to visitors. (Cue your dad going into architecture-buff hysterics.)
The kitchen and baths in the three-bedroom home were recently updated, but much of the house still looks the way it did in Wright’s time--down to the original plaster walls, painted in Anna Bach's favorite "sun-shine yellow.” The dark walnut counters, exposed-brick walls and huge fireplace are particularly Wright-esque.
You can stop by for a tour any Wednesday ($12; times listed here). Or you can rent the place for an overnight visit, which will run you a mere $750 a night through June 1 (when it goes up to $1,495).
Though the house was built in 1915, there are modern amenities like Wi-Fi, laundry and flatscreen TVs. We’re pretty sure Frank would approve of binge-watching decorating shows.
