Now Renting on Airbnb: Frank Lloyd Wright Starchitecture

Those hoping to find a quiet getaway on the shamed-yet-redeemed vacation-rentals site Airbnb apparently have some hard-hitting 20th-century architecture to choose from, among then not one but two Frank Lloyd Wright designs. In 1909, the architect designed his first-ever Prairie-style subdivision to include a large bunkhouse that was eventually torn down; remaining on Alpine Meadows Ranch are still a house and a cabin, not to mention wildlife such as elk, deer, and moose. Sited 4,200 feet above sea level near the protected Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness area, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house asks $5,000 a week. The hot tub, fireplace, and surrounding acreage works to justify the staggering pricetag, but clearly the star power is the real draw here.
