Great folks at the tour site and a wonderful tour guide. Glad that we paid for the private tour which gave us time to wander through and revisit areas of the house that we liked. Marty was a terrific tour guide.

The Stockman house is a wonderful look at the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright...and well worth the time to tour. Our guide was Jay, and he was excellent--knowledgeable, interesting, and had some great stories about the house and its furnishings.

It is a long drive to Mason City from most places, e.g. Chicago, Minneapolis or even Des Moines. If you are an architecture fan, it's worth the trip. We went in the winter, but it seems like it is a place to visit in Spring/Summer....More

We arranged a private tour for 4 of us. The volunteer guide (Marty, I think) was fabulous. She was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the tour very much and would highly recommend it if you're ever in or passing through Mason City.

After checking out of the Historic Park Inn, my family and I took a very informative tour of the Stockman House. If you're going to be in Mason City and like Frank Lloyd Wright, visiting here is a no-brainer.

This house is much older than other Frank Lloyd Wright houses we have visited. His early Prairie Style was much different from his later Usonian style homes. The tours of the house were very interesting and well done.
