Day Trip to Wright’s Penwern

Black Point Estate and GardensDue to popular demand we have added a second coach for our Day Trip to Wright’s Penwern.

Extend your Wright Plus experience on this luxury day trip to two elite retreats in Wisconsin. Tour Penwern, a magnificently restored lakeside summer estate in Delavan, that Wright designed in 1901-03 for Fred B. Jones, a Chicago businessman. This privately owned residence is rarely open to public visitors. Our expert guides will accompany you on the coach and take you through the main house, boathouse and stables. Compare Penwern to an elaborate Queen Anne retreat when you tour Black Point Estate and Gardens (Cudell, 1888) on the shores of Lake Geneva. Stop for lunch at the Geneva Inn and enjoy stunning views of the lake.

Includes morning coffee and snacks, tours, lunch and transportation. Space is limited.
