"Anyone over six feet tall is a weed"

If you anticipate a trip to the Cleveland area, you should consider staying at the Louis Penfield House, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home.

Penfield House is one of Wright's Usonian homes, and unique among them because of the owner Penfield's height:

"Louis Penfield was six feet eight inches tall. When meeting Mr. Wright for the first time, he asked, 'Can you design a house for someone as tall as me?' Wright was silent for a moment, then replied, 'Yes, but we’ll have to design a machine to tip you sideways first'."

The rates look reasonable (you're getting the whole house, remember) and it seems like a pretty unique opportunity to stay in a piece of living history.
