Always bend, also known as Schwartz House, has square brick forms under overhanging flat roofs. Inside the four-bedroom Interwar Manitowac County home are elegant horizontal spaces, with staggered ceilings, red cypress panels, and glass panels overlooking its wide lawns.

Wright described his 1938 Life design as “a small, private club with special intimacies, amenities, and all-weather style.” He realized and updated the design when he built it for Fern and Bernard Schwartz, who spotted his design in the magazine. Wight also designed furniture, cushions, lamps and even fruit bowls for the building.

Still Bend sleeps up to six people for $525 per night (with a minimum stay of two nights). The house is perched on the East Twin River and is featured in Netflix’s second season The World’s Most Incredible Vacation Rentals. Its lawned lot has a fire pit and wooden steps giving access to a jetty, providing a quiet place to while away the hours.
