CLIO, Calif. and#8212; From Wisconsin to California, Frank Lloyd Wright devotees are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the renowned architectand#8217;s home and studio. Taliesin, the Spring Green, Wisc. National Historic Landmark, embodies Wrightand#8217;s architecture philosophy and his vision of design inspired by nature. And while the Midwestern site is certainly worth a visit, fans of Wrightand#8217;s architecture can get their fix closer to home at Nakoma Golf Resort in Plumas County, close to Tahoe and Truckee.

Wrightand#8217;s organic approach to architecture is particularly evident at the Nakoma Golf Resortand#8217;s Clubhouse with its geometric roof line composed of octagonal towers and the 60 foot-high Wigwam Room, which features a four-sided central fireplace. His iconic design ethos resonates in the resort communityand#8217;s 12 Taliesin-designed villas, which all convey Frank Lloyd Wrightand#8217;s belief in the centrality of the hearth in a home. Each Villa wraps around a central stone fireplace and features a private patio with hot tub, spa-like bathrooms and amenities throughout.

Perched above the wild and scenic Feather River in Northern Californiaand#8217;s Plumas County, The Dragon is a mountain course with views from every tee box. The Clubhouse, faithfully built from a 1924 design by Frank Lloyd Wright, sits above the course and features a restaurant, bar and golf shop.

The Nakoma Golf Resort is located on County Road A-15, between Portola and Graeagle. It is two and one-half hours from Sacramento, about one hour from Reno and 50 minutes from Truckee.
