I have been a Frank Lloyd Wright fan for a long time and to be able to actually stay in a house he designed was so much fun. It is located really close to Kentuck Knob and Fallingwater, so we were able to visit them as well. Heather, one of the owners, arranged for us to have a delicious meal... More

We have been waiting until our son turned six to bring him on the Fallingwater tour, combined with a stay at Polymath Park. His birthday coincided with the year of our 15th wedding anniversary, so it was perfect timing for a special family trip. Heather was extremely accommodating and entertained all my questions before our stay. I felt well-prepared for... More

I love snooping around other people's houses, and on the Polymath Park tour you get to wander around three houses, and you can sit on the furniture and everything! In a stroke of good luck, we got the tour from the owner himself, which made it extra fascinating. After the slickly polished operations at nearby Frank Lloyd Wright properties, Polymath... More

We visited Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater three years ago, so we decided to stop here for a tour of Polymath Park, since we were back in the area. The one hour tour consists of being driven through the dense forest in a van by your guide. You are expertly guided through the houses and learn all things "Wright". The three... More

Had the tour by Tom the owner who has such passion for the homes and property. Amazing restoration and upkeep with personal ownership and humble pride. Tree tops is tranquil relaxing and lovely. Food is fresh and delicious. The multi talented staff is equally passionate. Great experience. Thanks!

To round out a weekend visit to see Wright sites in the Laurel Highlands, my wife and I toured Duncan House and its sister houses, which were designed by a Wright apprentice. The owner of the properties drove the tour van and gave the tour, which gave the tour a homespun quality, and made the experience especially compelling, as he... More

I have known about Polymath Park for many years, and even though it is closer to my house than Fallingwater or Kentuck Knob or any other FLW buildings, I had not visited until last month. We were lucky enough to be on a tour led by Tom, who owns the resort, so we got first-hand information about the three houses... More

The house has been beautifully reconstructed on a picture perfect site. The over night stay gives you a great experience of how a FLW house feels to live in The tree top restruant is amazing. Great service and really good food. We met other very friendly local couples there that added to the perfect evening. Treat yourself and enjoy this... More

This is the most livable of any of the FLW houses that we saw. Again there were not many people on our tour so we got extra attention to our questions etc.

So Duncan House is one of the only rentable Frank Lloyd Wright properties in the country. The extended family wanted to do a weekend away hitting Fallingwater, and what better experience to have than to spend a few nights in one of his houses?! Just on paper alone - to say you spent a couple of nights in a FLW... More
