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

If you are planning a trip to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, don't miss the opportunity to tour Polymath Park and stay in either Duncan House or Balter House. We stayed in Balter and it was wonderful. Nestled in the trees, screened porch cantilevered into the forest and master bedroom has three walls of windows. Perfect tour of all three... More

This is a rare opportunity to spend the night at a Frank Lloyd Wright property. Since we were only 2 people, we stayed at Blum House, designed by one of his apprentices. The price on weeknights is a bargain, especially if there are more than just 2 of you (house has 3 bedrooms) We enjoyed walking to the other 2... More

The owner went out of her way to coordinate a visit a day before we arrived from NYC. She gave us a private tour of both the Blum and Duncan houses. The houses are well maintained with great attention to detail - this is a private project and the love of architecture in general and FLW in particular is evident.... More
