This was my second visit to the Duncan House. A group of us stayed last summer for two nights and liked it so much, we decided to make a return trip. The house and grounds are well maintained. The staff was very courteous and met all of our expectations. The park also has a great restaurant on site that I... More

A wonderful play but the house needs some repair and general maintenance. They have had some roof leaking and the general cleaning needs some focus and attention. Still all in all it was a nice visit and the Treetops Restaruant was first class. The Balter House on the same property is the house to stay in.

Thank you for your stay and your feedback. Unfortunately, we had a tree fall on the roof and it is repaired (not leaking thus far, Thank GOD!) however, we are making sure that it does not leak before we paint the inside small area - that you are referring to. I am glad that you got to experience staying in... More

The 3 magnificent homes and Tree Tops Restaurant were worth the trip, and a favorite part for my whole family. Coming from NJ, it paired perfectly with a visit to Hershey Park (for the kids) and Fallingwater (for the Architect husband). The owners were lovely and gracious, and the Park they have created is impressive. They are surely hardworking talented... More

Great example of Frank Lloyd Wright design for the middle class American. His vision was unparalleled!

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast or a lover of art and nature, this is a must see! A wonderful tour of all three FLW homes in the middle of the beautiful Laurel Mountains. Finish it off with the 4 star restaurant at Tree Tops on the grounds in a beautiful setting.

Viewing these houses and learning about how the Duncan House was acquired and moved and rebuilt was fascinating. Owner and tour guide of Polymath Park, Heather, was knowledgable and very personable. I wish that the other Frank LLoyd Wright houses in the area could combine forces, create one cohesive website and combine tours, if possible! I recommend a visit and... More

We stayed in the Balter house for just one night while doing the local FLW tours, and wow, what a privilege. The feel of the place is definitely "authentic" in that many things are completely original, even random details like a comic book from the 1960s lying on a shelf or the hilariously old school stove. The place is a... More

Heather was such a sweety, good folks trying to preserve these homes built by Frank Lloyd Wright! Do the tour or stay but please spread the word! Great people with a passion for these homes!

We would highly recommend staying at the Polymath Park resort anytime, but it's even better when tied with a visit to Fallingwater and / or Kentuck Knob!

My wife and I and two friends had dinner at Tree Tops and were treated to a truly remarkable meal. A unique ambiance combining the natural setting with a Frank Lloyd Wright style. The food was amazing, and the people made us feel like family. The following morning, Heather, chef and owner (with husband Tom), conducted our tour of the... More
