We had the pleasure of a great tour last week at Polymath Park. The area is serene and beautiful and you feel like you're in the treetops. The property is owned by a young family who are devoted to preserving the houses and the legacy and Heather was a lovely tour guide. Definitely worth visiting if you're in the area... More

Absolutely amazing! The house was clean and warm upon arrival. Easily changeable heat settings. The fireplace is incredible. Pre-cut wood is close to the house, but needs dried out. Great example of classic architecture joining with Western Pennsylvania landscape. Rodney's Corner Bar is a five minute drive. Great dive bar with quality food and drink. Stone Villa Wine Cellars is... More

My college daughter and I stayed over Thursday to Friday and Friday morning went to Fallingwater.The owner, Heather, was very accommodating with our visit. Paid through PayPal and was charged the regular rate when the website had a discounted weeknight rate; she refunded the difference, no problem. It was a VERY cold night with snow all over when we arrived... More

As part of our visit to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob we decided to plan a stay at Polymath Park Resort. There are three original houses located around the estate, the Duncan House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and two houses designed by his apprentices - the Blum House and the Balter House. We stayed in the Balter House. Each house... More

We had a great visit, would highly recommend staying here if there is a vacancy. I was able to prepare 3 course meal in the kitchen afterwards we enjoyed desert sitting by the fire and enjoying the tree house like views all around us. Can't wait to see this place in the winter. The staff was pleasant, friendly and very... More

FABULOUS FIND of Three (3) OUTSTANDING "Undiscovered" (at least to us) vintage Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture Homes on the SAME Property at 'Polymath Park', very near Fallingwater in the amazingly beautiful hills of western PA. We were astonished to Discover this most interesting and well preserved find of authentic late original Wright's architecture 'Usonian' design homes. These homes are all... More

We were visiting Fallingwater this August with teens in tow and wanted to have an experience that would interest the whole family. Staying at Polymath Park was the highlight for everyone. We arrived late and walked into a welcoming home at the Blum House. The kids loved the uniqueness of the house and my husband, the FLW enthusiast, loved the... More

Definitely worth stopping while you're in the area to see Fallingwater and/or Kentuck Knob - these houses are more normal-sized and since people actually stay overnight in them, they look much more lived in so you can see how some of the principles actually aren't bad ideas when they're applied in a more user-friendly way. The guide drives you to... More

This is the site of an FLW house that was painstakingly disassembled in Illinois, moved here, and reassembled piece by piece by the current owner. On the day we visited, the usual guide had a day off and the owner and assembler gave us the tour. He gave us all the details about the ordeal. The site also has two... More

I rented the Duncan House for two nights for myself and my boyfriend. It was absolutely beyond worth it. Although it has some "rental" qualities (the furniture isn't original, you can't use the appliances) it still feels like you are living in an authentic Wright House. The home is still well decorated and in excellent condition. Everyone at Polymath was... More
