Less big than its older sister, the Fallingwater, but much more homey. If weather permits you can take a walk from the visitor center. If not, take the bus offers by KK. Again stupid and strict rules of photography... That's the part I hate. Anyhow a good lesson on Usonian homes and Wright. Impressive by its modesty but elegant. A... More

I decided to visit Kentuck Knob following a trip to Falling Water. As others have admitted, I wasn't expecting much. I was blown away by the actual structure and the grounds surrounded by artwork. This was certainly a memorable experience and I have a picture of Kentuck Knob in my bedroom. If you go to Falling Water stop here.

My late husband and I are huge Frank Lloyd Wright fans. I wish I could see all his homes and places. This home is owned by a private individual and it is full of fine antiques. It is a beautiful home set in a very private setting.

We'd visited Falling Water twice but somehow never seen Kentuck Knob. I expected a junior version of Falling Water without much new. I was wrong. The building as architecture has its own importance. But beyond that, it is owned by a world-class collector. It reflects the taste of the owner and is full of and surrounded by furniture and objects... More

We visited Kentuk Knob after visiting Fallingwater. It was a short drive, but interesting up a very windy road. We arrived earlier than our scheduled time, but since there wasn't a large crowd in early December, the guide allowed us to join the next group. The entrance area has ample parking and includes a small shop and eatery. You then... More

Highly recommend seeing both Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob in one day. Kentuck Knob has a great house tour but you also have the opportunity to stroll through the sculpture gardens, so give yourself enough time for both. Also be sure to book your tickets ahead of time.

We visited this place on Saturday during foliage season, which is high season for this attraction. We came earlier then our tour time, but they were completely booked and could not move us to earlier spot. If you want, you could walk from visitor center to the house via sculpture garden. Garden is half way to the house, however, trail... More

We had a wonderful time touring the house, and then strolling through the grounds and viewing the sculpture garden. I recommend touring this house first before seeing “Fallingwater” – which is a quick seven miles away. The staff here is very helpful, especially the one manager – Emily. The entire area, the “Laurel Highlands” is beautiful and not one where... More

Karen was our tour guide, she was excellent! This is a must see. Go here before Falling Water. The house is amazing, however, nothing compares to Frank Llloyd Wrights Falling Water. We took my parents for their 50th anniversary and we had a great time. Go to the Days Inn in Donegal it is close to both locations and you... More

We signed up for the in-depth tour and were lucky enough to share the guide with only 1 other person. With just the 3 of us, we were all able to have all of our questions answered and it was very intimate and informal. The house is very interesting. I'm into architecture but I imagine that, even it you're not,... More
