Perched on a rock above a gushing waterfall, this historic house was built for a Pittsburgh family by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s, ingeniously designed to blend harmoniously into the tranquil and beautiful woods around it.

The home is an icon; not to be missed. The staff is shop-worn.

I drove nearly 300 miles to check this place off of my bucket list; and it was worth every mile. Why not perfect? The staff regularly disappointed; from our arrival (did not... read more

The staff regularly disappointed; from our arrival (did not tell us to check in); to check in ('you were told that your tour could be as much as 30" after your reservation - huh?); to all but...

I have always wanted to tour this incredible piece of architectural art and design. Finally I planned a weekend to see both Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob. It is a bucket list experience. Buying advance tickets online is a necessity. I chose 1:30, after seeing Kentuck Knob at 11:00. After the hour tour, I ate lunch at the cafe. The tours... More

Fallingwater is an architectural gem and it is wonderful that the son of the original owners donated the home and land so people can view the genius of Frank L. Wright. The tour was well done and the guides are very knowledgeable. A treat!

It was very crowded by the time I visited in the afternoon. I thought the house was OK. Not a huge fan of architecture, but I enjoyed the tour.

A beautiful house and grounds! Booking tickets in advance is a must for this popular property. Plan on arriving an hour or so early to enjoy the grounds, take pictures, and visit the cafe and museum store. Our tour guide acted like a teacher that was more interested in enforcing the rules rather than helping you learn about the property,... More

We decided to jump off the exit and check out Fallingwater on a last minute whim. I had just read about it about 5 minutes before we got to the exit. I was a little worried we might not get in since the website said you should have reservations. The parking lot was packed when we got there, but we... More

I've been to other Frank Lloyd Wright homes and this one is just as spectacular as the rest. Looking at the house and grounds was, of course, amazing. The things Mr. Wright thought to do with the structure were very cutting edge. However, I found the staff rude from the ticket booth worker (we did purchase ahead of time) right... More

This iconic site and home are unique and need to be seen in person to be appreciated. The guided tour of the house was thorough and fascinating.

Crowds can be an issue, try and visit early and leave early. We lucked out and got in and out before the major crowds made it. Be sure to bring your cameras.

WOW! Much more than I expected! Very amazing architecture to look at and walk through. Take the in-depth tour or the brunch tour of you can to see ALL the rooms. There is a lot of history in this place and the guides know how to share it and know a lot about how this place was built etc.. Amazing... More
