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.

Mr. Wright's "Fallingwater" had been a place I desired to see for many years. I had read about it, seen a couple documentaries but had never taken the opportunity to visit; that's until a good friend convinced me, 'there's no time like the present'. It didn't disappoint. The house is an adventure, a wonder to behold with spaces ingeniously designed... More

Fall was a splendid time to visit here. The color in the trees and the late blooms all added very much to the natural beauty. I was surprised to find so many cracks and leaks in the home given the hefty entrance fee (and full price for all, not even a military discount). Huge gift shop, too; where does all... More

I had read about Frank Lloyd Wright many times during in the 1970's & '80"s & heard how he was very much ahead of his times in terms of designing buildings that were functional as well as picturesque. This was totally amazing. The furniture & artwork were mostly original from when the original family lived there. The paths through the... More

Our tour guide was outstanding, and the house itself was very interesting and beautiful. I loved the details of the architecture. The cost of the tour is definitely worth it, and the food there was delicious.

While visiting the east coast last summer, I decided to take a road trip to Mill Run, PA, to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece of modern architecture, Fallingwater. I am so glad that I did! I drove four hours from Stafford, Virginia, to see the house and its environs and it is breathtaking. It is a lovely home and the... More

What a cool stop! Our tour guide was a little mediocre on her presentation skills, but we thought the overall tour was very informative and interesting. The architecture was astonishing and surrounding area was absolutely stunning.

Granted my expectations were pretty low, but this more than topped them. An amazing house, amazing setting, overall great experience. It's a pain in the butt to get to, and to be honest our guide a bit melodramatic and annoying, but a neat place to talk around in. You really get a sense for how amazing Wright was. As beautiful...

Much more than the famous fotos - worth the visit to feel the inside of this very famous Frank Lloyd Wright house, hear stories of the construction and the owners´ lives there. The little cafe serves good, inexpensive food and coffee in the visitors center , while you wait for your tour group´s number to be called.

We had an opportunity to visit Falling Waters in October, just when the surrounding trees were a cascade of colours. What a truly remarkable architectural wonder. We were also fortunate to arrive omn a day when there were very few other visitors and were given a very personal tour of the buildings. Frank Lloyd Wright left a true legacy for... More
