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.

I am amazed at the brilliance of the creativity of Frank Lloyd Wright! The views and the absolute beauty and detail that went into designing this Wonder of the World is well worth the time to visit. The whole area surrounding the house has many things to do too.

This is a must see place even if you have to spend some time off the beaten path to get there. The house tour is $25 which is essential to the experience, incredibly informative, and best booked online to ensure you get the time-slot you want. The one major downside is the limitation in place, restricting guests from photographing inside... More

This 'cottage' designed for the Kaufman family of Pittsburgh was probably FLW most defining piece of architecture. The visitor center and the grounds are gorgeous and very well maintained. The house and site are absolutely breathtaking. It's so hard to believe that this home was built in 1936,,,, FLW was so far ahead of the times with this home. Be... More

This place had been on my list for a long time and finally got here. The setting is beautiful.... rolling hills, streams, and thick forest. Its out of the way a bit (perhaps an hour ride south from the PA turnpike exit). However, it s really worth the trip. They day we went it was a steady rain, but we... More

Seeing Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece in person was even more incredible than I expected. The home is an architectural wonder perched on a boulder in a waterfall. The tour was outstanding, the cafe food delicious, and the gift shop packed with tasteful items to comemmerate the experience.

Frank lloyd wright is an amazing architect and fallingwater, one of his creations, is amazing! We took a one hour tour of the inside of the home and it was amazing. We learned so much and got to see the furniture that was in the house. If you can, definitely visit this breathtaking home built on bear run.

Beautiful, interesting site. Very well run, excellent tour. Tips: Get your tickets on line ahead of time to save a bit. Also, if you've never been you really should do the tour, not just the grounds, worth it. They provide umbrellas to use, so no need to bring one. They don't allow purses/bags over 10 inches, but they do provide... More

Being able to walk through this "living" museum makes for an exceptional experience. You see first hand the design & style of FLW, the pioneer of open concept living, and of blurring lines between indoor & outdoor living. While on the tour, you learn how FLW worked with the Kaufmann family to blend their wishes of wanting to live with... More

Fallingwater sits in such beautiful natural surroundings, that Wright did not need to employ his typical prairie style stained glass windows here. We took the extended full tour and it was worth every penny. I could take all the photos I wanted and we heard full explanations of every space. Even the cafe and shop are beautiful spaces. You feel... More
