This house, its location and the way it is built into a rock, with the waterfall, make it a true master piece by famous architect Frank LLoyd Wright. Everything from the furniture, window design, choice of woods in the interior were meticulous included in the design, making it very organic. When I saw the house and its interior they immediately...

The only complaint that I would have for them is to put less people in the tour groups. It was extremely crowded and it was a very pricey tour. I was expecting a little bit more bang for my buck.

I first visited Fallingwater in 1980. Since then, much has changed and not for the better. The parking lot is now the size of a small mall parking lot and the entire experience is almost one of being on a Disneyland tour. The tours are separated on busy days like rush hour trains, every five minutes. You are hurried along... More

The house was what I expected and more. the grounds are very nice, part of a state park. The house is being restored again, a couple rooms were closed when we visited. The design is just what I expected, but I didn't realize the cost for the house and guest house until the tour.

We participated in the In-Depth Tour (2-hrs, small group). Henry was our guide throughout Fallingwater's main house and guest house. I highly suggest taking the In-Depth Tour as you can take pictures inside and you get to see the guest house. I would have been really disappointed if I couldn't take images on the inside of the home. The tour... More

But way too formal. Wow, I know that this place holds many original FLW pieces, but the security and rules do not allow you to really imagine life in this beautiful home. It is extremely well run with a great shop and restaurant, but lighten up a little!

We visited Fallingwater over Thanksgiving weekend. We love FLW, however, we weren't sure what to expect particularly since we were going with our sons (ages 8, 8, 7). Our entire family was stunned at the beauty of this house. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and entertaining. One great thing to note - the tours are not scripted so each guide... More

Recognized all over the world, I am privileged to live only a couple hours from Fallingwater. People travel from all over the world to view this house and it does not disappoint. A marvel of engineering and artistry, Fallingwater is definitely something you must see if you are able to make the trip. Also, check out Wright's Usonian Kentuck Knob... More

We enjoyed Fallingwater. The structure of the home is amazing. Keep in mind that the home decor is very outdated to keep it original.
