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.

Good tour, very scenic, visit when the weather is good

Good tour, very scenic, visit when the weather is good. The house is smaller inside than I thought. The grounds are lovely.

This Frank Lloyd Wright designed home is about 45 minutes outside of Pittsburgh but worth the drive. Amazing architecture in a serene and beautiful setting. We did the extended tour (2 hours) so that we could take photographs. If you are a FLW fan, don't miss it.

What can be said about this place that hasn't already? It's, in many ways, the pinnacle of modern, organic architecture. Like so many great sites, it must be experienced in person to be truly appreciated. I've studied this and other FLW works for years, and was still astounded by the home as it unfolded along the landscape. There are also... More

I took the in-depth tour, where you get the opportunity to visit the whole compound in a small group (we were 6), and take interior pictures. Winter but no snow, and the sun showed up by the end of the tour, which made for very nice pictures (we fought the cold for some minutes at the viewpoint down the falls,... More

Took our family to western Pa for Christmas vacation and had to make a stop at Fallingwater. Kids had seen pictures and learned about the house in school and i had only seen pictures. Worth the trip! People working here know there history and the area around the home was beautiful in late December. Wish there was snow.

I really enjoyed the tour of Falling water. We attended on the the tour week of the season so many of the outside sculptures were covered but I am so excited to return in the fall to see how the colors blend with the accent furniture as noted in the tour.

My husband and I took a trip to Fallingwater on January 2nd. We were given a discount on tickets through our B&B, Hartzell House. I've wanted to tour this house for a very long time and I'm so happy that we had the opportunity to. It really is a gem! Our tour guide, Nathan, was very knowledgeable about the house,... More

My husband and I live in Toronto and stopped to see FallingWater on our road trip to the Southern United States. It was truly a masterpiece. I highly recommend going in the Spring/Summer and taking the upgraded tour (about $70) where you can tour the inside of the main home and the guest home. The homes are not only a... More

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.
