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 have been here twice and each time you see more. Wish there were more places like this today, but with regulations as they are - recreating this is next to impossible. The PA western conservancy does a phenomenal job with everything and our tour guide, Daphne, was amazing and so upbeat!

Although Fallingwater is an hour and a half south of Pittsburgh, do not miss seeing Frank Lloyd Wright's stunning masterpiece. You can rent a car for a day & once off the turnpike, enjoy a very lovely drive. I have seen Taliesin, Taliesin West, Dana House, Robie House, Wright's home & studio in Oak Park.....Fallingwater is the one not to... More

Perfect placement of a house over a rushing stream, with windows to capture the view and a viewing port from the living room floor. The only down side was that Wright was short, didn't see the need for 6' doors, made everything 3/4 scale of a normal house. Spectacular though.

Fallingwater is at once the story of one of the most fantastic homes in America and the example of an ego run wild. First--the house is amazing and certainly in appearance one of the marvels of America. Located in a scenic valley, it seems to spring from the ground in the style that Frank Lloyd Wright popularized. Second-the ego of... More

The trip to Fallingwater was great - great country scenery! The tour was fantastic - really got a glimpse of what life would have been like to live there, as well as lots of great information about Wright and the design and history of the house itself! Through the advice of a friend, we had also booked a night at... More

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.
