of all the Frank Lloyd Wright homes that i have visited, this one is by far the most beautiful and unique homes . we were so impressed the mind of this architect that we bought the membership to be able to go back several times. it was built in 1936-1938 for the Kaufman family. it is built over a waterfall...

My father was an architect, and I heard all about FLW and Falling Water growing up. Seeing this home was even more awesome and inspiring than I'd imagined. It's bigger than I thought it was. Our tour guide was excellent. We visited on a busy Saturday and were somewhat hurried along. It would have been nice to spend more time... More

You don't have to study architecture to appreciate this beautiful home. It is just amazing! It defies everything that a rational person believes a home/ house should be. We took the tour and felt it was well worth it. You don't mind the price when you realize it goes toward preserving an historic site. We had made reservations ahead of... More

You will have to get a little out of your way to visit this place. The nearest city is Pittsburg, 1.5 hours away. However, it is totally worth the trip. This is hands down one of the most beautiful places I have visited. The house tour is around 1 hours but you will probably want to walk around so plan... More

Fallingwater is in the middle of nowhere, so be prepared for this. However, the experience was amazing. I'm a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, so this was on my bucket list. It fulfilled a dream, and his vision and execution was enlightened. A suggestion, be prepared to walk up and down hills, so if this is a problem arrange support. There... More

This is everything I expected and more. It started in the welcome center. The display about the restoration work was very informative and enlightening. The grounds are a testament to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. The rhododendrons were in bloom. Pristine view of nature, and then we got to the house. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She pointed out all... More

Worth the trip to visit this amazing architectural gem. Visitors center is very nice and appropriate to the area. Be sure to make reservations in advance on the website. Can be quiet warm in the house. During the summer, a tour before noon may be best.

Fallingwater is so unique and enchanting, you can tour it again and again. It was quite crowded the last time we visited, but the tour crew were quite organized, so the wait that we experienced was not long. The tour is interesting to young and old. The area surrounding Fallingwater is beautiful, so there's much to see.

You don't have to be a fan of building architecture or construction techniques to enjoy a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. There is a good deal of walking on the tour, but the setting is beautiful. A trip to visit Fallingwater will not disappoint.

My family and I are FLW fans, especially my 11 year old son. We have been planning this trip for a while. I made reservations for the in depth tour (4:30) a couple months ago and was glad because it did sell out. Once the big day came, I was a little nervous that the home wouldn't live up to... More
