My wife and I planned our weekend getaway around Fallingwater and it did not disappoint. You do need a reservation if you want a guaranteed shot at a tour, and they did accommodate us when we showed up late for our time slot. The Tour was informative, interesting and was just about the right amount of time. This house is... More

We have seen several of his homes over the years, but this is the absolute 'Gold Standard'. Just remarkable how well it is incorporated into the site in every way imaginable.

FL a Wright was a visionary with talents. The house is impressive. The only thing I did not enjoy was the strict photography rules. I would think they should be proud.... Make an online appointment but if you arrive early don't worry as a group leaves every 10 minutes. Discover the beauty and after visit find the viewing point.It Is... More

I've wanted to see Fallingwater for years and decided to finally do it over Spring Break. It was worth the trip and admission. Reservations are required and young children are not permitted. We ate lunch at the Fallingwater Cafe so that we'd have time to make it to Kentuck Knob (highly recommended by friends and hosts.) afterwards. The lunch was... More

The house is really well preserved and guides have good knowledge about the house. You can feel their enthusiasm. We left our dog at Nemocolin Wooflands Resort - a great and inexpensive place to leave the pooch since pets are not allowed into the house. Took the in-depth tour. It was very impressive and there was no one else there... More

The official Fallingwater web site states "Fallingwater opens for the season on March 15. Tours are offered daily except Wednesday. Grounds are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, weather permitting. The entrance gate closes at 4 p.m.". If you accept Fallingwater's web site information on its face-value, you may be in for a shock because it is probable... More

I have been wanting to visit Fallingwater for years, but it's location and price scared me away until this weekend. It was well worth the trip and the money! I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. Frank Lloyd Wright was brilliant and really put thought into every detail. I'm tempted to go back in the spring or... More

Went with college daughter studying Architecture and was blown away by this tour/visit. Only four people including us and a docent giving us a tour of all rooms. About 2 hour tour. Were able to take photographs and get the background information on various pieces of furniture, design choices, changes to original plans, and facts and interesting other bits of... More

Each season is very special and very different. This 'home' is incredible. Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius of design. The tour is very informative. I have been there about 6 times now and each tour guide gives you the same basic information but each one also gives you a different view of the home and the people behind it.
