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.

The staff does not like kids, and they make no attempt to hide that. If you have any kids under 18, be advised to make arrangements for them to be elsewhere.

I have toured one other Wright house (in St Louis, MO), but this one is incomparable. I agree the $25 admission fee is steep, but the house, furnishings and art are outstanding. I am not a fan of Wright's uncomfortable furniture, but the furnishings blend with the architecture. We took the standard tour so couldn't take inside photos, but the... More

The round glasses set is thick here. Gray hair, and a willingness to spend money with abandon abound. If hearing about the lives and collectible objects of wealthy department store owners turns you on, by all means drop the coin for the house tour. If you just want to see, and appreciate the most iconic work of one of the... More

Frank Lloyd Wright was an amazing architect of his time and examples of his work abound. But Fallingwater is a very special and almost, sacred spot. It's setting is breathtaking, just walking along the pathway toward the house is full of anticipation and then, Fallingwater comes into view!!! Spectacular, private, intimate - those are all qualities of this architectural keepsake.... More

I love Frank Lloyd Wright's designs. I am so glad that I got to visit this amazing house! The setting is beautiful with so many trees and of course the waterfall. The staff was very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. I hope to visit again in the fall.

As a Frank Lloyd Wright's work lover, I had to visit Fallingwater! I haven't been deceived... In the heart of the Pennsylvania nature, far from the city action and noise, this house is a pure jewel! People who have been living there and their guests were so lucky! I also have to mention that the guided tour is very valuable... More

Wonderful to see how Frank Lloyd Wright blended this vacation home into the natural surroundings. Incorporating a huge boulder as part of the construction, cantilevering the building over a small water fall was an amazing design. The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has the tour system well organized, and if Michelle was typical, the guides really know their stuff.

Imagine stepping back to the '30's to attend a party/gathering at Kauffman's Fallingwaters, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Blending building with nature, the home and guest quarters are not only a sight for the eyes, but also for incorporating the sounds of forest and waterfalls.
