Booked the guided tour which allows you access to the interior of some of the rooms of the home. Wish we would have booked the in depth tour to see the bedrooms and basement. They shuttle you from the gift shop up to the home. You are allowed to take as many pictures as you like while outside. No pictures are permitted of the interior. When in the kitchen make sure you notice the television and the hidden stove top, very unique! The view from the just out back of the house is amazing. You can take the shuttle back to the giftshop of walk the "woodland walk" there is a wide variety of art pieces as well as part of the Berlin wall. Very enjoyable, I enjoyed this visit better than Fallingwater.

We saw Fallingwater the day before and then had a tour of this Hagan home. The use of local materials and the way it blends into its surroundings is great to see. It was a cold, cloudy day and the house was quite dark inside. Lots of little neat touches So glad Mrs Hagan insisted on certain features because Frank Lloyd Wright may be a great architect from a design perspective but really was clueless on functionality in certain respects. We liked that we could tour the inside of this house (although the price seemed high for the short tour). We then walked back through the grounds so we could see the various sculptures that Lord Palumbo collected and placed throughout. It takes about 20 minutes from the house back to the visitor center.

I only had to wait about 20 minutes for the house tour. It starts with a shuttle ride to the home. At the end of the tour, you have the option of taking the shuttle back or walking through an amazing sculpture garden in the woods. I highly recommend the walk. One of the sculptures is an intact section of the Berlin Wall. In order to facilitate social distancing, some of the rooms are no longer included in the tour, but you can look in the windows and see them. The design of the home is typical FLW but with variations requested by the home owners... Some were a tad bit surprising. Do not miss the view from the overlook right behind the house... Only a very short walk The gift shop is not very large, definitely smaller than at Fallingwater. However, you can shop without paying admission to the house.

We had visited Fallingwater and enjoyed it very much but getting into the Hagan house was a whole new experience. Our tour guide Chris must know everything about this wonderful home and she made the past come alive with details on the of the house and owners. Take time to enjoy the grounds and views.

Because of Covid, tours were extremely limited in numbers so we reserved about two weeks ahead of our visit to make sure we got on a tour. Turns out, we were the only two on the tour. Only four people were allowed on the tour anyway. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We did the in-depth tour, which means you get to go into all of the rooms, including the basement. If you have the 70 or more minutes, take this tour. We learned the history of the home from the beginning to the interesting present day owners, all the while appreciating the architecture. I especially loved the kitchen with the original stove. When you are done, walk to the view and down the path through the woods to view the sculptures. You can also take the mini bus back to the visitors' center. This is the same bus that takes you up the hill as it is a steep ascent. At the entrance there is a nice gift shop. Covid protocols are in place. If you are in the area, make sure you visit.
