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 often admired this home in books, and it was worth the drive to see it first hand. Simply incredible. If you don't have time for the tour or it is sold out, the grounds... read more

I have often admired this home in books, and it was worth the drive to see it first hand. Simply incredible. If you don't have time for the tour or it is sold out, the grounds are worth walking. From one viewpoint, the house just seems to float, postcard perfect, amidst the forest surroundings. The house was great, but I... More

Just looking at pictures of Fallingwater does not do it justice. Seeing the home in its wooded setting is a fabulous opportunity. From the entrance to the Visitor Center, visitors get a sense of tranquility. The house tour includes a lot of information from a knowledgeable and friendly guide. No photos allowed while on the tour. You can hear the... More

My husband has wanted to see Fallingwater for a long time now, and we finally made the trip last week. To use his word - spectacular! We paid extra for the in depth tour and it was worth it! It is the only tour that allows you to take photographs inside the house.

The house tour was extremely interesting and the tour guide was able to provide interesting insights in Lloyd's life and the inner-workings of the designing and building of the house. Purchasing tickets online is the best way to ensure a spot in a tour. Worth visiting for sure!

This house is a stunning example of organic architecture. Boulders are incorporated into the structure of the house; you can hear the waterfalls throughout the whole house; every room has tons of windows and a stunning view. The while cantilevered thing is also pretty amazing: terraces and walls without traditional supports. The gift shop is also great.

This is an incredible house/museum with all the original furniture still intact and in place. The tour guides love the place, and their enthusiasm shows it. I've been 5 tines I over the years in all seasons. Any time is the right time to see it.

This is considered by many the best designed house of the 20th century. Take the in-depth tour to get a good insight into the design and building process, and to get a sense of how this amazing house lived. Furnished with both original and reproduction furniture and paintings, the house blends perfectly into the surrounding woods and water. It is... More

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright or architecture fan, this is a must. Even if you are not,it is a must. This home is a spectacular with wonderful scenery. It is a bit of a drive but well worth it.

We were staying in Pittsburgh for few days and drove to Falling Water. This visit was one of the highlights of our trip to Quebec/Toronto/Pittsburgh. If you have ever heard about this house, go there!
