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.

This place is a delight even in November! $8 per person for the grounds tour, museum, gift store and cafe but to get into the actual house you pay nearly 3 times more for an adult! If you are into nature and architecture you have to have it in your bucket list. Takes at least 30 mins from any nearby... More

We did a family campus tour of this pristine location! Frank Lloyd Wright's Architectural design for this unique location was amazing. We went during 2016 November on Black Friday. It was a chilly mid-day, for a walk-around the campus, nevertheless, the $8 entry fee per person was well worth it. There is so much to take in, if you are... More

It was absolutely gorgeous. Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius. He built this house into the surrounding rocks and waterfall - not just beside it. The guide was very informative and you could tell she loves this place. Takes about an hour. Keep in mind there are about 100 steps total on this tour, including coming back up the path.... More

This is not a wonder of the world, but it is something that you should see at least once in your life. No intros here, I think the house and property can speak for itself.

This is a beautiful example of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture. The rooms in the house are not roped off, so you have the feeling of being an actual guest and not just a tourist. It is a marvel. A place I could easily visit again. The staff was friendly and informative. We had lunch at the cafe on sight and... More

We sprung for the In-Depth Tour, so we'd have plenty of time there after making the long drive over from NYC. The main differences between the regular Guided Tour (GT) and the In-Depth Tour (IDT) are: 1. The IDT is first thing in the morning whereas the GTs can be later in the day, 2. The IDT lasts longer, which... More

Thank you for visiting and for your comments. The House is beautiful and if you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, the In Depth tour is worth it. Everything should, as you say, enjoy extra time walking around the grounds. The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has approximately 5,000 acres in this area and there are some beautiful trails to walk and... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. It is a little bit of a drive from pittsburg. It is located along PA Route 381 between the villages of Mill Run and Ohiopyle. It is approximately 19 miles south of the Donegal exit (Exit #91) of the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76) or 10 miles north of US Route 40. Once you get... More

Though I grew up not much more than an hour from this world treasure, it took one of my children's field trips to actually fulfill my lifelong dream to visit! Because we were part of a school group, the price was dramatically reduced. Fees for both group and private tours are listed on the website. Though it poured with rain... More
