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 house tour was an absolutely fabulous experience. The history, the landscaping and just every part of this was wonderful. We booked our tour about 10 days in advance but upon arrival early, we were able to join a group leaving 10 minutes after we checked in. Frank Lloyd Wright was brilliant in bringing the family's dream home to life.... More

Having been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wrights' work for years, we felt fortunate to tour this cantilevered treasure. Built for the Kaufmann family of Pittsburgh, the house is amazing incorporating the waterfall into the design. Book ahead in summer and avoid Wednesday's when they are closed.

This is a very worthwhile tour. It is not inexpensive; the funds raised pay not only for the guides who lead the tours and the necessary infrastructure, but also for the maintenance of the house and grounds. Wright was an artistic genius, but not necessarily much of a structural engineer. It is fascinating to see and experience this house because... More

What a beautiful and amazing place! Before our tour my husband and I spent some time walking the up and down the grounds and visiting the gift shop and museum. The tour was perfect. Our guide was very informative and kept it interesting. Very glad we went!

Absolutely beautiful setting for this home. Definitely a must see if in the area. Also Knob Creek, another F.L. Wright & last home finished by Wright. Tour guides are excellent. Nice gift shop. Since you can't take any photo's inside, they have a nice collection of books that show the various rooms & explain the designs.

We stopped by on the way to Pittsburgh as part of a road trip so that we can experience some sites on the way. For this particular site, we realized that you really won't learn anything unless you take the tour. We opted out because of limited time, but still had to pay $8 to walk the grounds without a...

My wife and I took the in-depth tour at Fallingwater House on a Thursday in late July 2016. We stayed 5 miles away at a very nice and convenient B&B (Country Seasons Inn, reviewed elsewhere here on TripAdvisor). Fallingwater has a visitor’s center with bathrooms, a café, a gift shop, and a “gallery” where you can view architect models of... More

This site is truly a masterpiece! The iconic architecture inside and out does not disappoint. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The fully furnished house is a window into the past and truly a must-see. Tips: 1-Make reservations and prepare to pay big bucks for the tour. The cost is pricey but worth it to see it once. Tours...

I opted for the in-depth two hour tour and was glad I did. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the house and all things Wright. We had an introduction at each stopping point on the tour and then had time to explore and take pictures before moving on. I would recommend this tour. The visitors center, gift shop and cafe...
