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.

Fallingwater truly is a treasure. This masterpiece that Frank Lloyd Wright created is something that really needs to be seen to be appreciated. Photographs of the home just cannot do it justice. The setting is just incredible, and it's amazing to see how every little thing in the home has been so well thought out. The tour involves quite a... More

An amazing architectural accomplishment. The history of the house and the way it seems to grow out of nature were very interesting. The area was beautiful and the staff was informative and helpful.

Been meaning to visit for years and finally got the chance, and it was snowing! Absolutely beautiful. Did the in depth tour which I would recommend. Our guide said it was the most beautiful he had ever seen it in the snow.

Finally on my third trip to Pittsburgh, I got to visit Fallingwater, and it didn't disappoint. The location is spectacular as well as the architecture of this house. Unfortunately on the day we went all the guided tours were sold out, but we were still able to do the outside tour, which is self guided, and takes you around the... More

The drive from Pittsburgh was nice for a family from Miami not used to seeing the colors of Fall. The setting of Fallingwater is beautiful and offers photo ops with Fallingwater in the background. We also enjoyed learning about Frank Lloyd Wright and his practical thought process. The interior of the home interesting, however some parts of the exterior is... More

Fallingwater has been on my to do's for years and it did not disappoint. I would recommend the earliest tour that you can get as it was very peaceful and serene in the morning but by the afternoon it was over run with tourist's. The house itself has many steps so be prepared for some light exercise. The staff was... More

Everything you've ever heard about this incredible home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is true. The place is a real treat regardless if you know anything about architecture or FLW.

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
