Owner description: 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.

Just amazing. Especially since it started in 1936. So many nooks and crannies in such small areas. Huge house that accommodated staff also.

“Surprisingly Good Even for the Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

My wife and I were looking forward to seeing Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Fallingwater which was build for the Kaufmanns who owned the premier Pittsburg department store. However, we were skeptical of the interest that the kids would have so we decided just to buy tickets for the grounds and gardens. To our surprise, our 12 and 14 year olds were very interested and we thought we probably should have bought tickets to tour the home but one of the members of the staff pointed out that we still we allowed some limited access to the first floor and the guest house with the grounds only pass which provided us with a reasonable feel for the whole. We found the staff to be knowledgeable and friendly.

“Stunningly Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Go in the fall when the leaves are at their peak for the best experience, but anytime is great. If you go after a rainy spell, the water will be running through and it's an amazing experience. What a masterpiece of architecture!

“" Will visit again "”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

A nationally known attraction. Should be on your list to visit. I have visited other frank Lloyd Wright attractions, and like Fallingwater the best. The grounds are very well kept, tour guides are extremely knowledgeable. The architecticure incorporates futuristic design which must be seen to really appreciate..

“Fabulous historic house with a great story”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This is very well-done and a real treat to visit. It can be a little pricey, but it can't be cheap maintaining a property like this. The photography restriction inside also seems overblown, especially considering it is lifted if you pay for a premium tour - probably the only reason it didn't rate 5 stars. Each tour has its own twist, depending on the guide - most are very well-informed, interesting, and love to tell their stories.
