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.

This is everything I expected and more. It started in the welcome center. The display about the restoration work was very informative and enlightening. The grounds are a testament to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. The rhododendrons were in bloom. Pristine view of nature, and then we got to the house. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She pointed out all the details that make this house unique and special. She also added pertinent history of the land, construction and owners.

I could go on and on but let me just say it is worth the time and money and much more.

Worth the trip to visit this amazing architectural gem. Visitors center is very nice and appropriate to the area. Be sure to make reservations in advance on the website. Can be quiet warm in the house. During the summer, a tour before noon may be best.

Fallingwater is so unique and enchanting, you can tour it again and again. It was quite crowded the last time we visited, but the tour crew were quite organized, so the wait that we experienced was not long. The tour is interesting to young and old. The area surrounding Fallingwater is beautiful, so there's much to see.

You don't have to be a fan of building architecture or construction techniques to enjoy a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. There is a good deal of walking on the tour, but the setting is beautiful. A trip to visit Fallingwater will not disappoint.

My family and I are FLW fans, especially my 11 year old son. We have been planning this trip for a while. I made reservations for the in depth tour (4:30) a couple months ago and was glad because it did sell out. Once the big day came, I was a little nervous that the home wouldn't live up to the hype. Well, it did. Quite simply-- spectacular. Make sure to go early enough to eat and shop and wander the grounds. The parking lot is very near gift shop if you have a late tour and need to shop first and store your things. Umbrellas are plentiful /available to everyone, so don't bring your own. It rained on our tour briefly, but that didn't spoil things. The food at the cafe was excellent. Go to Fallingwater!
