Fallingwater

Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater is among the world's most recognizable buildings. It is arguably one of the most architecturally significant and visionary structures of the 20th century. For those even mildly interested in architecture, Fallingwater is a must-see.

A visit to the site is nothing short of breathtaking. The harmony between the structure and its surroundings is perfect. The synergy of this work of art in its magnificent natural setting forms a lasting impression. You will not be disappointed.

Since Fallingwater is such a popular destination, reservations are strongly advised, especially in the warmer months and weekends. The standard tour of the building lasts about an hour and figure spending another hour or so exploring the grounds and the visitor's center.

Many guests of the Inne at Watson's Choice come speciffically to see Fallingwater. Most who do also tour another Frank Lloyd Wright home, Kentuck Knob, which just happens to be on the way to Fallingwater.

The drive is a pleasant 30 minutes, going up Summit Mountain [stop at Lookout Point for a grand view of the city and valley below], through the picturesque country-side and through beautiful Ohiopyle State Park before arriving at Fallingwater's Bear Run location.
