Trip Report Falling Water house

Jump to last reply

What does everyone, or atleast those who've been there, think of this Falling Water house built by Frank Loyd Wright for the Kaufman family? I've just returned from a guided tour of PA. And here is what I think of it: waste of time, especially in the Summer.
Well, for starters, the walk is real far, 1/4 mile from the parking lot. For the old and handicapped it's not worth it, as then you have to walk back up the hill.

The house itself failed to astonish, and is really hyped too much. It sits on rocks above an unimpressive so-called waterfall. There are no elevators, so again you have to walk up the stairs all the time. The thing is just plain and boring. Small rooms, bland decor, stay away from the balconey as the walls are way too low.
Anyway, it's just too way out there to bother with... unless you are a huge F.L.Wright fan.
