Retro retreat: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, USA

Falling

It's an icon of American architecture and one of the most famous residential houses in the world – and you can now stay in Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright  for Edgar J. Kaufmann senior back in 1934, the house in rural south west Pennsylvania is a stunning architectural feat – built partly over a waterfall, it uses locally quarried stones and houses an active stream, with cantilevered terraces intended to make you feel at one with the nature all around.

If you want to experience what it's like to live there first hand, you can. A standard tour is $18, but for $1,195, you (and up to seven others) can have the freedom of the 5,300 square foot house (with all other visits suspended), but unfortunately you can't sleep there. However, you will get to sleep in a new 'Frank Lloyd Wright style' home on the property grounds.

  • My best friend and best man Graeme is studying architecture, in part inspired by this house. It really is a special thing.

    I actually checked on this and contacted the people at Falling Water. You can stay at a Bed abd Breakfast near the house, but you can not stay in the actual house. You can reserve a private tour, but that’s about it.
