Mill Run (Fallingwater) Things to Do

    Kentuck Knob is another building created by Frank Lloyd Wright in Mill Run that many tourists do not seem to know about. However, if you're in the area, and you are interested in Frank Lloyd Wright's designs, then it would be a shame for you to miss Kentuck Knob! Kentuck Knob is not as large or well-known as Falling Waters, but it is still very beautiful. Aside from the building itself, there is also some interesting artwork around the building. If you want to visit Kentuck Knob, it is best to make reservations. (The website I've listed below gives all of the details of when it's open, prices, etc.)

    Falling Waters is considered to be one of the greatest works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Indeed, it is a stunning architectural achievement! Falling Waters lies over the edge of a little waterfall, over a river. The building is impressive from the outside, but the inside is also very nice. The style of the interior of Falling Waters is 1970s.

    If you want to visit Falling Waters, make sure to call for reservations! (Please go to the site I've listed for information about prices, reservations, directions, etc.)

    I made a cold call at Fallingwater. As you approach you are reminded to give the name of your group and your appointment time. Appointment time? Yes, they do have their heads up their asses here. Price of Admission is $15.00 and no, you can not take pictures inside of Fallingwater®.

    Green light from the forest

    by Orchid Written Aug 25, 2013

    I only stopped for a coffee prior to the house tour, so have no comments about the food.
    By 4:30pm they were pretty much out anyhow. The food is reputed to be made of local ingredients and is well regarded.

    The coffee was self serve, so could not be described as 'proper' coffee, and the fact that it was superior to any coffee I'd bought anywhere else in the US to that time is more a comment on the quality of coffee served in the US, than any special wonderfulness of the coffee served here!

    It was reasonably priced, and the setting in the rotunda with the green light form the surrounding forest coming through the glass walls was pleasant.

Mill Run (Fallingwater) What to Pack

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When most people go to Falling Waters, they don't realize that in order to get to the actual building, you must walk for a little while. The walk is not extremely long, but it's long enough that I'd suggest wearing appropriate shoes and clothing for walking. Don't wear anything that you wouldn't want to risk getting dirty.

    If you travel to Falling Waters from autumn to early spring, it may be cold. Even when inside Falling Waters, because of the water, it is very cool. I suggest a light jacket or something that will keep you warm, so that you can enjoy the tour. In the summer, the cool air is quite refreshing!
