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®.

Of course you will want to see Fallingwater but don't miss another one of his houses, Kentuck Knob, just 15 minutes away. It's definately worth a trip.
Fallingwater will not disappoint! There is a guided tour that will take you thoughout this home built over a waterfall and give you history on Wright and the people he built Fallingwater for. It really is extraordinary.
Only 7 miles away, is another one of the homes that Wright built. It's called Kentuck Knob. It is privately owned by a jet setting millionaire who is kind enough to let tours continue though his residence, even when he is home! It has beautiful grounds and sculpture gardens, truly not something to be missed.
There is no photography allowed inside either of the buildings
It's best to make reservations in advance for both locations.

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!
