My grandmother was in the Fellowship at Taliesen adn Taliesen West. I grew up in FLW influenced houses my whole life. I did not know what a basement or a garage were. But it was not until visiting Fallingwater that I realized what my grandmother's houses were trying to get at. This house and the land around it are beyond words. You must visit this house. Our trip to the Laurel Highlands started off visiting Fort Necessity which was a bit lack luster but historically significant and it had a lovley visitor center with a short movie and an interactive visitor center which is great for kids. You then walk across the street to the Fort where it all went down, it is a circular wooden encampment in an open field. Then you can hike or drive up the hill to Washington's tavern that is set in the period. We stayed at the Sumitt Inn which was awesome. The rooms themselves were clean and had great views, they were normal rooms nothing luxurious in the room but the old historic Inn's public spaces are where you want to spend your time. We hung out next to the huge fireplace and played chess and then we watched the sun go down on the glorious porch looking over Union town, really wonderful views. We ate a lovley meal at the hotel and enjoyed the whole atmosphere. It was great fun reading the old newspaper stories about Einstein visiting or dances held on Tuesday's .
We arose early to get to the earliest Fallingwater tour that costs a bit extra but it is totally worth it since you get to see the whole house and you get to take pictures inside. It is worth it. The grounds are beautiful to hike and Kentuck Knob FLW usonian house is not far away. Kentuck Knob is owned by a private British Lord, friend of Fergie and formerly DIana. The gift store and cafe are fab and the house is really comforting. Great to see both Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob so similar in some ways but executed very differently. The grounds on this house are amazing. There is also a sculpture park that you can go through. We got the Package at the hotel that included two nights stay, breakfast , passes to Fort Necessity national Park, Kentuck Knob, and Fallingwater. We took this trip in May after first going to Antietam and Gettysburg. The Ohiopyle falls was alos beautiful, made me wish I had brought my bike and my kayak. Really worth the trip.
