Frank Lloyd Wright, quite possibly America’s most famous architect, designed the house called Fallingwater. Built for the Kauffman family, it is perched over a waterfall. It immediately became famous. It has been a National Historic Landmark for years, and now, it is also a hotel.
Until recently, admirers of Fallingwater had to limit their visits to a one- or two-hour-long group tour of the home, or perhaps a $100 per person Sunday brunch or sunset hors d’oeuvres. However, the new Insight Onsite Program at Fallingwater allows architecture buffs to explore the site for three days at a time. Limited to eight visitors per session, the three-day seminar includes cocktails and dinners at the iconic residence. The only thing Fallingwater falls short on—is sleeping arrangements. The guests do not actually sleep within the iconic residence; instead they stay at the newer, four-bedroom cottage on the property. (The guesthouse was originally built for the Kauffman’s accountant.)
Falling asleep at Fallingwater with a waterfall right outside your window sure beats sleeping with a sound machine imitating it and this experience for all three days only costs $1,195-$1,595 per person depending on private bedrooms or shared rooms.
