We went to Fallingwater for a long weekend, but also went knowing there were other Wright houses in the area. Kentuck Knob was the second best, after Fallingwater. The house itself is breathtaking. What makes it even better is the extended outdoor sculpture garden that guests can wander through. If you're at Fallingwater, it's definitely worth a trip to Kentuck... More

This tour is easier to come by (doesn't book up as quickly) and makes an excellent counterpoint to the nearby Fallingwater. While I think I would have enjoyed either of them separately, I enjoyed them much more back to back. It's also easier to imagine living at Kentuck Knob, in that it feels a bit less like a museum. And... More

I also reviewed Fallingwater and mentioned that if you're not there to see Frank Lloyd Wright then you might not be impressed, but this is a GREAT piece of history. Kentuck Knob is beautiful. It's a beautiful piece of history. Although a tight space, I'd love to live there!

Perfect day activity for anyone visiting the Pittsburgh area. Also visit the neighboring FALLINGWATER, also designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. To be admired by students of architecture, art, and even nature is appreciated as the landscape becomes one with the house.

Beautiful grounds with an amazing lookout point that was the highlight. Interesting home completed later in Wright's career is well worth the visit. Our experience was somewhat jaded by a guide that seemed humorless and uptight.

This lesser-known Frank Lloyd Wright residence is located just a six-mile drive from the iconic Fallingwater home in PA. Kentuck Knob, also known as the Hagen House, was built by, and previously owned by, dairy farmers I.N. and Bernadine Hagen [dairy farmers]. The home is now owned by Lord Peter Palumbo and his wife, Hayat. Open to the public, it... More

The tour was well worth the $23 or $16 if you are a student! The property has a lot to look at while waiting for the tour. The tour was 45 minutes which was just the right amount of time. Our tour guide was very nice and gave a lot of little tidbits about the original owners as well as... More

This is worth the tickets for a visit. Different than Fallingwater, which is also in the area and a must see. This house is called a Usonian House and was designed for the Hagan Family (ice cream). Very interesting use of space.

A very intimate experience compared to the Fallingwater experience. No photos inside - good guide. An incredible opportunity to feel emotionally the impact of FLW design and an interesting example of what happens when there is client interference in the design. You can see where it went wrong and why FLW wanted to design all aspects of the living experience.... More
