Fallingwater, one of the late architect Frank Lloyd Wright's best-known works, hangs over Bear Run waterfall in Big Run, Pa.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Fallingwater house (now a museum) could be the site of your next uber-classy night away from home. You and some friends can stay the night on the museum’s property for a paltry $1,195 per person.
But don’t worry, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. The eye-popping price includes an in-depth tour of the home and a three-day stay at a newer, four-bedroom home built on the same grounds as the museum. Yes, that's right, you don't get to stay in the actual house for your dozen Benjamins.
In the upcoming months, curators of the Mill Run, Pa., museum will provide a new program, Insight Onsite, for visitors to take in the designs and history of the museum. The program includes an extensive tour of the house, which was built at the height of the Great Depression for department store mogul Edgar Kauffman Sr., and considered one of Wright’s most impressive pieces.
The house is about a four-hour drive from downtown D.C., which is pretty much a typical rush-hour trip anyway, right?
