We enjoyed quiet afternoons by the creek and evenings admiring the details of the house. The area is beautiful and peaceful. Thanks again for a once in a lifetime stay!Owner's Response: Sounds like a wonderful stay! The Dream House truly is a one of a kind place with great attention to detail. The sound of the creek running while sitting out on the patio is certainly peaceful! We would love to have you back again!
Our 2nd stay at the FLW Dream House was exactly what we needed. Beautiful house, quiet surroundings, very relaxing. The fountain and water feature, creek out back and solo stove for late night fires made for a very relaxing time.Owner's Response: Welcome back! We love our return guests! So, glad you were able to enjoy the quiet surroundings with the fountain and waterfall--a real guest favorite for sure. The Solo stove is a recent addition for guest to enjoy the back yard even more. Glad you fired it up! Hope to have you back again real soon!
This property is amazing. The interior details to the outdoor space exceeded our expectations. The design is stunning, with lots of room for the 6 of us inside and outside. We enjoyed hanging outside on the patio. kitchen was fully equipped with all that you need. We had trouble with WIFI to pull up code to enter, but David was so quick to respond and we were right in! We love the area and are already talking about going back. It truly is a special place.Owner's Response: This definitely is an amazing getaway--especially if you love high design spots. The owner really does a great job with the inside and outdoor spaces. So, glad that you enjoyed these details. Glad to hear that David was so quick to assist you in getting inside the home. It's definitely not a spot with great cell service--so, it's a good idea to download the access information before you arrive! Thanks for being a great guest. We hope to have you back again real soon!
This house is well designed and well built. The area was very quiet and secluded. The only down side was that there are no curtains or shades on the windows due to the style of the house. We had a great time.Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to know you enjoyed your stay at this amazing home. It's true this home has no window treatments or shades on the windows---and these features will likely never be added as it would go against the architectural and design integrity to add these features. With this said, the home is set in a very private 8 acre lot with 8-10 foot overhangs so blocking of the sun and privacy are certainly still to be enjoyed. Thank you for staying with us!
We stayed at the Dream House near Ohiopyle,PA in early July 2020. The Dream House is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home which is true to it's name. It was a dream to stay in and probably the nicest home we've ever rented while on vacation. Most all the furnishings in the home are of Frank Lloyd Wright design as well as the architecture of the home. There was even a waterfall in the backyard, reminiscent of his Fallingwater Home, which we visited. The home was so comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked, which was so great because ate many of our meals at the home. The location was perfect because we were biking the Great Allegheny Passage Trail and it was so easy to take daily trips to the different trailheads. We also discovered that it was very close to George Washington's Fort Necessity and the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, which was an added bonus. Cindy and David at Turning Leaf were great to work with and very responsive in their communication. I will definitely rent again from Turning Leaf! Thanks for a very memorable vacation!Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about our Dream House home. So, glad to hear that you enjoyed the accommodations. The home itself is definitely remarkable but you are so right that it also puts you close to many trailheads, the GAP Trail and Fallingwater. The waterfall feature is a real favorite of guests---so, glad that you enjoyed it

If you are looking to escape from the realities of the hustle and bustle of life, book this place!!!!! It is so very peaceful. This property is clean and has everything that you should need. Cindy, the sales rep has an awesomely professional attitude and makes the booking that much easier!!! My friends and I are definitely making this an annual trip.Owner's Response: Thank you for your guest stay and review! This home is indeed a wonderful respite from a busy life. So, glad you were able to enjoy the home. Love hearing your "shout out" for Cindy. She does really do a wonderful job for our guests! Still very nice to know.
From the moment you enter the property it is clear how much work the owners did to make it feel homey, yet a luxury experience. The grounds are beautiful with lots of room to enjoy the features. The home itself was immaculate and stocked with everything you could ever need and more. It is a gorgeous piece of architecture, unique style, with that Frank Lloyd Wright feel while still being so cozy. The management company was a dream answering any and all questions promptly, knowledgeably and kindly. You can tell that they take great pride in what they provide to both the homeowner and the renter. A+ experience, my family couldn't stop thanking me for finding such a gem!Owner's Response: Ah, thank you for providing such a detailed and positive review! We do work hard to make each guest experience (all really all of properties) a 1st rate experience. So nice to hear we "hit the mark". This is such a special property--you are so right...such a gem! Please come back again real soon! We loved working with you!
House was just lovely, with many Frank Lloyd Wright-style design details and furnishings, spacious layout, lovely sheltered patio, garage for our car, and babbling stream behind the house. We had to cancel some of our outdoor activities during our stay due to heavy rains and their effect, but we honestly were quite content to relax in this beautiful home, read books, and watch DVDs. There was a temporary issue with oven (caused by a prior tenant), but the VacationRentals.com people were very up front about it as soon as they knew, and did everything they could to resolve the situation.Owner's Response: Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and providing a guest review! So, glad to know that you enjoyed your stay! I appreciate your graciousness with respect to the oven issue. We're sorry that we were not able to get it replaced for your guest stay; but, have since address this problem! Come back again real soon!
This home was exceptional. Great space, wonderful views, very well maintained. Be prepared for no cell phone service, but enjoy the peaceful surroundings, spacious rooms and numerous books on Frank Lloyd Wright. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer.Owner's Response: Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and providing a guest review. We really appreciate it. This is a special property and we could not agree with you more on the rooms, peacefulness of the property and tranquil views. You are correct cell service is nearly non existent; so, we appreciate this being communicated to future guests.
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful house while visiting the area to tour Fallingwater and other Frank Lloyd Wright homes. This home is perfect and the design is so authentic. Even down to the red plates and the address! I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this. The home is nicely appointed and the outdoor areas are nice and comfortable. The home is out of town so it is peaceful. There is a river in the back yard and it is fun to sit by it and have a cocktail in the evening. Ohiopyle is nearby and it is worth seeing. It is so cute and the river walk is very nice. As an architect, I appreciated the detail and respectful use of materials in this home. We loved this house so much, we went out to buy groceries so we could eat in. We just liked hanging out and it felt like Frank himself had designed this home. I recommend this house highly! If you are an architect or designer, you will really appreciate this house. I did! Rent it! You will love it!Owner's Response: Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for taking the time to provide such a detailed review and recommendation. It is great to hear that you were able to take in the beauty of the setting but also appreciate some of the smaller touches of this beautiful home (love that you appreciate the red plates). The owners have paid close attention to the FLW details; so, always great to have guests that enjoy these! Loved having you! Come back again real soon.
The house and surrounding property were wonderful for a family vacation. We ate out once for dinner, and otherwise cooked in for the remaining meals. The covered patio was perfect for eating outside. We had an evening of heavy rain, but were well protected as we ate. I would enthusiastically recommend this property and we will be staying there again in the future.Owner's Response: Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide a guest review! We really loved hosting your family getaway! This is truly a spectacular house; and you are right the covered stone patio is nicely oversized; so, you can sit outside and be protected in some of the worst weather! So, glad you were able to enjoy it. We would love to have you back again real soon.
