Wags and I have been meaning to get here and then some good friends surprised us with a gift certificate and our visit got pushed to the top of the to do list!! We can't believe it took so long for us to share this gem with you!
Their slogan is "Dining Enriched with Nature." Executive Chef Mark F. Henry spent some time with us chatting about this restaurant and one soon to be very close to our resorts! Tree Tops is a 20 minute ride from the Donegal turnpike exit. Mark's goal is to provide the consumer with "unique organic cuisine." Take a peak at our slide show. Excellent food! (Note to the ladies, wear flats as the walk way is shale.)
So you are saying where is it and why is it there? Great history story! We are certain that many of our readers have toured Frank Lloyd Wright's homes, Falling Water or Kentuck Knob. They are true treasures in the midst of our Laurel Highlands! We are also certain that many of you are NOT aware that there are three other homes at Polymath Park Resort that have his signature and influence!
"Polymath Park was the brain child of Peter Berndtson's. He was an apprentice under Frank Lloyd Wright back in the 50's. This 125 acre parcel then named Treetops and Mountain Circles was to have 24 houses each set within a 300 foot circular clearing within the woods. From "Bing" the development would have looked like a grape vine! Only two homes were ever built.
They are the Balter House a 1964 custom stone and redwood vacation home. Then in 1965 the Blum House was completed. It is another masterpiece of Peter Berndtson. The natural surroundings, glass walls, and windows provide a long view of the 20 acre meadow, reflecting pond, and our Laurel Highlands. As promised there is also the The Duncan House which is a 1957 Usonian designed by Frank Lloyd Wright which was saved by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, moved and rebuilt at the park in 2007." All three properties offer lodging opprotunities!"
Back to Tree Tops! They are open Thursday-Saturday 4 -10p.m. and Sunday 11a.m. to 6 p.m. with what we've heard is an incredible brunch! Reservations are a must call 877-833-7829 extension 3. Share your experience! Address: 1 Usonian Drive, Acme, PA 15610. For an aerial map CLICK HERE.
