A touch of class in quaint Arkansas

7 Rooms

You’re sure to find peace and tranquility at the luxurious Pratt Place Inn and Barn. The quaint Fayetteville, Arkansas hotel, situated atop Sassafras Hill, is surrounded by 140 sprawling acres of wooded land.

The inn’s combination of European and Southern design features splendid wraparound porches and a welcoming entrance with custom French walnut doors. Inside, the main floor includes three beautifully appointed parlors, a lounge and a cigar room furnished with leather chairs and intricate wood paneling. Throughout the inn, antiques and other one-of-a-kind decorative items the owners have collected from around the world are on display. Notable pieces include the inn’s 18th-century French armoires, Persian rugs, and the antique Indonesian puppets set on a Chinese altar table. In some spaces, the hardwood floors and wooden ceilings are original, and a lovely wooden staircase elegantly connects the main level with the second floor.

Pratt Place Inn and Barn has seven luxurious guest rooms located on its second and third floors. Each room has its own unique décor and is named after one of the property’s native trees. All of the rooms feature gas fireplaces and breathtaking views of the grounds, and most rooms offer private verandas where you can leisurely pass the time away. The marble bathrooms feature oversized showers and two-person whirlpool tubs.

Across from the inn you’ll find Pratt Place Cottage, an English-style two-bedroom home built in 1929 that's on the National Register of Historic Places. The updated cottage features marble bathrooms, a living room, dining room and kitchen, and it serves as the perfect space to host a small gathering.

In addition to the unique setting, this Forbes Travel Guide Four Star hotel has a rich history. Cassius and Margaret Pratt purchased the 19th-century rural home and its surrounding land in 1900. Since then, the property has remained in the same family. Julian Archer and his wife, Jane, inherited the estate more than 30 years ago and have done a complete remodel to the property. They opened the boutique hotel, to much fanfare, in 2008.
