Pratt Place Inn and Barn offers three separate buildings for guests to enjoy: the inn, the cottage and the Barn. And each has its own unique design style.
The inn is a 19th-century rural residence with lovely wraparound porches and French walnut doors. Inside on the main floor, you will find three beautifully appointed parlors, a lounge and a cigar room furnished with leather chairs and featuring intricate wood paneling. Throughout the inn, antiques, art and other unique items the owners have collected on their world travels are on display, including French armoires from the 1600s to the 1800s, Persian carpets and antique Indonesian puppets set on a Chinese altar table. Some of the hardwood floors and ceilings are original, and the intricately carved wooden staircase between the main level and the second floor is quite striking.
The Forbes Travel Guide Four Star hotel’s English-style cottage, built in 1929, is on the National Register of Historic Places. It offers two bedrooms, two marble bathrooms, a living room, a dining room (that seats up to eight people) and a kitchen. The cottage also features a wood-burning fireplace and a beautiful flagstone terrace facing a lovely private wooded area. High ceilings, hardwood floors, Persian rugs, antique furniture, contemporary- and traditional-style furnishings make for cozy and charming accommodations.
Pratt Place Barn was originally built as a 14-stall horse barn and has been transformed into one of the most popular wedding and event venues in the state. The Barn features a classic gambrel roof, fabulous wood décor, glowing chandeliers and facilities that can be used to prepare food for up to 400 guests.
