Pratt Place has made wedding planning so easy. I am getting married there but live out of state and their pictures, responsiveness and going the extra mile have made them simply the best! And, they offer table and chairs rentals so I don't have to find vendors for that as well.

I have lamented the fact that I did not look at more reviews last year prior to booking the Barn for my daughter's wedding; maybe it would have saved us a lot of heartache, anguish and disappointment throughout 2014, hindsight is 20-20! So, for those of you looking to rent the Barn for your loved one's wedding or other event, PLEASE heed this review! Be careful, be very, very careful! We rented the Barn in January 2014 for a 12/31/2014 wedding. From the beginning we had several issues: 1) In our initial meeting, several things we were told, changed later, for which we told we must have "misunderstood". In our opinion, there was no misunderstanding! 2) One of our payments (a check for $800.00) was lost, in which we were told it must have been stolen in the mail and to simply write another check! Keep in mind, I actually hand-delivered the payment to the Inn, received a written receipt and received an emailed receipt AND they were not even aware of the lost check until I asked them why it had not been deposited because it had not cleared my bank account! Maybe this is one of the many reasons they had to file for BANKRUPTCY January 15, 2015!
3) After reserving the Barn in March for a "walk-through" rehearsal and paying the $100.00 to do so, my daughter was left a message on her phone in August, stating that the Barn had been rented for another event and that we would not be able to do our rehearsal in the Barn! She was NOT told that this was a possibility at the time of making the reservation! At the very least, in our opinion, they should have offered us the site at full price before booking another event-VERY BAD business practice! Unfortunately, I do not have room in this review to list other issues we had...but if you are considering Pratt Place for your event, I sincerely and whole-heartedly caution you! I will NOT ever recommend Pratt Place Barn to anyone and please remember, that they did file for Chapter 11 BANKRUPTCY January 15, 2015!

This venue was gorgeous! The staff was so helpful in accommodating mine and my family's needs! We were able to relax on the wedding weekend and not stress at all by having everyone in one location (at the Inn). I highly recommend it. It made for a beautiful wedding in the barn and for beautiful wedding party photos as well! We also had the wedding in winter and the barn's heating was perfect.

I had my wedding at Pratt Place back in April, and it was the perfect venue! Pratt Place is well known for its Barn, but I chose an intimate ceremony and reception at the Cottage. I wouldn't change a thing about the space. There was plenty of room in the front yard for an outdoor ceremony (I had around 50 guests), and the house provided so much character, we hardly had to do any decorating. I would definitely recommend this space for other brides!

I recently had my wedding at the Pratt Place Inn and was promised numerous things by the Inn's staffer on several occasions. After a staff change, I brought up what the last Innkeeper had promised and wasn't told anything different.
Wedding day came, a/c was not working, trash had been left behind by the wedding the night before, staff seemed completely clueless to anything around him. The kitchen at the Inn is an unfinished mess, cake and decor was left behind from previous wedding(s), the refrigerators were packed to capacity so our caterers had to be creative with keeping things cool. The Barn on the property had a wedding the same evening and they started STEALING our food items out of the kitchen. Very poorly organized.
One of the things we were told, we'd have the Inn until 6am the following morning...but at 10:30pm, a staffer approached my mother, informing her we had an hour and a half to remove our items from the Inn. We had a later evening wedding, beginning at 7:30pm, and by the time we'd cut the cake, guests were helping pack up tables and chairs.
Another promise not kept - we rented a room because they assured us if we did, we could open the sitting areas and parlors for use during the wedding. False. They were roped off and we were told only guests staying at the Inn could use them.
After a long night of frustration, we retreated to our room. It was so uncomfortably hot, we complained 3 times before the Innkeeper brought us a portable a/c unit for our room and admittedly, he didn't know how to hook it up. We gave up and just left at 7am sharp, with the room hotter even than when we first checked in!
I wrote the Inn and asked for a refund of the ROOM ONLY. They declined. Our only option was to stay another night there so they could show us "4 Diamond Quality." We declined because we experienced first hand what a disgrace this Inn is. DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT GET MARRIED HERE. DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE! Awful, unfriendly and uneducated staff. It's unfortunate I cannot re-do my wedding, don't make the same mistake I did!

Pratt Place Inn and Barn responded with the following comments:

Dear CtinaWatson,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your event and stay at Pratt Place Inn. We want each of our guests to have the best possible experience during their stay. I sincerely apologize for the defective air conditioning unit in your room. As a historic building, we are constantly doing our best to keep up with maintenance.

I am surprised to hear that our staff did not immediately respond to your complaint about the trash from the previous wedding. At times, it is difficult for our overnight staff to gauge the trash outside from a previous event until the next morning, when the sun is up. Our staff is always prompt to correct any error of foresight from the night before.

I would also like to apologize for the miscommunication from our previous staff. At Pratt Place Inn, we pride ourselves on training each Innkeeper to ensure consistency of information. Per our contract, there are certain areas reserved for guests only, and you received and signed this document upon your reservation. We have the utmost respect for our guests, so we must hold to certain curfews for events in order to ensure each of our overnight guests has a pleasant, quiet night’s sleep.

We hope each guest has a satisfying experience at Pratt Place Inn. On the rare occasion our guests do not feel their stay met their expectations, we seek another opportunity to show the customer service and luxury of our Inn. Thank you again for your feedback.

Our daughter and new son-in-law held their wedding reception in the newly refurbished barn behind the beautiful old Inn. Although a little pricey for our budget... They still offered the most "bang for our buck" as compared to so many other local venues. They allowed use of our own caterer, bartenders, liquor supply, etc. They worked closely with us to accommodate our every whim within reason ; ) The rooms in the Inn are large, lavish yet comfy and beautifully adorned. The staff is WONDERFUL! Charming, peaceful, a "hidden gem" just outside of the University of Arkansas campus and near famous Dixon Street for fine dining and musical delight! Ask for Rachel Kirksey if you are planning an event at the Inn or barn. She is delightful! Sincerely, Kim n Ralph Emery

The staff at Pratt Place Inn and barn was nothing short of phenomenal. The space is beyond beautiful and we got everything we wanted in a wedding venue. We rented the entire inn and barn, staying there Friday and Saturday night and having the barn Saturday at 8am through Monday at noon. Our vendors had plenty of time for set up and break down, and the event was really and truly beyond amazing. They could use someone who is meant to be an "event planner" who is just there at your event all night, almost helping run it for you, and I think they could make a killing offering someone like that to a wedding package. Just to be clear, I mean someone who is almost like a wedding or even planner. This isn't something that was *missing* that they should be offering, but something that I think they'd make a killing if they did offer it.
We loved Paul and Jacob and Isabella and Rachel and Sharon so much. The Archers are very wonderful people. The only thing that would make me change this review is if I don't get my deposit back :-)

The Pratt Place Inn & Barn was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception! They even let me come up to the Inn before the wedding took place to take some bridal shots and allowed me to use one of the empty guest rooms to change in. They also allowed my bridesmaids and I to get ready in one of the rooms on the wedding day and to take pictures in the Inn before the ceremony. The boys were able to get ready downstairs before it started as well. The Inn Keepers are super helpful, and the owners of the property are spectacular to work with! We have become great friends with the owners, and I would recommend the barn or inn to anyone planning a wedding. Our wedding theme was fall, with leaves and twigs everywhere, and the barn was the perfect location for such a wedding. There is lots of room for parking, and our guests really enjoyed the wedding and atmosphere. Bathrooms are located inside the barn, and there are also several kitchens for catering and hiding those extra decorations and such. The location doubles as a reception site as well. Also amazing is the fact that 20 tables and 120 chairs are included in the rental fee. A+++ You have to have your wedding here!
