We enjoyed a peaceful stay at the Pratt Smith House. The house is filled with all sorts of interesting collections, and has been nicely maintained for the antiquity of the house. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Alan and Anne were very friendly, hospitable hosts, and the breakfast was delicious. Great place to stay for a very reasonable price.

We needed a simple overnight stay and the Pratt Smith house was the perfect fit. Though "north" of Utica, it really is in Utica and was only 20 minutes from Hamilton College. The breakfast was exceptional and a great value. We had a need to store somethings in a freezer and fridge overnight and they accommodated us without a problem. Anne, Allan and Emily, thanks much!

I stayed at this B&B for three nights. The service and breakfast was outstanding. Each morning was a different breakfast with many items being served. It is only $75 a night and well worth the value. The only ding I would give this place is it needed a more comfortable bed.

We fled the path of Hurricane Irene to shelter in the Mohawk Valley. The lovely farms and old parts of Utica will transport you back in time. When you stay in this 200-year-old house, the history of Pratt Smith and his family will seep into your bones. Anne has applied her charm and personality to every corner. She is a wonderful cook, and our breakfasts were delightful. We asked our hosts for advice on restaurants, museums, and activities, and they were most helpful. After two days, we left feeling relaxed and ready to re-enter the 21st century.
