I was the DJ tonight for a wedding at the Palmer House and I have to say, this place is gorgeous. The rustic look or brick/stone walls and wooden pillars make this venue stand out!about the place:This venue has two floors, the main floor where the main reception is at, and the basement where food, bar, and dance floor is normally set up at. This is perfect for intimate and small weddings. the main floor can hold up to about 00 guests comfortably (I think) comfortably. If you have a guest count of about 100 to 120, the rest of your guests can stay downstairs, then the tables can be removed for the formal dances. about the staff:Al is a very nice guy who does his best to work with everyone. i love his laid back personality.

My daughter got married at Palmer House Stable on 07/13/19. We couldn't asked for a better place to hold a wedding. Al was great to work with and all the guest were very impressed with the venue. We had the whole place for the weekend and it made it really nice to get ready for a day a father will never forget. I highly recommend Palmer House Stables for your next event. More...

Just had a beautiful wedding experience with Palmer House Stable! Very nice venue and Al is very easy to work with. Recommend for anyone but especially the LGBTQ community.
An incredible space that is perfect for small events. And Al is so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this venue!
Beautiful location for cozy events
I booked the Palmer House for our wedding on November 10th. Al did a great job from the very first day. Showing the venue, answering ALL of our questions, and being in touch with any issues we could think of after booking. He always replied promptly, efficiently, and most importantly, in great spirit. The day of, he was extremely helpful and made sure the place looked its best. I cannot recommend this place enough. Not only it is a beautiful venue for any event, but Al makes it easier! More...
Very nice place. Great venue and multiple areas inside and outside that can be utilized for your event. Staff was very helpful and professional!
Absolutely beautiful facility. Al Wells will make sure your experience with his venue is perfect. 5 stars doesn't even begin to do this place justice.
We had our wedding at Palmer House Stable in October 2018 with 180 guests. Everything went perfectly! Al was great to work with all the way through the process! We used the stable for the entire weekend, including rehearsal on Friday, getting ready on Saturday morning in the loft, married on the patio under a tent, and the reception inside. It was great to relax and finish cleaning Sunday morning. We would highly recommend this venue! More...
Beautiful venue. The wedding was outside on the patio. They had a dinner upstairs and dancing downstairs. Not a huge place but perfect for a smaller wedding (100 or less).

Beautiful building friendly owner
Beautiful venue! The owner was helpful and easy to work with. It was the perfect place for my daughter's wedding.
I would highly recommend this place for a wedding! Al was so great to work with and extremely accommodating. We had such a fabulous experience, and everyone commented on how nice and smooth our event went.Some of our favorite things were: that everything was included, we weren’t forced to choose a certain vendor (especially a caterer), the layout worked perfectly, we didn’t need to be out and cleaned up until Sunday, and the getting ready suite and the lofts were perfect!The Palmer House Stable is gorgeous, and the price was definitely worth it!

Al was amazing. Every part of Palmer House Stables in stunning. Every inch of the building is beautiful. Me and everyone that visited was in complete AWE of the detail, history, and beauty.

Really great place to have a wedding!
This venue was so great for hosting a bridal shower, we used just the first floor room and there was plenty of space. The owner offers many packages for weddings and bachelorette weekends. A great rustic look, if you need a space to host anything I highly recommend it More...

This place is so beautiful. Al is so great. I heard nothing but great things about the venue from everyone who attended our event.
This is such a gorgeous venue, and there is everything you need to host an incredible event! Absolutely beautiful, and easy to work with, too. Highly recommend!
This is a beautifully rustic, welcoming and flexible venue! We held a fun "moms night out" at Palmer House Stable and it was the perfect space to entertain -- the wonderful to have the ability to bring your own food/drinks in, Al was great to work with and the bon fire area is just SO unique! We loved it all!
Thanks to Al for allowing us to host our daughter's wedding at Palmer House. The venue is beautiful, and everything went so well. Al, you were so helpful and gracious, fulfilling every request we made with a smile. We had so many compliments on the wedding. Thanks again for helping to make this a once in a lifetime memory!

Grace Community Church staff and families had a wonderful day-long event at Palmer House Stable in September - Al was beyond accommodating to help with every detail throughout the day and evening (even fabricating marshmallow roasting sticks for the kids)! We all had a great time and will be back soon! More...
We had a fantastic experience hosting our wedding reception at The Palmer House Stable and received so many great compliments on the venue. Thanks to Al for having such a great location for us to host such a memorable occasion! More...
I held my wedding ceremony and reception here. It was a wonderful venue and Al was great to work with!
Al was very quick to respond to our messages! He was fantastic to work with and really helped us out! We got some great pictures at the Palmer House thanks to Al!
I planned my sorority's formal here in December and it was absolutely fantastic! Working with Al was such a pleasure. He made sure everything was perfect and really went the extra mile to make the event special for all of the women and their dates. The venue is beautiful and is so fun to explore. He connected us with Ruzicka's Catering and people wouldn't stop raving about the food. The best part was that there was so much to do since there was a tent outside with lights and a fire pit that people could warm up by with blankets that Al got for us. We even got the coolest banner that everyone took pictures with! I would highly recommend booking an event here, it is so worth it and you'll really enjoy it! Thank you again, Al!! :) More...
Our wedding at the Palmer House was PERFECT!!!!!!!!!

Al is incredibly easy to work with! The venue is absolutely beautiful and affordable!
Al Wells has done a fantastic job restoring this beautiful building and putting it to use as a unique rustic event space in Solon, IA. It is an all occasion venue with options for a few hours or a few days, with it's own overnight loft condo. And outdoor space too. Al will get back to you in a timely manner, give him a call to schedule a tour at 319-400-2908. More...

We can't say enough wonderful things about the Palmer House. My daughter and her fiancé chose this venue for their winter themed wedding and reception. The space was beautifully rustic! We held the ceremony upstairs, and then moved our guests downstairs for cocktail hour while Al and Angie set up the reception space. They were terrific to work with. We couldn't have imagined a more charming location, and will have many lovely memories for years to come. More...
Great place for my niece's graduation party! It was a wonderful combination of elegance and rusticness all at the same time, which made it comfortable for family and friends.
