Overview

About the property

Vineyard Views, Bright & Cheerful Rooms, Totally Private Space, Great Wine!

The Loft @ Lost Acres is a wonderfully private, rural getaway! This bright and comfortable space is located on the upper floor of the Lost Acres Vineyard service barn. Originally intended for the caretaker, the owners have decided to offer it to the public to enjoy the beauty of the vines & the stunning rural scenery of North Granby. Come to enjoy over 65 acres of farmland, trails & wooded pathways. Oh, and stop by the tasting barn, the wine is AMAZING!

The Loft @ Lost Acres is a modern space located above a farm winery barn. It includes a Kitchen (fully equipped), a Living Room, the Dining area, two Bedrooms and a full Bath. There is a convenient stacked washer & dryer down the hall. The beautiful Maple hardwood floors run throughout the entire space with nine-foot ceilings in most areas and lots of windows that create a bright, cheery environment. Space is furnished with vintage furniture, cozy beds, and comfortable seating.

Guests will be able to use the entire upper floor of the building (over 1000 sq. ft.) and an exterior seating area located out on the lawn. You will enjoy views of the vineyard and the surrounding farms. Enjoy the views of the horses but please do not approach them. :)

Amenities include freshly laundered, soft cotton bedding and towels, hypoallergenic or goose down pillows. The bath has an ample supply of bar soaps, shampoos, a hair dryer and a first aid box.

The spaces are accessorized with framed artwork from local artists, mirrors, clocks and decorative items of interest. We offer a quiet, relaxing experience with smart TV, good wifi internet access and lots of books, old magazines, and games to enjoy a special time with friends or loved ones.

The Kitchen is equipped with stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave and a wine cooler. The cooler is stocked with wine which can be purchased upon request.

The Lost Acres Vineyard was awarded #3 best wine in Connecticut in 2017! The tasting barn is just steps away (Friday thru Sunday) and offers all the amenities of a great Connecticut Farm Winery.

Booking events and parties after 6:00 PM is always possible if reservations are confirmed with vineyard owners.

Our goal is to leave you to enjoy the loft and all the surrounding amenities and beauty at your leisure. We live nearby so we are always available by text or cell phone. We provide a complete list of emergency numbers in the unlikely event that you would need these services.

The Loft @ Lost Acres is located in the heart of Connecticut's best private boarding schools. 7 of the top schools in Connecticut are located within 20 miles of the property. These schools include... Ethel Walker and Westminster Schools in Simsbury; Suffield Academy and Loomis-Chaffee Schools; Miss Porter's in Farmington, Kingswood-Oxford in West Hartford and Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Connecticut.

In the 1700's Lost Acres was a political no-man's land known as "the Wedge." In the early 1800's, the Wedge's free-spirited, independent-minded, cider distilling hill farmers populated the area. Lost Acres Vineyard reclaimed this land which now contributes to the agricultural spirit and the natural beauty of Granby. The street is a designated Scenic Road with huge old oak trees, old stone walls and is a local favorite for biking, jogging and walking. Our beautiful community also offers self-serve farm stands, homemade ice cream stores, country libraries as well as upscale evening dining and art galleries. Located in an area with breathtaking views and just minutes from the best waterfalls in Connecticut! The property is surrounded by thousands of acres of hiking and walking trails, a game refuge and state forests.

See our local guidebook for more details.

Bradley International Airport is just 12 miles from The LOFT. The Hartford Union Station is 20 miles away. Please contact the owners if Uber service is required.

Why Ken Kuhl chose Granby

The Lost Acres Vineyard is one of the premier farm wineries in the State of Connecticut. In 2017 it was voted the 3rd best in the entire state. The grounds are beautiful with a bucolic rural feel. The entire property has over 65 acres and besides the vineyard, there are hiking trails and opportunities to cross country ski in the offseason. Weekend guests will be able to enjoy sampling wine, enjoying light food selections, art exhibits, and live music.

What makes this guest house unique

Located on an official Town of Granby Scenic Road, the street is perfect for jogging, walking or biking. The guest unit is set apart from the tasting barn and is very quiet and extremely private. The owners keep a few of their horses in another barn to the rear of the guest house.

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying here. The loft itself was absolutely adorable and everything was very clean and comfortable! Ken was so nice and helpful and even went out of his way to make sure we had everything we might need. I also recommend going next door for a tasting and grabbing a couple bottles to relax with outside. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Jenna and her group we're just terrific! They came to the country to experience it and it seemed like they had a great time. They left our space in beautiful condition, were very respectful in every way. I would encourage all owners to accept them readily! We would certainly like to have them back again.

Wines, Vines & Horses

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the "Loft" and just enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The views of the grapes on the vines and seeing the horses, Belle, Grace and Petey, in the pasture was a pleasure. The rental was clean, very comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen and all bathroom amenities. We enjoyed the different wines and the hosts, Kevin and Michelle, were just terrific. Some nice restaurants nearby and we also got in a round of golf.
