The property includes our stone guest house with 2 bedrooms, a bath and a living room with a massive stone fireplace. Dawn has a furniture restoration business and Ken has been in real estate sales for over 40 years. We love country antiques and decorating with a vintage style. Ken is involved with the local historical society and has served on the town Economic Development Commission for over 10 years. Please see our Guidebook for many ideas of what you can do when you stay with us.

Why Ken Kuhl chose North Granby

Located in an area with breathtaking views of Massachusetts (walk just a little more than a half mile to the amazing Mary Edwards Property), this area Connecticut is known for its working dairy farms, apple orchards, farm wineries and is a horse loving community. Our beautiful community also offers self-serve farm stands, homemade ice cream stores, country libraries as well as upscale evening dining and art galleries. Windy Top is in the heart of Connecticut's best private boarding schools. 7 of the top schools in Connecticut are located within 20 miles of the cottage. These schools include...

My friend and I really needed a moms weekend and rented Windy top this past weekend. What a beautiful, storybook type place it is! The hosts, Ken and Dawn were extremely accommodating and we were so thankful for their generosity. There is a coffee maker, Kuerig, and plenty of snacks in the small kitchen area. There is a fridge as well. The little touches around the cottage were charming such as the question and answer book on the coffee table, the books found in the nooks and crannies tied with lace. The hot water and shower pressure were amazing, better than my house. There was plenty of information left in the cottage regarding the surrounding area and everything we wanted to do was within 10 minutes of the cottage. I am coming back as soon as I can with my husband.
Charming cottage in great location
Dawn and Ken's cottage is a one of a kind, truly special place. Lots of special touches and welcoming hosts. You can't wrong!
This truly was my Happy Place! I felt like I was living in a fairy tale. It was such a privelege to be there! From the small details, the ever present fireplace privilege, the over all stone surroundings of the walls, the hand painted furniture and awesome decorations made it such a warm and welcoming place to be. Ken and Dawn were extremely helpful and gracious the entire stay. Thank you for opening your home to give joy to others. This was an outstanding experience for me!
Super cozy cottage!
My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful stay! The cottage is clean and very well decorated. The shower had a great water pressure, and there are plenty of extra toiletries in case you forgot anything.
Ken and Dawn provided plenty of snacks (chips, granola bars, etc) and drinks--loved the candy bar! Also, on our last night, Ken built us the perfect fire. He also provided us with supplies to make s'mores. It was so difficult to leave!
The cottage is located near plenty of nature trails and some great farms. I highly recommend checking out Sweet Wind Farm for maple syrup and Sweet Pea Farms (Hayes) for some great goat cheese. There are also TONS of suggestions provided in the very helpful guide.
We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time. The owners were so friendly and the cottage was lovely. A real relaxing time away.
Fairy tale cottage
