Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Loft is on the second floor, overlooking the art gallery of The Volland Store. At night, unless there is an event open to the public, you have the gallery to yourself. Guests tell us it feels like "a night at the museum." The Volland Store is in an official dark zone. The skies are full of stars - and if you plan it right, there is a full moon.

Truly a rural retreat in the heart of the Flint Hills. Coffee is provided, but bring something for breakfast.

The space
The Loft is located in a historic general store that has been re-purposed as an art gallery, an events venue, and a community gathering place. The Volland Store sits in a working landscape midway between two small towns in the heart of the Flint Hills. Coffee is provided, but bring something for breakfast if you’re not inclined to make an eight-mile trek for ham and eggs. A restaurant list and hours of operation will be provided. Sunday options for restaurants are limited.

The best internet reception is in the kitchen on the gallery level or by the front windows of the gallery. Internet is usually adequate for normal use, but not video streaming. Cell service is problematic. U.S. Cellular is the preferred provider in the area, but for other providers, a drive to the top of a nearby hill usually works. You won’t find all the conveniences of an urban environment; you will find something better. Bring your sense of wonder and discovery and a desire for a unique experience.

The Volland Store is a Place for Art and Community. Normal operating hours are 12-5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and there are occasional events that draw a crowd to the Store. Please visit our website (Happenings>Current Happenings) to see the events that may be occurring during your stay. You are welcome to attend any of our events or gatherings!

The Volland Store is located in Mill Creek Valley, one of the most scenic drives through the Flint Hills. The neighborhood is a working landscape of ranches, with a train running through it. The perfect place to unplug and refresh.
