Lagniappe Place ("Lan-Yap") -

Vineyard and Guesthouse in Grafton

 “A Little Something Extra”

Lagniappe Place is the newest guesthouse in scenic Jersey County, Illinois. Situated on four acres of rolling hills near Grafton, Lagniappe Place welcomes guests to a serene landscape adjacent to the new Grafton Vineyard and Winery and Eckert’s Orchard.
“Lagniappe” is a French word popular in the South that means “a little something extra.” Owners Joe and Leisa Soer chose the name because it reflects the beyond-the-ordinary experience they have created.
Their guests will enjoy:
  • Wine-and-cheese happy hours on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • A continental breakfast and evening snack.
  • A fully stocked kitchen for the guests to cook in if they so desire.
  • Wine glasses, frosted beer mugs, drink ware.
  • Keurig coffee and microwave popcorn available 24/7.
  • Games, books and DVD’s.

  • Patio features patio table and fire table.
  • Guests have access to iron and ironing board.

Guests may reserve the entire three-bedroom, 1,694-square-foot house or a single bedroom. In keeping with the vineyard theme, the Soers named the bedrooms after grapes they will grow – Chardonel, Chambourcin, and Norton. Each bedroom includes a sitting area and private bath. The guesthouse has been renovated and redecorated throughout and includes the full kitchen, dining room, and a living room with a television.
