Winvian Farm is a luxury resort experience like no other. One hundred thirteen acres of heaven on earth, a lighthearted oasis of peace, comfort and Five-Star Fine Dining in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut, where fires are bright, sleep tranquil, and the mind is free to play. A gracious, 1775 manor stands at the heart of Winvian Farm’s historic estate, while 18 individually-designed resort cottages and the Hadley Suite on the threshold of woodlands and meadows let Winvian’s guests experience the unexpected, a night in a treehouse, a greenhouse or a musical conservatory, a most splendid getaway.
Unique Features: Almost everything served in Winvian Farm’s revered restaurant is grown on the estate in three greenhouses, and three acres of organic gardens. Honey from the apiary, a henhouse, root cellar, and luscious fruit trees round out Winvian Farm’s artfully open-ended menus. Even the dining room bouquets come from Winvian Farm’s heady flower and herb beds.
Accommodations: The luxury accommodations of Winvian Farm are worlds unto themselves, nestled into the surrounding Connecticut woodlands and meadows. Eighteen unique resort cottages and the Hadley Suite were designed by fifteen different architects, each with a story to tell, each a surprise, an escape, a splendid adventure. Winvian Farm is near New York and Boston as well; easy to get to yet hard to leave. Bikes wait by every cottage door for roaming the grounds, or walk the winding paths and awaken the senses in Winvian Farm’s glorious organic gardens.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Treehouse. A Connecticut hideaway suspended 35 feet above the forest floor, Treehouse is a childhood fantasy turned grown-up haven. It’s like climbing into a wonderful, well-kept secret, a place of vivid colors and eclectic angles. The first floor bedroom has a king-sized bed, a gas fireplace, steam shower and Jacuzzi. The second floor lounge has a gas fireplace, a full bar and grand, treetop views of the New England forest below.
Dining: A remarkable experience unfolds each evening in the fire-lit 18th Century dining rooms of Winvian Farm’s renowned Litchfield Hills restaurant, The Restaurant at Winvian Farm, where simplicity and indulgence artfully converge to create the ultimate fine dining experience.
To complement your culinary experience they have created an eclectic selection of wines in the wine cellar, having assembled wines from 13 countries and 37 regions including biodynamic, sustainable and organic.
Activities: All 113 acres are yours to play upon. Cruiser bikes stand at the ready for jaunts around the farm or around town, or enjoy a stroll to the luxury Spa to be pampered and rejuvenated. The woods are lovely, leafy and deep, the lawns and meadows wide, all for hiking or snowshoeing, croquet, volleyball, bocce ball, hot air ballooning, and allow for countless simple pleasures, many within a small radius of Winvian Farm, like fishing, kayaking, canoeing, tennis, golf, and horseback riding.
Spa & Fitness: The Winvian Farm Spa is a realm of tranquility and pampering, a truly transformative experience the moment you step inside the 5,000 square feet of relaxation. This luxury spa is a quiet sanctuary of light and open space for individuals, couples or groups. Trees and sky fill the great arching windows of the Meditation Lounge where everything shimmers with the radiance of the reflecting pool. Guests are invited to bask in the sun lit lounge, relax in the sauna, and sip organic tea. Find you again, relaxed and rejuvenated in mind, body and spirit.
