The Best Connecticut Getaway
Couldn’t you use a vacation—a safe, socially distanced, not-too-much-ground-covered kind of vacation—right about now?
It’s been a trying year, to put it mildly, and many of us are feeling cooped up, restless, stressed-out, and in need of some honest-to-goodness R&R—not to mention a change of scenery. Here at Winvian Farm, we offer the perfect setting for a responsible getaway in this pandemic era of ours—a mere two hours from New York City!
A Luxurious, Socially Distanced Escape to the Litchfield Hills at Winvian
As it happens, our luxury resort in the pastoral haven of northwestern Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills is inherently well set up for a vacation during this historically challenging time. With 18 winsome and wonderful cottages scattered across 113 acres of meadows and woods, our property lends itself perfectly to social distancing.
From Beaver Lodge to Library, from Treehouse to Helicopter, from Woodlands to Connecticut Yankee, each of our Winvian cottages is unique, featuring imaginative and one-of-a-kind designs that deepen your sense of pampered immersion and sanctuary. You couldn’t ask for a more well-appointed, unforgettably arranged private retreat: just the ticket after months of navigating the challenges and strangeness of pandemic living back home.
You’ll be able to enjoy the perennial joys of our Litchfield Hills resort—from hiking trails to the seasonal deliciousness of Winvian Farm Executive Chef Chris Eddy’s farm-to-fork cuisine—while staying safe and following responsible COVID-19 guidelines, what we call Pure Winvian.
Many have been taking advantage of Winvian’s close proximity to greater New York City and other major metropolitan areas this summer, relishing the peace, quiet, luxury amenities, and outdoor recreation and sightseeing we offer in our rustic (but lavish) spread. Indeed, the past few months have been the busiest we’ve seen in our 13 years of operation!
Recent Winvian Farm Press
You needn’t simply take our word for the much-needed rejuvenation and serenity we offer here at Winvian. We’re honored to have received some glowing press lately extolling our resort as an easy-to-reach vacation destination. Thrillist, for example, ranked us as the “Most Luxurious Getaway” on its roundup of “The Best Weekend Getaways Within Five Hours of New York City” last month, singling out the charm of our cottages and the delights of our swimming pool, restaurant, complimentary bikes, proximity to the trails of the White Memorial Nature Preserve, and concierge activities such as horseback riding and hot-air ballooning. “When you pass through the white gates of Winvian,” Lauren Matison writes in the article, “revel in the feeling that you’ve done something right in your life.”
Meanwhile, Sara Holzman included Winvian Farm in Marie Claire’s recent list of “The Best Weekend Trips to Take From New York City.” She wrote in praise of our accommodations as well as Chef Eddy’s outstanding cookery.
We hope you’ll consider Winvian Farm for a safe and convenient luxury idyll this summer and fall. If you have any questions about our COVID-19 precautions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you to the warm, serene embrace of the Litchfield Hills! You deserve it.
