Winvian Farm Things to Do & Local Events in the Litchfield Hills of  Connecticut

Location, location, location. Fortunately, we have all three. Tucked into the idyllic northwest corner of Connecticut, just over two hours from Boston and New York, Winvian Farm is surrounded by the largest nature and wildlife sanctuary in the state, and you can walk right from your cottage onto miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The storied Housatonic River has flyfishing and whitewater rafting, and nearby is Connecticut’s largest natural lake, Bantam Lake, best enjoyed from a canoe or kayak. Get a panoramic view of the Litchfield Hills from a hot air balloon, or spend the day at the Skip Barber Racing School, where you can put the pedal to the metal at Lime Rock Park. And the classic Connecticut village of Litchfield is a destination itself, with year-round local events, theater, arts and antiques.
