Top Resorts in New England: Readers’ Choice Awards 2018

We’ve got some exciting news to announce here at the Winvian Farm blog: Our luxurious Litchfield Hills property has earned a high-profile spot in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2018! Winvian Farm landed No. 23 among New England resorts in the ranking, which saw on the order of 430,000 Condé Nast Travelers readers give their two cents about the best travel destinations and experiences all around the world.

We’re grateful to those guests of ours who voted for Winvian Farm in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards, and excited to welcome those who’ve stayed with us before as well as brand-new faces to our tranquil and well-appointed resort here in Northwest Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills this fall and winter!

The Charms of Winvian Farm

Regular guests of ours all have their own favorite element of the Winvian Farm experience, which we think of as the sum of all those individual elements and then something a little extra and magical.

There’s the whimsical charm of our themed guest cottages: from the rustic New England coziness of Beaver Lodge and the intimate, glass-roofed Secret Society to the medieval refuge of Connecticut Yankee and Maritime’s lighthouse ambience. The Hadley Suite complements those one-of-a-kind cottages with a winning blend of historic elegance and modern luxury on the top floor of the 18th-century Seth Bird House.

There’s the high-end, seasonally tuned “seed-to-table” gastronomy of The Restaurant at Winvian Farm, where Executive Chef Chris Eddy’s fine dining facilitates a deep and rewarding celebration of place. The exquisiteness of the menu—which draws heavily from Winvian Farm’s on-site organic gardens, greenhouses, apiary, henhouse, orchard, and root cellar—comes amply complemented by a noteworthy, globe-spanning wine cellar.

And there’s the indulgent perfection of the 5,000-square-foot Winvian Farm Spa, a haven of bliss from the treatment rooms to the sunny Meditation Lounge, and the first-rate spread of event and meeting venues we maintain.

We also offer our guests a rich array of activities, both on our expansive pastoral grounds and in our greater backyard here in the lovely Litchfield Hills. Hike, ski, or snowshoe our beautiful woods and meadows, or take a cooking class right here at the resort for some fabulously fun culinary edification. Or consider a daytrip to such regional attractions as the White Memorial Conservation Center, the Railroad Museum of New England, and the historic Bantan Cinema, not to mention an array of local farms, orchards, and golf courses. Mohawk Mountain and Ski Sundown await your downhill runs just a stone’s throw away.
