Finally, summer! A time to slow down a little from the daily hustle. A time to enjoy the slower pace, laid-back days…the outdoors and a much need break from the regular routine. It can be hard to wind down from the everyday. A weekend getaway to Winvian Farm is the key to that summer serenity.

Located in neighboring Litchfield Hills, Winvian Farm is just a short drive to a serene and tranquil experience. This luxury resort and spa, uniquely offers 18 distinct private cottages with stunning forest or meadow views that overlook 113-acres with amenities to indulge and relax. Guests can soak in their oversized tubs or rest in their screened in porch. Each cottage is outfitted with two bikes for casual rides to explore the countryside.

Other activities on and off-site to consider while the downtime starts to set in include private cooking classes, wine and chocolate tastings, hot air balloon rides, local hiking and fly-fishing and of course the greatest way to unwind in the summer - lounging poolside at the resort’s heated pool. 

For the ultimate in relaxation, enjoy the award-winning spa for soothing treatments, healing massages and restorative yoga and fitness classes. This is where self-care and pampering meet. Feel transformed and rejuvenated while sipping your post treatment tea.

Winivian’s onsite full-working farm and greenhouses provide the delicious seed-to-table menus. For fine-dining, the notable The Restaurant is where simplicity and creativity come through with seasonally flavorful cuisine. The elevated, intimate setting compliments the 5-star experience. Maggie’s Tavern, a casual, cozy spot for lunch, has the freshest, most delicious pub fare and craft cocktails.

The perfect place to go to reconnect with your partner, with friends, with nature…with yourself. Enjoy the summer serenity, close enough to home but a world away.
