Just 2.5 hours from Boston are 18 unique cottages spanning the 113-acres of Winvian Farm in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut. The 5-Diamond Relais and Chateau Property prides itself on one-of-a-kind experiences down to the vessel you’ll relax in during your trip. One “cottage” in particular caught our attention, and that’s the 35-foot ascended Winvian Farm Treehouse tucked away in the serene forest on the farm’s property.
Winvian Farm writes of this “intimate cottage resort set high in the trees:”
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 a jetted soaking tub. The second floor lounge has a gas fireplace, a full bar and grand, treetop views of the New England forest below.
The treehouse features a standing patio to wake up to the fresh forest views and make friends with the birds on branches just feet from your windows. The cozy hideaway offers occupancy for 2 adults and children and starts at $999 for mid-week stays or $1,199 a night for high season on fall weekends.
Winvian Farm also offers other whimsical rooms like a a fully restored 1968 Sikorsky HH-3F Pelican helicopter! The other 16 cottages fare more like a classic vacation house, but there is nothing common about them.
The “Music Cottage” features marimba screens on the patio and outdoor chimes, drums and gongs invite guests to play to their heart’s content. Bond fans should stay in the “Secret Society” cottage which looks more like a spy lair on the outside with a dark pillared exterior that contrasts beautifully with the homey interior.
Spies, musicians, and adventurers alike are encouraged to check out the other amenities at the property like the full-service spa, yoga classes, farm-to-table dining, complimentary bikes, and a luscious pool.
