I had an absolutely amazing time at the Winvian Hotel. We rented the treehouse and I loved its cozy warmth. It has 2 floors both with a fireplace, there was a steam room and a huge jacuzzi, everything was designed to give you a feeling of wooden house. It's one of the most romantic places we have been to. During the day you can ride a bike (which is available at every cottage for guests) and see the beauty of the natural preserve. We were there during the fall so we had the opportunity to see the bursting colors of foliage. I highly recommended to visit this lovely place.

Winvian could not be better. The Library suite was great, the restaurant was great, the gardens were amazing and the large number of activities from horse back riding to ballooning to walking trails make this a must stop destination. With the new Tesla charging station it will be our once-a-year retreat.

This place is awesome. I stayed here for a wedding in one of the cabins. It's exactly what you think Connecticut should look like, only more so."The restaurant at Winvian is truly extraordinary - also at the same price level. However, if you want a dinner that is memorable, this is the place to go. The 3 course prix fixe menu is USD 85. Portions are not huge yet are filling. In addition, you receive a mini appetizer, pre-dessert, and some wonderful after dessert tidbits that are delicious. There is not a bad table in this entire restaurant. Tables are large, spaced apart so you dont feel crowded. If you have the bucks, you can stay at any of the themed cottages which are exquisite. (I didnt go in, only saw the pictures). I suggest taking a tour during the day to see the place.Staff is extremely friendly and professional. Menu items that we had last night included rib eye steak, Mahi Mahi, roasted root vegetable salad, beet salad. Current menu is not online. Whether youre a seafood or meat eater, youll be fine. There are also sufficient choices for vegetarians. This restaurant definitely shows you how the 1% dine. Litchfield county is a beautiful place to visit any season of the year.

My wife and I were given a gift of a day there by my chilren for a special birthday. What an experience. The place is unique that each cottage has its own charm. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The dinner was not to be believed, two of us had the duck and had to pass it around the table for a tasting. It was so good. There were 8 of us at the table and everyone enjoyed their meal. The portions were more than adequate.The massage on the next day was wonderful. The studio was spotless and the atmosphere quiet and peaceful. It is pricey but what the hell, you work all year to be able to live well and enjoy moments like this. I never go on vacation to save money and they don't have pockets in the shroud when you go out.
