Winvian Farm Treehouse in Connecticut
The two goals at Winvian Farm in Litchfield Hills, Conn., about an hour from Hartford, are relaxation and rejuvenation. And the most unique way to achieve both is a stay at the farm’s treehouse. Suspended over 10 metres above the forest floor, the two-story cabin is billed as a “childhood fantasy turned grown-up haven.” The bedroom, complete with gas fireplace and Jacuzzi are on the first, and the second boasts a lounge with a full bar and some pretty incredible treetop views.
Breakfast is served each morning in the Seth Bird annexe, next to the original white clapboard farmhouse that was built in 1775. The Winvian Farm has been in the Smith family for generations, and there’s plenty to explore on the 113-acre property that includes a luxury spa, a wine cellar and organic gardens that supply the produce for the farm-to-table restaurant. Or, you can check out the entire area via bike, kayak or even hot air balloon.
