Bottom Line

The Winvian is a romantic, upscale property set on 113 acres of countryside outside tiny Morris. Its 19 individually decorated cottages all have a feel of understated, rustic elegance with the convenience of modern amenities, including Bose surround systems, flat-screen TVs, and Nespresso coffeemakers. All units have working fireplaces, large bathrooms with separate walk-in showers and jetted tubs, and unique, mind-blowing design features; one cottage has a helicopter shell that doubles as a living room. The outstanding spa and the wonderful restaurant serving a tasty farm-to-table menu are just some of the highlights. But this kind of luxury doesn’t come cheap, and the themed decor might not be to everyone’s taste. Also, it’s very secluded, but that’s probably why most guests are looking to stay here.

Set on 113 acres outside Morris, a tiny village in western Connecticut

Map of Winvian

The Winvian’s location is perfect for those who want to get away from it all. Situated on 113 acres of countryside outside a tiny village in western Connecticut, the estate is quiet, relaxing and secluded. There is a pretty lake a few minutes northwest of the property, and Litchfield Country Club is an easy drive away, too. Bigger towns such as Waterbury and Torrington are just 20 minutes away, and there are several state parks nearby. But most guests who stay here are looking for seclusion. Outdoors activities such as hiking, sailing and golfing are all available in the region.
