winvian is one of the coolest, most unique venues we have ever encountered. each designer cottage at this boutique resort in connecticut’s litchfield hills is an independently built and themed structure based on something that celebrates The Constitution State. for example, the helicopter cottage is basically a cozy hangar built around a “fully-restored 1968 Sikorsky Sea King Pelican HH3F helicopter”. yes, there is an actual helicopter in the room with you. or…the treehouse cottage which is a “hideaway suspended 35 feet above the forest floor,”– a fabulous hotel room built around the trunk of a huge tree. your own private swiss family robinson.
