SAVOR
Winvian Farm | Morris, Connecticut

Travelers flock to Winvian Farm to experience its 18 whimsical cottages, ranging
from the Library (home to a book-lined,
wraparound mezzanine) to the nature
lover's choice: the 780-square-foot Treehouse, stilted 35 feet above the ground.
"This is no ordinary tree house," says Jack
Ezon, a Virtuoso travel agency executive from New York City. "It's a two-story
suite with a fireplace on each floor, fully
stocked minibar, steam shower, and
Jacuzzi." There are plenty of ways to stay
active at this 113-acre estate, from biking
to canoeing the Bantam River. However,
it's Winvian's commitment to using ultraseasonal ingredients that serves as the
most impressive health highlight. With
its three greenhouses and three acres of
organic gardens, guests needn't look far
to witness the seed-to-table circle at this
Relais & Châteaux property. "The food is
incredible," Ezon raves. "Winvian's chef
forages through the extensive gardens to
design a new menu each day." Doubles
from $695; Virtuoso travelers receive
breakfast daily and a $100 spa credit.
Treehouse cottage from $795.

Clockwise from top: The Yews' stylish design and spacious decks complement its
natural settings, and Winvian Farm's Treehouse cottage.

to reopen in October, following extensive post-hurricane renovations.
