From upstate B&Bs that smell of musty seniors to hotel pools blithely yellowed by toddlers, weekend getaways are just great. For a retreat that accommodates your style, try Winvian.
A conveniently close CT hinterlands getaway, Win's a 113-acre estate bungalow'd up with a playset-like array of freestanding lodgings, from the Masonic-themed "Secret Society", to the rugged Flinstonery of the boulder-built "Stone". Standout pads include:
Helicopter: A 17,000lb, barn-parked Sikorsky w/ retro-cottaged interior including wet bar, jacuzzi, and queen bed (Jan Michael Vincent, you've come home).
Treehouse: This oak-tree-perched, two-story Ewok aerie's decked out with a surfeit of flat screens, board games, and a fireplace deco'd with license plates obviously jacked from Imperial Speeder Bikes.
Golf: A ranch-style cottage equipped with two sets of clubs and a putting green built into the living room itself, an indoor convenience that strips golf of its chief perk (carts).
Sweetening the deal, Winvian stays include all meals from their Ducasse-trained chef, plus unlimited liquor from two estate bars and the no-fee in-cottage wet bars -- the overzealous drinking of which will lead to besotted senility followed by a blithe yellowing of yourself.
