Just a short drive from our Waterbury headquarters, Winvian Farm and Mayflower Inn & Spa provide quiet New England charm. Set on 113 acres, Winvian Farm offers cottages set against a backdrop of woods and lakes to lull you into relaxation. You might not want to leave the room, but the lure of five-diamond dining is too powerful to resist. Mayflower Inn’s grounds take up 58 acres of woodland and gardens. The idyllic Litchfield Fields and soothing spa treatments will melt your cares away.


Not to be outdone, Twin Farms occupies more than 300 acres of forest, meadows and ponds. Feel free to explore on your own or take a guided tour. In any season, there’s no end to the activities. Winter is particularly good for skiing — cross-country or downhill — and sledding. The sister property to Winvian Farm, Pitcher Inn s a boutique property just minutes from some of the best ski slopes in the Northeast. Each room is beautifully and dutifully appointed to fit its unique theme.

The coast

Rhode Island’s Ocean House in Watch Hill is famed for its beach, and rightfully so, as the wide stretch of sand is a fixture of many happy memories. When winter’s chill sets in, it’s a great place to sit by the fire and watch the waves roll in. Cape Elizabeth, Maine’s, Cliff House has a more rugged setting, as the Atlantic crashes against the rocks surrounding the resort. The great outdoors are at your fingertips, whether you’re kayaking, snowshoeing or lobstering.

The Berkshires

Canyon Ranch is practically synonymous with wellness, and its Lenox resort lives up to the reputation. Energizing activities combine with healthful cuisine and spa treatments to transform your body and mind. Programs can be as intense or laid-back as you like. Just a couple miles down the road, Blantyre covers 110 acres of lush Berkshires greenery with a lavish Tudor-style mansion anchoring the estate. The mansion shines in all seasons, decorated for festivities to mark the big occasions throughout the year.

The city

The Boston Harbor Hotel’s 60-foot stone archway welcomes guests to the mix of history and modernity that symbolizes New England’s largest city. Use it as a jumping off point for the Freedom Trail, a night at the Pops or taking in sporting event. At Hudson Yards, New York’s newest landmark, is Equinox Hotel, New York’s newest luxury lodging. Take in all the sights and sounds the city has on display before retreating to your home away from home on the New West Side.
