Winvian. Everything I want out of life.

And I'm not messing around.  Winvian Inn; a luxury (and I mean LUXURY) resort and spa deep in the most beautiful depths of Connecticut.  It consists of a lodge which is a gorgeous iconic New England-style home, 18 individually-themed cottages and 113 acres of stunning.

There is no way to describe how incredible spending even an afternoon at Winvian actually is.  At Christmas, I treated my momma bear to lunch (woah) and her first ever massage (double woah) which took place in a couples room, while a wood fire roared in the corner and we got to enjoy with champagne following the treatment (just shut up).  Today, I was happy to have another lovely day with my newly engaged visitors from London and a tall friend from California.  We had a tour of the spa, which is beyond the realm of peaceful and calm into something other worldly, and then had lunch in the main house.

Please, I beg you, visit the website and check out the interactive map of the land and the cottages.  One is a treehouse, one has a helicopter in it, one has a tree growing through the middle.  AMAZING.  It's expensive, damn expensive, but probably the nicest and most relaxing treat you can give yourself.

Listen to me.  I know best.  Deal with it.
