TripsyGypsy Kirsten Woodward at Helicopter Cottage, Winvian Farm Hotel and Spa

Luxury Themed Farm Spa Hotel Serves Up Flights of Fancy

Aviation addict? Park a full-sized authentic Coast Guard helicopter in the middle of your sleeping quarters for a flightless fix!

  • Location: Two hours north of New York City in Morris, CT, Winvian Farm offers a full spa experience plus AAA Five Diamond Dining incorporating fresh produce grown on-site.
  • Amenities: Your own private luxury, themed cottage with screened porch; jetted soaking tub; rainfall steam shower; fireplace; complimentary gourmet breakfast (a $70 value); seed to table gourmet dining (open to the public); room service; sauna; sound therapy; private yoga; and pool. Bicycles provided with each cottage.
  • Tripsy Gypsy’s Musings: There is a fully restored 1968 Sikorsky HH-3F Pelican Coast Guard helicopter stationed in the center of the cottage, with its rotor blades embedded in the ceiling. Step inside to experience the original pilot and co-pilot seats, switches, and gauges aside a “mod” sofa and flat screen TV. Take your cocktails to the cockpit, or watch a film in the fuselage. Everything about the entire farm reeks of luxury. The beds are like sleeping on clouds, the steam rain shower is divine, but — most of all — the food is beyond compare. I opted to have room service rather than eat in the dining room. The menu changes regularly, but my mouth was in utter heaven with every bite. And I got to enjoy it in front of my live fireplace. It was also pleasurable to grab the bike provided with the cottage and explore the expansive grounds, which include a treehouse cottage, among others. I did not explore the town of Morris, as I felt like the farm was an experience in and of itself.
  • Cost: $$$$.
