This tranquil destination wellness retreat and stylishly decorated 19th-century country house hotel is set amid 58 acres of manicured gardens in a Litchfield County village two hours from New York City. The 30 sumptuous accommodations occupy four elegantly restored buildings, with many offering gas fireplaces, antique four-poster beds and oversize marble baths. Renovated by designer Celerie Kemble, the hotel features fresh and imaginative interiors that showcase a bright and contemporary look with colorful murals. Vibrant public areas include an inviting restaurant, the relaxed Tap Room bar and a library. The property also encompasses a splendid 20,000-square-foot spa with an indoor pool, an outdoor pool (heated May through October), a putting green, tennis courts, a seasonal kids’ camp and several exercise studios. More than 20 complimentary fitness classes are offered each week.
The atmosphere of seclusion and rural serenity; the cheerful and obliging staff; the spectacular spa complex; the ideal location from which to explore the Litchfield Hills.
Lower room categories are not particularly spacious, despite being quite expensive.

The nearest major airport is Hartford’s Bradley International, from where you can be picked up in one of the property’s Land Rovers.
