Set amid 113 acres of meadows and woodlands in Litchfield County, this refined one-of-a-kind property encompasses an 18th-century mansion, plus 19 extraordinary architect-designed cottages, including a log cabin, a treehouse, a library, a stable and a restored 1968 Sikorsky Sea King Pelican helicopter. Rooms have private patios or porches, fireplaces and baths with Jacuzzi tubs. Chef Chris Eddy, who trained under Daniel Boulud and Alain Ducasse, serves "seed-to-table" cuisine complemented by a varied wine list comprising 500 labels from 13 countries and 37 regions at the exceptional restaurant (closed every Tuesday). Ingredients are primarily sourced from the on-site vegetable and herb gardens, greenhouses, fruit trees, root cellar and apiary. The property also has a spa with a 40-foot pool. Nearby White Memorial Conservation Center offers 4,000 serene acres for hiking and horseback riding. Fly-fishing and whitewater rafting excursions on the Housatonic River can also be arranged.
