Connecticut Resort Finds Its Mojo Baby, Yeah!
The Winvian Resort in Litchfield, Conn., expected to open later this month, is taking Themed Suites to a whole new level.
Guests can choose to stay in a restored 1968 Sikorsky Sea King helicopter/cottage, that the NY Times describes as:
so tricked out that Austin Powers might have piloted it. That's a 17,000-pound mix of the plush and the industrial, of chilled Champagne and crystal waiting atop a stainless-steel fridge alongside an aerospace dashboard.
Or you can be more earthy and hang out in the either the Beaver Lodge or the Treehouse cottages. All in all the resort will have 18 cottages designed by 15 architects.
The soft-opening phase is expected to start on Nov. 15 with an official opening on Jan. 1. But unlike those themed hotels in the Midwest, spending a night at the Winvian will cost you about $2,000 a night. On the bright side, that includes food and drinks.
