Went with my sister for a girls spa weekend. The facility is immaculate, beautiful and unique. There are 18 cottages nessled in the woods each with a different architectural theme. Each cottage comes equipped with two trek one gear bikes to be used on property. We stayed at the Maritime which "pays homage to Connecticuts marritime history" It was adorable with lots of beautfull framed paintings of ships and the architecture mimicked a lighthouse. The space was large and had a separate living room, huge modern bath with steam shower and jetted tub and double sinks and a sizeable screen porch perfect for reading. Only negative with the room is there is one large flat screen in the bedroom, none in the living room. Given the cottage style I preferred not having to sit in the bed to watch TV, there should be a smaller TV in the main living space.
The restaurant is fantastic, farm to table absolutley delicious, good size portions,relaxed setting -just wonderful. The spa services were great but the locker room was small, with just one toilet the spa did not have a pool or steamroom and the sauna was co-ed which I really did not like.
At current there are two notable deficiencies an Winvian-no gym and no outdoor (or indoor for that matter pool). Given how beautiful the weather was the Memorial Day weekend laying pool side with a good book would have been a perfect way to spend the afternoon. However, the manager did advise that they expect to break ground on a pool soon.
While we did have a wonderful hike and a great kyak ride (the property provides kayaks) if weather was poor it would be nice to have a gym to utilize.
All told this is 5 star property unlike any other I have experienced. Perfect for couples and friends though we did see some families.
