Giveaway: Weekend at Winvian

Morris, Connecticut
02.14.2011 | by: Meghan

Designtripper is thrilled to offer a weekend getaway to the ultimate countrified escape: the Winvian. Located in the Litchfield area of Connecticut, these playfully luxe cabins are spread across 113 beautiful, wooded acres–and sit directly beside 4,000 more, all accessible for hiking, biking, horseback riding, fly-fishing. Each of the completely unique 18 freestanding cabins is decorated to reflect its loose, kind of quirky theme–like the Beaver Lodge, which features a giant, actual beaver lodge-cum-art-installation hanging above the bed, the Artist Cottage or the Stable. The super-lucky winner will have a six-month window to pick their weekend, so you can cozy up in the Log Cabin this winter or wait until spring and stay in the Treehouse, which is perched between a group of maples. There’s also a spa, restaurant and garden on-site.

We’re leaving the contest open all week. To enter (one entry per person, please), leave a comment below. We’ll close comments this Friday, February 18 at 5pm EST and announce the winner in this space Monday morning. Winners picked at random.

More nitty-gritty: The window of certificate validity ends six months from the date of winning. Black-out dates will apply (holiday weekends, etc.). Valid for two adults only.  The stay will be two nights in a tier 1 or tier 2 cottage with a possible upgrade to a tier 3 cottage based on availability upon arrival. Breakfast daily and one dinner for two also included (excluding wine).

Thanks and good luck!
