Cool lodgings

If you're looking for a place to stay in Connecticut, and you love unique surroundings -- and you have a lot of discretionary income -- take a look at the Winvian Inn in Litchfield Hills.

The inn's web site is warm, beautiful and whimsical -- matching the look of inn itself -- and rightfully says "A place like this is difficult to describe."

The Winvian is made up of 18 cottages -- and I use that term loosely. They range from Stone, built of massive boulders, to Helicopter (literally), to Treehouse, which is, yes, a treehouse. A two-story one. I didn't see any "No girls allowed" signs, but there were license plates covering the fireplace. Fireplaces and snowshoes seem to be standard equipment.

If you think you're going to be roughing it, think again. The place is saturated with amenities and appointments.

The next time I have a couple thou to spend on a night's stay in the New York vicinity, I'll be staying there.
