Camping (Exterior View)

Camping captures the serenity and allure of a secluded outdoor campsite without forfeiting any of the sophistication and style of the Winvian resort. The ceiling mimics a cloud dotted sky during the day before transitioning to a star filled night sky in the evening. The king size bed faces faces a floor-to-ceiling tree framed window that offers expansive views into the surrounding woodlands. The cottage also features a screened in porch, complete with adirondack chairs and an outdoor fireplace, the perfect setting for enjoying a glass of wine while toasting marshmallows and basking in the peacefulness of your surroundings.

Another example of the extraordinary accommodations offered at Winivian is Helicopter cottage. Unassuming from the exterior, upon entering the cottage, guests will find a fully restored 1968 Sikorsky HH37 Sea King Pelican helicopter. The aircraft centers the room, with the fireplace, bathroom and bedroom situated in a horseshoe around the copter. The helicopter’s interior has been reconfigured as a bar and entertainment center offering seating in the cockpit and main body of the aircraft. An undoubtedly unique setting.

Due to the wide-ranging themes of the cottages, the resort has the ability to re-invent itself and provide its guests with a completely new and different experience upon each visit, making Winvian truly unique among other luxury properties.
