This private resort had tongues wagging the minute it débuted in 2007. The whole place—from 18 whimsical cottages, including a treehouse and a medieval- themed Connecticut Yankee, to the luxe spa—unplugs you from reality. A lot of thought was put into guests’ comfort and style, and that includes plenty of delightful pampering.
