See what's growing in the greenhouses! Chef and the culinary team have started planting and growing seeds for the outside gardens. Planting seeds requires great patience and care and a good deal of organization. We certainly look forward to seeing how each and every one of these tiny plants matures.

We were there for our 25th wedding anniversary. Stayed in the Woodlands cottage. Ate dinner in the restaurant. Every aspect of the experience was top notch. Prices reflect that.

We just had my daughters wedding here, and it could not have been better. The property was beautiful, the staff were professional and friendly and anticipated your every need. The cottages were different, cozy and just fun. It was the perfect weekend.

my wife and I were given a gift of a day there by my chilren for a special b-day. What an experience, the place is unique in that each cottage has it's own charm the staff was very friendly and accomidating, the diner was not to be believed, two of us had the duck and had to pass it around the table for a tasting it was so good. There were 8 of us at the table and everyone enjoyed their meal. The portions were more than adaquet. the massage the next day was wonderful the studio ws spotless and the atmosphere quiet and peacefull. It is pricey but what the hell, yoiu work all year to be able to live well and enjoy moments like this. I never go on vacation to save money and they don't have pockets in the shroud when you go out.

A most amazingly decadent and pristine resort. The cottages are uniquely decorated, one of a kind and luxurious. If you have kids, stay in the Helicopter cottage, they will never forget it. If your planning a romantic getaway, Charter Oak cottage or Stable cottage are perfect. There is lots to do in the area, from walking/hiking trails to amysement & wildlife parks, museums, the most antique shops in the country and plenty of excellent restaurants if you want to switch things up during an extended stay. Food is very good, service- not so much. They seem to hire mostly kids, while 2 waiters are over 22 years old (and are excellent at what they do, knowledgable, pleasant, they do their job superbly). However, if you are not lucky enough to have Ben or Walter as your waiter, don't keep your expectations high. Most of them are sloppy, unsophisticated, slow and forgetful. I've talked with several wait staff members and Sadly, the Winvian wait staff average employment is about 2 months. The reason for this is the way they pay gratuities, monthly/pooled. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, however, the management decided to have a point system for tips, basically the wait staff (when starting) makes about 25 dollars a day in tips instead of 2-300 @ 18%. Need I say more? It is sad that a AAA ~ 5 Diamond Resort, withholds about 90% of tips from wait staff. You would think, especially a place of this caliber, they would want to get 110% out of its employees, and long term employment, So guests are nothing short of ecstatic. It seems like common sense, give your wait staff 100% of tips so you get 110% out of them. Some brilliant person ( I assume the General Manager) decided to skim money from tips, which I don't understand. As a customer, I would like to see the same faces every time We go, instead, every time we go its like training day at a diner. When you do stay at Winvian, keep this in mind, Breakfast is included, however the breakfast servers do not get tipped, so if you do get good service, slip your server a tip. Head Chef Chris Eddy, an amazing talent, however, I have seen him interact with wait staff, luckily his skills in the kitchen out weigh his belligerent disrespectful attitude toward wait staff members, he is also known to have had people fired because he had a personal issue with them. This is an honest and truthful review with both positive and negative aspects. All in all, I give them an 8 out of 10. Check my other reviews for an honest opinion. I have 25 years experience in the business and a culinary arts graduate, with minor in hotel/rest. Management.

Response from the owner - 2 years ago
I am Win Smith, son of our owner & Proprietor, Maggie Smith and the Director of Sales & Marketing for Winvian. While I initially enjoyed reading most of this review I can honestly say that the there are many errors and you actually are performing LIBEL here with the claims about tips not being distributed, payments to teammates, Chef's interaction skills, etc. Our restaurant staff is very consistent with not only service but tenure so I am bit confused as to where these "facts" are coming from. We are aware of who you are and your past employment here. I will ask that you tread lightly and keep perspective, as this is not an appropriate way to express your emotions after your employment here ended. I have no problem if you want to address me personally, my email is wsmith@winvian.com and my direct dial is (860) 393-3036. I welcome any conversation and I would never expose anything publically about you, our guests, etc. I am mostly saddened and disappointed that you feel the need to lash out like this and try to bash my teammates and property in such an anonymous and callous way.
