Tastemakers Guide to Litchfield County, CT

51 Places to shop, stay, eat, do and visit in Litchfield County

“Litchfield County is a magical area of New England that retains all of its small-town authenticity but is also home to sophisticated people, food, arts, and antiques. Who wouldn’t fall under the spell of its rolling hills, farms, and old-growth trees?” So says interior design powerhouse Celerie Kemble who recently oversaw the renovation of the region’s fabled Mayflower Inn & Spa. Welcome to Northwest Connecticut and bucolic Litchfield County! Seemingly plucked from a picture-perfect postcard, Litchfield County plays host to a who’s-who of New Yorkers who seek out the region’s sophisticated rural charm for their weekend retreats. Yes, that was Bunny Williams and Wes Gordon. And, yes, Oscar de la Renta lived over there. Layer in stellar hotel escapes (Winvian Farm), restaurants (Arethusa al tavolo, Community Table), and antiques outposts aplenty, and the mix is absolutely electric. Poke about for the perfect antique table in Sharon or New Preston, celebrate nature (the Appalachian Trail runs through Kent and Salisbury, canoe Bantam Lake), or kick back with a great book from the Hickory Stick Bookshop. Celebrate the best that Litchfield has to offer with finds—from hotels and restaurants to bars, shopping, and antiques—from the folks who really know the region. We will be adding new Tastemakers’ finds regularly, so come back often.
