About the property

Fully equipped home with 3 bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths (Sleeps up to 7)

Prana Residence-Spa is a holistically designed residence provides total relaxation and the transformation of vital life (Prana).

It is located on five and half acres atop the forested hills of Cornwall Bridge in Litchfield County, Connecticut, less than two hours from Manhattan.

Prana Residence-Spa accommodates 7 guests and features a spacious living/dining room with a dramatic 20-foot high dome ceiling and a signature wood burning fireplace. A fully equipped open kitchen with its stone countered bar looks out into the large yet cozy living room. The residence has three attractive bedrooms, a loft, and three baths. The master bedroom is on the ground floor. A spiral staircase connects the living room to the library/meditation area and the guest bedrooms.

Prana Residence-Spa features a large indoor pool, sauna, deep, cold plunge tub, indoor Jacuzzi, hot tub and solarium, which can be also used as a massage therapy room. The Spa facilities are for exclusive use of Prana Residence--Spa guests. Its unique and inspiring structure has made a significant impact in the building industry and has been frequently written about in national and international publications, such as the New York Times. Additionally, its environmentally LEED chosen materials keep the building cool in the summer (without need for air-conditioning) and toasty warm in the winter (with minimum heating).

The area is known for its diversity of birds, including wild turkeys, which one can often view while sitting in the lounge. Its natural landscaping and large boulders, as well as old trees, attract different wildlife including friendly deer.

At your request and with an advanced booking we can book a variety of services, including professional massage therapy and other spa services, butler, private chef, daily housekeeping and chauffeured car service. We can also recommend and arrange outdoor recreational activities such as horseback riding, and other seasonal activities such as water sports, trout fishing, canoeing on the scenic Housatonic River as well as bird watching at the nearby Audubon Center.

The place is available with advance reservation, with a minimum stay of two days or three days during holidays. The rate is $750 a night plus a $300 cleaning fee, which covers the disinfection of the spa facilities after each guest. Please call 212-534-0727.

Heavenly Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

This was a bit of a gamble for us going into things, but we could not have been more pleased. My wife and I were looking for a place to have our closest friends and family join us after our wedding reception. We were married at the nearby Hopkins Inn and had the pick of the posh Washington CT 5+ BR estates, cozy lake houses and Prana - which we have affectionately come to know as the bubble house :)

We ultimately picked Prana, because just looking at the pictures we decided - Hey, this is like nothing else any of us have ever seen. And we could not have been more right. If you've stayed in a house like Prana, I'd be shocked, but if you have then you know you'll love this place too!

Prana was the perfect place to start our journey together with the love of those that mean the most around us. This is a spa and an all out escape from reality. You walk in and it takes a good 10 minutes to close your jaw from the awe that is inspired by the architecture, design and charm - all of which are equally present in Prana owner, Noushin.

We had our closest friends stay over with us and our family stopped in to provide dinner and brunch the next morning. A minimum of twenty people saw this "house" and each and every one of them was equally amazed.

We made use of every single amenity multiple times. The Sauna and Plunge Pool were a favorite of the guys in the group - and if we can ever afford to do it we will be installing one in our house someday. The women seemed to prefer the outdoor hot tub and time on the hammock. The indoor pool was also extremely enjoyable and our guests loved waking up to fresh coffee and eating breakfast in the solarium.

In all we had six people sleep over and it was extremely comfortable. My wife and I then kicked them out so we could have a day at this residence all to ourselves. We kicked back and enjoyed the amenities and went to a great little restaurant in nearby Kent. We did not want to leave, and Noushin was gracious enough to extend our checkout until 2 PM which was so nice. She also was kind enough to leave us a bottle of champagne for our wedding!

We would not change anything and will be coming back for anniversaries and I won't be surprised if our other friends choose to have their post reception gatherings at Prana.

Will never return!

  • 1 of 5

Terrible experience! The home lost power (the rest of the street was totally fine, this was an issue just with this house). We had to leave the property due to no electricity or heat, and landlord refused to return ANY of our money. And we are still fighting to get our down payment back. Renter beware.

Owner's Response: The issue of electricity was dealt with upon the call from the guest. The electrician was present on New Year's Day and the problem was fixed on the morning of January 2nd, two days before their scheduled departure. Although we offered them two free days for a future visit, they took the issue to small claims court and the judge deemed us not liable.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Prana Residence and Spa and had a great time! We went with kids of various ages and they all loved it. The indoor pool and outdoor hot tub were great. We went skiing at nearby Mohawk Mountain over the weekend, which was fun. Very close to the house, which was convenient. We look forward to going again soon.
