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.
