Hopkins Inn Restaurant

A large flagstone terrace overlooking beautiful Lake Waramaug makes for a romantic evening at this Austrian restaurant at the Inn. The wait staff is dressed in traditional Austrian garments, giving the ambiance a festive (or kitschy, depending how you look at it) feel. In cooler weather, you can enjoy your Wiener schnitzel with a glass of wine from the comfort of a Victorian dining room that offers a panoramic view of the lake. They also have a Tavern Room where you can sit by a roaring fire and leisurely sip on a rather satiating Hofbrau Hefe Weizen. The outdoor terrace is the real attraction here because of the beautiful views of the lake.

Hopkins Vineyard

In 1979, Bill and Judith Hopkins transformed their dairy farm into a vineyard, one of the first in what has become a thriving Connecticut industry. Since then, it has consistently produced award-winning whites, reds and sparkling wines. Hopkins Vineyard grows 11 varieties of grapes. Take a tour, sample the wine, and browse in the wine shop. Gorgeous location overlooking Lake Waramaug. Check out their wine festivals, new wine releases, yoga at the vineyard, and live entertainment.
