“As we’re constantly chasing our kiddos around and running back and forth to soccer and ballet, my husband and I wanted a weekend away on our own at a relaxing place nearby where we wouldn’t have to lift a finger. That is exactly what we found at Twin Farms in Vermont. The place can best be described as a summer camp for adults (children are only welcome during designated family weeks). It felt like we were the only people there, because there are so few rooms (20) for so much space (300+ acres).
They truly manage to combine the laid back Vermont aesthetic with a butler sensibility. Prior to arriving, we were asked to fill out an advance questionnaire about food likes, dislikes, and allergies, because the chef makes a special menu every single day. The food was unbelievable and every request is accommodated (I am vegan, and my husband dislikes red meat). Also, the service is above and beyond. My husband once mentioned he would love an iced tea. A staff member quickly returned with a large iced tea pitcher and 2 glasses with ice and lemons and sugars etc. Being there was like going to your weekend home but not having to do anything for yourself but literally sit back and relax. It was a long drive! But we are recommending a stay to our friends.”

Spending time in the great outdoors. Feel like relaxing? Enjoy playing board games or reading by the fire. Feeling adventurous? There’s hiking trails, skiing, canoeing, and any other outdoor activity you can think of, in the most gorgeous setting. We never wanted to go inside!
Your partner. With not many people at the resort, you’ll definitely get a chance to fully enjoy each other’s company.
Stopping on a hiking trail to enjoy a gourmet picnic basket and champagne. I can’t think of a more perfect setting to delight in one of Chef Rich’s inventive creations, and top a gorgeous meal off with s’mores!

We went in the fall right as the leaves had changed, and it was absolutely gorgeous. The perfect weather to cozy up by the campfire under a blanket.
