Individuality comes at a cost, and no expense was spared to achieve the one-of-a-kind design and architecture at Twin Farms. There are the wildly creative interiors imagined by designer Jed Johnson, sleek cottages from architect Peter Bohlin and walls adorned with pieces by David Hockney, Frank Stella, Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein, to name-drop a few.

At the hotel

300 wooded acres, fitness centre, spa, six private downhill ski trails, ice skating rink, tennis courts, croquet, bocce, a library stocked with chess, checkers, puzzles, books and free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TV, iPod dock, tea and coffee service, minibar and Versante bath products.

Our favourite rooms

No matter the suite or cottage, you’ll be whisked away to a fantasy world in the woods: 1930s New York, golden Tuscany, tranquil Japan or the bazaars of Morocco. All rooms are accented with expertly-thrifted antiques and original artwork by the likes of Ed Ruscha and Cy Twombly. However, for the ultimate in seclusion, sneak away to one of the 10 stand-alone cottages. The Aviary is a mod, two-storey stunner of glass, steel and cedar and has a stone hot tub set in front of the fireplace in the sleek bedroom, and trad-leaning guests will fall for the Log Cabin, an authentic 19th century Appalachian home moved to the farm and kitted out with mod cons, of course.


There’s no pool per se, but it’s hard to resist a dip in Cooper Pond on a steamy summer day.


As if the surroundings weren’t relaxing enough, sink even deeper into your laid-back state of bliss with a detoxifying body wrap or signature massage in your suite or at the Bridge House Spa. The spa has two treatment rooms, glass-brick steam rooms and a Japanese furo bath where you can request a private soak for two (swimsuits optional).

Packing tips

Leave the sporting gear behind: fishing rods, tennis racquets, ice skates and snowshoes are all on loan for guests. Also, free same-day laundry service will help you keep luggage down to your favourite weekender bag.


The hotel is completely non-smoking. If you don’t go in for kayaking, cycling, skiing or other outdoor pursuits on offer, a private yoga instructor or personal trainer is available for hire.


Yes, pups are welcome to curl up beside the fire with you for $75 a night. Just let the hotel know when booking. See more pet-friendly hotels in Vermont.


This adults-only retreat only welcomes children during designated family weeks in the winter and summer or as part of special group event.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Reserve the intimate and cave-like wine cellar for a private candlelit dinner a deux.

Dress Code

Think relaxed, yet sporty chic: tweeds and plaids or crisp cottons and linens depending on the season.

Hotel restaurant

Chef Nathan Rich draws inspiration for his changing menus from locally-raised meat and seasonal produce; many of the herbs and vegetables are grown just steps from the kitchen in the chef’s organic garden. Depending on the time of year, you might nibble on poached Maine lobster for lunch or feast on Cavendish quail and ginger apple slaw or thick beef tenderloin with bone marrow butter for dinner. No matter the dish, every meal will be expertly paired with world-class wines from the farm’s cellar (boasting one of the largest private collections in the country). Where you take your meals is entirely up to you: in the rustic, yet elegant Main House dining room, packed up in a hamper for a picnic by the pond or on top of the ski hill or fireside in your suite. 

Hotel bar

Drop by the cosy wood-panelled pub for a pint of local Long Trail Ale as you spin tunes on the jukebox or go in for a friendly game of billiards or darts. 

Last orders

Breakfast is served 7am–10:30am; lunch is available from 12:30pm–1:30pm; dinner is served 6:30pm– 8:00pm. Pop by the pub from 12noon–11pm.

Vermont’s Burlington International Airport ( is 90 minutes from the hotel by car with direct service from many major US airports and connections to international destinations.


You may not want to stray far from the farm once settled in, but a car is handy for exploring natural areas and the quaint towns nearby. There’s free on-site parking for hotel guests and each cottage has a private carport.

Worth getting out of bed for

Nestled on several hundred woodland-thick acres in central Vermont, Twin Farms is a wonderland for nature-lovers in any season. Get your heart racing on mountain-bike ride on the surrounding trails or on a 10-mile cruise to nearby Woodstock. Hike or head out for a run on the property’s miles of groomed trails and hills. Challenge your partner to a game of tennis on the farm’s court. Copper Pond is perfect for a swim or a romantic canoe ride, and it’s fully stocked with fish for anglers, too. In winter, take as many runs as you’d like on one of the six private downhill ski trails or opt to make your way down hill on a toboggan sled. Take to the trails on cross-country skis or snowshoes and work up your appetite for a hot cocoa (or hot toddy) after a few spins around the ice skating rink.

Golfers will want to reserve a tee-time at either the 36-hole Quechee Club golf course or the Robert Trent Jones-designed Woodstock Inn and Resort golf course. Both course are 20-30 minutes from the hotel. 

Snow bunnies desiring to sample local downhill slopes can make their way to the Suicide Six Ski Area in Woodstock. Don’t be put off by the daredevil name; you’ll find 23 groomed trails for every level of skier.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Vermont and unpacked their Long Trail Ale and maple syrup, a full account of their country luxury break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside/postcard from Twin Farms in Vermont…

It’s a tale as old as the hills: boy gets the girl and the girl gets… the farm. Or so it went in 1928 when Nobel Prize-winning author Sinclair Lewis proposed to journalist Dorothy Thompson, who agreed to wed only if his offer was hitched to a farm in Vermont. Not just any white clapboard house punctuated by a rambling red barn either, but a classic 1795 farmhouse set on 300 undulating acres fragrant with pine and and abundance of apple trees.

Over the years the literary couple entertained a revolving door of prominent artists, writers and politicians at their lavish weekend fêtes in the country. The party continues today (and you're invited) thanks to a thoughtful reimagining of this idyllic escape. Inventive interior design, loads of outdoor pursuits, highly-personalised fine dining, a spoiling spa, a pub just for guests and enough artwork to fill a museum.

Who needs another diamond, anyway?
