Twin Farms, an intimate country hideaway, set amidst 300 acres of meadows and woodlands in an unspoiled valley, just 15 minutes north of Woodstock, in Barnard, Vermont, is an ideal retreat for art and design lovers, romantics and gourmets.

The five star Relais & Chateaux Resort provides 20 lovely rooms in 10 freestanding cottages

Originally the home of the writer and Nobel Prize winner Sinclair Lewis, the five star Relais & Chateaux Resort provides 20 lovely rooms in 10 freestanding cottages.

In 1993, Jed Johnson, interior designer and friend of the famous artist Andy Warhol, designed 15 rooms, before Peter Bohlin and interior designer Thad Hayes completed the rest in 2005. A special combination of American folk and contemporary art gives Twin Farms its special charm. Decorative ceramics are mixed with originals by Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and David Hockney, among others, while fine woodwork made of maple and pine relate with modern sculptures.

Gourmets will appreciate the elegant and authentic cuisine at The Main House restaurant. Chef Nathan Rich’s dishes reflect the seasons and are prepared with ingredients from the garden or from the nearby region. The wine cellar, consisting of 26,000 bottles of fine wine of international origin, completes the taste experience. Nathan Rich was honored last year as one of the world’s only three chefs with the award “Relais & Chateaux Rising Chef Trophy 2013”.

At the “Spa at Twin Farms,” guests can indulge in relaxing massages or enjoy a workout in the fully-equipped fitness center. The Spa menu offers tailor-made spa treatments, luxurious facials, rejuvenating pedicures and manicures as well as exquisite body treatments. All Spa products are handmade Vermont and contain only herbal extracts, organic herbal teas and pure essential oils.

Summer and winter, there is a lot to do, whether hiking, climbing, fishing, canoeing, skiing or ice skating.

Accommodations start at $ 1,450 for two people. The price includes all meals, drinks, cocktails, wine and the use of the spa area including the Furo – a 104 degree Japanese style soaking tub – as well as the use of recreational equipment such as canoes and fishing tackle.
