Luxury Vacations: This is an opportunity to leave the everyday routine behind and drift off into a secluded environment that provides equal doses of privacy and pampering. Envision a woodsy setting that is both cozy and lavish. New England's Twin Farms, which is located in Barnard, Vermont, is such a destination with its spacious stone-constructed remote cottages dotting its 300-acre rural landscape. There are 20 additional suites that are spacious and provide scenic views, screened-in porches and fireplaces. Once there it is hard to imagine ever leaving this tranquil setting. Providing maximum indulgence for guests is the sole mission of Twin Farms' gracious and accommodating hospitality staffers.
The highly touted luxury resort was recognized in 2005 by three of the most recognized sources in the travel industry. Andrew Harper Travel named Twin Farms its 2005 Grand Award Winner. Zagat ranked it fourth on its 2005 list of Top Rated U.S. Hotels for Resorts & Inns Under 100 Rooms, and the Mobil Travel Guide designates it as a Mobil Five-Star Lodging.
Twin Farms offers activities and events year round with golf, tennis, sailing, hiking, hot-air ballooning, croquet and foliage. Winter and fall activities include ice-skating, skiing, X-country
skiing, sleigh rides and snowshoe hiking. A full-service spa and fitness center also are available, including a furo. "Furo" means "bath" in Japanese. The spa's furo is a huge sunken stone tub that, with its sliding doors, becomes as breezy or steamy as guests desire it. Areas are specifically
designated for men and women as well as a communal area where the furo's 104-degree water can stir up a very relaxing atmosphere among loved ones and friends.
Twin Farms can accommodate affairs of any size or scope. Business gatherings, meetings or retreats or family reunions, weddings or special gatherings are serviced flawlessly. This is truly a luxury resort for
all seasons and reasons.
