78. Twin Farms, Barnard, USA
Ranked #78 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
For heavy hitters and hi-fliers who don’t have their own luxury bolthole in the bucolic Vermont country – here it is.
Twin Farms sprawls across 300 acres of garden, rolling hills and wandering trails. There are rooms and suites but it’s a cottage you’ll lust after. Each is unique (themes include exotic Moroccan, art studio or an alpine chalet), impeccably equipped but with wit, warmth and whimsy.
The all-inclusive tariff means you can fly-fish, snow-ski, canoe, or soak in the Japanese bathhouse to your heart’s content. Meals are beyond delicious. There are no menus – everything is tailored to your personal taste, with the finest local seasonal produce.
Size 10 cottages, plus 10 rooms and suites
