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

Hotels.com genuine guest score 5/5

Hotels.com genuine guest review “Magnificent… the grounds, gardens, art and design.”

Did you know Nobel prize-winning author Sinclair Lewis and fiancée Dorothy Thompson bought the Twin Farms 1795-era farmhouse in 1928 for $10,000.
