Our Setting

Located about three hours from Boston, five hours from New York City, and one and a half hours from the nearest commercial airport in Burlington, the journey into the bucolic landscape surrounding Barnard, Vermont begins the Twin Farms experience. Allow time to dine on lunch and peruse antique shops, visit the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and tour a working farm, or watch artists shape fine glassware at the Simon Pearce factory in Quechee. Let the odyssey help you escape and reconnect. Once on the property’s vast 300 acres, seclusion and privacy come first. But some of the shared facilities provide social opportunities as subtle or invigorating as you wish.

Art & Design

It all began as a personal escape for Twin Farms founder Thurston Twigg- Smith. He wanted to keep the 1795-era farmhouse as the heart of the property, and allow each cottage to express its own personality through architecture, interior design, and art from his private collection.

Twin Farms opened in 1993 with 15 accommodations. Jed Johnson, regarded as one of the world’s leading interior designers, fashioned these living spaces. In 2005, famed residential architect Peter Bohlin — who designed homes for Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, among others — constructed Aviary and the Farmhouse at Copper Hill, which contains four private suites around a common library and living room. Interior designer Thad Hayes perfected the integration between function and feel in the more recent accommodations.

The attention to detail continues outdoors, with gardens and grounds designed by landscape architect Dan Kiley. The result is a natural topography reminiscent of a country estate replete with recreational areas and wild gardens.

Drive in Style

Twin Farms and Relais & Chateaux are thrilled to partner with BMW. For your enjoyment, we have two beautiful BMW 750i X drive sedans. If you would like to take one out for a lovely drive or perhaps a picnic in the Vermont countryside – please just say the word. Our Guest Experience coordinators would be delighted to make the arrangements.
