Our Dining Philosophy: Inclusive

The culinary and wine experience is integral to each stay at Twin Farms. Which is why all of it — with few exceptions — is included in your stay.

Our cuisine is an ode to the changing seasons, inspired by Vermont's finest produce and Twin Farms' estate-grown herbs and vegetables. Chef Nathan Rich and his team will take you on a culinary journey rooted in the fertile soil of New England.

Your rate at Twin Farms includes all meals, wine pairings, and spirits enjoyed in our public dining areas, indoors and out, or in your own cottage or suite. We can also put together a picnic by the pond, atop the Ski Hill, or anywhere else on the grounds — or pack a boxed lunch to take along on an activity.

Above all, we want you to feel at home at Twin Farms. You may be as social or as private as you wish. We have no dress codes. Allow us to design a culinary experience with your personal preferences in mind by sharing your dietary restrictions in advance via our online concierge form.

Main Dining Room

Vaulted beam ceilings and a large fieldstone fireplace set the stage for our signature degustation experience, where casual elegance and camaraderie come together over the artistic culinary preparations of Chef Nathan Rich and his team.

Our location in Vermont lets us source ingredients at the peak of their flavor. Butter and cheese from local dairies. Beef, chicken, and pork from nearby farms. Herbs, vegetables, and fruits that flourish in the warm Vermont sun. We supplement that bounty with produce fresh from our own gardens, syrup from our maples, and honey from our hives. The resulting dishes sing with the season — elevated by the creativity and technique of our culinary artisans.

Wine Director and Lead Sommelier Morgan LaCroix and her team pour from the distinctive selection of wines in our 15,000-bottle cellar, which ranges from well-known Californian and French estates to emerging vintners from across the globe. Our exclusive reserve wine list offers a limited selection of world-renowned premium bottles, available at additional cost. We also offer special culinary experiences, such as a private dinner in the Wine Cellar. Surcharges may apply.

The Dining Room is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with offerings that change each day. And just as at home, you will never see a dinner menu.

Twiggs — Now Open

Reimagined and redesigned, Twiggs has been designed as a counterpoint to the main Dining Room with an informal dining experience featuring familiar favorites amid a relaxed indoor/outdoor setting.

Rather than allowing us to make the menu decisions, Twiggs, encourages our guests to own the moment by selecting exactly what they would like to enjoy, how many course they might like, and what wine they may prefer to have paired.

Convivial yet elevated, the space blends farmhouse appeal with contemporary comfort, with a beautiful bar, lounge, and dining area — all warmed by a roaring fireplace – as well as a terrace overlooking the covered bridge.

Evolving monthly, Chef Nathan Rich revolves the menu around the Argentinian wood-fired grill, producing burgers, steaks, and other dishes kissed with smoke. Appetizers and snacks, soups and salads, stews and house made pastas round out the offerings, followed by individual pies, ice cream, and Vermont cheeses. Twiggs is the ideal spot to unwind, reflect, and refuel.

Twiggs welcomes guests daily for afternoon snacks, artisanal cocktails and for dinner.

We can’t wait to see you!

Sylvain Courbet

Chef de Cuisine, Sylvain Courbet

Born and raised in the French Alps, Sylvain Courbet joined the team at Twin Farms in 2013.  Entrenched in the world of culinary arts from a young age (Courbet’s father was also a professional chef), it was only a matter of time before Courbet left his first post as the Twin Farms daytime dishwasher to join the establishment’s distinguished culinary team.  Under the mentorship of Chef Nathan Rich and Chef Chris Wilson, in conjunction with what he had learnt from his father over the years, Courbet demonstrated a natural ability in the kitchen.

The vibrant agricultural scene and cheese making tradition of rural Vermont, reminiscent of Courbet’s hometown in the Alps, and Twin Farms’s dedication to supporting local produce and grass-fed meats, are all passions of Chef Courbet.  His professional experience is augmented by the six years that he spent travelling the world as a teacher and a chef, working in Ireland, China, Australia, and New Zealand. Chef Courbet is the Chef de Cuisine at Twin Farms, a Forbes 5-Star Hotel, Relais & Chateaux Member, and winner of the 2019 Forbes 5-Star Travel Guide Hotel of the Year.
