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.Get Directions Property Map

Our expectations should have been impossible to exceed- but our stay at Twin Farms has been so much more than we expected!
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.
Vermonters have had a longtime adoration for Volvos. With miles of dirt roads throughout Vermont in need of exploring, a partnership with Volvo USA seemed perfectly natural. Thanks to Volvo USA, Twin Farms now has a luxurious Volvo XC90 SUV and a sporty V90 Cross Country for you to use during your stay.
If you’re looking for an adventure beyond our beautiful setting, a lovely drive through the Vermont countryside - complete with a chef-created picnic - might be just what you need. For even more fun, try loading up the Volvo with a couple of our premier mountain bikes to explore off-road spots worth the extra push.
We request that our guests simply connect with our Guest Experience Team to make arrangements. The Volvos are loaned based on availability and are enjoyed on a first-come, first-served basis.
