Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice award winner: Twin Farms
Condé Nast Traveler sifts through the best and most luxurious properties around the globe, and then readers vote for the winners, a list of 50 of the world’s best resorts. Meadows, mountains, hiking and bike trails, and a plethora of greenery surrounded the wooded resort.
In the winter, there’s a vast area for cross-country skiing. Twin Farms offers 10 cottages for guests, nestled among the trees, for your own slice of calm. This is the seventh Readers’ Choice Award for Twin Farms from Condé Nast Traveler. The publication writes of the resort:
“Twin Farms, an 18th-century Southern Vermont farmhouse that once belonged to Nobel Prize–winning writer Sinclair Lewis, is the perfect spot to get away from the city and relax amid maple and pine trees. Our readers laud the first-rate service at this rural retreat. One of only a handful of Relais & Chateaux properties in New England, the food here is superb, with chef Nathan Rich putting together a highly seasonal menu drawn from Vermont produce, meats, and dairy. Beyond the dining room, there’s a guide readily available for walks through the surrounding woods, an on-call chauffeur for local outings, and even someone to bring you milk and cookies at any hour.”
Guests can enjoy farm-to-table dining, a spa, canoeing, beekeeping, cycling, gardening, hiking, tennis, pickleball, and even swimming in tranquil Copper Pond.
In addition to Condé Nast Traveler, goop, Forbes, Travel + Leisure, VOGUE, and dozens of other publications praise the Relais & Chateaux property!
Twin Farms is a 3-hour drive from Boston. Other New England resort ranked as the “best in the world” are New Hampshire’s Wentworth by the Sea (#4) and Chatham Bars Inn (#8).
