Twin Farms – Your Inclusive Resort

Posted on 2 min read 76 views

Located about 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. Once on the property’s vast 300 acres, seclusion and privacy come first.

Each season exudes a distinct feeling at Twin Farms. No matter what the season, myriad possibilities await on three hundred pristine acres.

FALL

Our legacy revolves around Fall foliage, bringing unparalleled beauty in shades of red and gold bathed in crisp air, with the promise of warmth and intimacy at the end of the day. “There will be apple trees and flaming lilies, and the moon over the low mountains and you and me, after dinner, sitting….on the terrace, and inside, when it becomes chilly, the fireplace and lamplight and lots of books,” Sinclair Lewis wrote of his favorite hideaway.

WINTER

Winter offers adventures on private, groomed trails with cross-country skis and snowshoes, or ice skating on our pond followed by hot chocolate and s’mores around a bonfire. A cozy evening starts with fine wine and cuisine. Bring the kids during our winter family week, and reconnect with your own childhood on a sled. Twin Farms offers everything you love about snow, with none of the inconveniences.

SPRING

With the coming of Spring, a fresh palette, rich with green and the promise of warmth, provides the setting for bucolic — and sybaritic — diversions. Hike into the woods, spread out a blanket, and dine on a gourmet picnic. Later in the day, create a festive atmosphere in the pub, brimming with billiards, fine art, and music from the jukebox.

SUMMER

Summer brings ideal mornings for fly fishing on glassy Copper Pond, days full of exercise and exploring our 300 acres on foot or bicycle, followed by an afternoon of mint juleps and croquet. Share stories with each other on your private screened porch in the warm evening breeze. Bring the kids during our summer family week, or reserve the romantic escape just for you.

For the independent, on the go ladies, a quick list of must haves for your next adventure.

  • Neutrogena makeup Remover Wipes, they just work! Best option to remove a makeup super-quickly.

  • I add my favorite scent, Petit Cheri perfume.

Blond-It’s Must Haves For Travel

Arlo Skye, The Aluminum Carry-On

When Arlo Skye launched in 2015, its founders (former Louis Vuitton and Tumi execs) promptly hailed it as “the perfect piece for the design-obsessed traveler,” and, thankfully, The Carry-On still hasn’t disappointed. Made with a lightweight aluminum-magnesium alloy, it has a built-in portable (and removable) charger and the ability to open with a single touch (there are no unsightly zippers, either). Choose from shades of black, silver, and champagne.

No more playing “find the power outlet”

The removable portable charger with built-in surge and short-circuit protection lasts for days. It’s slips out from the exterior with just a push of a button. Talk about convenience!
