Just returned from a few days at Twin Farms. Every aspect of our visit was superb. From the thoughtful staff to the lovely surroundings we could not have asked for more. We particularly appreciated the delicious Memorial Weekend BBQ! The grounds and room were as immaculate and picturesqe as one would expect from a property of this caliber. Every meal was an event, paired with delicious wines. And, while the weekend was unexpectedly cold and rainy we enjoyed being pampered with wine and snacks by the fireplace while working on Stave Puzzles. It is hard to critique anything about this property..if i could offer anything I would suggest offering more "casual" dining options such as the BBQ. After a few days of fancy meals, somthing more casual was welcome. Additonally while all of the staff offered a sincere and impressive delivery, a couple of the younger members were a bit "green" (unfamiliar with a simple drink like a Kir Royal...oddly placing the dinner bread basket in front of the guest as though it was a meal). Also, the staff was admirably very concerned with our satisfaction but on a few occasions it felt like a parade of staff was stopping by our table to check if we were happy. That being said they did not detract at all from the experience. I am also certain that with a bit more exposure the newer members will do as well as all of the more senior staff. One final thought..for a property so centered around fine wine and dining, offering guests culinary and wine activties would greatly enhance the experience. Why offer intmate wine tastings based on guest preference and/or cooking classes/demos? We also would have liked to have been offered a cellar tour..had that happened we may have been inclined to indulge in some of the reserve wine offerings. All things being said, it is hard to improve upon perfection and Twin Farms is truly perfect. Kudos to Michael and all of his staff! We can not wait for our return this Christmas!
