The moment my husband and I came upon the unmarked gate and heard the friendly voice over the intercom welcome us, we knew we were in for an experience. The perky (but not annoyingly so) hostess (?) greeted us with glasses of champagne as we stepped out of our car. Yes, it was a long 5 hour drive from NJ and we were weary. But one deep breath confirmed we were in Vermont. The room was beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture, warm colors and crackling fire with music playing quietly on stereo. I felt like I walked into a novel and I was the main character! The staff were incredibly accomodating - we had a yen for cheese and crackers in the afternoon and our dedicated staff member brought us an incredible picnic basket filled with cheese, crackers, shrimp cocktail and a bottle of wine.
All the meals were creative, interesting and delicious. The hotel sends a food questionairre ahead of time to get to know our likes and dislikes, food allergies,etc. So not once did we ever get something we didn't like. Everyone is served the same meal. But this adds to the small feel of the hotel - it's more like you're staying with friends for the weekend and you eat whatever they're making but you know it will always be great. The sommelier Eric was a plethera of wine knowledge and his choices were fabulous every time. Did I mention most people had jeans on for dinner? Love it!
The only bad feeling I had all weekend was when we had to leave. Twin Farms truly is the most relaxing place on Earth.
