The Experience

Twin Farms

A country estate, located in Barnard, ten miles north of picturesque Woodstock, rests on 300 acres of rolling hills, meadows, orchards, gardens, woods and ponds in central Vermont. The original 1795 farm house has been transformed into gracious living and dining rooms plus four elegant guest suites.  Surrounding this core are finely detailed guest cottages, a handsome pub, Out of the Woods Spa, fitness center and a separate building housing a Japanese furo.  Guests enjoy excellent cuisine, fine wines and four seasons of recreation all included in the rates. Outdoor activities on site include downhill skiing (six private ski trails with a Poma lift), cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snow-trekking, ice-skating and tobogganing in winter: canoeing, fishing, swimming, hiking, tennis, cycling  and croquet in other months. For golfers, there is the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course a few minutes away at the Woodstock Country Club plus 2 Championship courses in nearby Quechee. Proud member of Relais and Chateaux.
