The quiet Barnard countryside hides a world-class hotel, Twin Farms. Vermont’s only Relais & Chateaux property shines all year long with hiking, biking, Japanese Furo baths, and stellar cuisine. Synan says, “Visiting the 300-acre pastoral landscapes of Twin Farms is a relaxing way to spend time all year long. The all-inclusive philosophy is a great way to showcase the locally sourced and seasonally grown ingredients that grace their menus. Staying at the 18th-century farmhouse or one of their ten cottages on the property provides a respite that only rural Vermont can genuinely offer.” And with the isolated location comes a surprising benefit—poor cell service, making this unplugged vacation the perfect time to bond with mom.
