Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 20 rooms in total including four suites in the Main House, two in the neighbouring Lodge, four in the Farmhouse at Copper Hill (which can be taken as a private property for large families of groups of friends, with a library and living room) and a further ten single room cottages dotted around the woods. All the rooms have fireplaces and baths, while the cottages have private porches with some their own terraces. No two rooms share the same décor, and you could find yourself in anything from the Moroccan themed Meadow, the Tuscan tinged Woods or the tuile-fest Guest room in the Main House.

Away from the rooms, the décor includes many American folk motifs and pieces of contemporary art as well as other eclectic collections, combined together to create an idiosyncratic but extremely comfortable whole.

The Main House is the hotel's hub, and home to the Main Dining Room with its large fireplace and vaulted ceiling. The dining concept at Twin Farms means there are no menus, with the chef and his team using seasonal and local produce (much of it from the farm's own herb and vegetable gardens) to create dishes according to the guests' requirements. Whatever you order, the sommelier should find something suitable to accompany the food from the 26,000 bottle wine cellar, with its fine selection of American wines from California, Oregon and Washington plus many great European vintages as well. Before dinner, The Barn Room is the place to enjoy an early evening cocktail, while the Pub comes complete with Wurlitzer juke box and fully stocked help-yourself bar.

During the day, guests can enjoy biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, croquet, tennis, fly fishing, walking and picnics. In winter the hotel ups the ante even more by having its own ski slopes, cross country and snowshoe trails and ice skating lake, with all relevant equipment provided on site. For guests looking to enjoy a less frenetic stay, The Bridge House Spa offers a wide range of treatments including facials, massages and pedicures, and there's also a wooden Japanese Furo soaking tub.

Why we love it

Any hotel that has its own ski runs in winter gets our vote, and come fall (OK, OK, autumn) when Vermont is at its most spectacular, Twin Farms is one of the most civilised places to stay.
