My husband and I recently stole away for two luxurious days. Not wanting to hop on a plane, we opted for the quietly elegant retreat in southern Vermont, known as Twin Farms.
Formerly the private home of Nobel Prize-winning author Sinclair Lewis and his wife, journalist Dorothy Thompson, it would years later become a small ski resort.
Today, it is a much lauded boutique property where your needs are anticipated and expectations surpassed.
Though I’ve heard it is spectacular in any season, we appreciated being in a winter wonderland where we could actually enjoy the snow, instead of shovel it. Twin Farms provides everything you need: skis, sleds, snowshoes, poles, skates…and a ski sherpa to take you up the private mountain on a snowmobile tram time after time. Until you are ready for lunch and a cocktail.
