Twin Farms Hotel Review

: If you're looking for unbridled pampering and you have the money to pay for it, this is the place. Infused with apple trees and wildflowers, the wooded, 300-acre property is as gorgeous as it gets. Yet most guests come for the indoor pursuits. The spa treatments are to die for, and the cuisine is outstanding. There is no formal menu, and chef Ted Ask is constantly delighting guests with new creations. The main inn (dating back to 1795) has come a long way since it was inhabited by Nobel Prize winning writer Sinclair Lewis and his wife, Dorothy Thompson, a journalist. Works by David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein hang on the walls of the main inn, as well as in the guest rooms. As for the rooms and outlying cottages, they are works of art in and of themselves. The architecture incorporates natural elements such as stone, pine and maple, and d├ęcor draws on Japanese, Moroccan and Scandinavian styles. If you do want to spend some time outdoors, you can enjoy tennis, canoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, biking, lake fishing and downhill skiing. The beginning rates of $1,300 a night get you breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and all the wine (and other beverages) you can drink. Children under 18 are only allowed during certain times of the year.
