If you are ready for a quick and romantic weekend getaway (who isn’t?), here is one that should get you motivated to actually go for it instead of dream about it.
Twin Farms in Vermont (rated as one of the top 10 small resorts in almost every travel publication) is offering a “Fall Bonus” special: Stay 3 nights for the price of 2 in any of the four suites in the Farmhouse at Copper Hill. Three gourmet meals daily, afternoon tea, beverages, wine (from a 26,000 wine collection!) and on-site activities are included. The offer is valid through the end of November.
For those of you unfamiliar with this wonderful place, Twin Farms is an all-inclusive country estate nestled on 300 acres just 10 miles north of Woodstock.
Guests enjoy the use of a handsome pub, full fitness center, spa, lakeside cabana, a 104 degree Japanese-style Furo tub and many recreational activities (hiking, biking, fly-fishing, canoeing, tennis…). But what Twin Farms is renowned for the most is the decadent cuisine served by the chef, Neil Wigglesworth (name reminds me of a british cartoon character). He is formerly chef of The Point and Le Gavroche in Paris.
While the prices are pretty steep even with the discount ($1,266 a night), it’s hard to put a price on ultimate luxury and relaxation. Just a five hour car ride from Manhattan….
