Twin Farms is known for its design. The use of large stone slabs, rich woodwork and brick creates an overall rustic elegance, while an eccentric art collection infuses boldness and energy and plenty of whimsy. And it’s pretty much anything goes from there. Each room or cottage has its own unique design style. Rooms in the main building, a 1795-era farmhouse, like to tell a story; ask about booking Dorothy’s Room and Red’s Room, named after journalist Dorothy Thompson and her husband Sinclair Lewis (nickname Red) who once owned the place.
Famous interior designer Jed Johnson designed most of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. The luxury Vermont hotel originally opened in 1993 with 15 accommodations, and in 2005, architect Peter Bohlin designed the Aviary and the Farmhouse. The Aviary’s mid-century furnishings are jazzed up by the bold use of orange. The Farmhouse, on the other hand, is more along the lines of what you’d expect to see in Vermont: brick fireplaces, wingback furniture, plenty of plaid. The other cottages are all over the map: The Meadow Cottage features a sexy Moroccan design complete with tented ceiling, while the Woods Cottage takes its inspiration from Tuscany.
