Dining at Twin Farms’ restaurant is a unique experience that is at the very essence of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. There is only one restaurant, and it doesn’t have any menus. While this may seem constrictive to some, the meals here are a show in and of themselves. If, like us, you love food and wine, you will be happy to leave the dining decisions up to executive chef Ted Ask and wine manager Eric Reichenbach. However, the hotel will go out of its way to accommodate any special requests, likes and dislikes. In fact, prior to arrival, you will be sent paperwork where you can outline any such dietary requirements.
The main dining room is a spacious, well-lit area off of the Barn Room, where you will enter. The dining room is center stage for your breakfast, lunch and dinner, though in summer, lunch locations may vary and the use of the outdoor terrace is common. The two-story dining room is anchored by a beautiful floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace; when it lights up at night, the fireplace adds drama to the space and makes you wonder if this is the same room you had breakfast in that morning. Tables are decorated differently at each meal. You may find a small display of miniature topiary trees at breakfast, while delicate hand-blown glass votives speckled with multi-colored jewel tones add interest to the table at dinner. You will get your own table, though if you meet new friends, you may opt to dine with others.
The only other alternate dining location at the luxury Vermont hotel is the Wine Cellar. Home to an impressive collection of 25,000 bottles, this private dining room can accommodate a dinner for up to six people. Meals will definitely be one of the highlights of your stay at Twin Farms.
