The Bridge House Spa

Romantic relaxation in Vermont
Appointments at the intimate Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Bridge House Spa are exclusively available for guests of Five-Star Twin Farms. Tucked quietly below The Pub, the spa is designed by architect Scott Cornelius and furnished with artwork by William Wegmen, known for his use of canine-inspired pictures, many with meditative poses.

The spa menu at this romantic hideaway was designed in collaboration with Arcania Apothocery of England and offers a small but custom-designed menu of massages, facials and body treatments that you won’t find anywhere else. All ingredients used are plant based and incorporate exotic herbs and essential oils, such as linden blossom, juniper and evening primrose.

With just three treatment rooms, and appointments often booked up months ahead, it’s good to know a fireside in-room massage is a well-kept secret among those in the know.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Just like everything else at the private, uber-luxurious Twin Farms resort, its Bridge House Spa is a sybaritic retreat that’s made even more special by its exclusivity.
  • Sourced exclusively from English beauty brand Arcania Apothecary, The Bridge House Spa is the only spa outside the U.K. to feature these heavenly-scented, botanically based products.
  • This resort is designed to cater to whatever you want, whenever you want it. So if you like to follow-up your spa treatments with a cup of herbal tea and some fresh fruit, just ask the friendly staff.
  • With just two treatment rooms, The Bridge House Spa is a relaxing, intimate space where you won’t have to fight for space in the locker room or to drown out other guest’s conversations when you’re trying to bliss out.
  • The interior of The Bridge House Spa is designed with a palette of charming, muted colors: soothing cream, blue and green tones blend in with the thick trees and plants surrounding the spa, promoting a sense of peace and tranquility.
Things to Know
  • You’ll want to leave your valuables behind in your private room or cottage when you come for a treatment at The Bridge House Spa at Twin Farms resort, because the facility does not have lockers.
  • High quality stone and tile is used in the treatment rooms, which have a cave-like feel thanks to the lack of windows, though they are perhaps better lit than most caverns.
  • The treatment menu at The Bridge House Spa is designed exclusively for the hotel, meaning each service is completely unique.
The Treatments
  • Each treatment offered at The Bridge House Spa at Twin Farms resort is unique in its composition and application of creams, lotions and potions.
  • The spa’s signature service is the Ultimate Body Treatment; just ask for the “UBT,” and be prepared for an hour and 45 minutes of pure indulgence.
  • Many treatments blend massage with other services such as scrubs and masks for a more unique experience-which means you won’t have to choose. One such comprehensive treatment is Back in Action, which, as the name suggests, focuses on the back with a scrub, mask and massage.
  • Book the three-part express treatment Downright Spruced Up, which freshens up your whole body in just 90 minutes. An exfoliating rub is followed by a massage using the spa's blend of sandalwood, orange, ginger and chamomile oil that warms up your muscles and promotes circulation.
The Facilities
  • Located in its own petite structure near the spa, the Japanese-style Furo bath is a serene spot for a soak before or after a treatment. There are separate men’s and women’s sides, or a unisex area where you can take a dip in waters heated to 104 degrees.
  • Plan a workout for before or after your spa service in the fully stocked gym, located adjacent to the spa. Since there are only 20 rooms and cottages at Twin Farms, chances are you’ll have it to yourself.
  • The changing rooms have open-style lockers with hooks for your belongings, and pretty mosaic tiles in the showers that have an iridescent quality to them.
