What you’ll love: Nestled among the maples and pines of Barnard, Vermont — about 75 miles southeast of Burlington — you’ll find this 18th-century farmhouse that once belonged to Nobel Prize winner Sinclair Lewis. The original building, now part of a sprawling 300-acre Relais & Chateaux estate, is accompanied by 10 unique cottages, the two-bedroom lodge and the four-bedroom farmhouse. Accommodations range from the modernist, Peter Bohlin-designed aviary with a jacuzzi in the living room, to the dog-friendly log cabin with hand-hewn hickory and oak furniture. Expect endless farm-to-table feasts courtesy of Chef Nathan Rich, whose menu changes daily, and free-flowing wine and champagne at this all-inclusive spot. Regulars can look forward to the new Twiggs restaurant, a more informal (but equally delicious) affair than the dining room’s tasting menu.

Romance Factor: Snuggle up in your cottage all weekend and request anything and everything just by dialing 125. You can ask for another bottle of Cabernet, more wood for the fireplace, or a delicious multi-course meal served en suite, complete with wine pairings. Alternatively, you can request a packed lunch to enjoy at one of the property’s many picnic spots, including a platform in the trees, a mountaintop lift hut, and a glass house for two overlooking the vegetable gardens. Enjoy the tranquility of nature with a hike in the summer or hit the slopes in the winter, followed by après-ski time at Twin Farms’ Lean-to Adirondack, outfitted with Vermont Wool blankets and a potbelly stove to keep things comfortable.

Getting there: 1.5 hours from Burlington by car; about three hours from Boston
