Roxanne Genier: Global Traveler Brings Her Luxury Background to Blogging, Digital Marketing


oxanne Genier started her career in luxury as a sailor with a passion for the sea. Once a naval intelligence specialist in the Canadian Naval Reserve, she instantly fell in love with superyachts while on a family sailing trip to the Bahamas. For Roxanne, it wasn’t about luxury; rather, it was about the beauty of sailing the world on the most technologically-advanced boats. She joined the crew of her first superyacht in the Hamptons as a stewardess, but as soon as the opportunity presented itself, she became a deckhand, so she could be a sailor once more. She spent the next five years sailing from Germany to Thailand, from Florida to the Caribbean, and from France to Turkey, discovering every port town and harbor along the way. Her experience aboard superyachts owned by billionaires, celebrities, or successful entrepreneurs allowed her to gain a unique perspective into the UHNWI lifestyle. Roxanne left the yachting industry as a Master of 200 tons (Offshore), and to this day, she still holds superyachts close to her heart. Upon her return to Montreal, Roxanne decided to perfect her skills at servicing the elite to better understand the affluent community and the luxury market. She became the Personal Assistant to an UHNWI for several years, following her employer from destination to destination and from business meetings to family trips. During that time, she managed several properties, booked hundreds of trips, and purchased millions of dollars in luxury goods, but amongst all, she learned that, for the affluent, time is the ultimate luxury. Ready to move onto her next adventure, Roxanne, in collaboration 10 |

with her sister, Maxine, adept in branding, design, and photography, launched LuxeInACity, a luxury magazine with curated city guides designed to showcase real-life recommendations by luxury experts. Under their direction, LuxeInACity represents the finest travel experiences on all continents, with journeys to suit all tastes and adventures. In September 2014, Roxanne was voted as one of the Top 5 Best Luxury Travel Bloggers by the readers of USA Today. This distinction came after being listed as one of the Top 10 Luxury Lifestyle & Travel Blogs by Paramount Business Jets and as one of the Top 50 Best Luxury Blogs & Websites by Gosy. In 2014, Roxanne and Maxine co-founded Agence:Luxury, a social digital agency for luxury brands that target an affluent clientele. They currently oversee the digital strategies and created content for several luxury brands, such as superyachts, superyacht builders, private jet companies, luxury goods, and fashion brands. With a focus on personalization, customization, and connecting people to premium services and items, their 100-percent virtual bespoke company infuses branding, marketing, design, publishing, and social media with their thorough understanding of the luxury market. Roxanne Genier seems to be on an endless adventure, experiencing sheer luxury around the world while growing a successful marketing agency. Having sailed 60,000 nautical miles and clocking up 40,000 miles on a Pan American road trip, Roxanne proves that luxury travel can be a work of art. â–

Twin Farms Barbard, Vermont

Twin Farms Adds Art and History to a Luxurious, Pastoral Location the Aviary, a two-story building of glass, stone, and cedar designed History, art, and a stunning bucolic setting come together at Twin by architect Peter Bohlin and interior designer Thad Hayes, presents Farms, an intimate, all-inclusive country hideaway in Barnard, Vermont. These 300 acres of meadows and woodlands in an untouched valley sit just 15 minutes north of Woodstock, and here, you’ll find beautiful interiors designed by the late Jed Johnson and grounds shaped by the late Dan Kiley. Twin Farms began as a farmhouse purchased in 1928 by writers Henry Sinclair Lewis and Dorothy Thompson. Over 30 years, they developed the land and entertained some of the notable political and literary figures of the early 20th century. By 1958, the property was sold off, and in 1974, Thurston Twigg-Smith bought it, coming up with a plan for a bed and breakfast. Twigg-Smith strived to keep the farmhouse as the center but wanted each cottage to express its own character, and as such, Twin Farms opened in its current state in 1993. Twin Farms is now Vermont’s only five-star experience with an art collection. Johnson, who designed the interior spaces with associate Alan Wanzenberg, blended American folk with contemporary art, adding a varied collection to multiple luxurious spaces. Playing off the lush fabrics and natural woods are hand-painted murals, woodwork, folk art, and contemporary oils. The grounds, complementing the rustic character, aspire to a joyous, fun nature that embraces and respects its surrounding environment. The setting is split between public areas – the Dining Room, Barn Room, Pub, Cabana, and Fitness Center – and 20 distinctive lodgings, featuring king-size feather beds, sitting areas with wood-burning fireplaces, and screened porches, all in secluded woodland settings. The Main House is home to four larger suites - Red’s Room, Dorothy’s Room, The Guest Room and The Washington Room. The Lodge, the location of the former artists’ studio, further offers two large bedroom suites. Four more suites are located in the Farmhouse at Copper Hill, on a knoll by copper pond. Here, the Farmhouse and the Barn are situated on either side of a library and lounge. Additionally, 28 |

more living spaces. In addition to these buildings, the grounds are home to nine private cottages, ranging in size up to 3,000 square feet over two floors. Marvel in the relaxed, secluded setting while taking in the warmth of the fireplace or lounging in one of the soaking tubs. Twin Farms further stands out with its sumptuous cuisine. Savor your meals in the Main Dining Room, known for its casual elegance and culinary artistry; the Barn Room, with live music; or the Pub, an eclectic space with a baby grand piano, a television, jukebox, pool table and darts, and fully stocked bar. Instead of menus, Twin Farms’ chefs exceed guests’ culinary expectations with specially curated meals. The cuisine reflects the changing seasons, inspired by Vermont’s finest produce, and Twin Farms’ farm-grown herbs, fruits and vegetables. Executive Chef Nathan Rich heads up the unique culinary program serving a breakfast with award-winning pancakes and multi-course lunch and dinner, carefully paired with wine from the 20,000 wine cellar featuring American and international offerings. For a few days or longer, there’s much to do. In warmer temperatures, hike through the surrounding woods, bike or play tennis on the grounds, and swim in, canoe, or fish on the water. In winter, the area is ideal for downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, ice skating, and sledding. As well, a golf course is nearby for playing a few rounds. More relaxation opportunities can be found in the The Bridge House Spa, Fitness Center, and the Furo, a Japanese-style soaking tub. With separate pools for the sexes, the latter option heats the water up to 104°F to create a sauna-like atmosphere. Twin Farms isn’t just great for visiting – events benefit from its expansive grounds and facilities. All or part of Twin Farms may be reserved for weddings, celebrations, get-togethers, and corporate retreats, with cuisine customized to your tastes and activities included. ■
