Set on 18 acres between Vermont’s Green Mountains and Lake Champlain, just minutes from downtown Burlington, The Essex Resort & Spa is a true destination unto itself. We offer a wide array of cooking classes in Cook Academy, award-winning dining in Junction and The Tavern, a full-service Spa & Fitness Center, onsite tennis and golf, fun family activities, and dozens of gardens & walking trails-- all of which perfectly complement our inviting (and pet-friendly!) accommodations.
The Essex is the perfect choice for your next group meeting, conference, or team-building event. And, along with The Ponds at Bolton Valley, we are the quintessential Vermont wedding destination for happy couples throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The Essex Resort & Spa offers you an experience unlike any other resort in New England.
...a true Recipe for Relaxation.
