The Essex, Vermont's Culinary Resort & Spa

18 Green Acres with a Culinary Heart

Acres of English-style flower gardens, organic veggie and herb gardens and hiking trails surround this Vermont spa and culinary resort. Use the resort's snowshoes in winter and their bicycles in the summer, then come home to dinner at The Tavern with sustainable local ingredients—plus a good wine list and Vermont microbrews—and a fireplace suite (optional).

What it's like

The Essex Resort & Spa Vermont HammocksRooms range from small traditional roosts—some with fireplaces—to suites with hearthstone gas stoves. The look is Vermont country: pine dining tables, rocking chairs. Don't miss the spa; it's a high-end experience with products by Skin Authority, Epicuren, and Aromafloria, and nice steam rooms and relaxation areas.

Independent spirit

Romantic resort with fun for foodies

Small touches

This pet friendly resort has plenty of room to romp plus pet treats—with "Doggy Dinners" room service and even cooking classes to make them (check the Cooking Academy schedule and the dinner menu for Rover).

Eat and drink

With an open kitchen at one end and a hearth at the other, Junction is a warm, lively place to dine on organic cuisine prepared by the resort's team of talented chefs. Order a la carte or enjoy the 5-course tasting menu.

Tavern's casual pub fare menu has a Vermont foodie twist (Duck Duck Goose, Monkey Bread) plus local microbrews, an award winning wine list and craft cocktails.

Cook Academy Classes include a 3-4 course meal paired with wine.
