This culinary resort will satisfy all your cravings, with two delicious restaurants that source local ingredients (some from the resort’s organic gardens) and its very own Cook Academy – a hands-on culinary experience where you become the chef. Elsewhere, The Tavern serves up traditional pub fare, with breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menus, while Junction offers an atmosphere that will make you feel like you’re in the chef’s own home.


The largest and only full-service freestanding spa in the Burlington area, Spa at the Essex is set in Vermont’s beautiful Green Mountains and has one mission: to create a space where you can relax, rejuvenate and recharge. Choose from an extensive menu of massages, body treatments, detoxes, facials and salon services, and when you’re done being pampered, enjoy complimentary use of the steam and sauna rooms, fitness center, pools, hot tub, tennis courts and relaxation loungers.


Essex epitomizes Vermont, with its sprawling landscapes, Green Mountain views, maple syrup and vineyard, and The Essex Resort & Spa is right in the heart of it all. Beyond the resort’s own 18 mountainside acres are lovely destinations for a variety of tastings, like wine, cider, chocolate and syrup. The resort will arrange guided tours for anything you’d like to learn more about or see up close and personal.

Rated by Frommer’s as One of the World’s Ten Best Hot Air Balloon Adventures, balloon rides are famous here, and not to be missed. Once you’re back on the ground, hit the Essex outlets for bountiful shopping options.
