Why Stay At The Essex, Vermont's Culinary Resort & Spa

Just a short drive from the thriving cultural scene in Burlington, VT, guests at The Essex soak in private hot tubs, hike the property's winding trails, and nourish their foodie aspirations with on-site culinary classes.

The Scoop

Rambling over 18 acres where suburban Burlington meets the Green Mountains, The Essex is a laid-back resort with a welcoming staff. The 120 rooms feature four-poster beds, fireplaces, and fanciful rugs and pillows. A new full-service spa plus golf, tennis, hiking trails, and a huge pool offer plenty of distractions. But the cuisine is the standout. The resort runs a learning kitchen and offers classes in knife skills, backyard grilling, and more. Visit The Tavern for a BLT with smoked Vermont bacon or a Vermont goat cheese soufflé.

Insider Tips

Want beluga caviar on your burger? Request an ingredient, and if possible, staff will add it to your dish.

Recharge with the spa's Energizing Body Glow, a treatment that incorporates bamboo grains and lime oil, warm peppermint towels, and a polish that uses olive and fig body butter ($60 for 25 minutes).

Why We Love Essex

Hit the beach at Lake Champlain—then pay a visit to the original (yes, original) Ben & Jerry's Ice Creamery. Delicious.

Don't Miss

Outdoor Excursion: Shelburne Farms. Visit nearby Shelburne Farms—a 1,400-acre working farm that's also a National Historical Landmark—to learn about sustainable agriculture, tour the children's farmyard, and stock up on Vermont favorites like farmhouse cheddar, pure maple syrup, and local meadow honey. 1611 Harbor Rd, Shelburne. 802/985-8686.

Brew Scene: Magic Hat Brewery & "Artifactory". Just five minutes south of Burlington, you'll find the quirky and popular spot. Check out the guided tours and tastings (all free)—and don't forget to fill up a growler of one of the many beers on tap to bring home. 5 Bartlett Bay Rd, South Burlington. 802/658-2739.

Best Beach: Lake Champlain. Spend the day on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain, America's sixth largest lake. Lounge at one of the many beaches, charter a sailboat, spend an afternoon kayaking, or just spread out on a blanket and enjoy the sunset.

Top Dessert: Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory. It wouldn't be a trip to Vermont without a visit to the famous Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory. Learn about the production process and sample the flavor of the day, then spread out for a picnic lunch overlooking the rolling pastures of the Worcester Range. 1281 Waterbury-Stowe Rd, Waterbury. 802/882-1240.
