Reviews for The Essex, Vermont's Culinary Resort & Spa
The Essex is an older spa resort but it's well worth a visit. The amenities are excellent and the staff is very friendly. My room was comfy and I appreciate their green approach to housekeeping. The spa is simply wonderful and exceeded my expectations.
This is our second time at the Essex , last time we loved the resort, but this time it was very dissatisfied. Make sure to ask if there is a wedding during your stay. Our room was not being cleaned due to a "short stuff and because if the wedding" . There was a vomite smell on one of the blankets. On Saturday and Sunday the place was noisy and not relaxing. Last time we got white robes and white flip flops, 2 bottles of water as expected from a spa. unfortantly not this time. We found on our floor a tray with leftover food more than one day, till we notified the manager. Amanda the manager was very nice but it was to little and still very expensive and not relaxing.

Thank you to the attentive staff. From the moment we stepped out of our car, we were greeted by staff who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. We stayed two nights and everything went well. Beautiful and clean room. Delicious food and desserts.
Everything about this resort was perfect during our stay. The Gourmet Getaway Package was amazing, breakfast, lunch, a cooking class and a spa treatment. Everything was clean and comfortable, the grounds were beautiful, the wait staff was friendly and the spa staff were very professional. The cooking classes they offer are a really great and very unique feature. It's only about a 20 minute/$20 Uber ride to Burlington which was great too. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a relaxing trip.

This was my 5th trip to the Essex and my experience was just as good as the others. The tennis pro, Rob Barr, was fantastic, and the staff at the Essex was extremely helpful. Why my companion went to tennis camp, the staff helped me find some local trails for trail running (which were beautiful!), gave me the free parking pass, and made sure I knew all the details to make it a great experience. The grounds are beautiful, and there's plenty of opportunity to relax...
