Check in was fast and friendly. Room was exquisite. Dinner at the Junction was outstanding. Great pool and gym. Hotel is a Culinary resort and they have cooking classes you can sign up for. Spa services are available. I can not wait to visit again.

Cozy accomodations with plenty of considerably staffed, professional amenities for families; spatious, remarkably afforadable and modestly oppulent. We enjoyed a local farm platter and local cider at the Tavern in our brief stay and observed cooking courses.

I took my husband here for his birthday to take a cooking class and spend the night. Overall,we were actually pretty shocked by how rude many of the staff were. While it was a nice enough facility, and the cooking class was fun, I would not go back. I booked a room with a fireplace and whirlpool tub about 3 months in advance. When we arrived we were checked into the hotel by a young woman who seemed VERY bored and was pretty rude. We got to our room and it had neither a fireplace or a whirlpool tub. I went back to ask about it. The same girl shrugged and said “that’s subject to availability.” Again, sort of bored and annoyed that I was talking to her and not at all apologetic. It felt like dealing with an airline staff member, rather than a hotel. We did a cooking class, which was good, although there were really too many people (8 participants with room for max 6). We both had fun and learned some stuff even though there was a lot of sitting around. Our room was in the first floor and it was very loud, but clean and nice enough. Finally, for breakfast the next day, the restaurant had a 45 minute wait so we sat at the bar. We waited 30 minutes for our food, and in the meantime, we noticed that multiple tables sat dirty with dishes for 30-40 minutes. It’s an inexpensive option if you don’t want to spend $500-1000 a night for a spa, but you get what you pay for, and the service and efficiency was worse than a Best Western. I would not recommend it to anyone.

I had previously written a review in Trip Advisor about how wonderful the food was at the Essex Inn during Restaurant Week and on Mother's Day. Now I would like to tell you about how wonderful the Inn was in reaching out to fellow Vermonters who had no electricity for approximately one-week. The Essex in gave us a King-Sized room with a lovely shower and a fireplace for a lower rate because of the storms. Enough said. Whenever you need a place to stay in Northern Vermont, the Essex Inn and Resort is the place to stay.

Would like to visit in summer. Both trips have been cold in Nov. I’m sure it’s amazing. I feel like I’m staying at Bob Newhart’s place when here. It’s quaint, it’s unique and it makes a trip to Vermont so nostalgic. The restaurants are great, as is the staff in the hotel. The mansion has been renovated. The rooms are more modern, but not quite 5-stars or even 4-stars. But that’s what makes this place fun. Check out the spa when here. It’s incredible. Oh, so are the cooking classes. Way fun!!
