My wife had a knife skills course at NECI and I found a half price Groupon for the Inn and it was a terrific stay. Room was nice size; service upon checking in was prompt and friendly. I am not usually a bell-hop person, but we had a lot of pieces and the bell-hop was excellent. Went into so much... More

Just spent two nights here. The spa amenities are definitely the highlight and the proximity to Burlington, Essex, and Shelburne. The rooms were a bit dated (think 90s carpet, yellow walls, and dated wallpaper) but the beds were super comfortable and there was a nice view of the mountains. The spa was fantastic, the staff was very helpful, you are... More

My daughter and I stayed at this wonderful resort over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We were very charmed by the hospitality of the entire staff. Our room was just perfect and beautifully furnished. We had a lovely dinner at the Junction the first night which was spot on. We ate at the Tavern for breakfast and the food was fine. The... More

Everything about the Essex was top notch. Friendly staff, very clean rooms and super comfortable beds. We used the spa facilities which were again very clean and quiet. Lovely sauna, steam room , hot tub(outdoors), swimming pool and changing area. Next time will have to try a spa treatment. Lunch at the Tavern was average.

We had a lovely meal at The Essex Thanksgiving brunch. Everything was nicely presented in 'The Atrium'. We were lucky, in that we got to sit in 'The Tavern' as it was much calmer than in the crowded Atrium dining room. We found no fault in anything, but unfortunately we were not blown away by anything either. It was a... More

A relaxing getaway is what we were seeking and is exactly what we found. A bit of a hike from New Jersey but it proved to be worth it. Upon arrival we were very pleased with the setting, grounds and exterior ambiance. There is a very scenic mountain view (Stowe, I believe) in the distance. Everything looked well manicured and...
