staff was so friendly and accommodating. Rooms were superb, restaurants excellent, cannot wait to go back. Very close to Burlington. Cannot beat the price for the service that was provided

This was a fun and educational yet also relaxing weekend getaway. Since my husband and I are into cooking, we particularly enjoyed our time at the Essex. We took the Dining with Vermont Cheese class and made a delicious meal while learning about some tasty local cheeses and some new prep techniques. The knife skills class was definitely useful--we learned... More

We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at this exceptional resort. The facility is extremely well-mantained. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The indoor pool, fitness center and outdoor hot tub were great. The locker rooms are clean. The SPA and the culinary training were the highlights. We tried the couples soak and massage. It is a first-class experience... More

Just came back yesterday from the Essex. This place was lovely. We stayed in the Mansion, room #233. The room was large and clean. We had two queen beds and I think it was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. They had the usual amenities, shower gel, lotion etc. They had a Keurig coffee maker in the room... More

We had a wonderful time. Everything was so clean and everyone was so friendly and accomodating. The chef's table was a real highlight of our stay and the hot tub was so enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!

We came in anticipation of experiencing the two new restaurants and must say, we experienced some of the best food. Anthony at the restaurants was most accomodating and kind. There was a mix up and the front desk had forgotten to make our Chefs Table reservation but Anthony was able to take care of us, he was fantastic and made... More

What a way to spend a girls weekend away! In house restaurants where the food was fabulous, shopping in downtown Burlington just minutes away, the spa is simply relaxing and delightful. Each and every person at the Inn was friendly and accommodating. Talk about clean~~~it was probably one of the best places I've stayed in cleanliness. Pack up your things... More

Got this room on hotwire for $130 at a time when Burlington Hotels were going for $300 plus (or were full), so wasn't sure what to expect. What a wonderful surprise! Service was excellent from check in to check out. Upon our (my young son and I) 10pm check in, friendly, helpful staff gave us each a bag of wonderful... More
