Culinary Resort Nestled in Vermont Countryside

The Essex Resort & Spa stretches across 18 forested acres between the wooded shores of Lake Champlain and the foothills of the Green Mountains. But the picturesque setting is just part of the draw. This four-season resort also features an award-winning full-service spa as well as a culinary school that offers classes in everything from pasta making to cake decorating.

The resort’s cooking academy employs seasoned chefs who are experts at imparting technique during relaxed, hands-on classes. Executive chef Shawn Calley, a two-time winner of the region’s Top Chef competition, shows off his talents at Junction restaurant, where you can try unique fare made with locally sourced ingredients. Another onsite eatery is The Tavern, which offers upscale pub fare such as beef nachos and wild mushroom cannelloni.

The full-service Spa at The Essex features saunas, relaxation lounges, and a 25-yard indoor lap pool. The spa’s menu of services includes purifying facials, body wraps, and manicures. With this getaway, you’ll stay in a spacious and comfortable traditional guest room or one-bedroom suite.

Lake Champlain, Vermont: World-Class Skiing Between Adirondacks and Green Mountains

The Essex Resort & Spa is located just outside Vermont’s largest city, Burlington, right between the mountains. Burlington is also home to a handful of renowned breweries as well as boutique shops at Church Street Marketplace, a pedestrian mall.

About 10 miles from the hotel, the University of Vermont sits on a hill overlooking the city. Take a stroll through the leafy campus to reach Fleming Museum, a striking Beaux Arts building that houses works by John James Audubon, Andy Warhol, Winslow Homer, and other American artists.
