The Essex, Vermont’s AAA Four-Diamond culinary resort and spa, includes a vast inventory of serious leisure tools, retail-fueled shoppertainment, and close proximity to wondrous activities and outdoor settings. The Essex is set on an 18-acre nook between the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain, offering guests splendid views and unfettered access to wealthy, cosmopolitan Yetis who just finished shooting their third History Channel special. Guests will enjoy luxury accommodations (up to $329 a night depending on availability), plus get two hands-on, front-row seats to a Cook Academy class (up to a $220 value), or, if the culinary calendar is incompatible with lounging desires, two 50-minute Swedish massages (a $220 value) that will knead away all the remaining pent-up tension from being pampered so hard. You can also mix and match by redeeming one spot in a class and one massage. See the sidebar for a full list of retreat benefits.
