The Essex Resort & Spa, Essex

Just 7 miles from Burlington International Airport, The Essex, Vermont’s Culinary Resort & Spa, offers a complete getaway experience combining natural beauty and access to the area’s most exciting attractions and cultural events, and the best dining in the region.  Minutes from downtown Burlington and gorgeous Lake Champlain the Resort is set on 18 beautiful acres.

Junction, our AAA Four Diamond award-winning restaurant, draws inspiration from farm-fresh ingredients and embraces a true Chef and Gardener collaboration.  Utilizing our on-site gardens, we strive to bridge the gap between planning and plating.  At The Tavern, enjoy Vermont pub fare while sampling our extensive list of craft beers on draft, a glass of wine, or a specialty cocktail.  For over 25 years, The Tavern has been a favorite meeting place of locals and Resort guests alike.

A stay would not be complete without a rejuvenating visit to the Spa at The Essex. The Spa is the largest and only full service spa in the Burlington area.  Our Recipe for Relaxation encourages you to arrive early to unwind and enjoy complimentary use of our spa’s steam and sauna rooms, fitness center, pools, hot tub, tennis courts, and relaxation lounges.

At The Essex, we can customize a tour with a cooking demonstration or custom hands-on cooking classes in our famous Cook Academy.  Do you like shows such as, “Iron Chef”? We offer our own version, which allows guests to compete for glory in a fun and exciting atmosphere.  Learn the intricacies of many international cuisines or be taught the culinary uniqueness of Vermont.  Golf carts are located at our entrance for your convenience as you enjoy a game at Links at Lang Farm.
