Vermont's Essex Resort & Spa "has long been a destination for fine dining and culinary education" (Seven Days Magazine). Travelzoo readers can experience this firsthand with an exclusive $99 offer that includes $50 in credits to use toward dining and culinary classes or spa treatments. Available Sundays-Thursdays through May 9, this getaway saves nearly 70% on regular pricing. Make it a two-night weekend getaway for $249.
Why we love it
- All stays include a $25 dinner credit at Amuse and a $25 credit toward a choice of either a cooking class or spa treatment.
- For those who choose the cooking class, put on a chef's hat, tie on an apron and prepare to julienne all the way to becoming a master in the kitchen at the resort's culinary school. Choose from a range of dinner themes such as Cozy Supper featuring roasted Caribbean squash soup with Vermont goat cheese, or Bistro Favorites where you will master steak au poivre with truffled mashed potatoes and creme brulee.
- Afterward, fill up the rest of the day with all the other activities available at this CAA 4-Diamond resort. There is an ice skating pond, mountain bike rentals and an "Amusing Hour," a culinary twist on happy hour where the chefs mingle with guests while preparing and serving appetizers, amuse bouches and signature cocktails.
- The resort can help arrange other excursions, from putting across the nearby golf course to zip-lining through the forest to floating above the Green Mountains in a hot-air balloon.
