By Travelzoo Staff
Vermont's Essex Resort & Spa "has long been a destination for fine dining and culinary education" (Seven Days Magazine). Travelzoo readers can learn tips and tricks from top chefs or relax with a 50-minute massage as part of this exclusive two-night deal for $399. This package slashes nearly 50% off current prices.

Why we love it

  • Two guests can arrive Sundays-Wednesdays through January or Thursdays-Saturdays for $100 more. These stays includes a choice of two massages, two cooking classes, or one of each.
  • Put on your chef hat and tie on an apron as you prepare to julienne your way to becoming a master in the kitchen with a three-course cooking class. 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.
  • After sharpening your cooking skills, fill up the rest of the day with all the other activities available at this AAA 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.

relaxing atmosphere, great food, great staff

Oct 01, 2014 lisa MA, United States

The meal was excellent. Enjoyed the chef coming to the table to explain dishes from the menu. Service in the restaurant was also excellent.

Check in could have been more informative. It wasn't clear that we had to call the restaurant and reconfirm our dinner reservations. We did get a room that had a bad smell and we were relocated. However, we were asked to come there to the desk, rather than we'll get right on that and be back to you asap. Eventually, someone did come to the room with new keys.

The service, the food, the whole relaxing experience

The greatest place for a yummy relaxing vacation

Oct 01, 2014 Judy Massachusetts, United States

It was an extremely relaxing environment when we wanted down time and activities galore for the more active moments.

The staff members are exemplars for hospitality. We were treated like royalty. One note, if you have dietary concerns or restrictions, forget taking culinary classes- there is no flexibility in this department.

All I can say is this place is first class and we will be going back again and again.
