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.

The grounds, large hotel room (with a full kitchen), spa, The Tavern restaurant, check-in staff was very friendly and helpful.

Amuse restaurant - it wasn't busy, but we waited a long time for service. It seemed as though they were understaffed. The prices were high in relation to how we valued the meal.

Nice relaxed atmosphere. Great value for the price.

Used the Inn as a stopping point on way for long weekend in Montreal. Perfect interim stop from Boston. The entire staff was enthusiastic and very helpful. The rooms were large, comfortable, and quiet. The meal in the tavern was delicious and the desserts magnificent. The breakfasts, with made to order eggs/omelets and attentive wait staff made the meals very pleasant experience. The price was right thanks to the Travel Zoo special. Easy to access Burlington for activities. Did not get to use the Spa, pool, or take cooking lessons. Maybe next time.
