    Fabulous

    Great Spa, but dining options are lacking!

    In general: Our room was a bit dated, but spacious and quaint. The Spa was great, best part of the resort. For a culinary resort, the dining options were underwhelming. The restaurant only had one vegetarian main course, and the service at the Tavern was dreadful. The wait on a weekend was unbearable, and not because of high foot traffic. They were painfully slow at turning tables over, taking orders, etc. The hostess was not on top of things. The second night we went, she said they had no tables available and gave me a wait time of 40+ minutes when I could see two free tables from the entrance. When I inquired about those, at first she said she had to keep them free (why???), then she apologized and said I could have one of the free table. We went for two nights on a row due to adverse weather conditions, but if I’m back at the Essex I’ll avoid the Tavern at all costs. Dining: Avoid the Tavern at all costs! Service is slow, and the hostess is incompetent. The Junction does not have enough vegetarian options. Sports and leisure: Great pool, fitness center, and Spa! Room: The sofa bed in our room needs to be replaced. The frame and the mattress were done. Otherwise, room was okay.

    Awesome place!! The food was wonderful ( I will take a culinary class next time), the amenities were many and varied, and the service was excellent. There were lots of travelers but it didn't ever seem crowded at the pool or spa or playground. The large grounds made for a spacious feeling; there was golf and tennis, hiking trails, a climbing wall, two playgrounds indoor and outdoor pool, hot tub and a spa building! Something for everyone. We had a wonderful time and our family ranged from a two year old to grandparents.

    Very good

    The food was great!

    Staff was a little "stand offish", but that may simply be the Vermont way.
