Enter foodie heaven at an award-winning Green Mountain estate on 18 acres, just minutes from Burlington.

The Destination
Burlington may be the largest city in Vermont, but it's not short on small-town charm. A cultural hub and college town (home to the University of Vermont), Burlington is bursting with a youthful energy and eclectic spirit. Coffeehouses, microbreweries, and locally sourced restaurants line the streets downtown, where you'll find a blend of artists, professors, and families out and about. "It is no surprise that Burlington, a city whose biggest exports include the jam band Phish and Ben & Jerry's, has a chill, socially conscious vibe," says The New York Times. The picturesque setting off Lake Champlain doesn't hurt either.

The Digs
Indulge your body, mind, and taste buds at The Essex Resort & Spa near Burlington. The Essex has a special focus on cuisine, so the dining options are nearly limitless. Plus, this expansive property is just minutes from Burlington's cultural scene and a short drive from some of the best skiing in the country. Each room features a flat-panel HD television, 300-thread-count linens, and an iHome speaker system. Don't miss out on a soothing visit to the on-site spa, which offers a variety of treatments, an indoor lap pool, steam rooms, saunas, and a fitness center.
