New to Stash: The Essex Resort & Spa, Burlington VT

The population of The Essex at any given time includes chefs to teach you cooking and make you delicious restaurant meals, chickens in the gardens supplying eggs for breakfast, and very happy visitors playing tennis, strolling through the English-style flower gardens, working their way through offerings from local microbreweries and wineries, and making sure the hammocks don’t get lonely out there under the leafy green trees.
