Group Gatherings

The Essex Inn, framed by the serenity of the Adirondack Mountains and the tranquil waters of Lake Champlain, provides the ideal environment for seminars, workshops, retreats or weddings.

Create your own inspired menu with the Inn's chef, complemented by high-tech meeting facilities. A shuttle can be arranged from the Burlington (VT) airport or nearby Westport train station. Begin your gathering with restorative chair yoga. Design an event to ensure that your group rejuvenates in our unparalleled distraction-free setting.

Small groups (up to 14 people) can gather in the Stable with its 19th Century Dutch oven hearth; 16 foot, hand-crafted boardroom table; Wi-Fi wall-mounted big screen, and other workshop amenities.

Groups of up to 85 people can be accommodated in the Old Stone Church, located on the western border of the Inn. This 1800 sq. ft. event space is perfect for weddings, rehearsal dinners, and other events. The beautiful space is adorned with a 19th-century chandelier and stained glass windows that flood the room with natural light. Equipped with 21st-century amenities, the Old Stone Church also includes a wine cellar and catering kitchen to accommodate all of your event’s need.

Let the Essex Inn host your next board meeting, family celebration or unforgettable group gathering of any type.
