What Guests Have to Say About Essex Woods

If you are looking for a space for truly building community and connections for smaller groups, look no further.

Typically during a week long session with clients we cannot wait to eat elsewhere, this was not the case. Our Leadership Team commented that this was some of the best food ever – from some real foodies! They were concerned about shared bathrooms that turned out to be no issue for the inclusive environment with beautiful grounds and wonderful and curious art masterpieces. #operationexplore
