About Essex Woods
At Essex Woods we hold the belief that every person, business, non-profit, and organization is imbued with often overlooked intangibles that make the whole greater than the sum of the parts. These precious qualities are almost always the difference between failure and success. Essex Woods exemplifies this belief in that what we bring to your meeting or retreat goes far beyond the stunning grounds, artwork, and facilities.
The special qualities Essex Woods provides will transform your meeting or retreat into an experience not easily found in a more typical venue. When you choose Essex Woods you can expect a gathering washed in insight, inspiration, and camaraderie. You will instantly recognize these intangible qualities that assist in transcending from good to great.
