About Essex Conference Center & Retreat

The Essex Conference Center is less than 45 minutes from downtown Boston, on beautiful Cape Ann. Our meeting packages make it easy for you. With one phone call your meeting can be scheduled, planned and booked. Our private natural setting supports group interaction, effective communication and creative thinking. Our private wooded setting offers an unrivaled degree of personal attention and service... both hallmarks of the Center. Our two contemporary, multi-level buildings are set on eighteen acres of wooded property, surrounded by 250 acres of conservation land, within a short walk to Essex Bay. The Center's beautifully landscaped grounds are crisscrossed by walking trails, punctuated by open spaces that invite you to stop and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Nearby, you'll find the town of Essex, and the rest of Cape Ann, an area that offers dining, entertainment and activities that can provide a refreshing break from your program and help people to maintain a high level of concentration. Each of our three meeting rooms are spacious and well equipped. They can be flexibly configured to suit your needs. They are equipped with the standard audio-visual aids which include: overhead projector, VCR and monitor, flip charts, recording equipment and slide projector. We have a single goal for your program: to create a comfortable, supportive environment that heightens concentration and productivity. We feature gourmet meals, beautifully presented and served in friendly and relaxed atmosphere.... another example of our attention to detail and our commitment to make every aspect of your meeting experience an outstanding one. Even the layout of our dining room is designed to further the learning experience; benches replace chairs, encouraging conversation so effectively that people routinely stay to talk long after the meal is done.
