I travel professionally (80 to 100 hotels per year) but don't usually write reviews. We stayed here in late July for a wedding and the Essex Inn has remained in my mind since July as one of the premier stays. The staff is friendly, courteous and accomadating. Our room was comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished. (I gathered ideas for decorating my own home while here.) Our room had refreshing AC for the summer visit and a romantic fireplace for winter stays. The front balcony (we had a private entrance from our room) offers lovely views. Mornings bring the smell of fresh baked goods, outstanding coffee and ample food selection in a common room. The inn also has an excellent restaurant for lunch and dinner and a gorgeous bar. I felt relaxed during the visit and refreshed afterward. The town of Essex is only a short, scenic ferry ride from Burlington, VT where we flew in and a great base for travel in the area. I would definately stay here again!
