This trip was to visit family in the area. It is a lovely property on many manicured acres.
The grounds are very pretty with hammocks placed here and there, and vegetable
gardens behind the outside portion of the restaurant. The indoor pool is a very large lap
pool with a hottub right outside. The outdoor pool is on the smaller side but very nice.
The towels for the pools were plentiful and well placed at poolside.
We received a room upgrade as the hotel was not totally booked. The room was very
attractive and the beds so comfortable. The bathroom was well appointed with nice
toiletries, shower cap, sewing kit, etc. The room had a fireplace and seating area.
The basic room charge was the same as the generic chain hotels. There is a "resort charge" of $20.00 per day. It was so worth it to stay in such a lovely venue. There was
a wedding there and they had perfect outdoor spot at a gazebo with chairs set up on the very green lawn. My family would definitely recommend The Essex Resort
