We stayed at "The Gris" compliments of the management after an unfortunate experience in July 2008. We were completely satified this time with the warm welcome, the spacious, comfortable accommodations, the friendly staff, and the complimentary continental breakfast (fresh fruit, muffins, bagels, a variety of cereals, juice, coffee, teas) served in one of the inn's cozy, rustic dining areas. Essex, a stone's throw from the shoreline, is a wonderful town for strolling and photography. We would not hesitate to recommend The Griswold Inn for a weekend stay or a longer break in this picturesque area of Connecticut.
