My husband and I celebrated out 25th anniversary at the Essex Inn. We couldn't have asked for a better place! The innkeepers, Jeremy and Rick were fantastic. Rick was a phenomenal chef. Jeremy was a fantastic host. Charlie, their dog, made it feel like home. We loved the area and the inn was historic, but had all of the comforts anyone would want. They had wine available, coffee, chocolate, munchies, etc. at all times. They knew the area and were so helpful. We will definitely go back.
