Stayed here because it was close to the North Pole Express steam train in Essex, CT. When we checked it the first thing we noticed were the beautiful view of the water. Too bad it was winter so we were unable to walk on the beach. Food was delicious and fresh! Can't wait to come back in the summer.

I took my family to Water's Edge Restaurant for Sunday Brunch. The brunch had many choices to choose. There were 3 carving stations, a pasta station, and a crepe station. Many breads/bagels to choose from. The staple breakfast items (eggs, sausage links, bacon, roasted potatoes). Fresh fruit. Several cold salads. Salmon. Delicious hot selections (beef, sliced pork, chicken). And a...

We stayed over on a Saturday night as we were traveling in the area. Driving up it looks very nice. Walking inside we were impressed by the beautiful views of the Sound. They were crazy busy as they were hosting at least two weddings. We went to our room in another building. No view, dingy and had a powerful antiseptic...

We have stayed and dined at this property many times throughout the years and still keep going back. This resort has a combination on hotel and timeshare accommodations. The hotel is large with nicely appointed rooms in the main section and hotel style rooms in the attached section. The timeshare villas are spacious and exist all around the main building....

We took a family trip to the east coast and this was by far my favorite place that we stayed at. The views are just beautiful. While the hotel itself is old, the resort is just amazing! The grounds and the atmosphere are just refreshing. I sat and drank coffee on the veranda and felt like I was in a...

After reading several negative reviews on Facebook & Trip Advisor, we were a bit reluctant to eat @ the hotel restaurant & called around to several local eateries to find nothing open for Christmas dinner. Left with no choice,we gave it a try. Not only was the atmosphere completely breathtaking, all the staff was attentive & friendly, the food was...

I took two of my sisters and two of my nieces here to celebrate my birthday and it was so well worth it! We really relaxed and just hung out! The people that worked there were wonderful! The only negative was the pool had lots of kids but the advertising said it was the hotel's pool so I expected it....

Place was excellent. Located within 20 miles each way from our favorite stores. I would have given 5 stars except no wifi available (They said it was So So in our Condo). That needs addressing because we took this trip to relax and email friends and shop on line. We do 90% of our shopping on line to stay out...

This hotel aims at being a "resort and spa", but it is at a Holiday Inn level. There are places on the East Coast that are not Four Seasons style of luxury, but rather "old charm" with dated decor, etc. (for example, Mohonk and similar places in upstate NY), and I guess this is what Water's Edge tries to emulate....
