All the details totally down, that's the sign of excellence, which is how I'd describe this Lake Champlain area inn, across the lake from Burlington, VT, just a 45 min. ferry ride away. Really did not have time to explore the quaint little town, but our time at the Inn...Room 8...just lovely. The decor is totally Adirondacks, but tweaked with... More

I had a business trip to the area and I was booked into the Inn for two nights. It is an outstanding example of how to do a restoration correctly. The rooms were large and well appointed, and the dining room was very nicely done as was the bar area. The food was superior to any meal I've had in... More

This B&B is so overpriced and not very friendly! We stayed here when we decided to start our vacation a day early and found most places were booked during peak foliage time. The room was clean and simple, but the service and attention to detail was horrible! The breakfast was terrible and we had to hunt for the innkeepers to... More

My family has a long history of spending summers in Essex. On a recent trip with my mother we stayed for two nights at the newly redone Essex Inn. Our room was freshly painted, with a brand new bathroom, and comfortable bed and furniture. Dinner on the front porch was a real treat. The food and service were great. However,... More

The was the last night of our bike trip around Lake Champlain. The Inn is unbelievable. Beautiful in its appearance, the remodeling is spectacular. Every detail was perfect. We got there a little early and they stop what they were doing to let us in. The bed was awesome for that afternoon nap after riding all day. The location is... More

We had a wonderful evening dinning at the Essex Inn. The staff was ver attentive and helpful, food was delicious and atmosphere was lovely. We were also given a tour of a couple of the rooms which were beautifully decorated.

This place is top notch! Rooms are gorgeous, menu was beyond all expectations as well as the food. The atmosphere was great and the service could not have been better. I will definitely be back when I am back in the area visiting!

We stayed at the Essex Inn for an anniversary celebration and it was wonderful! Could not recommend it more. Essex is a quiet, historic town right on the lake. The restaurant at the inn is terrific and the rooms were beautiful!

For the sum of $326, including tax, I reserved what was described as an elegant second floor suite in a. 200 year-old inn that advertised it had a complete renovation in 2010, including 11 brand new sleeping rooms with modern amenities plus an included breakfast for two. The room looked pretty shabby to us, had one window air conditioner for... More

The Inn is a lovely place to stay and has been lovingly renovated - but the piece de resisitence is the amazing food prepared by Chef Keith. Breakfast is a continental spread of homemade pastries as well as fruit and yogurt, but dinner is where Keith truly shines. Every appetizer was amazing, and the toad in the hole or lobster... More
