This was the second year in a row that we stopped at the Griswold Inn and it did not disappoint. Essex is a cute little piece of CT history and the Inn is a central Player in the history of the town. this time, we opted to stay in the annex adjacent to the Inn and the checkin person upgraded us to a mini-suite, complete with a comfy if somewhat time-worn sofa. No TV in the room though I believe there may have been one elsewhere. A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. We ate supper in the Tavern at the Inn, which pours excellent cocktails and offers basic pub food. The Inn has a more formal dining room as well. Parking is on nearby streets. The Inn seems to be very popular with the locals and given the chance, we'll join them there again.
