The Essex Inn on the Adirondack Coast has undergone a total renovation that has transformed this nearly 200-year old landmark into the crown jewel of the Lake Champlain region. In the spring of 2011, the Inn's seven beautifully refurbished rooms - two of which are suites - began welcoming guests. In May, 2013, two new rooms will be available at the Inn: Room 9 is a two-story suite with queen bed on the second floor and sleeper sofa in a beautifully appointed sitting room that has direct access to Church Street on the south side of the Inn. Room 8 on the second floor offers twin beds amidst Adirondack rustic decor.
Additional accommodations are available a half block south of the Inn at 2310 Main Street. This 1600 square-foot, second-floor space offers the Lakeview Suite and the Adirondack Trail Room. The Lakeview Suite has two bedrooms, bathroom, and large living, kitchen, dining area and lakeside deck -- all fully equipped and beautifully appointed in rustic design -- overlooking Essex Harbor. Available separately, the Trail Room’s woodsy Adirondack theme greets guests with classic rustic-style furnishings, queen bed and large, tiled bathroom with exquisite vanity.
