The intersection of mountains and our vibrant and beautiful lake - ergo, our Adirondack Coast - offers four-season recreational opportunities that are unsurpassed. The Champlain Area Trail System allows guests to walk, cross country ski, mountain bike or snowshoe between our inn and other nearby communities and inns. The lake, with its abundance of trout, salmon, smelt, walleye and bass, is the four-season home to some of the best fresh water fishing in the country.

Within minutes of the Inn you can: visit a local winery, art gallery, museum, or antique shop, enjoy local theater or downhill ski, kayak or sail - the decision is yours. For the latest on what's happening in Essex, visit the community blog at Essex on Lake Champlain.
