The Essex Inn on the Adirondack Coast has operated since 1812, when Essex was a thriving town on the shores of vibrant Lake Champlain. Once the expressway between Montreal and New York City, the Lake was the scene of battles fought by Gentleman Johnny Burgoyne, Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold that forged our country's independence.
More than two centuries later, beginning in the spring of 2010, the Inn underwent a top-to-bottom renovation with new electrical and heating systems, plumbing , totally refurbished sleeping rooms, and a state-of-the art commercial kitchen. Today the Inn offers 21st Century comfort and amenities in a charming 19th Century setting.
The Inn sits on the Main Street of Essex, one block from the Essex, NY - Charlotte, VT ferry dock and the waters of Lake Champlain.
