Griswold Inn

Essex, Connecticut


Number of Rooms: 34 The Griswold Inn is defined by its uniqueness, and the guest rooms are no exception. There are 34 charming guest accommodations, no two exactly alike. Most are furnished with antiques, period reproductions and Leonard’s Beds - yes, the same Leonard’s that has supplied a bed or two to The White House. Some of the accommodations have fireplaces, some have views of “village life” and some boast glimpses of water. All have private baths and free wireless internet access. A complimentary continental breakfast is also included.
