One of the oldest continuously operating inns in the country,  The Griswold Inn opened its doors for business in 1776 and has been catering to yachtsmen and overland travelers ever since. Situated in the historic hamlet of Essex and nestled on the banks of the Connecticut River, The Griswold Inn is a very special place. Although the Inn exudes the charm of a day gone by, it is anything but dated. From its sophisticated cuisine, extensive wine offerings, comfortable accommodations and free wi-fi, it offers the best of times.
