Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2014


Sunday - Thursday

November 3rd through December 23rd *

Get in the holiday spirit, enjoy your shopping and relax in the process! Sound like a paradox? Not so! We are offering this very special deal for 7 weeks beginning the first Sunday in November and running right through December 23rd! Essex is particularly enchanting at this time of year. The "Rockwellian vibe" is in the air and it's a charming time to leisurely stroll our decorated Main Streets and shop for family, friends and, perhaps, yourself. When the shopping is done, indulge in a luxurious treatment at the spa to unwind and get ready for holiday festivities ahead.

Enjoy a stay in one of our charming standard rooms, Sunday through Thursday, for just $130* - shop, spa and save! A continental breakfast for two is also included with your stay.

The Griswold Inn Store ~ Goods & Curiosities plus 4 other local shops and The Spa of Essex are presenting offers available exclusively to our hotel guests.
