The Inn’s tavern and farm-inspired restaurant is open year round.

Rustic Charm
Dining at the Inn


The Essex Inn’s dining spaces include the tavern and dining area, both with fireplaces and rustic splendor handcrafted by talented Adirondack artisans. Other dining options include The Stables for a private dining experience for up to 14 people. Used as a stable in the nineteenth century, to accommodate horses of inn guests, The Stable has its own wine closet, 19th century Dutch fireplace, and rustic dining table.

During the warmer months, the Inn offers outdoor dining on the front porch overlooking charming Main Street.

Seven Days of Burlington, VT did a feature about living on the lake and the Essex Inn Tavern, the farm powered restaurant was featured.
