ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE: Check-in time is 3 p.m., and check-out is 11 a.m. Let us know if you need to make alternate arrangements for your arrival or departure times.

CANCELLATIONS: Because the Essex Inn has only 11 rooms/suites, cancellations affect us dramatically. We require 30 days notice for cancellation. Cancellations made more than 30 days in advance of the arrival date will be fully refunded minus a $75 processing fee. For cancellations made within the 30 day period, we regret that no refund will be issued unless we are able to secure another reservation for the room. In this case, the processing fee will still apply.

If smoking occurs, there will be a $250 cleaning fee added to your invoice. The adjacent Stone Church is also smoke-free.
