Like a good family recipe, the best vacations are steeped in tradition and full of flavor. Spice up your next getaway at The Griswold Inn in Essex, Connecticut, one of the oldest continuously operated inns in the country and a property well-seasoned in the art of hospitality.

This 33-room inn, hailed by New York Magazine as "the real McCoy," is situated right on Main Street of this quintessential New England town. Rooms are appointed with antique furnishings, including four-poster beds and fine reproductions, with views of charming village life peeking through picture windows. Cozy up to the fireplace at the on-site Tap Room, featured in Esquire's Best Bars in America list.

During the day, savor the shopping on Main Street, or get a dose of culture at the Florence Griswold Museum of American Impressionism. Catch a performance at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, indulge in one of the first-rate services at the Spa of Essex, or just relax with a book by the fire in the inn's common room.

Come dinnertime at the inn, let your taste buds simmer over a selection of seasonal dishes such as seared Stonington sea scallops, braised short ribs of beef, or the signature harvest-Riesling fondue. Wash it down with a selection from the inn's award-winning wine list or a pint of the signature Revolutionary Ale.

You've got all the ingredients for a great Escape––all you need to do is fire up your burner.

  • "Charm, comfort, flawless service, delicious cuisine and absorbing local history are the order of the day in this elegant monument to New England history a short drive from New York City. It's a "must-do" for locals and visitors alike."
