Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Essex Village

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in the quintessential historic New England village of Essex, voted Best Small Town in America, this sunny, exquisite cottage is surrounded by world class, exclusive yacht clubs, historic inns, restaurants, boutique shopping, antiques and art galleries, and the finest, quaint nautical atmosphere New England has to offer.

This is an upscale vacation/short term rental -- newer, comfortable furnishings, kitchen appliances, dinner and glassware mixed in with lovely antique pieces add to the New England coastal charm. Bed linens, towels, down pillows - everything is luxury - new comfy plush top beds with down duvets invite blissful sleep and lazy mornings. Stone patio, fenced yard, garage space. Walking distance to marinas, the River Museum, yacht clubs and the entire village of Essex!

Fully fenced private yard to welcome the entire family - 2 legged and 4 legged! The Village of Essex is known for being wonderfully dog-friendly and a very special, picturesque walking destination.

The Cottage is one level and 1000 sf. It is laid out to give privacy and with sliding glass doors and skylights, and high ceilings, it feels much larger! The master bedroom has attached full bath and is off of the living room. There is a plush top queen bed with down duvets and pillows, plush robes, luxury sheets. The 2nd bedroom is at the other end of the house and has its own full bath (toilet & shower) with a door to close this "guest wing" off completely from the rest of the house. All bedrooms have flat screen tvs as well as in living room. Dining room off the kitchen. Wireless internet throughout the house, white slipcovered sofas and chairs in sunny living room. Fully fenced yard.

The decor is high end 'coastal' with light colored antique European country pine, white slipcovers, .....very serene and relaxing but right in the center of it all! A simply gorgeous setting and easy walk to EVERYTHING in this quaint, historic New England nautical village!

It is furnished, again, with Sferra, Peacock Alley, Pinecone Hill, Horchow, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn -- plus antiques. This is not a typical vacation rental by any means........

Tranquility,

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay in your cottage while our home was being renovated. We simply turned the key and walked in! Everything we had at home and "more" was at our fingertips. The cottage is extremely well-appointed, the quiet backyard patio offered views of the Connecticut River, and the fact that shops, restaurants and ice-cream cones were just steps away.... made this a perfect haven. We are residents of Essex and familiar with the area and were so grateful to call this top-shelf "oasis" our home during our recent renovations. This village gem certainly has it all!

Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage by the river along with our two dogs! The cottage is charming and although small, it is filled with beautiful yet comfortable designer furnishings and amenities galore! Everything is right there at your fingertips---the river, the restaurants, the shops. We can't wait to visit again!

Essex Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The town of Essex is one of the most captivating of New England destination spots- They have all sorts of small shops to visit, homemade ice cream, great coffee shops and shopping. I really love the energy of Essex. . Complimenting this experience was my stay at this lovey seaport cottage right off main street. The charming decor, superbly comfortable beds and "everything you can think of" appliances were over-the top. We were able to walk just 2 minutes around the corner to the famous Griswold Inn for dinner, or have a cookout on the cottage patio (great new gas grill!), or just sit out on the back patio and relax. From the silverware to the beautiful linens, the flawless attention to detail made this quaint rental spot one of my favorites – and I travel a lot!!”

Ultra comfort cottage

  • 5 of 5

“Wow! Loved this awesome little cottage – the pictures on the website do not do it justice. Everything is top notch and the owner thought of every little detail to make this the most relaxing vacation we’ve had in years – even our poodle, Toby, didn’t want to leave! If you are looking for a high-end, super comfy place to stay that is clean, easy walking distance to everything and not far from the beach, then the Essex Cottage is for you. We were 2 couples that fell in love with this quaint village and will definitely be renting this place again next year – for hopefully even longer! 5 Stars!”
