Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Essex Village - 1778 Ebenezer Hayden House!

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Walk to Everything, Waterviews

Located at the foot of Main Street directly across from the CT River Museum, the 1778 Ebenezer Hayden House is an historic landmark property published in many books on important Colonial homes in CT. The property is being offered for the first time for limited vacation rentals. The home is furnished with comfortable, high end, luxury appointments and is dog friendly. The yard is fully fenced. This is a classic Colonial which retains many original antique features, but with brand new bathrooms, kitchen appliances and fully modern conveniences! Most rooms have waterviews, all have amazing "historic nautical New England village" views! You will be living directly on the famous Essex Village sidewalk and have direct access to everything this incredible village offers! The Griswold Inn is 3 doors down, 3 yacht clubs and marinas are right around the back - you could not ask for a more convenient, special location. If you are looking for an amazing historical New England experience, there are not many opportunities like you will find at this very special property. If you've been to Essex Village before, you will recognize the 1778 Ebenezer Hayden House as "the big white house with black shutters and white picket fence that has all the flags and patriotic swags throughout the summer" . A special destination for the holidays and other family gatherings. This is an opportunity to step back in time and enjoy the fabulous village of Essex, the history and beauty of the CT River outside your windows, and the wonderful walks awaiting you (and your 4-legged companion) here in this truly magical spot.

Minimum 3-night stay required. No groups. No parties. This is not a "bridal party" or "wedding party" rental. Long term lease - furnished or unfurnished - may be available. Inquire.
