Essex House & Tavern

Island Pond, VT

Welcome to the Essex House and Tavern! This downtown landmark has undergone major renovations, including restoring the lobby and rooms to its historic grandeur and beauty. The building was constructed in 1866.

One feels like they are stepping back in time when they stay at the Essex House & Tavern, but it has all the modern amentities, including large-screen TVs & Wifi access in every room. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, very clean and capture the character of the era.

The Essex House & Tavern is right across the street from the pond and a walking trail that leads to a sandy and very pretty town beach.

The tavern has also been revitalized and renovated to a vintage, industrial atmosphere. The tavern serves lunch and dinner with a menu that is sure to capture one's taste buds. It includes a full-service bar and features daily specials.
