We stayed 2 nights with 2 rooms for part of our group tied to graduation at Connecticut College in New London. We enjoyed a party for 14 in the garden followed by dinner in an elegant, understated room with some of the BEST food that we've all ever witnessed, and this was a group of well-traveled foodies. Service was stupendous...

What a beautiful property. The food is very well prepared. The service is very attentive without being intrusive. We were fortunate to be able to tour some of the guest rooms. They are nice sizes and very well appointed.

We spent two nights here while our son was performing in "Biloxi Blues" at the Ivoryton Playhouse. We were warmly greeted on arrival and provided with the keys to Room 218 in the Carriage House. The Inn is a historic property that has been nicely cared for. Our comfortable room was spacious and situated in a corner of the building...

We love it here! We have stayed in the Comstock house twice now & really love the rooms. The tubs are big and the beds are comfortable. We got a $100 towards dinner and free breakfast. The breakfast is great b/c you go into the main house and order off a menu. Perfect for people that find the traditional B&B...

We've been to the Copper Beech several times and have rated it highly before. We have always stayed at the Comstock House which we really like-- very comfortable. We want to pass along to others to try one of the packages offered by the inn. We recently celebrated a birthday by using the Winter Wonderland package consisting of Superior Delux...

rented 3 rooms for extended family - and enjoyed dinner as well. Very friendly staff and terrific village with Essex nearby for shopping and walking. Also close by is the Essex steam truing which was a great hit with grandchildren.

The Copper Beech Inn is a warm, beautiful old inn and a great stop for a romantic dinner for two. Please note that Tripadvisor lists the Inn as a B&B, and gives little note to its restaurant, which in my opinion is a disservice to this fine eatery. My wife and I love to have our Valentine's dinner there, and...

My family lives in Essex so when I visit, my friends and I meet at the bar at Copper Beech Inn. It's a warm, cozy bar, with a fun cocktail list (which seemed a bit summery given it was December when I last visited) and also a happy hour! When the bartenders aren't busy, they take the time to chat...

Perfect accommodations. We were in a separate building that was tastefully furnished and absolutely immaculate. We had dinner at the Inn restaurant and it was phenomenal; great food tastefully prepared. Breakfast next morning was great. We will definitely come back here again.

Went there for New Years Day brunch and it was kind of pretentious and amateurish for sixty five dollars per person.I go to high end places very often who charge that amount but they deliver high end fare not diner stuff.Plus the choices were very limited.Won't go back for that kind of event.
