Originally planned on staying one night, but once there, it became clear that one night wouldn't be enough. Staff accommodated our request (for an extra night) without any hesitation. Grounds and facilities were very nice and well kept. Bathrooms were clean, but a bit out-dated. Downtown Essex remains "quaint", but is lacking quick serve store (for newspapers, coffee and pastries) and liquor store. Hope to go back, before 2017 boating season ends. Staff was outstanding - and helpful with docking and departing. All-in-all, a great boating destination !!
