We came for a quick get away. Our room was spacious and clean, the front desk was friendly, and we all enjoyed the breakfast. It was also nice to have dining, shops, and playground right there. We will definitely stay again!

What a wonderful intimate, welcoming, home-like lodging to spend the night! The bed was a dream! Everything was so cozy and beautifully decorated! And then there was breakfast!! The BEST!! There were delicious donuts, yummy homemade breakfast egg-sausage casserole and even waffles!! So much better than continental breakfasts at the chain hotels!! Staying at the Essenhaus is a awesome adventure! It is a destination on its own!

Such a beautiful bite and great bakery!

The property was very clean and pleasant. My husband really enjoyed sitting by the fire pit. The beds could have been lower.

It is a beautiful facility. Staff was not knowledgeable about dining establishments. Seemed more interested in talking to each other at one point than helping us. We went down for breakfast on day of leaving, and our key card would not work to let us back into our room.

Beautiful hotel with lovely decor. Loved all the nooks and seating areas to get away and read by the fireplace. Beautiful clean room, comfortable beds, nice hot breakfast with many choices. Loved the game room and lounge area in the pool/hot tub area.

The room was very clean. The breakfast had a lot of choices even during this pandemic, but everything was taken care of safely by even the guests wearing gloves.

The rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was very good with a lot of food choices. The walking paths near the property made for a nice nightly stroll.
