Who We Are

Dear Valued Guests,

The Essex Street Inn is nestled in the heart of historic downtown Newburyport, Massachusetts. Moments away from both casual and elegant dining, the famous waterfront, and unique shops, the Essex Street Inn is the perfect coastal New England getaway.

We invite you to walk the streets of a traditional New England seaside town, explore the rolling sand dunes at Plum Island and indulge yourself in the finest cuisine.

Whether you visit for a night or a week, we'll make sure you feel right at home at the Essex Street Inn.

Your gracious innkeepers,

Lori and John Guertin

Message from the Manager

For many years I have been welcoming guests to the Essex Street Inn. And in that time I have had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful and interesting people from around the country and around the world. That's why I look forward to coming to work every day. I never know who I will meet. One thing I do know is this... I'll welcome you in the same way I do family, because that is how we do things here at the Essex Street Inn. Hopefully, we'll have the chance to meet really soon.

Until then, be well...

Best Regards,

Kathy Ross
