Circa 1680. Experience true first period colonial living with a few modern amenities at one of the oldest homes in Essex County. The William Haskell House is a rare vertical plank home and has had minimal renovations since originally constructed. Electricity has been added, yet few lights are used in order to preserve the historic ambiance. The two bedrooms boast reproduction beds with queen-sized memory foam mattresses juxtaposed to original flooring and exposed beam or wooden ceilings. Each bedroom is in close proximity to a private bath. Guests share all six rooms of the ORIGINAL house. A television is available by request. Guests will share access to all six rooms of the house including the parlor, hall, lean-to, and the microwave and refrigerator in the kitchen. Guests may request a catered meal plated on reproduction 18th-Century pewter and served in front of one of the five working fireplaces.

A Unique Step Back In Time

Staying in the William Haskell House is a unique step back in time. Our stay at this wonderful early New England home was nothing short of amazing. We have collected 17th and 18th antiques for over 40 years. To be able to stay in such a pure and reel New England homestead was a thrill. The home and its authentic furnishings lets one actually live in the 17th and 18th century moments. The innkeeper was extremely cordial and accommodating. This home's setting and ambiance is beyond any other historic home where we have stayed. If you have a passion for the early New England lifestyle and antiques, you will not be disappointed. In a word, wonderful! Kindly, Bill and Judy Castor
