Shea’s Riverside Inn and Motel
132 Main Street, Essex, MA 01929
The Essex river slowly winds its way through the salt marshes that surround Shea’s Riverside Inn & Motel (formerly the Essex River House Inn & Motel), inviting you to stop and stay a while.
Take a deep breath, look around and spend some time in our little slice of paradise.
Whether you are looking for a place to stay for a local wedding, a convenient location to host visiting family members or a romantic getaway for two – Join us at Shea’s Riverside Inn & Motel.
Located on the banks of the Essex River, the entire property is truly breathtaking year-round. In warm months sea birds frequent the salt marshes across from the property, and in the colder months the river is often home to seals and sea otters!
Shea’s Riverside Inn & Motel is home to 21 rooms in two distinct buildings.
