The town landing, once used by returning vessels to offload their precious cargo, still retains that “old world” ambience with its views of heavily wooded Eustacia and Selden Islands, and a lack of commercial development. Adding to the area’s “old-world” feel is the Essex Steam Train, which runs past Deep River, and the riverboat Becky Thatcher, which offers sightseeing tours along the Connecticut.

I stayed at the Brewers there one night in 2009

Thank you, Soundbounder!
Just what we need as the season comes to an end...something to occupy our time planning and looking ahead to next season.
Sounds like a nice sleepy destination?? Were you there in peak season?
weekday/weekend? Any decent anchorage/crowded?
Have only gone up Ct. River to Essex and Hamburg Cove in late September
for fear of overcrowding in peak season.
Looks like a great reason to explore a few more miles north.

I've taken spring and fall trips up the river (give the engine a light workout and a freshwater rinse). Once went up to Portland; the other times I turned around at East Haddam / Goodspeed Opera House. I had a mooring one night at the Brewers in Deep River.

In East Haddam, you can anchor south of the bridge, east of the channel. Not as nice as Hamburg Cove, but the village and opera house are worth a visit.

Chester and Deep River are nice, especially in September/Oct.
