It's about time.

Time. Our youth was filled with it. We endlessly searched for tomorrow, finally arriving where we are today. Life has brought its challenges...and its rewards. Yet, our aspirations continue, and our responsibilities grow. What's next? Probably, an escape.

The Inn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate invites you to return to an age of innocent pursuits. Step into a timeless place of understated elegance and serenity. Located in the heart of the spectacular Crane Estate, enjoy simple, yet luxurious pleasures, and reconnect with what's really important in life. Snug beds, hearty breakfasts, and a warm and generous staff anticipate your arrival.

All the rooms at the Inn are uniquely appointed and many feature stunning views over the salt marshes, sand dunes, and Atlantic Ocean. Though no two rooms are alike, all promise a great night's sleep and the excitement of waking up in the magical world that is Castle Hill.

Take tea on the veranda and gaze across the spectacular coastline. Read quietly upon a sun-bathed window seat. Stroll along the miles of shoreline.

All are part of your stay.

Whatever your pleasure, we will help you find it.

The Tavern was built by Cornelius Crane as an escape for himself, his friends and his family. The room is built in the style of an old Colonial tavern with wooden beams and columns, an eight-foot working fireplace, suede covered walls and diamond-paned leaded-glass windows. A breathtaking view of the marsh, the woodlands and the Atlantic Ocean awaits you from the Tavern or outside on the terrace.

The Tavern offers an unforgettable, intimate setting for celebrations with friends and family. Overhead lanterns and soft lighting create a warm, inviting environment. The terrace offers an exception vantage point to take in the unspoiled vistas of the Crane Estate. Our staff and hosts offer exceptional service to your guests allowing you to enjoy the gathering you have planned.

For business meetings, the Tavern is a private room which allows creativity to flow. Windows on all sides of the room overlooking the ocean, the marsh and the woodlands provide a wonderful escape from the typical business meeting space. Our staff will attend to your needs with utmost discretion.

Celebrate your special day amidst some of the most spectacular scenery in the Northeast. With its windswept salt marsh, miles of barrier beach, and beautiful hilltop mansion, The Crane Estate is an unforgettable destination for your wedding, whether it's a large affair or an intimate gathering.

When you choose the Great House on Castle Hill, you have exclusive use of an elegant seaside mansion, set dramatically atop a hill overlooking Crane Beach and Crane Wildlife Refuge. The sweeping half-mile-long Grand Allée makes a stunning backdrop for your event.

If you've always dreamed of saying "I do" with sun, sand, and surf as your setting, then choose Steep Hill Beach for a seaside ceremony. Two private lawns overlooking the Atlantic provide the perfect spot for a reception to remember.

For a more intimate setting, consider the Casino Complex, an Italian-style villa located along the Grand Allée, where you can host up to 80 guests.
