Yoga on the Roof

Went for yoga on the roof. It was different and awesome. The views, fresh air and of course, yoga gave a great start to the day. Something every yogi should do at least once!

I visit here a few times a year. They have a number of different tours - check their website to find days & times. Tours range from short and fun (Guest of the Cranes) to more in-depth and informative (e.g., Hot & Cold). Interesting glimpses into the Crane family and their times. If you're not a fan of history or... More

At the end of April, the expansive grounds and beautiful views surrounding the Crane Estate provided a breathtaking approach to the main house. We took the guided tour to learn what life was like for a family member and a guest enjoying a beachside summer vacation in style. Our guide, Robyn, was excellent. She provided many details of daily life,... More

The senior prom for Pentucket Regional High School was held here in 1976 and what a great place to have a prom! I brought my family out to see the estate 40 years later and it is even better than I remembered

Enjoyed the scenic grounds on this sunny. Beautiful vista of the ocean at the end of Grand Allee, wide swath of grass. Row of statutes on either side were covered. Beautiful estate from days gone bye.

We visited this Estate during the month of January. It was cold but you could clearly envision the absolute beauty when the grass is green and the trees are in bloom. The views of the water from this high vantage point are absolutely awesome. Well worth the time to experience the Estate in season.

The setting is beautiful....lush woodlands and gardens, and a magnificent view of salt marshes the ocean. Don't be turned off by the "guided tour." It is an absolute delight.inside the structure there is a little bit for every interest and all but the youngest. Glimpse into the life of an early industrialist and his privileged family. The guides assume a... More
