The Inn at Castle Hill is one of our favorite places to stay. The picturesque setting by the sea is beautiful and there are scenic walking paths throughout the property that we really enjoy. The rooms are charming and the beds are very comfortable. We love the peaceful, quiet atmosphere and the warm, welcoming staff always make us feel at home.

The Inn at Castle Hill is one of our favorite places to unwind. It is beautifully situated with views of the ocean, Crane Beach, and the marsh. It is quiet, and it has no TVs or telephones. There is a working fireplace in the common room which is wonderful on cold winter evenings. Breakfasts are gourmet and excellent. Service is spectacular - it's like having your very own servants, concierge, and welcoming friends. It is expensive, but the profit goes to The Trustees of Reservations, so you are supporting conservation while in the lap of luxury.

Crane Beach and the Great Salt Marsh are natural treasures of Massachusetts. You can walk to the beach from the Inn, or drive to the parking lot where you are closer to 4 more miles of beach and dunes. The dunes have walking trails, and you can wear yourself out for 7 or 8 miles if you feel up to it. My favorite place is the small pitch pine forest not far from the parking lot. It is magical.

You can also tour the Crane Estate and castle, and enjoy Frederick Law Olmsted's landscaping, which is pretty good, except that he planted Norway maples, which we now know are invasive. The European beeches behind the Inn are spectacular.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. There is one handicapped accessible room on the first floor.

Beautiful Inn. We always love staying here. Staff very friendly and accommadating. Clean, comfortable rooms. Short walk to the beach. Close to Ipswich, Rockport and Newburyport. One of my favorite places to stay on the New England coast.

A birthday gift, the Inn was a delight. The Inn is set on the historic Crane Estate. After a fascinating, educational tour of the Estate, the picturesque Inn provided a beautiful relaxing way to end the day.

Room Tip: The Florence room has a beautiful view

My husband and I hosted a luncheon at The Tavern at the Inn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate during a full day tour of sights outside of Boston for a group of former executives of a major oil company. The Tavern was absolutely perfect, not only for its rustic ambiance and fantastic views, but also because of the incredible attention we received from Camilla Eagan, the Inkeeper at the Inn, in planning our event. While none of our guests stayed at the Inn, itself, we got a chance to see the Inn (along with the mansion and the property). The Inn is beautiful and charming, with spectacular views. I'm hoping to return there someday as a guest with my husband. The entire estate, including the Inn, is definitely worth a visit, and it's perfect for a great weekend get-away. I recommend you visit the website to get a flavor of the Crane Estate at Castle Hill and the Inn . Beautiful.
