My wife and I enjoyed a brief stay over Labor Day weekend. As others have said, the inn is clean and modern, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the bathrooms are spacious and modern. The porch and lobby offer a variety of seating options, and you get a pass to Crane Beach. No TV in either the rooms or... More

Wonderful property and staff. We had a couple of nice hikes to Crane Beach and the estate next to the inn. Great breakfast in the AM with coffee too!! My wife also signed up for the plein air class coming up in April next year. Wonderful place to paint if you are an artist. Good restaurants in the adjacent towns.

My husband and I needed a peaceful getaway and we found it at the Inn. The room was comfortable and beautifully appointed. Our bathroom was amazing! James and all of the staff were warm, friendly and helpful. Our breakfasts were scrumptious and the grounds were amazing! We loved it so much that we are planning to return. I would highly... More

The Inn at Castle Hill is an example of old world hospitality in the modern day. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating and the rooms and breakfast made the cozy stay a memorable one. Free hybrid bikes & Croquet and lawn bowling available along with free pass to Crane's Beach accented our brief Labor Day Weekend stay ! Encourage... More

Everything I expected starting with a warm personal welcome, details of the stay and a brief walk-about of the pantry where you can grab beverages thru the day and fresh baked afternoon treats. You can tell the staff truly care about being caretakers & stewards - true innkeepers. The inn itself will take you back in time and you can... More

NOT KID FRIENDLY. We were turned away with a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old. Making a reservation by phone for two rooms for two nights before holding a corporate event at The Crate Estate, we were never explicitly told that children under 12 were not allowed at The Inn at Castle Hill. The email confirmation stated: "Children 12 and over are... More

I can not say enough about how wonderful this B&B is. We will be back. Great place to relax and clear the mind. The staff was excellent but Nancy was outstanding in everyway. We are thinking of renting the entire rooms for a small reunion.

Inn is just beautiful...everything about it is perfect. Meticulously kept, beautiful inside and out, outstanding service, wonderful breakfast. A perfect place to get away from it all! I highly recommend, but no television in room (if that's a deal breaker).

Our family and friends stayed at the Inn, while attending our daughter's wedding at Castle Hill Crane Estate. It was a great place to gather and spend time with the whole family. It was especially memorable sitting on the big, comfortable porch and talking, playing lawn games and watching the sunrise over the ocean.

My Mom and I spent a week at the beautiful Inn and had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the quiet of the Inn and exploration of the magnificent estate grounds. Crane Beach is just a few minutes' drive, and gorgeous. With guidance from the knowledgeable (and incredible warm) staff visited we Newburyport and Salem. Both beautiful downtowns with well-preserved historical... More
