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

My spouse and I have loved visiting gorgeous Crane Beach for decades. We always stop there for an afternoon on our way from Boston to a summer home in New Hampshire. We decided to book a room at the Inn at Castle Hill this year to fully enjoy one of our favorite spots for more than that afternoon. And our... More

We enjoyed 3 nights at the relaxing Inn. It was an amazing, rejuvenating experience/ The salt air , view of marshes and the Atlantic, the elegant room, and gracious personnel were tops. Special thanks to Tim O'Rioden for texting his Dad to make an important Berkshires connection for us. Breakfast is delicious . Our favorite spot was the breezy porch... More

This is one of the most beautiful places near Boston that is just wondrous perfection for that special get away. Suited best to classic tastes. I recommend this for couples or singles who want a quiet place to take in the sweeping marshes and hills, and the most beautiful beach in the Northeast--walking distance. I just love the Crane's Beach... More

Just returned from a lovely little get-away at the Inn at Castle Hill in Ipswich, MA. Located on the Crane Estate, it couldn't be more beautiful, serene or relaxing. The rooms are absolutely beautifully decorated and pristine, the staff so kind and helpful and the building and grounds are perfection. Having the Crane Mansion open to both tour and then... More

This past weekend, my husband and I returned to one our favorite places to stay and relax....The Inn at Castle Hill in Ipswich. From the moment we drove onto the property, there was a calm that surrounded us. There is a beautiful view from the porch and a row of rocking chairs looking out at it waiting for guests to... More

My wife and I can't say enough good things about the Inn at Castle Hill. The vibe is relaxed and casual, framed by understated elegance. Everything is beautifully tasteful, practical and comfortable. The inn staff are friendly and extremely helpful -- accommodating without being intrusive or obsequious. They are very knowledgeable about the region -- from restaurants and coffee houses,... More

You need to come to a place of silence, no tech overload (yes your cell phone and tablet work here, but really, put it away, that email from the boss can wait!!!!), walk an unspoiled beach for miles, treck over the hill to walk around the spectacular grounds of the Crane's Mansion at Castle Hill, cuddle up with a great...

This ten room bed and breakfast is a slice of heaven. From Sunrise over the beach to sunsets over the marsh, you'll feel your spirits lift. Setting is 5 star ... acres of conservation land outside every window. Including the spectacular Crane Estate property, the Manor house on the hill along with the gardens, and walkable trails down to the... More

This has to be one of the most magical places to stay on the E Coast. It is in a beautiful setting, every room is unique and the house is graciously furnished with antiques and the entire service team is warm and welcoming. We travel extensively and the Inn is now one of my favorite spots in the country.
