Your All-Access Pass to Our Property

On the north shore of Boston, there lies a beautiful 2,100 acre estate surrounded by 4 miles of pristine beach. This is Castle Hill, once the summer country retreat of plumbing magnate Richard Teller Crane and his family and now a historic landmark and coastal haven. We reside on the spectacular Crane Estate encompassing vast marshland, protected beach front, and unspoiled natural forests in Ipswich, Massachusetts.

As our valued guest at our bed and breakfast, you will enjoy full access to this remarkable property. Delight in the tranquil ambiance and discover the hidden treasures of our coastal haven as you explore the pristine beach, wander through the magnificent formal gardens, and admire the grandeur of the historic Great House, where every corner of the estate offers a unique and enchanting experience amidst picturesque landscapes.
