Our Commitment

Serenity. Nature. Reconnecting with the things that matter.

These are just a few of the many benefits that our guests enjoy when staying with us. We are excited to welcome you to our tranquil Inn at Castle Hill. We hope that a visit to our Inn will provide you with the calm retreat we all deserve. The safety and wellbeing of guests and staff is the number one priority. We invite you to review the below measures we are taking to ensure a safe, comfortable and stress-free stay.

Arriving and Checking Out

Masks are optional for vaccinated guests. Only guests with reservations are permitted to enter the Inn and must check in at the Crane Estate front gate. Check Ins will be socially distanced. For checkout, guests will simply leave the key at the front desk and a final invoice will be mailed electronically. Check In (after 3PM) and Check Out (by 11AM) will remain the same. 

Housekeeping & Guest Rooms

We offer daily housekeeping service to multiple night stays. If you would not like our housekeepers to enter your room, please put the provided "Do Not Disturb" Sign on your door. Extra towels, clean linens, robes, and replenished toiletries are also available for room delivery.


Breakfast is from 8am-10am in our dining room. We have added a “Picnic Breakfast Box” option for guests who would prefer to dine outdoors on our porch or our surrounding grounds. Our kitchen will continue to follow all our local health department and state restaurant guidelines surrounding food service.

Please keep in mind that our procedures are subject to change based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control, MA Department of Public Health, American Hotel Lodging Association, and all other applicable government authorities.

We encourage you to reach out to us directly should you have any additional questions or concerns. The inn line is 978-412-2555 and our e-mail theinn@thetrustees.org. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
