The Tavern

The Tavern was built by Cornelius Crane as an escape for himself, his friends and his family. The room is built in the style of an old Colonial tavern with wooden beams and columns, an eight-foot working fireplace, suede covered walls and diamond-paned leaded-glass windows. A breathtaking view of the marsh, the woodlands and the Atlantic Ocean awaits you from the Tavern or outside on the terrace.

The Tavern offers an unforgettable, intimate setting for celebrations with friends and family. Overhead lanterns and soft lighting create a warm, inviting environment. The terrace offers an exception vantage point to take in the unspoiled vistas of the Crane Estate. Our staff and hosts offer exceptional service to your guests allowing you to enjoy the gathering you have planned.

For business meetings, the Tavern is a private room which allows creativity to flow. Windows on all sides of the room overlooking the ocean, the marsh and the woodlands provide a wonderful escape from the typical business meeting space. Our staff will attend to your needs with utmost discretion.
