My wife and I like the Crane Hill Inn very much. Room was nicely decorated and clean. Not over furnished but tasteful traditional, New England, minimalist / shaker feel. Nothing fancy just right. Felt very peaceful in such a pretty retreat location which was good for fresh air and walking. The main house is stunning as is the long beach....

Spent a Friday night in the Burnham suite, which sleeps two in a double bed plus a third in a very comfortable day bed *in another room with its own bathroom*. Much cheaper than two rooms. On the third floor, but the stairs are easy, even for a 78-year-old. The views from the suite are spectacular. Short breakfast menu but...

We spent the night after our Cape Ann wedding at the Inn. The entire experience could not have been more perfect. We were upgraded to a beautiful room (Florence) because the innkeeper told us that that room had a view of Halibut Point State Park, where we had just been married. What a gift! Every detail in the room was...

We were the best man and maid of honor in a wedding at the barn this past weekend and we booked a 2 night stay at the Inn so that we would be able to stay on the property. The inn has a 2 night minimum which was slightly disappointing to me, only because the rehearsal dinner was about an...

Stilness, exceptional natural beauty including the beautiful Crane Beach, superior hospitality, elegant simplicity. Nothing beats the Crane Estate and the Inn at Castle Hill for a quiet getaway, within an hour's drive of Boston .

We recently stayed with the Inn for a wedding that was being held at the Castle Hill Estate and felt right at home. A short walk from the beach with a large front porch, it was no surprise how easy it was for us to relax. The breakfast was also quite yummy.

I love the Inn at Castle Hill. It is a lovely house with wraparound veranda to sit and enjoy the view of salt marshes and ocean. It is just the kind of coastal New England getaway spot one dreams of! And, it is delightful in all seasons. In summer, you can walk or drive just a few minutes down to...

For several years we looked at the pictures of the Inn at Castle Hill and told ourselves that this would be a great place to get away. We finally decided to go for it to celebrate our anniversary. It was everything we hoped for and then some. You can take a look at the little things and tell the good...

The setting is magical, the inn is stylish comfortably stylish, the staff is friendly, professional and caring! This was our sixth visit and each has been wonderful. Can't decide which are more beautiful - the sun rises from our room or the sunsets from the grounds. The grounds offer amazing walking opportunities through woodlands and dunes, or on the beach....

In Sept. of 2014 we were on vacation in Mass, staying at our timeshare in Bentley Brook. We decided to leave a few days early and travel to Western Mass. We googled Bed and Breakfasts in Worchester, Mass and found The Inn at Castle Hill and we found a GEM! Upon our arrival we were able to choose our own...
