NOT KID FRIENDLY. We were turned away with a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old. Making a reservation by phone for two rooms for two nights before holding a corporate event at The Crate Estate, we were never explicitly told that children under 12 were not allowed at The Inn at Castle Hill. The email confirmation stated: "Children 12 and over are...

I can not say enough about how wonderful this B&B is. We will be back. Great place to relax and clear the mind. The staff was excellent but Nancy was outstanding in everyway. We are thinking of renting the entire rooms for a small reunion.

Inn is just beautiful...everything about it is perfect. Meticulously kept, beautiful inside and out, outstanding service, wonderful breakfast. A perfect place to get away from it all! I highly recommend, but no television in room (if that's a deal breaker).

Our family and friends stayed at the Inn, while attending our daughter's wedding at Castle Hill Crane Estate. It was a great place to gather and spend time with the whole family. It was especially memorable sitting on the big, comfortable porch and talking, playing lawn games and watching the sunrise over the ocean.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
