The magnificent 2,100 acre Crane Estate preserves one of the region's most scenic, historically important, and ecologically diverse landscapes. Once part of a private seaside estate, the properties of the Crane Estate are all open to the public. The Estate overlooks Steep Hill Beach, a secluded stretch of white sandy beach at the western edge of Crane Beach. There are private lawned areas overlooking the beach suitable for clambakes, barbecues and receptions. Available for day use, the Casino Ballroom is an Italian style villa located just a few hundred feet from breathtaking views of the ocean. The Great House at Castle Hill hosts guided tours and offers a capacity of 200 guests inside and additional tenting for a further 200 guests outside.


Conference and Event Facilities

The Great House offers spectacular views overlooking the beach and winding salt marshes. Steep Hill Beach lawned areas offer a maximum capacity of 400 guests. A picturesque setting for daytime events, the Casino buildings ‑ the Ballroom and the Bachelor Quarters ‑ offer elegance and beauty, all in the midst of the spectacular Crane Estate.
