Why We Like This Place

• You can celebrate amidst some of the most spectacular scenery in the Northeast. With its windswept salt marsh, miles of barrier beach, and beautiful hilltop mansion, The Crane Estate is an unforgettable destination for your wedding.

• The fairy-tale setting will make you feel like a princess. Have a seaside ceremony at Steep Hill Beach, then host your reception at The Great House, the estate’s castle-like mansion—complete with stunning ocean views and a tentable lawn that extends for a half mile.

• Luxurious accommodations can be exclusively yours at The Inn at Castle Hill. Located in the heart of the Crane Estate, this unique inn is the perfect gathering place for your family. It offers seclusion, comfort and vistas over the marshes, sand dunes, and Atlantic Ocean.
