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 stunning hilltop mansion, The Crane Estate is an unforgettable destination for your wedding.
  • The fairy-tale setting will make you feel like a princess. Have your ceremony on the lawn overlooking the half-mile-long Grand Allée with sweeping views to the ocean. For the cocktail hour, you have exclusive use of the Allée Terrace in addition to the first floor of The Great House, where guests can mingle throughout the historic mansion.
  • Dinner is served in a beautiful high-peaked tent, positioned adjacent to the mansion, just off the ballroom's East Terrace. As they dine and dance, guests will enjoy the estate's breathtaking landscape throughout the evening. An inn on the property is available for overnight accommodations.
