This ten room bed and breakfast is a slice of heaven. From Sunrise over the beach to sunsets over the marsh, you'll feel your spirits lift. Setting is 5 star ... acres of conservation land outside every window.

This has to be one of the most magical places to stay on the E Coast. It is in a beautiful setting, every room is unique and the house is graciously furnished with antiques and the entire service team is warm and welcoming. We travel extensively and the Inn is now one of my favorite spots in the country.

This was our second stay at the Inn. Exactly 4 years ago, we had our first weekend away as a couple there, and had such a memorable, romantic experience, we decided to do it again. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, with a gorgeous roaring fire to greet us in the living room. I can't say enough about the...

The Inn at Castle Hill is one of our favorite places to unwind. It is beautifully situated with views of the ocean, Crane Beach, and the marsh. It is quiet, and it has no TVs or telephones. There is a working fireplace in the common room which is wonderful on cold winter evenings. Breakfasts are gourmet and excellent. Service is...

A birthday gift, the Inn was a delight. The Inn is set on the historic Crane Estate. After a fascinating, educational tour of the Estate, the picturesque Inn provided a beautiful relaxing way to end the day.
