Ipswich, a suburb of Boston, is the home of Crane Beach, a remarkable, long, wide, sandy beach that is a popular swimming spot in warmer months and a fabulous place to walk in cooler ones. The Inn at Castle Hill is a pleasant old inn less than a mile from the Beach entrance, with glorious salt marshes around most of...

What a great place to stay and explore the area. We were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived by Camille, the Asst. Innkeeper. We stayed in the Winthrop Room on the second floor in the corner. It's well decorated, light and has a gorgeous view of the marsh and ocean. We took many beautiful walks around the huge...

My wife surprised me with a weekend reservation for our wedding anniversary this past July. We spent Friday and Saturday night at the Inn, eating breakfast at the Inn and taking dinner in Ipswich. We had an "estate view" out of the windows (not an ocean view) but since we spent most of our time out of our room, it...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for a Friday and Saturday for my sons wedding in early June. You must stay for two nights minimum. It was quite expensive but the building is beautiful and the wall murals are stunning. The Winthrop Room was very comfortable, bedding was terrific, bathroom very roomy and the views lovely. Breakfast was...

I am in the hospitality Industry so I have to admit that I am extremely fussy and difficult to please. I notice the most obscure details as they glare out at me. I have to say that The Inn at Castle Hill exceeded all my expectations on every level. The service is exemplary, and you are greeted with warmth and...

We were in great need of rest and relaxation and wanted to go someplace special for our anniversary. We could not have picked a better place. This is a gracious, unpretentious and very comfortable inn. It is run with impeccable professionalism by people eager to help you find your way around. The bed and pillows were comfortable, the towels terrific...

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The view from the Inn is incredible. The porch has comfortable seating with views of both the marsh and the ocean. There are plenty of birds to watch, as well. The staff were incredibly kind. They went out of their way to attend to our needs, and to anticipate items that might make...

Growing up just north of Boston, Crane beach was my family's go-to beach since I was 5 or so. Over the 45 years between then and now I've roamed all over the beaches, the Castle Hill grounds, and back when it was ok, the dunes too. My girlfriend and I stayed just one night in the Teller room a few...

I attended a wedding here at the beginning of April and stayed for two nights. The accommodations were so nice and relaxing that it was tough to leave. I'm not a "B&B" guy but the combination of the great room we stayed in and the grounds surrounding the Inn was so spectacular. I grew up very close to this property...

If your dream is to stay in a country Inn, my vote is for The Inn at Castle Hill. The rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. They remind me of the beautiful inns in the English countryside. Located on the Crane estate, you can watch the tides flow in and out twice a day in the salt marshes which...
