Weddings and Events at The Crane Estate

Steep Hill Beach

Schedule a day at Steep Hill Beach on the Crane Estate for fun in the sun. This secluded stretch of white sandy beach at the western edge of Crane Beach is the perfect destination for your company’s summer outing, private family function, or a day of wedding bliss. 

You can have a clambake or barbecue, play volleyball, kayak, build sandcastles, swim or just plain relax. From the lawn area, you'll enjoy beautiful views of Plum Island and the Atlantic, and you'll have direct access to Steep Hill Beach. From there, you can explore Cedar Point marshes along Fox Creek and Crane Beach dunes. History buffs can also tour of the spectacular 59-room Great House during your visit during regular tour hours.
