The Inn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate



The Experience

Time. Our youth was filled with it. We endlessly searched for tomorrow, finally arriving where we are today. Life has brought its challenges...and its rewards. Yet, our aspirations continue, and our responsibilities grow. What's next? Probably, an escape.

The Inn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate invites you to return to an age of innocent pursuits. Step into a timeless place of understated elegance and serenity. Located in the heart of the spectacular Crane Estate, enjoy simple, yet luxurious pleasures, and reconnect with what's really important in life. Snug beds, hearty breakfasts, and a warm and generous staff anticipate your arrival.

All the rooms at the Inn are uniquely appointed and many feature stunning views over the salt marshes, sand dunes, and Atlantic Ocean. Though no two rooms are alike, all promise a great night's sleep and the excitement of waking up in the magical world that is Castle Hill.

Take tea on the veranda and gaze across the spectacular coastline. Read quietly upon a sun-bathed window seat. Stroll along the miles of shoreline.

All are part of your stay.
