Each day the Great House is open during our main season we offer at least one specialty tour. Our three specialty tours are listed below. Please note, the schedule is subject to change. Please call to confirm the day's schedule.

All tour tickets are sold day of on the ground floor of the Great House. We recommend arriving a minimum of 30 minutes before your preferred tour to attain a spot.

Cupola with a View - This is our most Instagram-able tour experience, available for Labor Day! Designed to showcase the highlights of the house, you’ll get to see original Crane plumbing, learn the history of the property beyond the Crane family, peek into servant life in the house, but most importantly – you will get to step out onto the roof!

Runs Tuesday - Sunday at 11:30 AM, Saturday & Sunday at 1:30 PM. (Starts April 18)

Help Wanted: Becoming a Servant at Castle Hill - Mrs. Crane is looking for servants to help her with the daily operations at the Great House in 1929. You have come highly recommended by the Vanderbilts and have been invited for a tour, with a member of staff, before your final interview. Learn about your many duties and responsibilities while seeing the “downstairs” spaces and hearing what it is like to be a servant of the well-to-do Crane Family.

Runs Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 1:30 PM. (Starts May 19)

Highlights on the Hill - Join us for a leisurely tour of the Castle Hill grounds from our comfy electric golf cart. You will hear the rich history of the estate while enjoying the breathtaking views of the gardens, marsh, and water. This is the perfect way to get a comprehensive overview before diving in for more.

Runs Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 1:00 PM & 2:00 PM. Runs Saturday and Sunday at 12:00 noon. (Starts May 23)

When
Tuesday, June 30
