Castle Hill at the Crane Estate (everything you want to know)
Ipswich, Essex Co., Massachusetts
This estate is where my husband likes to visit the most, as a matter of fact, he took me here almost 50 years ago. We subscribe to the organization, Trustees of Reservations, that maintains the house, thus, free admission. If the house isn't open for touring, you usually can walk the grounds any time. You may have seen the mansion in a movie before.
After these photos, there are two links, each for a year we went to see the house decorated at Christmas.
From this point, you can walk straight down to the ocean.
