Absolutely the best through many changes
We had originally planned a 125 person wedding at the Barn. Then, COVID happened and our plans were upended. Maura and her team were wonderful every step of the way. She was incredibly supportive, communicative and flexible as we had to shift our wedding date, location (to the Great House and tent), redo our seating and reduce our numbers multiple times. Crane and Maura went above and beyond to make sure we had the best celebration. The food was delicious, the service was superb and they made sure our wedding was joyous and safe. It's a very personal decision whether to delay your wedding due to the pandemic, but we could not be happier that we celebrated with 40 close friends and family. And, we are forever grateful to Crane and Fireside Catering for supporting us through all the changes and hosting an amazing and happy wedding!Sent on 10/06/2020

Venue is gorgeous. The staff and team are incredible.
The Crane Estate is breathtakingly beautiful. We loved that it felt like we were in Europe, while only having to travel one hour from Boston. Maura and the Fireside Catering team were incredible. They went above and beyond to make sure that we could execute all of the details that we wanted. We were able to customize menu items, bring in specialty foods, and tailor the look of the wedding with a lot of flexibility. Maura made it all happen, graciously working with us via conference calls, extra meetings, and late night e-mails. She was so kind, understanding and professional. We had absolute confidence going into the weekend that the event would run flawlessly, which really is priceless. We cannot recommend this venue and the Fireside Catering team enough!Sent on 10/27/2019

My husband and I were married 8.12.18 at The Crane Estate and it was a dream! We fell in love with the Estate a year earlier when we visited for the first time and planned our ceremony remote (with Detailed Engagements, our amazing wedding planner!). At least in our experience, the wedding booking was through Fireside Catering, the official events partner for The Crane Estate, and we worked with Maura who was absolutely wonderful. Coordinating the details was easy - everything was simple and clearly communicated - from costs for different set-up or food scenarios, to rain contingency plans. Going into the wedding weekend - even with rain forecasted - I had not a care in the world. The rain lifted for our ceremony and thankfully we could enjoy the great lawn - we even had some turkeys make a cameo appearance! The staff couldn't have been more attentive - cups full, plates cleared, and as the bride my "attendant" Heather was always there for me and so kind. The food from Fireside was amazing and even our foodie friends, who can be unfiltered critics, are still raving about the tenderloin filet entree and lobster roll appetizer! Our guests felt spoiled and my husband and I were thrilled to give our friends and family such a magical backdrop to witness our vows and celebrate with us. Thank you, Maura, Fireside, and Crane Estate team!!Sent on 08/20/2018
You can't find a more gorgeous setting than at Castle Hill. To describe the venue as stunning would be a major understatement. Divine, is getting closer and, "It simply takes your breath away" is probably even more accurate. The staff at Castle Hill is wonderful, easy to work with, incredibly helpful, always kind, and totally on the ball. It is an honor to play classical music at Castle Hill. This Castle was meant for beautiful classical music and we are so happy to bring it to all the many clients and their guests who have their event there.

The Crane Estate is one of our favorite New England venues for weddings — with the historic Great House located on Castle Hill and sweeping lawns, all just steps away from the ocean, its a perfect backdrop for our photography! Not only is the venue so unique and beautiful, the staff is amazing! Everyone at the Crane Estate is friendly, professional and goes above and beyond for their clients as well as the vendors!
Castle Hill is one of our most favorite venues to work at in all of New England. Not only is the Castle beautiful, but also the setting is unique and private - and their staff is absolutely amazing! The team at Castle Hill consists of all true professionals. They are experienced, accommodating and very involved. For larger events, the tent off the side of the Castle works really well and allows for all of the guests to be seated in the same area. Many of our weddings have been under a tent there and all have turned out beautifully.
