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. Rebecca Strauss, Music Director, Riverview Chamber Players
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.
