Filling some time while visiting Cape Ann, we made an impromptu decision to visit The Crane Estate, especially as we knew we could walk the grounds. We started with the Great House aka "The Castle" built in the late 1920s for Richard Crane and his wife Florence. (He amassed a fortune through his R.T. Crane company that made brass plumbing fixtures.) Most interesting might be that this was the Cranes' summer home where they visited for only a couple months each year. We walked about the first floor where you can see what the interior might have looked like one; most of the furnishings were not present. There is a guided tour which includes the 2nd floor, where the rooms are furnished as it once was in the Cranes' time. We strolled about the grounds, enjoying the Grand Allee, a huge green space with statuary lining each side; the beautiful formal Italian garden designed by the Olmsted Brothers; the Rose Garden; and the Italian Renaissance Casino complex. We walked along other paths (using a map provided upon paying admission) thinking we could walk to the beach (later learned that is not allowed; maybe the map should mark off-limit paths) and saw some of the farm buildings. It was an enjoyable 90-minute visit.

Need ideas on your next day trip? Check out Ipswich, located in the North Shore area.

My friend came from out of state and we visited Castle Hill, which is a Tudor Revival mansion. We did a tour to learn the history of the mansion and those who used to reside. The location is beautiful and you can see the ocean in the distance. The gardens are well maintained and just amazing. Great for photo ops 😉

We visited the estate based on a recommendation by our daughter. She had not been in the mansion but said great things about the grounds. We pre-purchased their standard mansion tour. Simply said it was excellent. Our tour guide Lisa was superb. The tour is based on the premise that you are visiting in 1929. Lisa was very knowlegable and really made the place come to life. You really feel like you got to know the Cranes and how they lived. It was clear she very much enjoyed her job. It was the highlight of our visit. But visiting you have to explore the grounds too. If you are up for a 1 mile walk (round trip) definitely walk the 1/2 mile distance on the Grand Allee to the shore line where you get to look down onto Ipswich Bay. There is no restaurant so we brought our own picnic lunch. There is plenty of seating on the grounds where you can find a beautiful place to eat your lunch. We hope to visit again soon to take another one of the tours.

We enjoyed visiting the estate. Very beautiful and the grounds are immaculant. The staff dressed in time period attire was a nice surprise. The only thing missing, in my opinion, was someone to give an overview of the estate and the movies that were filmed there. I think that would be a nice addition.

What a lovely estate. We took the 11:00 tour on June 14. When we entered, we were given a character that we would play. We were then introduced to our guide. Olga, the chambermaid was wonderful. We toured the estate and Olga explained what we were seeing and how the Cranes lived. Beautiful house. After the house tour, we wandered the amazing grounds. This was my first visit but it certainly will not be my last.

We did the Behind the Scenes tour and the Castle Guest tour. We had a mild snafu with our reservations being changed, which was annoying. That said, Jack led our Behind the Scenes tour, which was very interesting and took you places you would not be able to see on a self-guided tour. Jack said he had about ten hours of facts in his head, and he did. He loves the history of the house and it shows. The Castle Guest tour was led by “Anna” a chambermaid (Olga in present time). You are presented with a “guest” card for the tour, which is a historical person who would have been a guest of the Cranes. Olga was good, but this tour took us to a lot of the same places we visited with Jack, and the “guest of the Cranes” shtick got a little old. In the end, I felt like there were rooms we didn’t see, so I wish I had just taken the self-guided tour rather than spending the hour pretending to be a guest. I’m not sure if you are able to actually go into the rooms on a regular self-guided tour. If you are not, then definitely pay for the guided tour. There’s a very nice gift shop, restrooms and you can bring a lunch and eat anywhere outside, which we did. Depending on which tours you take, plan to spend 2-3 hours at least here.

NO DOGS! Even if they stay in thr car, they do not allow dogs on the property period. I understand they are a wildlife conservation group, but a dog in a car shouldn't be a problem. We didn't even make it past the front gate since our dogs were sitting in the back seat.

Expensive tours, but worth it. Step into 1928 and see this wonderful home. The staff are well versed in the history of the people and the estate.

We did not notice this on Trip Advisor or different publications, but we are so happy a fellow traveler told us about the Crane Estate. Known for originally designing bathrooms, the Crane family has a fascinating history, and their great house is amazing and loaded with beautifully designed bathrooms. The tours are so creative. We selected the basic tour of the house plus history of the family. We got to select a card that described an historic guest who visited the Cranes and portrayed that guest on the tour. What a great way to experience the house and the family. The maids and butlers (tour guides) all remain in character and are dressed in period clothes. Our butler was dressed in a tuxedo. When the tour concluded, we were treated to a beverage (a non-alcoholic drink served in a champagne glass on a silver tray) while we got to ask questions to our docent as he stepped out of character. This was a classy, refined, and very enjoyable experience. Don’t miss the gift shop, and ask about the relationship of Chevy Chase to the Cranes.
