 Stopping at Castle Hill at the Crane Estate in Ipswich MA. We will tour this magnificent 59 room oceanside estate. Then explore the gardens and landscape with commanding views of the Atlantic including the 1/2-mile rolling lawn to the ocean. A $1.5 million renovation and restoration of landscape was just completed.

 Then it’s on to nearby Essex for lunch located high on a bluff with panoramic views of the Essex River and historic Essex.

 After lunch we will board the Essex River Queen docked right in back. Enjoy a cruise on the scenic meandering Essex River teaming with wildlife. Cruise past islands, historic estates and shipyards.

The Grand Allée on the Crane Estate has captivated generations of visitors for nearly a century. This half-mile-long, 100-foot-wide stretch of turf, bordered by two rows of trees, connects the Great House on Castle Hill to a cliff overlooking the beach and an expansive ocean vista beyond. It adds an extra grace note to an already elegant estate, which is itself set within a spectacular natural environment of salt marsh and barrier beach.
