The Crane Estate boasts three distinctive and equally stunning venue options to host your wedding or special event.  Situated on the coast in Ipswich, Massachusetts, there is an option for many styles of weddings and events.

Steep Hill Beach

Named for the steep hill abutting the beach, this option has two beautiful lawns overlooking the ocean.  There is no electricity at the beach, so this venue option is perfect for a more casual daytime experience where barbecues and clam bakes are the name of the game!  Accommodating up to 500 guests, this is a great option for a corporate outing, or an informal daytime wedding.
