  • Great place for an afternoon stroll. Great views all around. Decently priced at $15/car. Hours should be more clear, however. Visited on a Sunday afternoon and were told the grounds would be closing on 5pm, despite the website stating the grounds are open until sunset except for Fridays and Saturdays during the summer.
  • We went to the Crane Estate on the third day of our Boston Trip. We really weren't sure what to do in Ipswich, other than we knew we were visiting Wolf Hollow. We found this on a tourist site, and though we would check it out. We were not disappointed. The grounds were amazing, and the house was beautiful. We took the guided tour of the house, and they present the tour as if you were back in 1928, and it is still being inhabited by the Crane family. It was well worth our time to visit.
