Winter Fun at Castle Hill

Beat those winter blues and make the most of February vacation by getting outside at the Crane Estate in Ipswich Massachusetts

Beat those winter blues and make the most of February vacation by getting outside! Every afternoon February 16-22, join us for winter fun for all ages at the Crane Estate from noon-4pm (we recommend you arrive by 3pm). Check in at the front desk in the main gallery of the house then plan your adventure! Roast s'mores around an outdoor fire pit, go on a winter scavenger hike, do an outdoor activity (see below), or cozy up inside with daily story time and a seasonal craft.

If the weather cooperates and we have snow we'll host a snow sculpture competition and you won't want to forget those sleds at home - the grand Allee will be calling your name! No snow? No problem - there will be plenty of wintertime fun no matter the weather! (do check in at our facebook page in case of cancellations due to unsafe weather).
