Ever dream of siting by the sea with your new spouse? Castle Hill has the perfect spot. A large lawn with adirondack chairs galore, bridal party and guests can relax with a drink and some ocean views. If you’re dreaming on an intimate 50 person party or a high-society 300 person gala, Castle Hill is your venue. Ceremonies can be held inside or outside. Their custom sail-cloth tent makes the outdoors feel as luxurious as indoors.
The fun doesn’t end with the reception, guests can reserve rooms or whole beach houses. Just a few feet from the sand, you and your guests can wake up, roll out for morning coffee by the sea, and get ready for the festivities. Sounds like perfection.
