About

Perched on the edge of Woods Hole Harbor, steps from the Martha's Vineyard ferry, the Woods Hole Inn is the perfect place to start your Cape Cod vacation. The Woods Hole Inn is in the middle of everything, in the heart of this busy village surrounded by water and packed with shops, waterfront restaurants, fun things to do. From here, hop the ferry to Martha's Vineyard for a fabulous day trip. Jump on a bike and ride the "Shining Sea" bike path past the beaches of Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay. Fish some of the best waters in New England. Watch boats come into the harbor under a real working drawbridge. Visit the free aquarium and check out the submarine that first explored the Titanic. Walk to several beaches that define Cape Cod. Enjoy eating out? Start with our continental breakfast in the sunny room overlooking the ferry terminal. Wander down by the harbor for steamed lobster, raw oysters, real New England clam chowder. Watch the sunset with a lobster taco and Cape Cod draft at Quicks Hole Taqueria (summer only). Try our new year-round Quicks Hole Tavern, with farm to table food offered next door to the Woods Hole Inn. There really is something for everyone in Woods Hole. Romantics come for the quiet power of the sea. Artists and collectors enjoy the local galleries and ceramics studios of this committed eco-community. Birders delight in long walks and rare sightings. Scientists come for the world-class research and then return for the beaches and amazing water views. Woods Hole: exploring the science of relaxation.

one side day nite stay

4.0 on April 22, 2016

We thought the B&B was fine. the breakfast set up was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable. Only glitch was the TV was a little quirky to work. But once that was figured out, all was well.

Great weekend getaway

I loved the Inn, the entire Inn was clean and comfortable. The breakfast offered was probably the best part of the day. Amazing location! Despite the rainy weekend I loved staying there and I had friends meet us there from RI and they loved the place and will be staying there in the near future.

Exceptional hospitality

It's a cute B&B tucked in Woods Hole with ferry to Martha's Vineyard right across the street. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were cozy and clean. The breakfast was one of the best I have had. They really care about making every guest feel at home and will go above and beyond to make your stay memorable.

Lovely Inn

3.8 on March 02, 2016

We stayed at Woods Hole Inn for our 25th wedding anniversary. We arrived on the actual day of our anniversary. The room was lovely. Everything at the inn is decorated so tastefully. I'm unable to give a complete 5 rating only because the first night we had no heat in our room except for a portable heater. The radiators did not produce any heat whatsoever. We feverishly turned the knobs on the radiators but not an ounce of air would come out. When we used the bathroom, we brought the portable heater with us. We had to. I should have called the night number for help but made the best of it. I did mention it to the young lady the next day and she was so very nice and helpful. She was very apologetic, was sorry that we weren't told about the radiators and how cold the room could get, gave us another space heater and then adjusted the thermostat. Voila! With that small adjustment, it became so nice and comfortable. The rest of our stay was nice and warm. Didn't even need the space heaters. Old buildings and lots of windows in the winter brings many challenges. So my advice is to speak up if there is any problem so not to suffer and their staff is very willing to please. Otherwise, the breakfasts were wonderful. I'm still thinking of them! Surroundings were beautiful. A very lovely place. Enjoy your stay! Debbie

Signature Dish

Sippewissett Pound Cake
Homemade each day by our private chef, the Sippewissett Pound Cake is often referenced in our many online rave reviews -- what's not to like about this buttery sweet concoction that melts in your mouth! Great when mounded with fresh cut strawberries and washed down with our piping hot fair-trade fresh roast coffee.
