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.

After a Long Winter

4.8 on April 27, 2015

We parked our car in their parking lot and after checking into the Woods Hole Inn had a great time riding our bikes and walking around town for the week-end. The proprieters were friendly and the inn was quite comfortable with extra special touches like warm robes & luxurious bath products. Our room was clean & quiet. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the outside deck in the morning. An easy walk to several nice seafood restaurants and bars in the evening.


Great place

Bonnie and Amanda were great hosts. We had a great time , even if it was off season. Looking forward to going back in season. The remodeling job they did on the Inn was fantastic. With great attention to detail and decorating Tanx for the great stay R Scannapieco

Our third annual visit to the Inn. Rooms are still nice, and the breakfasts are really terrific. The staff is a highpoint-- they are all so nice and eager to help! I like that the Inn really cares about feedback. When we were there last year, we made a suggestion that they add a towel hook closer to the shower. When we returned this month- they were there!


Great visit!

Great B&B - We look forward to returning

4.8 on March 12, 2015

What a great time! The facility was clean and well kept. The breakfast was fabulous. Our room was upgraded upon arrival - and the new room had a fantastic view of the harbor. The only drawback was that the room got pretty chilly during the night - but we had been forewarned and there was a space heater available in the room. We look forward to returning.

Woods Hole Inn Anniversary Stay

4.8 on December 29, 2014

Christmas Eve at the Inn

3.0 on December 29, 2014

This lovely Inn sits right across from the ferry that goes to Martha's Vinyard. It's lovely and comfortable. Every room is distinct. The bed linens are so smooth that you have a wonderful sense of sleeping in luxury. We were there on Christmas Eve so there was no breakfast service in the morning. But I've had their wonderful morning repast on other occasions when I've stayed there and loved it.


Outstanding B & B

5 on December 12, 2014

Woods Hole Inn has a homey atmosphere. We had Room 4 that looked out at the ferries coming and going to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The room décor was so inviting and the bed extremely comfy. We only stayed one night but we look forward to another visit. Employees are very friendly.

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.
