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.

Outstanding B & B

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.


In a word Awesome!

Great location our room looked out over the harbor where the fairy leaves for Marth's Vineyard. We had a wonderful stay. Everyone was very helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay the best ever.


Perfect stay at beautiful Inn!

We loved our stay so much, we're already planning our next trip! The staff were incredibly kind and knowledgeable and the amenities really made the stay wonderful. Breakfast was delicious consisting of homemade eggs, sausage, pastries, coffee, juices and lots of fresh fruits. We received thoughtful recommendations and coupons for local restaurants, which were all amazing. Our room had so many great details and the claw foot tub was so relaxing. Highly recommended!


Wonderful stay

We had a wonderful stay at the Woods Hole Inn this past weekend. Going into the stay, we weren't really sure what to expect because we had gotten a Groupon and never really know what to expect with one of those. We were pleasantly surprised with every aspect of our stay. The first thing we noticed was how remarkably clean everything was. The staff was all super friendly and helpful, and more than willing to offer suggestions on things to do in the area. The room we stayed in was great and very well decorated. It was a good size and had a comfy bed. One thing that I really thought was a great touch was how the hotel has a water bubbler and glasses on each floor for there guests to use. It seems like such a little thing, but it was a nice surprise. Breakfast was included and was delicious. We had terrible weather while we were in Woods Hole, but honestly it didn't seem to matter. The receptionist gave us some good suggestions on things to do indoors, and the hotel even had a collection of DVDs that we could watch if we wanted to just stay in the room. We were extremely happy with our stay at the Woods Hole Inn. Honestly, I can not think of one thing that could have made it better (except the weather!). Such a clean and accommodating place. I can not say enough good things about all the staff that we encountered. We will definitely be back!


Relaxing, luxurious stay!

We were scheduled to be in Boston for a busy 3-day meeting, so we chose to fly in a few days early and explore Cape Cod & Martha's Vineyard. Our stay at the Woods Hole Inn is a favorite memory of those days. The location is perfect with great shopping and restaurants very close by. We also took advantage of the bikes they had to ride on the nearby bike trail to visit a nearby town for lunch and shopping. Our room was very clean and the staff were friendly! We are looking forward to returning soon!


The only place I'd stay in Woods Hole is this historic inn.

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.
