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 (round trip 20 miles) past beaches of Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay. Fish some of the best waters in New England. Explore the deserted coves and beaches of the pristine Elizabeth Islands. Watch boats come into the harbor under a real working drawbridge. Visit the free aquarium: 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. Go on a world-class pub crawl from the Landfall to the Leeside to the Captain Kidd -- so close to the water you can dip your feet. There really is something for everyone in Woods Hole. Birders delight in rare sightings. Artists and collectors enjoy the local galleries and ceramics studios of this committed eco-community. Scientists come for the world-class research and then return for the beaches and amazing water views. Romantics come for the quiet power of the sea. We are an eco-destination. Come stay green by the deep blue sea.

A Weekend to Remember!

5 on February 03, 2014

I'm pasting this from my review on Trip Advisor. Give Rachael a call and tell her Barry & Denise recommend this B&B. Rachael is awesome! "Controlled Elegance" refers to the facility. Newly renovated, this beautiful old inn has been completely returned to it's splendor. The rooms were gutted and rebuilt with phenomenal bathrooms and beautifully appointed rooms. A few steps away from the Martha's Vineyard ferry and a few steps away from an incredible bakery, a couple of great seafood restaurants and a short "stagger" home from the famous "Captain Kidds," restaurant and memorable bar! The staff was delightful and accommodating. The breakfasts they describe as "Continental" are far more. The hot specialties, fruit, granola, croissants and breakfast pastries are served along with cold orange and cranberry juice. The coffee is awesome and the tea selection, varied. A slow and careful walk around all the nooks and crannies of this inn will reveal an inspirational variety of decorating ideas. We absolutely LOVED it!


A quick stop and a perfect choice

5 on November 26, 2013

Woods Hole Inn was the perfect choice for a quick stop. Location and view are perfect! But enough about the outside...the inside was more than I expected. The decor was not your typical B&B and a very refreshing take on Art Deco. The rooms and common areas were spotless, organized and very comfortable. The bathroom was huge and our room had a roof top spot for wine at sunset overlooking the Vineyard ferry. In the morning, I opened my eyes to an amazing view of the full moon at sunrise. And the girls...so wonderfully friendly, helpful and informative! The breakfast was so much more than I expected. I mentioned at the time of making my reservation that I was a vegan and there were plenty of options available to get my day started. Thank you Woods Hole Inn for a great Mother Daughter escape. We had a great time!


Lovely November Stay

Look no further... this is where you want to stay!

If you are looking for the absolutely best place to stay in the Woods Hole area, you have found it! The Wood's Hole Inn is the first class. The staff went out of their way to make sure you were comfortable and to answer any questions. We did request to have the owner, Beth Colt, join us for breakfast to hear about "The Big House", a book written by one of her family members about the history of one of the homes in Wood's Hole. Beth is a engaging lady and the stories that she told about the characters and history of the Inn as well as the entire area were delightful! On one of our days, we traveled out to Martha's Vineyard and couldn't wait to get back to Wood's Hole. The Inn is central to everything and we found we didn't need our car which was really nice. Just a quick walk to everything we wanted to do. We would only stay back at the Wood's Hole Inn when we returned to the area.

Signature Dish

Sippewissett Pound Cake
Homemade each day by Sara 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.
