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 heart of this busy village surrounded by water & 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 & ride the "Shining Sea" bike path past the beaches of Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay. 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.

Wonderful two days!

5 on August 27, 2018

We had two great days at the Woods Hole Inn! Breakfast was wonderful - especially the fresh peach pound cake! Yum! Sam was great, made reservations for us and gave great recommendations and guided us on our adventure to Martha’s Vineyard! Can’t wait to come back!

Innkeeper Response

My daughter and I had a perfect getaway at Woods Hole Inn. The location was great, our room was beautiful with it's own balcony looking out over the marina. Breakfast included on the patio was also well appointed.


Return to Summer of '76

4.0 on July 05, 2017

Four of us girls returned to Woods Hole for the first time since we lived there in 1976 and chose the Woods Hole Inn because it was there back then and in a central location. We shared a two bedroom suite adjoined by a bathroom. The Inn has the Cape Cod charm, with lots of windows and living spaces. The kitchen/common area was a friendly place for the delicious, full breakfast, with tables along the walls that provided views of the water. While we loved our rooms, the room with one bed did not have a closet and the cost was somewhat high for only one bath. However, given the location and historic structure, the room rate is probably about right.


A lovely place to stay, very comfortable.

Great Inn

5 on June 08, 2017

We stayed at the Woods Inn hotel for a two day trip to Martha's Vineyard. The inn is perfect and cozy - a great place to stay if you want to get away. The inn was less than a five minute walk away from the ferry to Martha's Vineyard and nearby great food and cafe's. The staff at Woods Inn was welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be coming to visit here again soon!


Wonderful getaway in a charming little village

4.8 on June 04, 2017

Woods Hole Inn was a wonderful place to stay. We've been travelling through the US east coast from Australia, and Woods Hole offered a lovely reprieve from all our mad-paced travelling. Located within a stone's throw of many charming restaurants, it was a great place to relax and unwind. The staff were super helpful and always willing to help with recommendations both at the village, Martha's Vineyard and also Cape Cod area more generally, there was also a lovely cycling trail which takes you into Falmouth which is a must see. The Inn was very comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts were great. There were also bikes available for you to borrow, but try to get them early as they only have a couple.


Great spot

We booked this room a few months ago, and this being our second time coming here we decided to get a larger room ( the first time was just as great). The room was larger than we thought, as was the bathroom, shower and our private deck. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the homemade breakfast is one that I would gladly pay for. Cannot wait to go back!

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.
