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.

This was a delightful stay with helpful manager and delicious breakfasts. The inn was lovely and nicely renovated. The ambiance was wonderful. Even in frigid weather I had a good time and enjoyed the restaurants in Woods Hole and a trip to Martha's Vineyard. The ferry was across the street from the inn, very convenient! Will return in warmer weather.

A Hidden Gem

4.0 on February 27, 2017

The Woods Hole Inn is located outside of the crazinesss that is downtown Falmouth, although you do have to prepare for the ferry's traffic during the season. The rooms were well appointed and clean, with ajoining rooftop decks where you can sit and watch the ocean and surrounding activity. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast is much more than "continental", with fresh baked goods, fruit, quiche, and more. The restaurant next door, Quick's Hole, was excellent. We could definitely go back.


Wonderful return to the Woods Hole Inn!

We stayed in the Penzance Suite at the Woods Hole Inn on Halloween night - a return visit following a lovely stay in 2015. The hotel was incredibly peaceful, and we loved just relaxing in the room. We had a great dinner at the Quicks Hole Tavern, watched the ferries come and go, had a wonderful walk around Eels Pond, and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast at the inn. We will be back!


Lovely!

Outstanding service and beautiful quaint rooms.


Really Fun Place

5 on October 17, 2016

We stayed her for 1 night, before heading to Martha's Vineyard. The Inn is a really fun place to stay. Their restaurant was closed for the season, but they recommended another really good one a block down. After dinner, we hung out at the Inn with a bottle of wine on our patio. Would stay here again.

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.
