The Inn at Woods Hole is a lovely place to stay right in the middle of Woods Hole, close to restaurants and stores. There are few rooms and it feels like a house, with common spaces downstairs for reading and having your morning breakfast, as well as a deck on the second floor where you can sit and rest during...

I really liked this place! The room we had was described as the one for those who missed the ferry- so my expectations were low. We were very pleasantly surprised. The room was quirky but very clean. Breakfast was outstanding, and the entire staff was wonderful. CM

We felt like old friends by the time we left. The Inn... More

We were in Woods Hole for a family wedding this past weekend ( July 12th) -----I'm the brother of the brides mother. She booked the Inn for family members last year and my expectations were low for lodging. Well!!! The exact opposite was the experience!! The rooms, bathrooms, staff, breakfast and everything else was over the top!!! We live in... More

My wife and I eloped at the Woods Hole Inn on the 4th of July weekend. We stayed in the Nobska suite which is very romantic. We cannot thank the staff enough for their warm accommodations and exceptional service. We had such an exceptional time -we didn't want to leave. The daily breakfast (especially the keesh) is excellent. We drove... More

We had a wonderful visit to this very charming inn. Daily breakfast was super fresh and delicious. The ladies at the front desk were so helpful with directions and recommendations. The location was perfect! Woods Hole is an adorable town and very convenient to other spots, like Martha's Vineyard. We can't wait to come back and would highly recommend staying... More

My husband and I had a perfect elopement weekend because of the staff at Woods Hole Inn. They were accommodating, nice and attended to every one of our needs. They made the inn feel like a home away from home. We stayed in room 5 which had its own private entrance and had a living room area off of the... More

We would highly recommend and... More

This is a great Inn which has been renovated to a great standard. Lovely and quaint with little added extras like lollipops, candied pretzels,star shaped soap. Room decorated to a high standard. Our room had an outside balcony where you could sit and watch the ferry coming and going to Marthas Vineyard and people watch on the main street. Breakfast... More
