I was lucky enough to stay at the Woods Hole hostel during my Appalachian Trail section-hike this summer. The place is run by Neville & her husband Michael and they offer two types of accommodations...the main house and a bunkhouse. During my one-night stay, I noted no discrimination by the owners toward those persons staying in the bunkhouse. Woods Hole... More

I stayed at Woods Hole with 5 others on our way through hiking the AT...In our group we were honored to have a young woman, an Army Veteran. This young woman was hiking the AT in support of returning soldiers, in an effort to raise awareness at the alarming rate of suicide among returning veterans. Michael was extremely rude to... More

Woods hole was not worth it. Neville was pushy and money grabbing. After coming in from a frightening and cold storm on the mountain she kept suggesting $6 smoothies even though we were soaked and freezing. The stay was overpriced and they asked us to do chores as well. One of my travel buddies got yelled at by the owner... More

Our family visited woods Hole Hostel while my daughter was a thru hiker on the AT. I loved the feeling of hiding out, away from the everday rat race. While there, we were made to feel as more than guests-more like a community. The organic, self sustaining nature of the farm was very interesting. Michael and Neville, current owners, are... More

I stopped here while hiking along the Appalachian Trail. Neville and Michael really make you part of the family with an inviting atmosphere and delicious home-cooked meals. I stayed in the bunkhouse and while it is not an upscale place, it contributes to the friendly group atmosphere. Also, be prepared for goats, chickens, and dogs migrating around the house.

I found Woods Hole on Trip Advisor while planning a trip to Blacksburg, Va. I found Woods Hole appealing because of its location and especially it's history. I stayed for two nights and met some great people!! Neville and Michael are, without a doubt, the most hospitable people you could want. They are both very sincere honest people who bring... More

Great home-cooked meals (dinner & breakfast). I slept in the bunk house. It's a bunk house, you're sleeping on the floor and its draughty. Don't expect the Hyatt for the price you are paying (35$ for bead dinner & breakfast).

I came back to Woods Hole having been there before. I had hiked through here last year and was surprised and uplifted by my stay. A more recent trip brought me back for the express purpose of revisiting this wonderful place. Neville and Michael pour their hearts into this place. Everything is an extension of them: the homey feel, well... More

My son and I were hiking over the weekend and I miscalculated the time it would takes us to get from our drop off point to our pick up point. We ran across the Woods Hole Hostel and met the owners. They were really great and accommodating. We got a quick tour of the place and immediately decided we would... More

I hiked the Damascus to Pearisburg section of the Appalachian Trail in July 2011. Of all the places I have stayed over the course of 12 years of section hiking (1700+ miles), Woods Hole rates as one of the best. It's close to the Trail (about 1/2 mile), and the folks running the place are among the most friendly. I... More
