“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2009

We've been to B & Bs from the West Coast to the East Coast, and this one is heads and shoulders above the rest! We tire of B &Bs that put out bottled water, and tout their "greeness" by bragging how they recycle the plastic! Why don't they not do bottled water in the first place?

The folks at Woods Hole Passage are honest believers--if you need throw-away plastic and new sheets everyday, then this probably isn't the spot for you. But if you have an honest conservation ethic, and want an absolutely lovely place to stay, this is it. Hot coffee on the veranda, watching the sun come up of a morning--it just does not get any better than this!

Deb and Lee are delightful hostesses, and marvellous cooks. The rooms are light and airy, and the grounds are simply gorgeous. We were there with our whole family--booked the whole place, we did--for four days, and our only wish is that we could have stayed longer. Bikes are available, and bike/walking trails easily accessible--the main thoroughfare is narrow, but bikers are common, and there is little need to remain on the busy streets for any appreciable amount of time.

We recommend it, without reservations, to anybody who plans to stop for a few days near Woods Hole or Falmouth. For our part, we'll be back, for sure!

This was an ideal place to stay for me. The setting for breakfast is superb; a patio overlooking expansive gardens with good wi-fi and also located close to the main campus for WHOI. Very comfortable, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, great breakfast, strongly recommened.

The convenience of this B&B for Martha's Vineyard ferry travelers and Cape Cod tourists cannot be beat! It is a great "base camp" for seeing the Vineyard and all of Cape Cod in a day or two. The location, albeit a little close to a main road, is an idylic garden setting, just minutes from the Woods Hole ferry depot. The gathering room is host to a library full of bird and garden books, even binnoculars for gazing out of the large picture window. And you feel at home lounging on one of the many couches or chairs. Speaking of reading, you are allowed to take a book from your room at checkout to finish later. The owner was friendly and helpful without being "overly-present." and without giving you the sense that you were intruding in her home. Some of the nice perks she offered were bikes, daily cookies, and outdoor sightseeing suggestions! The breakfasts were tasty, hot, and plentiful, and the kitchen was accommodating to my husband, a minor diabetic. Our country-decorated room was perfect---timelessly decorated, practical, and suited for a good night's sleep. It was just the right size, quiet, cool, and dark, with that all-important bedside lighting for bedtime readers. The bed was cozy and not squeaky or mushy or overly fragrant. The private attached bath was well equipped; the shower was an ample size, with no quirks and all the ammenities provided. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay. It would be our first choice of bed and breakfasts for a return to Cape Cod. --The Yorks, Colorado

I can't say enough about what a fantastic time my husband, 4-year old son, and I had during our long weekend at Woods Hole Passage.

It is difficult to find a B&B on the Cape that is child-friendly, but Deb and Lee welcomed our boy with open arms. They went out of their way to make him feel special, even going so far as to accommodate his picky palate when it came time for breakfast. We stayed in the "Four Fish" room, which had both a queen and a twin bed (in it's own little alcove), and everything was perfect.

The FULL breakfasts were delicious and nutritious - we had French toast and fruit on our first morning and an incredible fritatta with warm, homemade toast on the second.

The grounds are stunningly reminiscent of an English cottage. Birds abound, there is a fabulous stone patio, and even a hammock to relax in - make sure to visit the frogs in the little pond too!

As for the location, equi-distant between downtown Falmouth and downtown Woods Hole, it can't get any better. Bicycle paths, nature trails, beaches, and quaint towns - not to mention the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. It's all right there.

Woods Hole Passage is definitely a great place to stay on your Cape vacation - it is a little oasis of New England paradise that you won't want to leave. We can't wait to go back!

It happened to be a rainy time on Cape Cod - mid May - but we had a delightful time anyway. Woods Hole Passage feels like home but more comfortable, luxurious, neater, etc than mine ever is... We had only two days but made the most of them. Located between Woods Hole and Falmouth it was easy to play tourist but not be in a car all day. Best time was riding bikes along the water and throughbout Woods Hole; the inn has bikes available at no charge to take off onto many nearby bike paths. The garden and grounds of the inn are lovely - like staying on an estate in the country. Our room was lovingly arranged and cared for as was the huge common room looking out onto the garden. Breakfasts were perfect! Most of all, our hosts were gracious, easy to talk with, most considerate; we truly felt that we were among friends.

My husband and I have stayed at Woods Hole Passage for many, many years. We have occasionally stayed in other inns on the Cape but always return to Woods Hole Passage because of the graciousness of the owners, the beautifully landscaped and peaceful grounds, and the cleanliness and charm of the rooms. Deb and Lee make the most delicious breakfasts also. We would highly recommend this inn to anyone.

My wife and I just had the most wonderful experience at an inn, called Woods Hole Passage. The inn is impeccably clean, the grounds are beautiful and the home made breakfasts are amazing! As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed as if we were old friends and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating. Deb and Lee provide one of the most relaxing settings that we have ever encountered. We are business owners and tend to work way too much. During our stay, our stress levels seemed to disappear and we truly remembered what is important in life!
We can't wait for our next visit!!!
