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!
