I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very accommodating, from the valet to the servers. My partner and I loved it so much that we are planning a return trip! The room we stayed in had me taking pictures for future decor at home. I loved staying here.

Thanks so much for coming to stay with us, and for already planning your return trip. Check out the blog on our website for pictures and tips (including all the paint colors we used) to decorate the inn. We completed a total make-over of this vintage 1880's building in 2012, so if you look to the blog that year you...

The Inn is a wonderfully restored historic house. We stayed in the Penzance room which could not have been better and the breakfasts were "to die for". The staff from the valet to the front desk were friendly and accommodating handling all of our requests.

We stayed here for 1 night (wished we could have stayed for a week) in room 5 which we were upgraded to.

Walking everywhere is one of the joys of living in this small pedestrian-friendly village and we are so glad you appreciated leaving the car keys behind and exploring both Woods Hole.

We stayed from June 8 to 10 and were so sad to leave. We stayed in room 5 which had it's own entrance by the front door and was perfect for 3 of us! I stayed on the pull out couch in the suite area which was as comfortable as a regular bed. My parents loved the sheets on the...

Ashley from San Diego -- guests like you make me smile, coming from across the country and appreciating our unique New England charm.

Super location, friendly staff, great breakfast, we made this a stop on our way to Martha's Vineyard. The ferry is steps away and nice places to walk and eat near by. We would recommend the Woods Hole Inn to everyone!

We were upgraded upon arrival. Room was lovely, very comfortable and elegant. Breakfast was delicious. Tea, cookies, coffee, water all available in the afternoon. Thoughtful and friendly woman at reception. Not cheap -- but worth it.

My husband and I come to the Inn annually to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff is welcoming, the room handsomely appointed, and the breakfast delicious. The location couldn't be better--within walking distance of the MV ferry, restaurants, shops, etc. This is truly one of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at!

The combination of luxurious bedding, a stellar mattress, and the gorgeous bathroom (w the best clawfoot tub I've ever had the pleasure of knowing) makes this place a must-stay - in addition to the beautiful views, great location, and delicious goodies/breakfast.
