Beaches of Woods Hole

Where is the best beach in town? This is a question I hear regularly around town and especially at the Inn.  Since our village is peninsular, you can’t walk 5 minutes in any direction without seeing the ocean and waterfront property is not exactly hard to come by. And although much of the ocean front […]

Stoney Beach Woods Hole an easy walk from the Woods Hole Inn

Spring is in the air, with daffodils popping and the bike path cluttered with dusty bikes out for the first ride of the summer.  Wandering just a few minutes from the front door of the Inn brings you to Stoney Beach Woods Hole, affectionately called “Stoney” (as in “see you at Stoney“) by locals. This […]

Holiday by the Sea in Woods Hole

Oceanside holidays are often glamorized in places like St Barths and Key West.  But people forget that the beaches of Cape Cod — especially if we are lucky enough to get a dusting of snow — are perhaps more spectacular than any other time of the year.  Consider spending your holiday Cape Cod with us […]

Day trip to #OB

Did you know over a million people a summer take the Steamship Authority Ferry to the Vineyard from Woods Hole?  Hard to imagine, until you live in Woods Hole and you watch the people streaming on and off the boats. And while we spend the summer at the front desk advising people about how to […]

Photowalking Woods Hole

One of the greatest pleasures of inn-keeping is the chance to meet people from all over the world.  One of my passions is photography, and I enjoy sharing the beauty of Woods Hole on guest “photo-walks” the best of which turn into fascinating conversations about life. We generally depart from the front door of the […]

Red Chair in Snow

Snow is rare in Woods Hole.  The confluence of Gulf Stream waters that surround us keep it warmer here than other places.  Last winter it snowed only once! And so it is special indeed to wake up to a frosting like the one inch we received last night.  Add that our Red Chair is back […]

Boating on Vineyard Sound

Re-discovering Cape Cod from the water is one of my favorite parts of summer.  As the days started to get shorter, and the crispness of autumn snuck into the air, I rushed to take my boat out onto the Sound.  The warmth of the summer water made me feel bold, and we packed the boat […]

Visiting Beautiful Up-Island Martha’s Vineyard

Blog Post by Megan Jensen My early trips this summer to Martha’s Vineyard kept me close to the main island towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Each town is unique and has plenty to offer for the casual journey to an offshore isle. But, for my last sojourn to the island before heading […]

A Day with the Whales

Guest Post by Blogger Megan Jensen Last week I had the opportunity to go whale watching in Barnstable with Hyannis Whale Watching Cruises. Before coming to Cape Cod, I had heard about all the fantastic marine life off this unique spit of sand. During my first week here I was lucky enough to see Harbor […]

Sandwich: A Little Town as Great as Its Name

A guest post by blogger Megan Jensen If most visitors to Cape Cod are anything like me, then they probably get a kick out of hearing there is town in the area called Sandwich. Looking at a map when I first arrived I had to laugh, and subsequently make a few bad jokes, “I wonder […]

Snow Day in Woods Hole

Even though it’s Sunday, I feel like today is a real snow day here in Woods Hole.  I mean who can pay bills or even watch football (OK, maybe by late in the day football is OK) when it looks like this outside? My photo essay on the January 21, 2012 snow storm: Dusk last […]

Walking around WoHo

From our summer guest blogger Caroline Matthews: I’ve had the great opportunity to live like a genuine Cape Codder: on the water. The nights are always cool and comfortable out on the back porch and the mornings start right at 6:45 thanks to the friendly folks at the Steamship Authority. What to do when you’ve […]

Pets welcome at Woods Hole Inn

Why leave charming Fido at home when you will both be happier if you stay together? Grab a leash and show Fido this quaint walking village.  Cross the drawbridge and peek at the mansions of Penzance or head toward Surf Drive on the quiet bikepath.  You will be amazed by the vistas across Woods Hole […]
