3 Reasons to Visit Woods Hole in the Spring

April 18, 2016 by Beth Colt

landfallYes, there’s nothing quite like summer in Woods Hole. We won’t deny it, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t counting down the days! In the meantime, spring feels like a best kept secret around here. As the weather warms up, the daffodils bloom, and Eel pond slowly but surely fills with boats, the town comes alive again. If you haven’t visited, you must — now’s the chance to get a popover at Pie in the Sky without the wait, or score front row viewing of the seals having their lunch at the aquarium. Just in case we haven’t convinced you yet, here are three more reasons…

A New Restaurant 

1454614014404

This winter, the town of Woods Hole was all a-buzz as Phusion restaurant underwent a serious makeover. With a new name, a new chef, and a new menu, the 41-70 offers inventive dishes with the same gorgeous backdrop to match. Word on the street is that the brunch is to die for.

Landfall re-opens for the season

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Some things don’t ever need to change. Case in point? The Landfall. You can now go to the local-favorite restaurant for a fresh squeezed cocktail and enjoy the view of the ferry coming and going from the back dock. Did we mention that the drinks are the best in town?

Baby sheep at Peterson Farm

Screen Shot 2016-04-15 at 4.08.24 PM

In need of a cute fix? Peterson Farm is just an easy six minute drive down the road from the Inn. You’ll feel transported to the English country side, and even better — if you come in the next month or so, you’ll be able to see the baby sheep (they are as cute as they sound). Come soon though, they grow up fast!
