Holiday by the Sea in Woods Hole

November 24, 2013 by Beth Colt

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 at the Woods Hole Inn!

Empty beaches, wide open vistas, Nobska lighthouse with a wreath, Victorian cottages dressed up with lights and Christmas bows are the touchstone of a Cape Cod Christmas.   Snuggling by the fire with a snifter of brandy while the winter wind whistles outside, your Cape Cod holiday is cozy, romantic and lots of fun.

Add the great local restaurants that stay open (Glass Onion, Landfall, Coonamessett, Seacrest and more) with holiday specials, plus our hearty breakfast served daily and you start to get a sense of real Cape Cod holiday cheer.

We encourage you to book early, and stay longer for the full effect that the holidays on Cape Cod can offer — a feeling of total relaxation and fullness that comes when you commit a few precious days to sharing your holiday by the sea.  Our special holiday offer is good while supplies last, so call us today to book your winter getaway.
