Stormy Cape Cod in November

Fall comes slowly to Cape Cod, with the height of our foliage season happening now in early November.  As the nights begin to cool, winter storms start to head our way.  We had our first nor’easter of the season last weekend, felt a little early for it especially when the snow began to flurry, but […]

Saying Goodbye to Summer in Woods Hole

Girls just want to have fun or so my father likes to remind me. Although I am a serious college student during the rest of the year, I am an unabashed pleasure-seeker in the summer. And this summer at the Woods Hole Inn, my work and my play mingled most affably. One might think that […]

Relax in Edgartown, nearby Edgartown MA lodging

  Sea-washed shingles, neatly trimmed cottages, cheerful flowerbeds, and a scenic harbor full of yachts and sailboats make Edgartown one of my favorite spots to visit on Martha’s Vineyard. Edgartown seems to emanate summer and relaxation, beckoning me back every year. The easiest (and most economical) way to get there is to take the Woods […]

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 […]

Historic Highfield Hall & Gardens (Falmouth MA lodging)

Woods Hole is a village of the town of Falmouth, MA on Cape Cod,  and Historic Highfield Hall and Gardens is three miles up the road.  Highfield Hall is a restored house surrounded by gardens and now used for art exhibits, cultural gatherings and events.  The Woods Hole Inn is a perfect jumping off point […]

Cape Cod Roses, or How Woods Hole grew this famous Cape Cod Rose

From Guest Blogger Gwen Martin:  Ever wondered what a New England seaside village looked like in the early 1900s? A walking tour of Woods Hole opened my eyes to what life was like here over a hundred years ago. Although the village is now home to four major scientific institutions with their laboratories and offices, […]

Visit the Woods Hole Historical Museum in summertime Cape Cod

There are so many fun things to do in summertime on Cape Cod, but one of my favorites is a visit to the Woods Hole Historical Museum in Woods Hole, MA.  This small gem of a collection is housed in an adorable 18th century farmhouse draped with rambling roses and accompanied by an equally charming […]

Visiting Falmouth Main Street, Old World Shopping at Cape Cod’s Best Main St

Woods Hole is a village of the town of Falmouth, and three miles up the road is the center of town which we call Falmouth Main Street.  Crowded with year-round restaurants, adorable shops, candy stores and ice cream parlors, Falmouth’s Main Street is a nice bike ride from the Woods Hole Inn, where we offer […]

Sushi Cape Cod in Woods Hole at Shuckers Raw Bar

Moving from Los Angeles — arguably the sushi capital of America — four years ago, I was somewhat stunned to discover that there was not much sushi on Cape Cod, and none in Woods Hole despite our twelve lovely water view restaurants.  Raw bar, yes.  Ahi tuna on salad, yes.  Ahi tuna in a burrito, […]

Summer on Cape Cod, Woods Hole is Quintessential Cape Cod Village

Summer on Cape Cod…the smell of fresh cut grass, the whoosh of the surf, a light breeze on hot skin, corn on the cob with butter, tender lobster meat melting in your mouth.  Cape Cod is the essence of summer, and Woods Hole is the quintessential place to enjoy it. My summer started with a […]

Spohr Gardens Daffodil Days in Spring on Cape Cod

Springtime on Cape Cod invokes images of fields germinating, baby lambs darting across meadows, the bright green of fresh grass and of course the ubiquitous daffodil, a harbinger of summer which is right around the corner.  The best place to see fields of waving daffodils is on a drive to Woods Hole where they will […]

Join the Cape Cod iPhoto Safari Retreat (April 4-6, 2014) at […]

Dreaming of Summer

I am constantly bragging about how mild the weather is here, how rarely we get snow, how when we do it melts right away.  Readers of this blog must have heard me reference the warm “gulf stream waters” dozens of times and even heard me lament the brief sledding opportunities, the short pond-skating season. Not […]

Bringing the Summer Beach Inside

Nantucket Dune.  Sandy Ridge.  Tidewater.   Sounds like bad poetry, but these are Sherwin Williams paint colors currently in use at the Woods Hole Inn intended to bring the poetry of the summer beach inside. Getting the paint colors right at your beach house is one of the hardest things to achieve — trips to the […]

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 […]
