Woods Hole Inn named in Top Ten B&Bs in the US

January 16th, 2016 by Beth Colt

The Woods Hole Inn was named one of the top ten B&B’s in the US by prestigious BedandBreakfast.com for 2015.  This is a SERIOUS honor, and we are so grateful for the acknowledgement.

Back in 2008 when we bought the property, then a somewhat dilapidated house, I do not think many people might have imagined that the building could ever achieve such an honor.  But thanks to the hard work of many — a talented architect, a loyal builder, amazing managers, breakfast, housekeeping and front desk staff — here we are, deeply grateful for this extraordinary shout out.

I do feel the accolades also belong to the village of Woods Hole itself, a small but vibrant place with unique geography that draws all sorts of brilliant people into it’s web of wonder.  With a deep water harbor one of the best on the Cape, waterfront farm-to-table dining, great shops and world class science, Woods Hole is truly unique and should be on your bucket list.best inn in America

I am also grateful to the really cool panel of judges that created the list: Caroline Morse, senior editor for SmarterTravel, Stirling Kelso, freelance travel writer and editor Jessica Plautz, travel editor for Mashable,  Laura Motta, director of publishing for ShermansTravel and Jo Piazza, managing editor for Yahoo Travel.  They have cool jobs, and I respect the amount of research they must have done to make the decision.  It goes without saying that all five of you are welcome at the Woods Hole Inn anytime, just give us a call.

Being named in the top ten B&B’s in the US?? I feel a bit like Sally Fields when she won the Academy Award for Norma Rae: I haven’t had an orthodox career, and I’ve wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn’t feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now, you really like me!

    Congratulations!

    The Woods Hole Inn is an idyllic place, from rooms, to breakfast, to setting, to locale. It is a moment to be grasped and treasured, and remembered.

    And, then, there are the People who run the place, wonderful People, willing to engage, and develop relationships, People willing to support by your return to the Woods Hole Inn.

    We highly recommend it.
