Kaylee Costa, Front Desk & Red Chair Travels Coordinator
Kaylee Costa has been working at the Woods Hole Inn for several years now, and you may know her as the superstar who saved another employee’s life last year. (And if not, read all about that right here.)
What is the best part of the job? The people! I love meeting people from all over the world and hearing about their faraway lives. My goal is to visit everywhere at least once. I am currently taking notes for my bucket list.
What is your favorite breakfast item at Woods Hole Inn? The tomato soup cake because it is vegan and really good!
What is your favorite place on Cape Cod or the islands? I love driving Route 6A from Barnstable to the Sagamore Bridge. I recommend it to guests who want to explore towards the outer Cape. It’s one of America’s oldest roads (sometimes called the Old King’s Highway) with antique houses lining this winding original cow path. I have picked out many of my future homes along that drive. It really gives you an authentic sense of the history of Cape Cod.
What is your biggest accomplishment? In my off time, I enjoy competitive racing. I recently did a “Spartan Sprint,” an extremely hard challenge but I finished it. I was able to complete a lot more obstacles than I thought possible. It was a goal of mine for 2016.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I love to read. I have finished 36 books since January 2016.
What is the best place you have traveled so far? I love Prague. I visited for a month once with a college group. We went to five countries and I knew the least about Prague before I got there. Just showing up with zero expectations was the best part. I loved everything about it! Prague is a beautiful old city with this huge stone bridge filled with artists, not to mention — the food was amazing. Rome is a close second. I have been there twice and really love it too.
