Many travelers wonder about the connection between George Colt’s best-selling book about Cape Cod, “The Big House” and the Woods Hole Inn.

Inspired by visits to her grandparent's house on Wings Neck, now made famous by the publication of this book, inn owner Beth Colt incorporated much of the charm of the old Cape in her renovation of the building.

She often muses about the connections and similarities between the Woods Hole Inn and the “Big House” in her blog. If you are curious about life in the “Big House,” book two nights at the Inn and Beth will join you for breakfast to discuss the book, and send you home with a paperback copy to share with your family and friends.
