Staff Spotlight – Meet Stevens Doherty

October 7, 2017 by Beth Colt

staff at Woods Hole Inn

Stevens Doherty has been our jack of all trades here at the Woods Hole Inn for the past several years.  Stevens is a breakfast cook, housekeeper and valet during the summer, so one day he might park your car, the next he might serve you breakfast but always with a big ol’ “Good Morning” smile.  “My first role here is to go above and beyond for our guests,” which he does on a constant basis! 

What is the best part of the job? Interacting with people is the best part of the job. I love seeing that look on their face when you go above and beyond.

What is your favorite breakfast item at Woods Hole Inn? It has got to be the quiches, specifically the bacon.

What is your biggest accomplishment? My son.

What is your favorite place on Cape Cod or the islands? Lower Cape beaches, like Eastham and Wellfleet with my son, or any golf course.

Fun Fact! Steve used to be a firefighter in New Hampshire.

What is the best place you have traveled so far and why? Probably Paris. It is just beautiful – the museums, the artwork, the people.

A Cozy Winter Weekend of Crafts in Woods Hole

September 7, 2017 by Beth Colt

With the heat and humidity carrying us into September, we can’t help but fantasize about the chillier months here on Cape Cod, when sipping hot chocolate in front of a fire and knitting our new relatives teeny tiny hats is the best way to spend a winter weekend.

What better way to experience the Cape Cod winter land than with a December weekend trip to the Woods Hole Inn? By booking the first weekend of December, you’ll get to experience a true gem: the Renaissance Fair, right in the heart of Woods Hole.  The Cape Cod craft fair is somewhat of an institution Cape-wide, but this is one of the best.

Every year, the Woods Hole Community Hall is filled to the brim with locally crafted goodies (think award-winning homemade hot sauce, gorgeous nautical prints, handcrafted ornaments, beeswax candles, letterpress stationary, and local honey).  A visit to the Woods Hole Renaissance Fair is the perfect way to complete your holiday shopping with unique, hand-made items.

The mood is festive with live music all day. It’s something we look forward to every year, and always encourage our guests to check out!  Head home with a hand-crafted holiday wreath, made on frames of dried grape vines with locally cut greenery.  Or try the soups and tasty breads offered from our local church – an amazing selection of home made delights sure to warm your heart.
