In May 2017 had a one night stay at the Woods Hole Inn Bed and Breakfast. It was recommended by another party and was not planned ahead. They were very accomodating after hours. The property is at least 100 yrs. old or more and was operated as an inn in the past. The new owners put a lot of sweat and tears into restoring it to its original glory. There are various glass-enclosed displays throughout the living areas open to the public containing all kinds of interesting memorabilia. The stairway to the upstairs is wall-papered in copies of actual receipts filled in from stays at the inn during the 1950's which is quite unusual and striking. The woodwork, doors, and other original pieces have been restored giving the inn character and charm. The reception desk brings one back in time except there is a computer behind it. I had to ring the brass bell on top which I was told was over 100 yrs. old. Our room was roomy enough with a king size bed and it was supremely comfortable after a long car trip. There was a bureau, two night stands, and a small flat screen TV that worked perfectly. The 3 piece bathroom consisted of a shower stall, toilet, and wall mounted sink which was all adequate but the space small. The next morning breakfast was served in the kitchen which could seat quite a large number of people comfortably. We took a seat at the large picture window overlooking the back area behind the inn...not so picturesque but still bright and nice. The main disappointment was the food. OK, not bad but not very good either. Served buffet style was yogurt and fresh fruit and granola - in my opinion the best thing there. Cold, small croissants you could get in any grocery. Banana pecan bread pudding in small cups that was practically flavorless. Scrambled eggs that for some reason had a tinny aftertaste and again plain and flavorless. Another baked good that looked dry and uninviting that I did not try. The coffee was good. Overall, my stay at the Woods Hole Inn was satisfying in that the Inn itself is charming, clean, and the people who work there are very nice. We had to get the ferry to Martha's Vineyard early that morning and it was nice that the ferry was literally yards away from the Inn. I would recommend anyone who is on the fence to stay here but if you are looking for a gourmet bed and breakfast, this is not the place. Stayed May 2017, traveled as a couple
