Perched on the edge of Woods Hole Harbor, steps from the Martha's Vineyard ferry, the Woods Hole Inn is the perfect place to start your Cape Cod vacation. The Woods Hole Inn is in the middle of everything, in the heart of this busy village surrounded by water and packed with shops, waterfront restaurants, fun things to do. From here, hop the ferry to Martha's Vineyard for a fabulous day trip. Jump on a bike and ride the Shining Sea bike path past the beaches of Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay. Fish some of the best waters in New England. Watch boats come into the harbor under a real working drawbridge. Visit the free aquarium and check out the submarine that first explored the Titanic. Walk to several beaches that define Cape Cod. Enjoy eating out? Start with our continental breakfast in the sunny room overlooking the ferry terminal. Wander down by the harbor for steamed lobster, raw oysters, real New England clam chowder. Watch the sunset with a lobster taco and Cape Cod draft at Quicks Hole Taqueria (summer only). Try our new year-round Quicks Hole Tavern, with farm to table food offered next door to the Woods Hole Inn. There really is something for everyone in Woods Hole. Romantics come for the quiet power of the sea. Artists and collectors enjoy the local galleries and ceramics studios of this committed eco-community. Birders delight in long walks and rare sightings. Scientists come for the world-class research and then return for the beaches and amazing water views. Woods Hole: exploring the science of relaxation.
