Woods Hole cottage description

Charmingly preserved period cottage on private road with commanding views of the ocean and private beach upon arrival. Newly updated with blue and white theme - this immaculate and tastefully decorated cottage has a rolling lawn down to its own private beach and also backs onto the bike path with easy walk or bike into Woods Hole and Falmouth.

Located amidst larger homes, you will wake to the sounds of the waves and the smell of salt air. Have coffee on the new mahogany deck or stroll down the the beach barefoot and watch the ferries to Martha's Vineyard.

Lovingly renovated for modern comfort yet still has original charm and cottage details.

The cottage has AC, wireless internet, cable, phone as well as a washer and dryer, an outdoor shower, a working fireplace and deep bathtub.

Step back in time when extended families and friends gathered for long summers with swimming, sailing, clambakes and campfires on the beach.

          Car: Recommended

          Woods Hole is known the world over for cutting edge science - especially Marine biology and it is chock full of things to do in the summer for science- and ocean-lovers. There are free Friday MBL lectures all summer long given by renowned scientists that anyone can go. A terrific aquarium with a touch tank and two seals in an outside tank and a wonderful summer science school for kids that many generations of locals have sent their kids to. Many of those future scientists state that Woods Hole Children's School of Science http://childrensschoolofscience.org was the start in their interest in a career in sciences.

          Quite a few of our renters have rented the cottage for three weeks just so their kids can go to the Children's School of Science - you can walk to the village of Woods Hole on the bike path - right near the cottage.
