WOODS HOLE - Get away to this beautiful Cape Cod haven, Freshly painted and updated 5 bedroom 2 bath ranch home in the desirable Gansett private community in Woods Hole. Newly furnished, this blissful, tasteful retreat sleeps 10! This property is a retreat away from the crowds, nestled on 3 acres. Two large living areas with room for the whole family. Perfect for kayaking, sailing, sunning and swimming- Just a short walk to Gansett beach and dock. This picturesque area is close to the Woods Hole Golf Course, Wood neck Beach, Shining Sea Bike Path and just a short walk to downtown Woods Hole.
Woodneck Beach- Is simply a wonderful beach for children. The beach has several small inlets that create little shallow streams with small crabs, minnows and other sea life for kids to catch and examine. It is very shallow and sandy in the inlets making it safe for younger tikes to get used to the water and learn to swim. The knob is another a hidden gem in the Sippewissett area; this little peninsula is open from dawn to dusk for bird-watching, strolling, beachcombing, and swimming. It is also spectacular for sunsets.
The Shining Sea Bikeway- This path skims along the coast from Falmouth to Woods Hole and then beyond to North Falmouth, meandering along the Vineyard Sound shoreline. This path is perfect for casual bike riding; the paved path is flat for nearly its entire 10.7-mile distance. This path is a beautiful way to experience the scenery of Falmouth all the way down to Woods Hole. The path itself follows the old rail line, the newer extension passes through Sippewissett Marsh, by cranberry bogs and overlooks Chapoquoit Beach. The entire route avoids much of Falmouth's summer traffic by moving along the coastline and crisscrossing the Salt Pond Bird Sanctuary. After reaching the end of the bike path you have arrived into Woods hole.
Woods Hole- A great bustling summer community with dining, shops, museums and of course the ferry. At the Fish Monger, The Landfall, Quick's Hole, Jimmy's and the Captain Kid enjoy the local fare and fresh seafood, and don't forget dessert at Pie in the sky! Beachy Boutiques and shops are scattered though out the town, the Oceanographic Institute aquarium and exhibit center are a great places for kids to discover the wonders of oceanography and sea life, they even have sea lions right at the aquarium! After a busy day in the town you can venture off to the vineyard or Nantucket on the Island Queen ferry from the harbor. This is definitely a fun vacation spot for the whole family!
