Woods Hole house description
Spacious 3 bedroom/2 bath, furnished Cape cottage with hardwood floors on FR Lillie Road in Woods Hole. With knotty pine walls and hard wood floors, it has a cozy Cape Cod cottage feel, and all the comforts of home. On the first floor, french doors separate the air conditioned family room/dining room from the kitchen and living room. Two air conditioned bedrooms and a bath are located off the living room, which has a cathedral ceiling and a large ceiling fan that helps keep the home cool in the summer heat. Stairs take you up to a spacious loft area with a bedroom, bathroom, and separate sitting area. (This property does have a second floor railing that is very safe, but might cause concern for families with very young children.). A wonderful screened porch with dining table and chairs is located off the dining area.
The property is fully furnished with linens and towels (but if you like really fluffy towels, bring your own!), all kitchen items, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, basic TV/cable, WIFI, and wood burning fireplace.
The half-acre corner lot is gorgeous, with mature plantings, rhododendrons, azaleas, and day lilies. We're looking forward to adding hydrangeas and black eyed susans to the landscape next spring.
This property is centrally located to both Woods Hole and Falmouth. We love being able to jump on our bikes and ride into Woods Hole (or Falmouth!) along the Shining Sea bike path, which is about a two minute bike ride from the house. Easy access to scientific institutions, the Shining Sea bike path, Martha's Vineyard Ferry, and Woods Hole and Falmouth beaches. Located a mile from downtown Woods Hole and about 2 miles from the shops and restaurants of downtown Falmouth.
Sorry, no pets, no smoking.

Woods hole cottage
Loveliest house, best landlord ever and very special location. The listing description was accurate and the listing photos reflect perfectly the appearance and amenities. The property was very clean and very well maintained by the owners. The owners was very helpful and prompt to help. I would highly recommend this house to family, friends and relative. The bike path and beach are located just a 5 min walk down the road. The house is located between Woods Hole ( ferry to Martha Vineyard) and Falmouth.

About the owner: We're a professional couple with ties to the Woods Hole and Cambridge scientific communities. We're pleased to be able to share our summer home with other families who want to enjoy a low-key Cape Cod vacation.
Why the Owner Chose Woods Hole:
We fell in love with this airy and spacious cottage (about 1500 square feet) when we first saw it. With knotty pine walls and hard wood floors, it has a cozy Cape Cod cottage feel, and all the comforts of home. French doors separate the air conditioned family room/dining room from the kitchen and living room. Two air conditioned bedrooms and a bath are located off the living room, which has a cathedral ceiling and a large ceiling fan that helps keep the home cool in the summer heat. Stairs take you up to a spacious loft area with a bedroom, bathroom, and separate sitting area. (This property does have a second floor railing that might cause concern for families with very young children.) The half-acre corner lot is gorgeous, with lots of mature plantings, rhododendrons, azaleas, and day lilies. We're looking forward to adding hydrangeas and black eyed susans to the landscape next spring. This property is centrally located to Woods Hole and Falmouth. We love being able to jump on our bikes and ride into Woods Hole (or Falmouth!) along the Shining Sea bike path, which is about a two minute bike ride from the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is close to everything...beaches, bike path, and all that Woods Hole and Falmouth have to offer. Easy access to the WOOSH Trolley (which runs from Woods Hole to Falmouth) if you don't want to drive. And did I mention the screen porch? We live on that porch...it's breezy, comfy, and relaxing.
