Great cottage in Woods Hole!
"We were quite happy with our stay at this home in Woods Hole. We only used 3 bedrooms, and didn't spend much time at the house, but we were very comfortable there in the evening. The owners communication was great. They also provided the basic necessities and a welcoming bottle of wine. The house sits on the end of a quiet street, an easy drive to restaurants, the Woods Hole Institute and SEA. There is also an easily accessible trail, although we didn't use it. Hope to stay there again!"

"My husband and I were guests of Anne's for 3 days in July. I say "guests" as we felt pampered and well-cared for the entire time. We couldn't believe our luck in finding a place as wonderful as this at such an affordable price. Anne is a delight and is very welcoming. She operates her art gallery out of the house and her work, as well as that of other artists, decorates every wall. It made the rooms that much more inviting.
We found that Anne was spot on with her recommendations for restaurants and tourist attractions. I wish we had time to sample all of her favorites. We were able to walk to Eulinda's for ice cream and tried both the cafe and market that were also within walking distance. The village itself and more upscale restaurants were about a 10 min. drive from the B&B. An evening in Woods Hole was also a short drive as were Spohr Gardens and Highfield Hall and Gardens. We were able to walk to the beach and saw both a swan and an osprey nesting along the path and reserve.
The house is on a busy road but the master bedroom has AC so you can shut your windows if you wish. We used AC one night but left the windows open the other nights and were not disturbed. There are windows in every room so there is plenty of cross ventilation.
As Anne oriented us, we discovered a wonderful fruit bowl waiting for us as well as juice, yogurt and granola for our breakfast. The table was set with charming, colorful dishware and linen cloth and napkins. The kitchen/eating area was more than adequate in size and well lit.
There is a small reading/TV room with a futon. The master bedroom has a lovely 4 poster bed which is very comfortable as well as a "fainting couch" with a reading lamp. A spacious hand painted armoire and bureau provide plenty of storage. The bathroom is tiny but more than adequate. The towels are soft and fluffy and Anne provides a nice assortment of soaps and shampoos.
There are also several spots outside to relax--a side porch and a lovely patio next to the vegetable garden.
Please note that this is a very old house, so along with charm come upstairs ceilings that are only 6 feet -- not a problem for us, but might be for some. Also, the steps to the second floor are a bit steep.
What could be better than staying at a former sea captain's house while in Falmouth? We look forward to returning."

"We spent a wonderful week here. The home is clean and so spacious. We loved the large deck and beautiful landscaping. Old Silver beach is just a 10 minute walk away. We would definitely stay here again."

"House was huge and very clean ! We had 12 people , age range 7 yrs. to 78. There was space for everyone to do their own thing ( my mother LOVED the pouch, the kids played downstairs and my sisters and I talked late into the night with out bothering anyone ! ) and then a huge dinning table where we played games and ate big meals. The view of the ocean was beautiful and the kids loved the big park right outside the door. I would recommend this house to anyone . I hope to go back next year . My only regret is that it was not warmer. Most of the cape was just starting to open up and many places were not open yet. But, my sisters are school teachers and I have four children so we had to work around school vacation. It was really more about spending time with the whole family and the house was PERFECT for that !"
