Recent Woods Hole property reviews

  • An Enchanting Home Where a Large Group Can Be Comfortable

    "This is a magical place. The home itself, the way it's furnished, the way it sits on the site, the placement of the decks, the wonderfully landscaped backyard, all made for a very relaxing week for my extended family and I. The views from almost every area of the house, and from all of the decks, are perfect. We spent a lot of time say things like, "I don't know if I'll be able to leave," and "Why don't we live here?" I spent every summer of my childhood in Woods Hole but the week I spent here is one of my fondest memories. The location and number of the bedrooms and bathrooms make it truly comfortable for 10 people to be together but also to have private time. I also loved how the backyard ends with steps down to the bike path. Even though we never got around to renting bikes, all of us walked the bike path, and it served as a peaceful conduit either to other beaches or the village. We will be coming back."

  • My Dream month

    "I have waited 40 years since my summer college job as MBL dining hall girl to come back to Woods Hole for an extended stay. It was everything I hoped it would be, thanks largely to the charming, comfortable house on the bike path. Its furnishings are basic, but it has everything you need. My tolerant husband was very willing to go along with my dream to immerse myself in Woods Hole once again, and he, too, fell immediately into the spirit of the place by spending hours perusing the fascinating collection of books in the house. We rode our bikes daily, enjoyed the gorgeous deck, and ate terrific dinners in the screened in porch. We loved being able to walk to the ferry to enjoy a few day trips to the Vineyard. Or into town for dinner. Anyone who likes cooking will love the well-appointed kitchen. Our bedroom felt a bit like a tree house to me when we awoke to the singing mockingbirds. And I can recommend highly starting each day with a luxurious outdoor shower! Enjoy the character of a home that has been loved by the same family for a number of years. It felt like home to us."

  • Great family retreat

    "My family and I spent nearly 2 weeks at the property and it was the perfect retreat for all of us. The large backyard allowed the kids to run around and enjoy climbing the trees and the swing set. The house had everything we could have needed and the hosts were incredibly helpful with suggestions for places to go around town. We particularly loved Wood Neck Beach about 15 minutes away, and can't wait to return."

  • Million Dollar View

    "My wife and I stayed a week in August at the "Small Cottage". First let me say it is a very small cottage and it is a true Cape Cod summer cottage. If you know what to expect you will be not be surprised, it is not the Four Seasons! Having said that we loved the rustic cottage and the reason for staying there is right out the window. It is as perfect of a location as possible if you love the ocean. A private beach, on the Shining sea bike path and great views of Martha's Vineyard! We rode the bike path everyday, it is about a 5 minute ride into Woods Hole where you can find bars, stores, restaurants and the ferry to the Vineyard. It is a great location for a couple or two or a small family. Just to sit on the lawn during the late afternoon and watch the boats made every stress you may have had melt away! If you love the ocean and beach this location cannot be beat! It is very quiet and private. We have already booked for next year we loved it so much! I would have given the cottage 5 stars but it is a little worn inside, but maybe that's the charm of it!!! Although we did not have to use it the larger bedroom has A/C which would be great if needed. The outdoor shower was awesome! Overall a picture perfect vacation stay!!!"
