About the Property
Family Friendly 3 Bedroom/2 Bath Close to Bike Path and Beaches
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. (Please note that our dog does visit on occasion, so the house is not pet allergen-free.)

Woods Hole is a seaside village in the town of Falmouth on Cape Cod and an international crossroads for scientific discovery. Home of the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, it is also a charming and family-friendly fishing village with beautiful harbors and beaches, interesting shops, and great restaurants and watering holes. It's also the jumping off point for the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Cyclists will enjoy the Shining Sea Bikeway that runs from Woods Hole to North Falmouth. Visit woodshole com to learn more about this great village.
Year Purchased: 2012
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, Falmouth, MA, USA:
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.
