A village colonial, built in 1870, our home is located in the Woods Hole Historical District, overlooking the harbor. It is a warm and comfortable home, casual, with original art and sturdy antiques. There are four spacious, renovated bedrooms, air conditioned, three renovated bathrooms and a modern, up-dated kitchen with Viking gas stove, Bosch dishwasher and Sub-zero refrigerator. The front of the house has lawn and gardens and a very large 3-season wrap-around porch, part screened, part open, and looks out at the harbor. The master bedroom, also new, looks onto a large terrace, beyond which lies a lovely 34'x9' swimming pool with its own smaller terrace, gardens, and beautiful view of parkland and wooded hills. Adjacent to the larger terrace is an outdoor shower and hot tub, as well as a gas grill.

About Anne Kent
Long-time Massachusetts residents, we live full-time in Woods Hole, enjoying each and every season.
Anne Kent purchased this House in 1998
Why Anne Kent chose Woods Hole
Years ago our family spent summers in Woods Hole as part of the scientific community. We fell in love with Woods Hole and when we finished teaching we couldn't bear to leave!
What makes this House unique
Unique benefits of this home and location are innumerable: walk to beach, village center and bike path; the house and gardens are lovely, the pool allows swimming from April through October, and the morning walk along the beautiful harbor to get that first cup of coffee at Pie in the Sky is such a pleasure!

Wonderful location and pool
My family of 18, one year old to seventy-four with several young children, rented Anne's house and another home two doors away for a family reunion. We had a wonderful time. The perfect location allowed us to walk everywhere: beach, ferry to Martha's Vineyard, playground, ice cream shop, aquarium, excellent restaurants. The house is a real beach cottage, very large and unpretentious, with several areas where groups can gather as well as plenty of private spaces to read or relax. The best things by far, however, are the back yard and pool. Our children loved the pool which was child friendly and we spent hours chatting around it while they swam.
Classic woods hole house on a beautiful street with a beautiful view.
Handled two families and three friends with no problem. Spent our rainy days on the covered porch and sunny days in the beautiful garden!
The ultimate Cape Cod experience, without any pretense
We loved our time at Anne's place and are already making plans to return this summer. Big spacious house near town, very close to beach, lovely outdoor eating area. Wood's Hole is magical and so is this house!
nice house in a perfect location!
We had a great time at this beautiful property. The house was spacious and the grounds and pool were awesome. We spent most of the time lounging by the pool and the patio. We walked into town to all of the shops and restaurants a few times a day. It was a really easy and pretty walk. We also could walk to the beach in town. We drove a few times to other Falmouth beaches, as well. Anne was very nice and easy to work with. She was near by and answered any questions we had or dropped off any little supplies needed.
The only drawback was that there was only 1 ac unit. We happened to be there for a very hot/humid week so that made the temperature uncomfortable. More AC units in the house would make it a perfect stay!
Being back home will take some getting used to. Your beautiful home and its surroundings, and the time we spent with kids and grandkids, can't be topped!! We hope your next visitors enjoy your wonderful home, and Woods Hole, as well as we did. Thanks, Anne. For us, the money was very, very well spent.

We booked this home last minute and felt we found exactly what we were looking for! The home is so charming and welcoming and so much space for everyone. We loved the layout and expecially loved the 3 beds in one room for the kids. The pool and hot tub were an added plus and the town was great! Walked everynight to a different restaurant and all were fantastic! We took the ferry a few times over to Marthas Vineyard for the day.....what a great location this home is in! We loved the beaches near by too....especially loved Old Silver Beach! We will definitely come back and will definitely try to get this home again. The owner is very nice and laid back...so we felt right at home!
Coffee shops, sandy beaches, tennis courts, a wonderful playground, churches, village shops, post office and library, and terrific restaurants are all within a five to ten-minute walk. Our immediate neighborhood, though, is almost country-like, peaceful and quiet. Best of both worlds! In the southwest corner of Cape Cod, Woods Hole is near Martha's Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands. Much of Woods Hole centers around the enclosed harbor of Eel Pond. A drawbridge at the mouth of the harbor allows boats to enter and exit the harbor Our village is the site of several famous marine science institutions, including Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the Marine Biological Laboratory, and the ferry between Cape Cod and the island of Martha's Vineyard, all accessible to visitors. The local lighthouse (visitors welcome) at nearby Nobska Point has a view across the Nantucket Sound of Martha's Vineyard, and at its foot, a private sandy beach available for you to use. The Knob is another local destination: a rocky outcropping that overlooks beautiful sandy beaches in Buzzards Bay and Quisset Harbor, a Salt Pond bird sanctuary, and is open to visitors and their dogs. The annual Falmouth Road Race brings world-class (and not) runners to Woods Hole in August each year So, come to Cape Cod in New England, and enjoy a lovely Spring, Summer or Fall in our gorgeous and unique coastal village.
