My Stay At Woods Hole Passage Inn

Woods Hole


It is always an eye opening experience for an innkeeper (me) to stay at another B&B.   You never know if you will be disappointed  and I have been with some I have stayed in.  You also have to fight the urge to clear the breakfast table, forgetting to sit and let someone else wait on  you!

I was traveling with family and my 4 year old grandson, he was my travel partner and sleep mate.  It can be rather difficult to locate B&B’s that allow children.  And when you do, they are usually not as quiet and luxurious as an all adult inn.  There is always an exception and that is found at Woods Hole Passage Inn.  My grandson and I shared a room and it could not have been better!  The mattress, pillows, lighting and bathroom was just what we were hoping for.  We had a vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan, my grandson then spotted a blue sparkling fish swinging above the fan!

The old house itself used to be a barn, but you could not tell.  The grounds were beautiful and very deep.  Plans are in progress for a fish pond.  One special touch were small to tiny bird houses, in all colors, mounted on treated and recycled dead tree limbs of various lengths and  interesting shapes.  Such a sweet touch and very green to not mount or hang them from all the trees.  The bird houses come from a craft class they taught to children during the summer, they also had a Fairy House class.

The owners are Martha and Julie.  They have 3 daughters (two are identical twins) who are so sweet and they have a toy box for visiting children.  Upon entering you are greeted with such friendliness you feel yourself sigh with relief, instantly starting to relax.   The grounds and the house are surrounded by tall thick bushes which mute road noise, so it was very quiet.  Breakfast was delicious and beautifully plated by Martha who is a Pastry Chef.
