Wonderful Stay in Woods Hole

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in Whitney Cottage. We stayed Sunday-Saturday during the week of the 4th (and our one year anniversary), and we wouldn't change a thing! We walked to the beach, to town, and the bike trail every day. We only needed the car twice to drive to the grocery store in Falmouth (less then 15 mins away). Charity was friendly and welcoming, but we also had a great deal of privacy. The cottage is well-stocked with cooking essentials, towels, bedding, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Going to Martha's Vineyard was as easy as walking to the ferry, buying tickets, and walking on the boat. However, we found little reason to leave, as Woods Hole is completely charming and Nobska beach is beautiful, quiet, and relaxing. We would recommend Whitney Cottage to anyone, and we plan to visit again in the future!

A perfect spot to stay in Woods Hole!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, a spacious backyard, and right off the bike path - perfect for our small family. The owners were kind, helpful and were available if we had a questions.

Amazing! Look no further.

  • 5 of 5

We agree with everything that has been mentioned before and would emphasise a few other things. First, the location is better than we hoped for as it is set off the road and not overlooked, therefore it is very peaceful. The shade meant it was also cool and airy.Our 16 year old son slept on the air bed and was very comfortable. The cottage was bigger than we thought.

We didn't have a car, catching the Peter Pan bus from Boston South to Woods Hole where Jamie kindly gave us a lift (it is a short and easy walk) and then hiring bikes (reached by taking the trolleybus that runs from Woods Hole). Cycling along the Shining Sea cycle path to Falmouth via Nobska lighthouse was a delight and only about 4 miles each way. Completing the whole path is well worth it.

We'd also suggest taking the bikes on the ferry to Oak's Bluff and following the coastal path to Edgartown.

Overall, an incredible 8 days. Thank you Jamie and Becky.

Great location. Lived up to our expectations in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and peaceful setting. A short walk to the village of Woods Hole one way and a short walk to a private beach the other way. Perfect for a couple and well equipped. We would definitely go back again.

Perfect Location, Wonderful Week for Two

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is bright, well-supplied, and the location was perfect. A short walk to the beach in one direction. A short walk to Woods Hole with its restaurants and picturesque harbor. We enjoyed them all. The checker board was waiting and along with a comfortable back yard for reading or watching the birds, and time at the beach we had a wonderful relaxing week. Highly recommend for two.

Charming and relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage - this is how holidays used to be. Come here for a relaxing and bucolic time. The nearby beach is beautiful and peaceful, Wood's Hole is fascinating and welcoming, and the cycle paths and ocean views on the Cape stunning. The cottage is charming and has many thoughtful touches such as coffee capsules. We hope we can visit again!
