Bright, well appointed, amazing location
I stayed at Whitney Cottage for the last week of August into early September. The cottage itself is perfect for two or three people, and has very well-thought-out details including a beach bag with towels, air mattresses, and other sensible comforts. It's a darling place, and the location is perfect - easy walk into Woods Hole and Nobska beach. I'm looking forward to our next stay already!
Excellent Location & So Many Extra Touches
The location could not have been better, <10 min walk to the ferry dock and all sorts of great restaurants and cute boutiques. Beautifully decorated. The Owners literally think of EVERYTHING. It was as if they knew me when I walked through the door. They had my favorite sparkling water cooled in the fridge, the bath products are the ones I use at home, the duvet on the bed was like snuggling into whipped cream. Anything you might need during your stay was in the closet (laundry soap AND dryer sheets, off bug spray for venturing outside, plus much more). There is also a beach pass and a tote bag packed with towels so all you have to do is grab it and a short 5 to 10 minute walk and you are at the beach. The AC worked great but most nights we just slept with the windows open. Alexander was a great caretaker and only one issue which was running out of TP, and he had more for us very quickly. Parking is right in front. It is also short drive to Falmouth which has more restaurants plus drug stores and a Walmart. Great little getaway place for a couple. Loved the cottage and loved Woods Hole.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whitney Cottage! Our family had rented a bigger place very nearby and we needed a little extra room - it worked out perfectly for my husband and me. It is a truly charming cottage, very clean, and the owners definitely thought of everything that a guest might need, adding nice little touches that made us feel welcomed and at home. The location is amazing... tucked back down a lane for peace and quiet, but just a five minute walk to Nobska Beach, access to the bike path, and an easy 15 minute walk into Woods Hole. Wish we were still there!

Wonderful Stay in Woods Hole
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!
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.
