“Warm, relaxing, and friendly”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

I recently stayed at the Woods Hole Passage with eight women friends--our entire book club. Martha and Julie were welcoming even from our first e-mails to book our rooms, and they were the perfect hosts for our overnight. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished; Martha and Julie clearly pay attention to every detail. The breakfast was superb, as were other treats left for us to enjoy.

The common area is comfortable for gathering--the site of a long discussion, game playing, and some hilarity.

We will definitely be returning for another such weekend--but I'd also like to return for a getaway with my husband.

We stopped at Woods Hole Passage for 2 nights from the 23rd to the 25th October. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and Martha and Julie made us feel so welcome. The breakfast was the best we have experienced in a bed and breakfast or any hotel and consisted of gorgeous doughnut muffins, pumpkin and coffee cake, fabulous french toast with almonds and the best pancakes ever along with a great selection of juices and great coffee. We were given plenty of ideas of where to visit in the area from Martha and had a brilliant trip to Martha's Vineyard. Woods Hole is lovely as is nearby Falmouth, there are lovely walks in the area and lots to see and do. We would love to return.

My husband and I traveled to New England with another couple and spent a couple of nights at Woods Hole Passage. The rooms are small but charming. The inn keepers, Martha and Julie, are wonderful and very knowledgeable about the area and things to see. Elsa, the dog, is a friendly greeter. Breakfast at the inn is delicious. The Woods Hole village is also interesting.

Looking for the perfect place to stay in Cape Cod? We,ve found it ! Woods Hole Passage .Ideal location,lots to see and do. Local trails, stunning scenery and beaches. Our room was well appointed and the use of the "great Room" was much appreciated.Martha and Julie made us welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them to help us with. Delightful hosts.Breakfasts to die for! Martha's "raspberry smash "certainly a smash hit with a cup of tea in the afternoon! We cannot speak highly enough of this B&B.

My husband and I and our dog had a wonderful experience here. You can be alone with your loved one and/or you can socialize with the other guests and hosts. It was an wonderful balance that most B&Bs and hotels cannot offer. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The common areas have TV, DVDs, games, and books. The breakfasts and snacks were a treat for the palate and the eye.

We chatted with hosts and travelers from all over North America and also enjoyed private time on the hammock and patio. The hosts provided us with information for the best restaurants and beaches. The inn is eco-conscious yet we had wonderful showers.

And best of all, we were able to bring our dog. We were not quarantined to some garage. We were within the inn proper, near a door for nature calls, and he was welcome on the patio for breakfast. It was one of the best trips we have ever taken.

As far as ratings: Value, it was a bit expensive but worth it but I cannot say it was excellent. And the rooms, clean, comfortable, good bathroom, but small and no individual TV, but had individual A/C. Cannot score as excellent. No swimming pool to rate.

Room Tip: Dog-friendly room is on the ground floor by the front door. Easy access to everything.

When we travel we always prefer to stay at B&B's if we can so over the years we've stayed at quite a few in North America and Europe. Wood's Hole Passage ranks up there with the best of them; great location, clean, relaxing, Martha's breakfasts are spectacular and Martha and Julie are the kindest and most attentive hosts. I really can't say enough good things about this B&B, it is our first choice when staying on the Cape (or within a hundred miles of the Cape).

This is what all B&B's should aspire too.

Room Tip: All rooms are high quality.

I'm local to Falmouth, and was looking for a nice B&B for my dad, who is 82, has Parkinsons, and has a tough time with stairs. Dad is a world traveler, and he's also stayed at several other places in Falmouth over the years.

Martha and Julia set him up in a room just inside the door, so he had very little distance to walk. He loved the pets, the grounds, and the kids. And of course Martha and Julie are lovely folks.

What made this a really a stellar experience, tho, was the food! According to Dad, the breakfasts were truly world class. I had an invitation to come and join him one morning, and agree: french toast infused with almonds and garnished with fresh raspberries, preceded by a cucumber and watermelon salad... WOW!

Dad says this will be his first choice accommodation when he returns, which is high praise indeed.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Woods Hole Road will be loud in summer - and are even a little noisy in fall.
