Description

Description

This lovely 1887 Victorian is located in the heart of Woods Hole Village on an elevated lot with magnificent views of Eel Pond. Walk to town for plenty of great dining and great views. Walk to Stoney Beach for a swim, the Aquarium for seal gazing, or Woods Hole Park for tennis. Bike the Shining Sea Path, or linger on the wraparound front porch taking in breathtaking sunsets over Eel Pond.

This house has large windows, lovely sunlit rooms, high ceilings, original charm and fresh paint. The downstairs has an open floor plan with views from every room. The dining room is spacious and seats eight comfortably. It opens onto the kitchen and adjacent to a small pantry with the washer and dryer tucked in.

Upstairs has four bedrooms. Three overlook Eel Pond. The primary bedroom is spacious with a queen bed, six large windows, and tons of closet space. Two of the bedrooms have double beds, and the fourth room has a trundle bed that pops up to make a queen bed. The main floor has a powder room and the second floor has a full bath with a large vanity.

The back yard is spacious and grassy, exterior freshly painted. There is a small deck and BBQ plus an outdoor shower. The house has had extensive renovations but it still needs work, the kitchen is ''rustic'' and the second deck in the back is not currently usable.
We have stainless steel appliances installed in the kitchen, including a gas stove, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. The kitchen has a coffee pot and a Keurig coffee maker, ample pots and pans, plenty of glasses and plates and a lobster pot with all the lobster tools. We have a local Property Manager available for any issues or emergencies.

Come enjoy and make great memories!

    Wonderful Woods Hole House

    Two families shared this rental for two weeks in July. We had a wonderful time. The house is fully equipped and we were very comfortable. The kitchen has plenty of implements and dishes, and outdoor dining and cooking was especially easy at this location. When one of the two outdoor grills started to run low on propane, a quick text to Jill got us a fresh tank. The outdoor shower was a bonus after a day at the beach or a morning jog. On a quiet street that is walking distance to restaurants, shops, MBL, and the beach. A great choice in Woods Hole! show more show less

    Fabulous House

    We have rented this house the past three years. This house is absolutely beautiful. The view from the front porch is magical and the sunsets are amazing. The kitchen is well stocked, the open plan and large dining table are great for our family gatherings, the beds are comfortable and the linens are supplied. We arrive and need nothing. The owners are very attentive and there is a 24 on call service for anything we need. (We have never needed to use it.)

    The owners continue to make improvements. The front porch has been fully renovated and packed with furniture for relaxing and taking in the view.

    The house is perfectly located, a short walk to town to eat or catch the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, and the beach is a short stroll down the street. You can pull in the driveway and never need your car again during your stay.

    There is also WiFi, a great wireless Bose speaker, a large TV with premium channels too boot.

    We look forward to our trip there every year.

    Woods Hole Rental

    We swam at two different beaches, played family board games in the living room, ate at the many fine restaurants, walked in the morning for fresh popovers, biked the bike path, took the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, sat on the porch watching the sunset over the harbor, walked the golf course at night to see a meteor shower and had another family over for dinner at the dining room table. This home is the perfect rental for all ages and interests. I highly recommend it.

    This place was simply great. Granted, the first impression with the porch roof partly missing and the siding needing some work was not the best. The moment we stepped into the house this impression completely changed. The house is superbly maintained, clean, beautiful views, comfy, cozy, with fully equipped kitchen (including a lobster pot !!!!!), barbecue, and is perfectly located. There are toys for kids, a blue tooth sound system, TV, and games. We spent a week with 8 grownups and 4 children in the house and everybody loved it. The living room quickly became the central assembly point for everybody. The great dining room had no problem to room all of us for a long surf and turf fest. The kitchen is pretty big and easily accommodated 4 cooks for the fest. Steve is also a great host who made sure that we had all the things (such as towels and linen) we needed. The whole booking and renting experience was easy and smooth. Overall a very good place to be and fully worth its price. show more show less

    My two teenagers (plus one visiting friend), my husband and I had a great 10 days in this EXCELLENTLY located Woods Hole house. Woods Hole is a great little town, and this house is at the heart of it. Overlooking Eel Pond and literally, only a 2-5 minute walk to the center of town, restaurants, MBL, NOAA, the start of the Shining Sea bike path, and the children's summer science school, it could not be better placed. The house is clean and large, with four bedrooms, plus extra sleeping space (which we did not use), and 1-½ baths. There is a washer dryer, ample parking space, a large dining table, and a big, flat-screen tv with xfinity. As the listing notes (though this may change by 2015), the kitchen could use some updating (tiny dishwasher!), but it served us just fine. I cooked for the family most nights, including indoors and on an outside gas grill, and even did a lobster/clam bake for 9 with no problems. A few other updates are also, apparently under way, which will make the rental even better when completed. The owners left a pleasant not and communicated well by phone and email. Cleaners came before and after our trip. Definitely recommend! show more show less

    We have owned the house since 2012. It required extensive renovations and we continue to lovingly restore it. We treat all our renters as if they are our personal guests. We want your time in Woods Hole to be as magical as we find it to be.

    What is special about this property?
    The house is in town and close to restaurants, the ferry and the beach. The backyard is very spacious and the wetlands draw birds every morning.
    The house was built in the 1800's and has great history and charm. The famous German-born American physiologist and biologist, Jacque Loeb slept here.

    What is special about your town?
    Woods Hole is a great walking town. Once you arrive, park the car and walk everywhere. There is a great eclectic community of scientists, artists, fisherman, vacationers and more. There are three special events in Woods Hole- The Film Festival, the Falmouth Road Race and the Cape Cod Marathon.
