Woods Hole Passage Inn will continue to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests. We share your concerns about cleanliness and security during your stay as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. We have implemented several new policies and cleaning procedures to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests and employees.

We continue to follow all of the guidelines for COVID-19 guest accommodations put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, State of Massachusetts , and the Falmouth Health Department.

We ask that you comply as well with a mask, social distancing and frequent hand washing. Our staff and their families take this very seriously. We appreciate your cooperation.

Thank you for your understanding, continued support, and never-ending encouragement.
