Wood's Hole Hostel has combined the best of a Hostel and Bed & Breakfast!
Our location is quite isolated. We are 25 minutes from town (Pearisburg) and 2 miles from our closest neighbor. We highly recommend you check out the directions listed on the location page if driving.
You may want to bring indoor slippers, camp shoes, or comfy socks on your visit. We take our shoes off when we come inside.
We ask for help in the preparation and clean up of our awesome Communal Meals. It is not always possible to get everyone’s help, so we do not ask this of all. We only ask this of those that are inspired to help. Because of your help and the experience we provide, we are not considered a “commercial kitchen or restaurant” and therefore are able to provide such a unique experience and lasting memories. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions, allergies or concerns. We will do our best to accommodate you.
We have set times that we allow Bunkhouse guests to come inside the Main Cabin. During the colder months, we allow casual reading or chat in the living room until 9pm. During the Warmer Months, we only open the cabin during meal times for bunkhouse guests. We do this because we find the cabin can become quickly overcrowded.
We kindly ask for help with a 5 min task before you head out. i.e “Mess up-Clean up.” Guests that stay in the bunkhouse are asked to “pull a chore pin” to help keep the bunkhouse clean.. it doesn’t need be a daunting task, just a way to clean up after yourself. All Guests are asked to change their sheets/remake their beds (At most hostels you arrive with an unmade bed – we flipped the idea, so you would arrive to a made bed. You are essentially doing what the last person did for you.) This helps create a unique and communal environment at Wood's Hole.
We do not Own a Television. Enjoy the Community Experience that is created by not having a TV. Folks end up spending more time playing music, games, chatting with each other, enjoying a bonfire in the yard, etc.
We are Kid Friendly and Pet Friendly. We kindly request that Guests are responsible for their kids and/or pets at all times.
Smoking is allowed in a designated area. We ask that guests smoke away from the front porches, buildings & yard where we do yoga or hangout. We have a designated spot on the property where folks can smoke.
We are a Drug/Alcohol Free establishment.
Cell Phones may or may not work…YEA!, but if they do, please be discreet!! Talk to each other, wander the property, read a book, or smell the flowers! Remember, you are ‘getting away.’ Verizon and AT&T, and some other providers are recently getting bandwidth here. We do have limited Wifi. It is purchased monthly, by the GB. If the GB runs out, the Wifi runs very, very slow. But we do our best to provide what we can.
We hope you find this information helpful and you enjoy your stay!!!!
Check in after 2 PM or any time prior to 10 PM, unless a late check in has been discussed on the phone.
