(Resupply Boxes, Etc).

Please mail your package to (USPS, UPS, or Fed Ex):

Woods Hole
Attn: Your Name & Estimated Time of Arrival
3696 Sugar Run Road
Pearisburg, VA 24134

Mail Drops are Free for overnight Guests. We ask $5 for non-staying guests

Mail Out

We have Shipping Boxes and Tape.  We do ask for $2 for package handling. USPS only.


We don’t offer a full resupply, but we do offer a resupply shuttle into town. A resupply shuttle into town is $25 (split between 5 or so friends, this is a much better option than offering a resupply here).

You can call ahead to schedule the shuttle or take the wildcard and see if we are available for a shuttle when you arrive.

Honor Fridge/Snacks

Cokes, Crackers, and Snacks are available in the Bunkhouse on the Honor System. 


An outdoor furnace heats the shower so we have unlimited Hot Showers! Free with stay or without stay $5 – Soap and Towels Provided.


Old fashioned hand wash/air dry: Free

Machine Wash & Dry – $5 or Free w/ Lodging, Dinner, & Breakfast


We have Satellite Internet due to being in a completely remote location. If you are familiar with Satellite Internet it can be VERY SLOW!! However, we are now able to offer very slow wifi, and some phones do have Bandwidth here. Verizon, AT&T, and Us Cellular are some of the providers that pick up service here.

Broke Hiker Jar

What is the BROKE HIKER JAR? It’s BETTER than a tip jar. Yes, we will still accept tips, but money that goes into this jar will be available to hikers who are on a tight budget and would like to have an experience at Woods Hole. By contributing to this jar, hikers' experiences are enhanced at Wood's Hole, and it’s a great way to provide Trail Magic.

Hiker Box

Like most hostels, we also have a hiker box. For those that are not familiar, a hiker box is where hikers trade goods. One hiker’s junk is another hiker's treasure. Here you will find spare batteries, extra food, gear, and more.

Library/Book Exchange

We have a shelf for exchanging/taking books. We are also happy to share our eclectic resource of books – asking that you return them to their home after enjoying, absorbing, and reading new-found knowledge.

Musical Instruments

We have a guitar that can be borrowed. Hikers are welcomed and encouraged to borrow, so that we too can benefit from a listening perspective.

Work for Stay

On occasion, we offer Work for Stay. We do our best to resource help with our many projects. However, we make no commitments prior to your stay with us. Please inquire upon arrival. If we do not have work trade, ask about the Broke Hiker Jar. We certainly do not want money to be your reason for not experiencing Wood's Hole!
