Very central location. Within walking distance are the small semi-private beach 50 yards away and Bayview Beach, 200 yards away at the entrance to Hyannis Harbor. Also within walking distance - the Hyannis Marina, downtown Hyannis (with shopping, restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlors and the JFK Museum) and the Steamship Authority Ferries, with boats to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Within a short drive are the airport, bus station, hospital, the HyLine Ferries, the Cape Cod Mall and the movie theater. The Cape Cod Melody tent in Hyannis has world-class performers every summer. The Cape Cod Symphony, also in Hyannis, gives concerts throughout the fall, winter and spring. Art shows and antiques fairs abound all over the Cape throughout the year. There are several great public golf courses nearby. Our location is the perfect one from which to explore all corners of the Cape, participate in lots of activities - or just relax. The Cape is heaven and the cottage is a little piece of paradise.
