Very central location. The small semi-private beach is a few yards from the front door, and Bayview Beach is around the corner. Large public beaches such as Kalmus, Seagull, Craigville, and many more, are short drives from the house. There are also fresh water ponds within a short drive. Also within walking distance - the Hyannis Marina, downtown Hyannis (with shopping, restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlors, banks, post office, 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, antiques fairs, and flea markets 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.
