We are renting a fabulous house with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms and is only a ten minute walk from down town. This is the third year in a row offering this trip and it is always a huge hit! My favorite trip of the year!

You are free to do your own thing. Usually people will break out into groups according to interest (i.e. beach, biking, shopping, island tours, museums, etc.). We then all get together in the evening for dinner and entertainment. There will be group activities offered throughout the week which you may choose to participate in if you like. For the most part, it's pretty laid back and you are free to do whatever you want whenever you want.

The house has everything you need from beach and bath towels, beach chairs, linens, cooking utensils, etc.

First 7 people to respond will get a single room! After that, it will be double occupancy (2 twin beds in each room).

Please note that there are stairs to all bedroom floors.
First come first serve. Nicer rooms get assigned in order of payments received.
For room shares - we will match you with a roommate if you need one.

Note that there is a $20 parking fee per car, per day in Hyannis. It's a good idea to carpool and share this expense. You do not need reservations for the traditional ferries, but you do for the fast ferries.
More good info...
There are grocery stores nearby for food shopping. Most usually shop for their own breakfast items to have in the house. You can also choose to purchase lunch items for packing a lunch for the beach. Feel free to cook your own meals for dinner too if you like. Most usually go out for dinner.
Getting Around the Island - It's very easy to get around the Island
There are taxis and buses that can take you pretty much any place you want to go. We are in walking distance of town and for a dollar or two the buses will take you to the beaches on the Island. Car and scooter rentals are also available. The bus stops are very close to the house.
Suggested Itinerary - subject to change - all events are optional.
You are always free to do whatever you like.
