We enjoyed our first visit to Cape Cod. The cottage was small but clean & well appointed. The owner greeted us in person to give a tour of the cottage & offer up suggestions for grocery stores, restaurants, sight-seeing, etc. Included was a lovely gift basket of local treats. We were close to a small public beach & within walking distance to downtown Hyannis plus walking distance to the ferry for Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket. A nice in-ground pool was available on site, but we never got a chance to use it due to its limited hours of operation (10 am to 6/6:30 pm). Outside of these hours it was locked, and we would have liked to use it in the evening after we returned from our day's excursions.
Hyannis is a good central location on the Cape, and we were able to do many day trips to Provincetown, Falmouth, Plymouth, the National Seashore State Park, etc. The neighborhood surrounding the cottage was very quiet which made sitting out on the patio very relaxing.
