We have had a couple of down days.
Highlights included finding a pair of fresh water lakes in the Nickerson National Park which helped as we have discovered they are having a bit of a shark problem on the cape!

What a fantastic day. Set off early - some borderline misery from the junior members- to drive to Provincetown on the northern most tip of Cape Cod. A trendy arty rainbows type of place. Our main aim to go whale watching on the Dolphin Fleet.
Got on the 1000 and did our customary Titanic shot and set off. The whole thing was done so well. The boat was not too crowded, the marine biologist on board did a brilliant show and tell about whales circulating a tooth with baleen ...
... for $7 but to get out to the lighthouse, the furtherest point from where the ferry comes in, it would take numerous bus stops and multiple changes of bus. I decided to take the narrated bus trip out to the Gay Heads Cliffs and Lighthouse. Steve was not keen to do this so he stayed in the main town of Oak Bluffs. The bus took me through each of the six villages on the island. The most historic of these is Edgartown. The buildings in Main Street in Edgartown all have to ...
... shell on the top and winded herself and cut two fingers as well. Razor sharp shells all over- bring back Cornwall and weaver fish. Extent of team injuries outlined below in the photos.
Greater injury was the parking ticket we got for not displaying a 'Beach Permit' - smallest sign ever at approach to beach so now need to work out how to pay a fine when it wants a cheque. Ho hum. Only $30 but a hassle.

... Vineyard Sound. From his settlement there Gosnold visited Martha's Vineyard many times during the summer he spent in the 'New World'. The native Americans called the island 'Noepe' meaning 'Amid the Waters'- a reference to the two and often conflicting tidal currents at work around the island. Gosnold however named the island 'Martha's Vineyard', probably after his new born daughter and because of the wild grapes that covered the island. Our tour guide ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Heritage House Hotel Hyannis
Nice Hotel, Great Location, Recommended
Had a wonderful time at the hotel. The hotel is clean and the rooms are up to date for the area. Excellent location in Hyannis. Within easy walking distance of the ferries, the bus station and downtown. Also, if you're driving around the Cape, great location to use as a base--easy access to all local highways. While the staff was young, overall they are very nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet was okay--we generally ate at other local breakfast places. We would stay here again for sure. I think the negative reviews on this hotel are more anomolies than anything else. It really is a good hotel for the area.
my weekend getaway with my gf was ruined when i stayed at the heritage house. for the rate i paid, the room was definitely not worth it. the staff was clueless as they did not know where anything was. so basically you're on your own. this hotel is seriously overrated. the indoor pool and jacuzzi was swarming with little children and the pool reeked of urine. outside pool looked swamp green and deserted in the 80 degree weather. i would not stay here again. the only good thing about this place is the location. other than that, save a few bucks and check-into some place else.
Clean and Friendly.
We consistantly stay here. There is no place like it. The rates are great and the hotel is very clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They are always there to help.
I stayed at this hotel and it was a disgrace. God would be dissapointed. A kid crapped in the pool and the staff did not clean it. The front desk was blaring Marilyn Manson on a cd player and, to top it off, my sink in the bathroom of my room was not even attached. The pipes were not connected. When I complained, the front desk person told me to go sit and twirl,. I think you can figure out what that meeans. IT WAS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!
Terrific Location, nice, clean rooms
A very good rate. Nice basic hotel. GREAT location. The newer rooms are a really good size with queen size beds. Disappointed that the outdoor pool was still closed due to some inspection problems, but it eventually opened the day before we left. Luckily because we had great weather, and were so near to the docks and the beaches it wasn't a major issue. The restaurant is only open at the weekend, which we didn't know, and as we were there from late Sunday night and left on Friday morning, we never got to try it out, but there were plenty of good places to eat at in walking distance. I would recommend this hotel if you like to be in hub of things. It's surrounded by all the nightspots. Good restaurants and bars. Great little shops with a lot of character.
First impression of the outside and interior wasn't too good but as soon as we got inside the room we were pleasantly surprised, looks like the room had been newly renovated or kept fantastically clean!
Location was brilliant, right on main street, five minutes walk to the harbour. Would definitely come back here.
Hotel was basic but clean. Good location, diasspointed by breakfast buffet, due to the fact that no price was displayed for it, and being a party of six we wished to keep our price to a minimum. However, staff were very friendly and helpful.
This is a great hotel for a great price. The rooms are always clean and the hotel has an indoor and outdoor pool. locations is great- it is right on main street where everything is located. We are going back for a 5th time. Rooms in the main building have balconies-best price and location!
Loved this charming Heritage House
We stayed here last year and are hoping to stay again this year. They have lovely clean rooms, coffee in the rooms, very nice pool area, charming luncheon room and serve great breakfast buffets. We liked the price and the service. Highly recommend.
