This is an absolutely charming hotel a block from the beach and a languid ten-minute's walk from Oak Bluffs harbor and ferry. The room we have is small, but the point of a stay here is to be exploring MV and not sitting inside, so that's not a problem. For those who care about such things, there was no tv or phone in our room -- not a problem for us in the least. The only slightly troublesome aspect was that the wireless connection did not really work in the rooms, but the a/c did. But, the bed was comfortable and the towels fluffy.
The staff are friendly and every afternoon they set out the most delicious chocolate-chip cookies I've ever had! After a long day biking all over the island, our final five miles of the trip concentrated the mind on those cookies and lemonade awaiting us. They did not disappoint as we munched and sipped on the porch swing.

... lovely and cosy, with a just bearable nautical theme but an absolutely unbearable nautical bed. Every time we sat or led down it felt like we were riding waves in a storm. It wasn’t a water bed but very close to it leaving us mildly seasick and with a bad back every morning. But it wasn’t all bad, she did provide a great assortment of toiletries and soft fluffy dressing gowns!
So after ...
... down to a very tidal beach. On our way back to Yarmouth we also found the first real coffee place on the Cape. Unfortunately it's 10 miles from our house.
We've been to Hyannisport which is where the Kennedys lived on a 6 acre waterfront property, visited the JFK museum and did a beach walk to look at the houses in the Kennedy compound...easy to do despite being told "no way" at the museum! Among one ...
... opening to the public at 2:30 THAT AFTERNOON! The families of the crew and the passengers had been there in the morning for a private ceremony to dedicate the memorial. We had no idea of the humbling day the visit would be. As we stood in line at 3:00, we heard people talking to others in line that their son was one of the pilots of the plane!
The Visitor Center is a beautiful work of architecture. We learned that ...
Well, here we go. We're of on our annual trip to the middle of nowhere in Vermont, though this time were going to Canada too. Which means more driving, more packing, and more French.
We were supposed to learn some French over the last few months, but we really didn't listen to the tapes ...
... bus back to Oak Bluffs, returned the bikes and found we had just missed the Oak Bluffs ferry. So we visited the old tyme carousel and played a few games of roller air hockey and some arcade games before catching the bus to Vineyard Haven and getting on the ferry.
The bus trip back to Boston was exhausting--not in a harrowing way, just that as you get off the islands and back to 'normal' life, all that adrenaline and sense ...
