Best Location Near the Ferry Ports

by John

Question: Great information. Bottom line, what is the best area to stay that has many hotels to choose that is near the ferrys to either of the two islands? Thanks.

Dee's Reply: Hi John - Bottom line? Hyannis.

Hyannis is the only port on Cape Cod with ferries serving both islands.

And the Hyannis area has a great variety of hotels to choose from.

Note: I'm assuming you'll be here in season. If not, scratch the above advice.

Off season (late October to early May), no Cape Cod ferry port serves both islands.

To get to the islands in the off season, the only ferry choices are Hyannis-Nantucket and Falmouth-Martha's Vineyard. (Thankfully, Falmouth has an excellent selection of hotels, too.)

I hope this info helps. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask!

Best Regards,
