Many Institute participants choose housing on the basis of price and nearness to the Institute. The guidance below is based on evaluations of those who attended the Institute. 

The Institute is held in the town of Eastham, which is a short drive from the adjoining towns of Orleans and Wellfleet, not far from Truro and Brewster, and within reach of Chatham and Provincetown. Our section of Cape Cod contains more unspoiled wilderness and less commercial development than other parts of the Cape, because it is regulated by the National Park Service. Large luxury hotels may be farther afield, but Atlantic surf, calm Bay waters and freshwater ponds are all within a few minutes' drive. 

Houses/Cottages There are many week-long cottage and home rentals available on Cape. Most rental agreements on Cape are Saturday-Saturday. Participants have found good options nearby the Institute through:
