We look forward to welcoming you to Martha's Vineyard. The first leg of your trip requires driving to Falmouth, where you will park your car in Palmer's Lot and board a shuttle bus to Woods Hole. At Woods Hole, you buy a roundtrip ticket to Martha's Vineyard. Parking and shuttle bus add approximately 25 minutes of time to your trip.

Travel: 

Drive to Woods Hole and be prepared to park your car at Palmer's Lot. Then take a shuttle bus to Woods Hole for the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. 

Check out the schedule for the Woods Hole Steamship Authority to buy your ferry ticket to Martha's Vineyard. Leave plenty of time (about a half hour) to park and take the shuttle to ferry.  I would recommend taking the 3:45 pm ferry, no later. If you take the 3:45 pm ferry, you don't actually have time to walk the town before we gather for dinner. So arrive a bit earlier and check your bags to explore the town or walk the beach. Hotel check-in is 4 pm!

Taxis are available for you upon arrival in Vineyard Haven to bring you to the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown.

Here's what  you can expect:

From Friday to Sunday we'll have time for rest, relaxation and interesting conversation. Rather than use a linear, agenda-driven approach, I’m hosting a more organic, coaching experience for women who value nature, beauty, and relaxation, mixed with great conversation and laughter to help you design the second half of life.

And, as special guests, I have invited Carol Connacher, MBA, Executive Coach, Yoga teacher...

Carol has 30 years of business experience, and recently "retired" from IBM. She is an inspiring yoga teacher who will lead us for sunrise yoga to all who might be interested on Saturday morning at 7 am.
