How do I get to the Ferapontov Monastery from Vologda? Is it possible to get there with pubic transport? If it involves more than a day trip, is overnight accommodation available at the monastery?

Very interesting information, since the avtovokzaly web site doesn't provide any information on buses returning from Kirillov.
From Ferapontovo branch ("povorot", just 1,7 km walking from the monastery, on the A119 highway), I would like to take a bus coming from Lipin Bor (or Vytegra) and going to Vologda.
Do you know at what time such buses drive around Ferapontovo Povorot? (End of May, afternoon time, after visiting first Kirillov)
