By October/November I'm guessing the nest will due off since winter will be just around the corner. I'm wondering if I should just ignore it for the time being. I have no idea how big the nest is or anything. It's not visible at all. All I see is a lot of wasps coming in and out of the hole.
If you haven't been stung in six months, you're probably not going to be stung.
If they do die off in winter, then you won't have a problem.
If they don't die off over winter, but just get less active, you will know that they are a species which maintains long-term colonies. Such species can make huge colonies over time - e.g. filling a whole hollow tree trunk in nature - and you will need to think again about consequences for your house. I don't think that calls for a
Locating the nest within the structure, and identifying the species, would be priorities.
