About Bill & Joy O'Connor

The O'Connor family has been vacationing in Wellfleet for three generations and still owns a summer cottage on Ocean View drive. Joy and Bill purchased Hidden Hollow in 2006 at a time when the property had fallen into severe disrepair. Since then we have been restoring, rebuilding and renovating this beautiful property.

Bill & Joy O'Connor purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Bill & Joy O'Connor chose Wellfleet

This property is perfectly situated on the ocean side of Route 6 in South Wellfleet, just a short 1/2 mile walk to LeCount Hollow Beach. But also just around the corner from the South Wellfleet General Store and the incredible PB Boulangerie and Bistro, one of the Cape’s finest restaurants.

September trip

The cottage was very clean and updated. The kitchen was fully equiped for cooking. An easy bike to the beach and also a great bike trail. Perfect for a couple looking to get away.

a perfect launching pad for our Cape Cod vacations

  • 5 of 5

The "Road House" worked out just perfectly for us. The location: so close to the beach; right on the bike trail; convenient to great restaurants; incredible pastries just steps away; and a short drive to Provincetown allowed us to take in all the Outer Cape had to offer. The cottage was cozy and comfortable for two. We felt immediately at home. We had all we needed to prepare simple meals in the nicely appointed kitchen. Laundry in the basement was a great plus. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammock and visiting with Mae (the owner's sweet pooch).

Our hosts were gracious and welcoming. They answered all our questions and even thought of little touches like leaving a flashlight with extra batteries. We look forward to returning!

Still basking in the glow

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in this perfect little house. I was able to watch the full moon move across the sky from my bed on the sleeping porch which was one of the reasons this house appealed to me so much. Almost like being outside.

Joy and Bill were perfect hosts, available and friendly. We had no problems or questions but knew they were there if we had.

Bike trail, choices of places to swim every day, quiet even though it was on the street. Perfect vacation.

The roadhouse was wonderful and we had the perfect holiday. The location is perfect and has now become our favourite part of the Cape. We will be back. Our hosts Bill and Joy were terrific. Nice, attentive, and extremely helpful!

Location, location, location and amazing owners

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Joy are perfect hosts and they have created a lovely retreat at Hidden Hollow. The back yard is peaceful and relaxing and there is direct access to the rail trail bike path from the property. This is a perfect location for enjoying Wellfleet with easy access to the Cape Cod National Seashore, Orleans and Provincetown. Within a 5 minute walk you have P.B. Boulangerie (breakfast/lunch/dinner), a gourmet market and a bike rental shop (Little Capistrano). The house has everything you need and it was very clean and well-maintained. We look forward to returning.

We keep returning....year after year.

The "Road House" could not be situated in a better location. All areas of the Cape are easily accessible from Wellfleet. The beach and a path to Marconi Station and White Cedar Swamp are just a short walk down the road, and the bike path is down the driveway.

Each year that we have stayed in the Road House we have noticed changes in the property. At times the changes are subtle (new windows, deck, air conditioner), other times they are knock your socks off fabulous (new shingles, solar panels, totally new landscaping). Joy and Bill take pride in keeping the property clean, comfortable and welcoming for their guests, which is why we continue to return every year.

One could not ask for better people to have as the owners of the property. They are available if you have any questions or problems either in person, by phone or email. We appreciate their commitment to recycling, composting and use of solar energy. Joy and Bill will make you feel welcome.

If you are looking for the perfect get-away, this is it. The cottage is equipped with everything you need-just toss your sheets and towels in the car when you leave home, and you're all set!

Each year we look forward to buying some smoked salmon and some fresh fish from Mac's Seafood Market in Eastham. They have an incredible selection of fresh seafood that you can take back to the cottage and cook up. We enjoy hiking, so when we are on the Cape we take ad vantage of all of the trails that there are to explore. An annual event for us is one spent at the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary which is just a short drive.You will find information provided at the cottage on trails, the bike path, restaurants and other activities.
