Vacation Cottage, 3BR/3BA, sleeps 8, roof deck, screened porch, Solar-Powered!

3 BDRM 'Lost Oak Cottage' at Hidden Hollow located 1/2 mile from LeCount Hollow Beach, adjacent to the National Seashore with a private path to the Cape Cod Bike Trail. This 1847 Cottage was completely renovated for the 2013 season. The new solar panels on the cottage generate more electricity through-out the year than the cottage uses; giving you a 'sustainable' vacation experience! The cottage has a fully-equipped eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, gas stove and microwave. A washer and dryer and broadband wireless internet connection are also available. The living room has a gas fireplace, cable TV, Blu-Ray DVD, and comfortable seating. There is one bedroom on the first floor with a full size bed. There is one second floor bedroom that has queen bed and it opens to the large roof deck; perfect for relaxing after the day’s activities and enjoying the views of Blackfish Creek and is a bird watcher's paradise.

Beautiful vacation in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the Cape was wonderful! We were fortunate to stay at the Lost Oak Cottage which is a beautiful home that could accommodate our family perfectly. The kids had their own space with a bathroom, living room and bedroom and private entrance. Sitting on the top deck in the morning having coffee with a beautiful view was so peaceful. Evenings sitting in the screened in porch was delightful as well. The beach was gorgeous and so close to the home. Having the stores to walk to was great, especially the French bakery. We never had to leave to get in the car. Everything we needed was in walking distance. Bill and Joy were fabulous! We are hopeful to be back next summer. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect and relaxing week!

Lovely 'compound' of houses, well-situated, nice views and close to both bike trail and bakery!

The O'Connors are gracious hosts. The houses we stayed in -- Lost Oak and Tupelo -- are comfortable, clean, well-furnished, and have lovely views of the marshes.

Beautiful, comfortable, and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our weeklong stay in Wellfleet with our young family was just perfect, due in large part to the beautiful cottage at Hidden Hollow. Private—but conveniently located near the bike path, general store, and delicious breakfast spots—the cottage was pristine, with every comfort and amenity, and so clearly designed with families in mind. The owners provided all of the information and availability we needed during our stay. I would recommend the cottage to anyone! We enjoyed our stay so very much, and we hope to return for years to come!

Wonderful, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend a week! We had great weather followed by the remnants of Hurricane Joaquin. For three days we were house bound and enjoyed the house so much!

Bill and Joy are such wonderful hosts and we could have just moved in.

The location is great with plenty of food options within a hundred yards of the house, but the feel is much more remote and natural.

Wonderful week in great location

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacation rentals we have ever had. Everything in the Lost Oak cottage was exactly as described. The cottage is obviously well maintained, clean, and comfortable. The cottage is at the end of a driveway with a few other cottages on it but felt private, overlooking a marsh. We enjoyed having so many conveniences including a good small grocery/general store, bakery, and liquor store a short walk away. We also enjoyed having the bike path right there even though we didn't ride bikes - it was a great place for my morning jog. Everything else we needed including walks at the national seashore was available within a relatively short drive, and the scenery in the area is awesome. We enjoyed walking to the beach, visiting lighthouses at the national seashore, and the trails at the nearby Audubon preserve. Owners responded promptly to our questions and were easy to deal with. Hope to return.

The best rental in Wellfleet!

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing here for the past three years and plan to come next year. It is perfect in every way, The owners are friendly and helpful, they have created a beautiful and relaxing haven! Perfectly located, a short walk to the ocean, bike trail and great bakeries and restaurants. The house accommodates easily 6 people. We all like to cook and the kitchen is very well designed. Myself and friends are artists and we have enjoyed the quiet beauty and inspiration this place has to offer.
