About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, accommodates 8-10 comfortably

Hidden Hollow Cottage has everything you need to feel at home. In 2008, this bayside home was completely renovated with our guests in mind. All the amenities that usually cost vacationers extra time and money are provided for our guests. New bedlinens for each room, freshly made-up for your arrival. Bath and beach towels, paper products, laundry/dish detergent, beach chairs and toys, items that cost hundreds of dollars per week to buy or rent, all included. Add to it family board games, books, movies and you're ready to relax. We want you to thoroughly enjoy your Cape Cod vacation and hope you'll want to return to Hidden Hollow year-after-year.

The home is located on historic-and-scenic Paine Hollow Road in the quaint, seaside town of Wellfleet. The home sits on a quiet, wooded lot, some 75 yards from the bayside's Blackfish Creek. You're a stone's throw to Fox Marsh walking paths and minutes from the oceanside beaches and town center. Check out our website link below for more info.

Hiking & Biking: Hiking the miles of trails is a great way to get exercise and see the abundant wildlife. Out the back door from Hidden Hollow Cottage are miles of cut and marked trails that spread through the Fox Marsh Conservation Area. Depending on the time of year you will see Osprey’s and Blue Heron fishing, sea ducks like Eider, Bufflehead, and Scoter diving, Cardinals, Robins, and Hummingbirds flittering. Hidden Hollow Cottage attracts a significant number of Orioles in the Spring and Summer. And who knows? You may even spot a Red Fox. The Cape Cod Rail Trail, formerly known for transporting vacationers and provisions from the mainland, is now a bike trail. The Wellfleet section has been completely remodeled, and begins behind the South Wellfleet General Store. The parking lot has been expanded, the paths repaved, and it’s two-minutes away from Hidden Hollow Cottage. Pick up some water and snacks, peddle to Marconi Beach, and stop along the path for an afternoon ice cream on your return.

Beaches & Ponds: People come to Wellfleet for so many different reasons. Most, though, come for the water. One group favors the brine, making the beaches the main draw. And for good reason. There are miles and miles of white sand beaches, hundreds of yards wide along the Oceanside. Four beaches, LeCount’s Hollow, White Crest, Cahoon Hollow, and Newcomb Hollow are few minutes away from Hidden Hollow Cottage. Each beach has its own unique character, so sample them all and discover a new favorite place. Other folks come for the sweetwater kettle ponds, formed long, long ago by the glaciers. There are a variety of ponds that have beaches and shallows, perfect for families and kids. Some, like Gull and Great Ponds, have miles of coastline and range in depth between 30 and 60 feet. Others, like Duck or Dyer Ponds, are much smaller and intimate. The clear water is terrific for swimming or kayaking.

Fishing & Boating: Our region got its handle honestly because of the fishing. To be sure, cod are a highly-prized species, but you’ll find more anglers along the beaches, flats, rips and shoals searching for striped bass, bluefish and tuna. During the year, and particularly in September and October for the annual Fall Run, anglers line up along the shore as they have done for the past 100 years. More recently, anglers come to Cape Cod for the sight fishing. The style is a modified version of the techniques used in the Tropics, but the thrill is identical: you cast to a fish you can see. The shallow water flats and the clear water thrill old and young anglers alike. For great fishing spots, check out Keer's book, Fly Fishers Guide to the New England Coast. Bring your boots or book a charter captain for a day. Consider renting a motor- and sailboat, taking a sailing lesson or booking a day-charter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just can't say enough wonderful things about Hidden Hollow! You basically need to pack your clothes and leave the rest at home. Tom and Angela not only open their beautiful home, they have included everything that you need for a great stay on the Cape! I highly recommend this to any family. There were 10 of us and with such a great layout, and 2 living rooms, we never felt crowded. The top floor has a wonderful open set up which was great for having everyone together and we spent the evening on the large deck reflecting on yet another great day.The grounds are great too and our kids loved running around. We went to Cahoon Hollow Beach every morning which is beautiful, and ended the day at either Gull or Great Pond which were wonderful for our 1 year olds to play around in. We had great meals at The Bookstore, The Wicked Oyster, Winslows Tavern, and PB. We are looking forward to making this an annual trip.

The Joy in the Details

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was well furnished to accommodate 5 kids (1.5, 4, 5, 11, 15) and 5 adults. The description is right about the bayside home was done with the guest in mind. The amenities alone are worth staying here above other vacation homes – having access to beach towels, beach umbrellas, coolers, beach chairs etc. is one less thing to think about. The cottage offered plenty for everyone to do without having to revert to watching television or sitting on smartphones/ computers. The energetic inquisitive developing minds took daily walks to the nearby Fox Marsh where they had an endless experience with the sights and sound of the Marsh especially the fiddle crabs arousing various reactions to the friendly and kind people walking their dogs. Others took to playing hide and seek in the yard while others played a game of Jumbo ball – think Wiffle ball just with a jumbo bat and bigger ball. The location of the cottage made outings to Mayo beach and Marconi Beach effortless. The layout of the house allowed for moments of serenity where one could sit with a book or enjoy the silence of the great outdoors and comradery where everyone could come together to play a game or hang out. Of the places we have stayed as a family this has been the most relaxing and feel good Cape Cod vacation home. At the end of the day being out and about it was assuring to come back and recharge at the cottage. While we experienced a thunder and lightning storm the night before we left and had a shock of the fire alarm going off around 11 after the house was quiet it still does not take away from the lovely time we had at the cottage.

Thanksgiving getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful holiday retreat. it had everything you could need (including a fully outfitted kitchen!) and comfortably handled our crew of nine. In the morning we were treated to a gorgeous winter wonderland and the sight of a red fox in the yard. The setting is beautiful. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful Cottage & Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Hidden Hollow on Mother's Day weekend. We were two couples with five kids under five and one auntie. The kids loved the short walk to the beach, chasing fiddler crabs, and trying to touch the fish when the tide came in. The area around the house is very shady and peaceful--just what we wanted. The cottage is beautiful inside and lovingly appointed (Tom and Angela have thought of everything!). We especially appreciated the trove of toys in the kids' bedroom and the well-stocked kitchen. There are many great beaches close by as well. Tom and Angela were lovely. We hope to come again soon!

Nice One (thumb up)

  • 5 of 5

This review is well overdue since a group of six of us had the pleasure of spending a week at Hidden Hollow back in September. The memories remain indelible.

Nestled among the woods, Hidden Hollow provides the perfect escape. The moment you step inside you feel at home. Each of the rooms was pristine and beautifully decorated, yet completely comfortable and inviting. The house is stocked and duly appointed with all the necessities, and then some. From a computer with internet access (for those who can't leave it all behind) to beach chairs (for those of who can).

The location is hard to beat, especially if you like natural surroundings and scenic walks along the bay. You're a short drive from a number of beaches, great shopping and dining. We also enjoyed excursions to Chatham, Hyannis and Provincetown. We hopped a ferry and spent a day on Martha's Vineyard as well.

While we spent most evenings cooking fresh seafood (we mucked for the clams ourselves - sorry about the waders, Tom) and eating while gathered around the kitchen table at Hidden Hollow, we did venture out for a couple of meals. Mac's Seafood at the pier was deep fried deliciousness and well worth braving the chilly, wet weather that day. We visited Moby Dick's two times it was so good. There is a bakery in Orleans which I can't recall the name, partly because I was intoxicated by the delightful goodness they call a "Dirt Bomb."

The thing that impressed me most was the warm and genuine welcome we received from the owners of Hidden Hollow, Tom and Angela. They made certain we had all the comforts of home. There was even a notebook in the house with helpful tips on where to go and what to do as well as instructions for operating the audio/video equipment (which is easy to understand unless you've opened that second bottle of Truro Vineyards vignole). Tom and Angela took the very best care of us, all the while remaining completely relaxed and laid back. Being from the south, I can say their hospitality was down-right "Southernesque." Tom is a masterful story teller and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of Cape Cod history. Ask him what a mooncusser is. And get Angela to guide you to the most spectacular sunset you can ever hope to behold. It is worth the chase. Maybe it's the sunset or the stories, or the wonderful food and freindship, or just the Cape Cod lifestyle that fuels my desire to soon return to lovely Hidden Hollow.

P.S. Kids - you're the BOMB!

LeCount Hollow Beach
Car: recommended

Hidden Hollow Cottage came by its name honestly, for it is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac off Wellfleet’s historic and scenic Paine Hollow Road. Acres and acres of conservation land and Blackfish Creek are mere steps out the front door. You’re centrally located, which makes it easy to launch into all your favorite activities. Some of Doctor Beach’s Top 10 selections are minutes away. Choose from the family-oriented LeCount Hollow, the surfer’s White Crest, the Beachcomber’s Cahoon Hollow, or the fisherman’s Newcomb Hollow. The new P.B. Boulangerie French Bakery along with the century-old South Wellfleet General store and the Blue Willow Bakery all offering tasty breakfast pastries, sandwiches and breads are en route to either the beach or the Bike Trail. Wellfleet’s Town Center is equally close, with art galleries, restaurants, shops and ice cream stands nearby. Action-oriented vacationers trot down to the nearby Town Landing for a morning paddle in their kayaks, while hikers enjoy numerous trails in the Fox Marsh Conservation Area.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Canoeing

Golf: Golfers and Tennis aficionados can hit the links and the courts, respectively. The Chequessett Yacht & Country Club is open to the public. Here you can play on an 18-hole course that has water views off the tee. Tennis Courts are available, or if you favor a slower, more traditional game, you can book some time at Oliver’s Clay Courts. The Club offers sailing lessons, so if you have children in tow they can learn to sail while you putt out.
