About Rob and Shauna Werner

Rob and Shauna Werner live on Rings Island near Newburyport, MA. They founded a non-profit corporation that operates charitable thrift stores throughout New England. The proceeds are donated to food pantries and other local charities. Shauna has spent every summer of her life at Happy Hill. Their three children have spent every summer of their lives at Happy Hill. Their two daughters are still lifeguards on the National Seashore. Happy Hill was purchased in 1975 by Shauna's parents Bob and Mary Callary.

Rob and Shauna Werner purchased this house in 1975

Why Rob and Shauna Werner chose Cape Cod

Happy Hill was built in 1810 by Ebenezer Paine who's relatives came to North America on the Mayflower. In 2012, Rob Werner began a three year renovation of the house and cottage costing over $200,000. The porch ceiling, kitchen bar, dining table and 2nd floor woodwork were all made from the original 200 year old floor boards.

The house and its private two acre lot is perched on a small hill overlooking the village at Pond Road. Once settled on Happy Hill, you can enjoy the privacy of your own estate or explore the beauty and splendor of the magical outer cape.

What makes this house unique

The house features three separate living spaces, each with bathrooms, kitchens, and decks. Multiple families can spend the day and meals together in the larger common areas of the main houses' first floor. At the evenings end, each can retire to a more private sleeping area. Walk or bike ride to the calm bay beaches or to the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. A shuttle bus will take you to Provincetown for a memorable time in that unique seaport town.

Lovely home and terrific hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home to stay on the Cape! Beautiful usable space for three families with a relaxing porch and all the supplies you need for the beach (plus kayaks!). You can also walk to a great restaurant and market (Captains Choice and Salty Market). Great sandwiches at Salty and loved the fish tacos at Captains Choice-also a good breakfast after a run to the beach. The Truro town beaches are awesome-you can get a permit for campfires on the beaches from the Fire House to have fires on the beach you choose from 6-10 pm and guess what? We even saw a whale at town beach at the end of Coast Gaurd St. Amazing! Plus a ton of seals every evening! The shuttle is a great way to get into Ptown if you don't want to pay to park (about $15 to $20 for a day- but if you park at the Monument for $15- you do get one free pass and worth climbing to the top for some great pics!) you off right on the Pier. Truro Winery (wine is okay and if you like gin or rum-there is also a tasting for this) is across the street from the cottage and they also have yoga on Thursday mornings. The Black Fish food truck is also there-delicious food! Savory pizza on Rte 6 has THE best Almond Joy ice cream-pizza isn't bad, but the ice cream makes it! Go to Cuffy's in Ptown for very reasonably priced sweatshirts (good quality too!). If you want to take a drive into Wellfleet-highly recommend Mac's Shack for the raw bar and sushi/lobster roll-center of Wellfleet and different from the one in P-town. Just amazing and relaxing week! Worth every penny😊?

Happy Hill was the perfect spot for our group of Mid-Western friends to reconnect. We enjoyed morning coffee and sun on the porch each morning.

The house is nicely updated and very comfortably fit 10 of us. It is in walking distance to an adorable winery and very close to P-town. Everyone in town seemed to know Happy Hill and greeted us warmly! We also found an amazing fish market that delivers lobster dinners to the house!

Rob and Shauna were very helpful throughout the entire process of renting the home and staying in it. They answered questions promptly, provided many great recommendations for our stay, and took time to check in with us once we arrived to make sure we were comfortable.

We would love to come back and stay at Happy Hill again!

Amazing stay, amazing house!

We enjoyed a three-night stay at Happy Hill and could not have asked for more. Rob was so accommodating throughout the booking process and our stay, gave us great recommendations and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Great time at Happy Hill.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful week at Happy Hill. The accommodations were perfect for our large family that includes three generations. There are wonderful spaces throughout the property that met the needs of both children and adults. Its proximity to N. Truro center, the winery and the beach are a definite plus. Rob provided helpful information about the area and Happy Hill while being very attentive to our needs. We certainly hope to return next summer.

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family reunion in July at this lovely property. My parents stayed in the cottage and we stayed in the main house. The house condition was excellent. It looks like it was just renovated. We enjoyed having the screened in porch and the back deck was nice to sit on at dusk. It was just a short walk to the general store and we took advantage of the frequent bus to Provincetown so we didn't have to fight traffic and find parking. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

Happy Hill - Truro

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, large, well laid out and all brand new. We were a party of 10(4 adults and 6 kids) and we all fit very comfortably and never wanted for more space. In fact, the home is so well laid out that it has 3 distinct living areas, so when privacy was wanted it could be accomplished easily.

The kitchen is large and bright, and well stocked for a rental and all appliances were new and worked well.

The screened in back porch was large enough to eat meals in and the deck was a quiet, inviting area to recount the day's events, with a constant but gentle breeze coming from the bay. Bonuses to the stay included 2 kayaks, 5 bikes and a large circular driveway to park 5 cars in easily. The location of the home was ideally situated to head to P'Town or Welfleet for meals and entertainment, but your needs could just as easily be accommodated by the local Salty's Market and Captain's Choice Restaurant(walking distance to the house).

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and the owners Rob and Shauna have done a fantastic job to make sure your experience exceeds your expectations!
