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.

Why Bill & Joy O'Connor chose South 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.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Bill and Joy continually update the property- the cottage is clean and has everything one would need for a vacation. We love our "treats" at the Boulangerie at the corner, and the seafood (both fresh and take out) at Mac's Market in Eastham is highly recommended.
Location is close to the beach as well as the Wireless Road. The Wireless Road will take you to Marconi Station and White Cedar Swamp-a nice 40 minute round trip walk. Another fine place to explore is Wellfleet Audubon-just down Route 6.
The Cape Cod Bike Trail is at the end of the driveway-and bicycles and helmets are provided.
We highly recommend the Road House!
Fantastic stay for two
The cottage was spotless and charming. We loved sitting on the screen porch at night, and having breakfast in the sun on the patio watching hummingbirds and bumble bees. It was close to everything we wanted; great restaurants, beaches and nature areas, the bike trail, and Provincetown night life. We had everything we could possibly need (extra blankets, a fan, umbrella, pool noodles, flashlight, blender, iron) It made packing for vacation a breeze. We can't wait to come back!
awesome cottage feels like our second home.
Bill and Joy are thoughtful and responsive, have provided just about every amenity that exceed expectations for a comfortable stay which is why we have been returning every summer for the past 7 years. The property is very well maintained and it seems they are continually adding nice touches. It is about a 15 minute walk to an ocean beach. You can easily access the beginning of the bike trail from the cottage as well as a small village with a general store, bakery and post office. It is a short ride to Wellfleet center's shops and restaurants, and convenient to Truro and Provincetown. Some of our favorite restaurants are Winslows Tavern (on Main Street, lovely outdoor seating among the trees), Blackfish (the best!)and Terra Luna in Truro and Napi's in P-town. We would highly recommend this gem for a memorable outer cape experience.

Perfect Place for a Cape Vacation for 2
My wife and I rented the Roadhouse Cottage and found it cozy, comfortable, and clean. However, the best part of this vacation was the location. The Roadhouse is conveniently located so that you can walk to several good restaurants (Blue Willow, the Bistro) and hiking trails, is within a stones throw of the Cape Cod Bike Trail, and is just a half mile from a beautiful beach. There are also many attraction nearby within a 10 to 20 minute drive. Highly Recommend!!
a perfect launching pad for our Cape Cod vacations
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
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.
