Comfortable and inviting home

  • 5 of 5

My experience was lovely. We were two couples and our time was part work and part vacation. Our home worked well for privacy and being together. Wecould walk to the beach the store and the bike rental. All and all great.

Wonderful place near everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stay here every summer with our extended family and it's amazing. Right next to the general store, PB Boulangerie, and just a 1/2 mile from Lecount Hollow beach. The property overlooks wetlands, which makes it different from everywhere else we've stayed on the Cape. You're close to Route 6, but look out over a natural area for as far as you can see. Great upgrade in the wi-fi this year.

Perfect Cape Cod vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Lost Oak Cottage in Wellfleet was an amazing vacation. I can't say enough about how much my family enjoyed our time there. The "cottage" is absolutely beautiful -- wonderful character and charming yet very spacious. With three floors of living space (and three full baths!), it was a great fit for our family. We loved the fact that we could actually walk to the bakery, restaurant, bike trail and even the beach (although we did drive the half mile to Lecount Hollow). It was so nice to have our morning coffee while sitting on the deck or in the screened-in porch, while overlooking the marsh. Bill and Joy were terrific hosts, and made us feel like family. We hope to come back next year!

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!

  • 4 of 5

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!
