About the area

People come to Wellfleet for so many different reasons. Most, though, come for the water. 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 Wellfleet's 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. The clear water is terrific for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or sailing. 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. Bring your gear or book a charter captain for a day of fishing to remember. Boating, be with motor, sail, or a paddle, is a big draw. Some bring their own vessels, while others beg, borrow, or rent their way onboard. If you've got your own craft, you're set-to-jet. But if you want to get on the water there are motor- and sailboats available for rent, lessons to take, or day-charters to get you out and about. Head to Great Island, Jeremy Point or Billingsgate Island to watch the seals. Kayaking is an increasingly popular pastime. Blackfish Creek and Fox Marsh, some 75 yards away from Hidden Hollow Cottage, are in the top 5 destination spots in Wellfleet. You can walk down to the Town Landing, paddle, and be back home without having to load up your vehicle. Hiking the miles of trails around this Cape Cod Vacation Home 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. If you prefer to hit the trails on your mountain bike, you can get started right out the door and ride through the Fox Marsh trails. 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. Many folks like the activities in Wellfleet. From the boutique shopping and antiquing, the art galleries (be sure to check out the Friday Night Gallery Stroll), and a variety of restaurants, you're sure to have a ball. There are countless activities spread throughout the week, like the Sunday concert series at the Congregational Church, Square Dancing at the Harbor, even Shakespeare Performances at Baker Field overlooking Mayo Beach.

“Paradise in Wellfleet”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

This home could not have been more perfect for our extended family of 9 including grandchildren ages 2,6 and 9. The location is in a secluded tree lined spot but a short walk away from the marsh and short drive away from 4 beaches, bike trails and the wonderful town of Wellfleet. The home is on four levels with steps to each but not long or steep. Four beautiful bedrooms and two baths, and a wonderful living area with dining space for 10 and perfectly appointed kitchen. Our son is a chef and cooked most all of our meals and he had everything he needed including an outdoor grill on a large deck that also had table and seating for 10. When going to the beach we found an outdoor beach closet full of towels, beach chairs, sand buckets, umbrella, tent, skim boards and noodles to play with. The owners live in Wellfleet so when we had a problem with the dishwasher they were right on it and had it repaired before we returned from the beach! Our stay was perfect and in the perfect home. We celebrated my husbands 70th Birthday on the beach with a bonfire dinner of hot dogs and s'mores (We had cooked lobsters the night before) I hope that this Hidden Hollow property is available for many years to come as we most certainly want to bring our family back.

Owner's reply: Martha - We're so happy you all had a nice trip!

“Perfect birthday weekend”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2012

We chose the first weekend of fall to celebrate my husband's birthday with family and friends and this house was the perfect setting. The rooms were well decorated and modern and the kitchen had everything we needed! We stayed in for most of the time and the layout provided spaces for privacy and also for a large gathering since there was the deck, kitchen and living room all connected on the top floor. My niece loved the books and videos!

“Wellfleet Bay Amazing Stay”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2012

The Hidden Hollow Cottage was the perfect house for a winter weekend in Wellfleet - truly a spectacular location and well set up for two families. We travel to Wellfleet often and this was by far the best rental place we have stayed at.

“Wonderful vacation rental”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2011

The best equipped house we have ever rented. Furnishings were lovely and the extra amenities were wonderful. (beach chairs, bikes, computer, etc) The location is great, very convenient to the town of Wellfleet and also to the ocean beaches.

The home is really brilliant! Just when you think you need something...you open a drawer and find it. Even with a family of married couples with and without kids, we were able to come up with a good floor plan. It was so nice to have evertyhing already supplied when we got here. It was a pleasure to meet Tom and Angela. Your home flows so nicely and is so private with beautiful grounds.

What a spectacularly beautiful place. Quiet, peaceful, comfortable. We loved your selection of cookbooks and continued our tradition of eating in every night.
Martha & Family-August '09

The kitchen is the best stocked we've seen - even sharp knives! The owners are extremely nice, even when we discovered that a frisbee does indeed break double-paned glass! We brough back family game night! Fun was had by all.
David & Family-July '09

We loved the house-definitely the nicest summer rental we've ever had! The boys enjoyed the bunk room and we had a great birthday celebration on the deck. Every room was decorated beautifully and we felt so relaxed. And thank you for the oysters plucked from down the road!"
Cecilia & Family-July '09

It was nice to just "chill" in the house. As we traveled from Ireland we brought the bare minimum so we appreciated the towels, toys, beach stuff and even the colouring books. Thank you for that!
Cecilia's Friends-July '09

Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us. We truly enjoyed our week!

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Keer: We just arrived at Hidden Hollow today, but couldn't wait to thank you for the warm welcome we received. We really appreciated the coffee, jam and wine, as well as the sunflowers and hydrangea. Most of all we are so impressed by your beautiful home, and the pains you have taken to make guests feel at home. My wife and daughters join me in thanking you for going above and beyond our expectations. We're already thinking how difficult it's going to be to leave!
