“alone in the crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We have visited this hotel on several vacations over the years. Our most recent stay was the first in close to a decade. It is a quiet place sitting above the bustling streets of Provincetown and the beaches of the National Seashore.The furnishings are simple and clean.The views from the grounds are quite impressive.Bonnie is the woman in charge and can steer you to many interesting places.She and her staff take a personal interest in the guests at this unique place.

Room Tip: The units are spread about the property and the view differs from each building.The staff helped sel...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We loved this simple motel. It is on a high point overlooking the Bay, about 5 miles from P-Town. You can bike there, or to various beaches and ponds nearby. Outer Reach has about 60 rooms, most with balconies; I would guess that they have close to 100 acres of property (no direct beach access). Rooms are simple, but have small fridges and are clean. Staff is friendly and laid-back. They have a Continental Breakfast (excellent coffee, bagels, muffins, juice) and you can outside on a big deck. I heard they are building a pool that will be done in late July. They also have one tennis court and a basketball court that needs to be re-surfaced.

We stayed here before the high season (early June) and it was very quiet. We chose it because of the reasonable price, proximity to stuff in the area, and also largely because they allow you to bring along dogs. They have a small dog park where you can run you pooch a little. Plus you can hike from there to the Ocean along various paths. The area is LOADED with ticks, so make sure that you check your four-legged friend after each walk. I do not exaggerate when I say that we found 30 ticks on our dog after a long hike.

Anyway, we would recommend the Outer Reach to anyone who is looking for an economical, dog-firendly, no-frills place a short hop from P-Town, Welfleet, etc. If you are looking for a fancy place, or a quaint little B&B, this is not the place for you. But we loved it (my wife, 14-year old son, and Boarder Collie).

Room Tip: There are about 5 rooms that have the best view of the Bay. I don't know the room numbers, but...

LOVED this place!--beautiful views from the highest point on the CAPE COD peninsula, great coffee in the complementary continental breakfast, songbirds abound outside (that I never hear in NYC) & they love your pet!--- WHAT more could you ask for? Nearby PILGRIM GARDENS beach is wild and pristine.
Swimming pool is coming soon, but there is a nearby pool to use, Bonnie along with the rest of the staff are friendly, happy & helpful.

Room Tip: some rooms have balcony/porches

We were very pleased. We did not bring our dogs on this trip , but next time we will. So close to P Town, but quiet, clean and private. So nice to discover a hideaway Hotel away form the others, with connections to downtown P Town. We would come back again, and will.. Thank you!!

our visit was very good. the dog was happy, hubby and wife happy! the rooms are out dated, BUT our room was very clean, cleaner than some of the 5 star resorts we have stayed in! the play yard for the dogs was awesome, bonnie and her staff made us feel part of the family, bonnie even surprised david and I with a beautiful table set with champagne glasses and a bottle of champagne to help us celebrate 20 of marriage and 9 months cancer free.1 so we had a lot to be thankful for, and the extra blessing making new friends! this is now our choosen spot when we come back to the cape thank you bonnie and everyone for making this a very special weekend god bless and love dave and deb wood

"Resort" is hardly a word I would use to describe the Outer Reach. Maybe when it was built in the 50s. But this place has seen better days. To be fair, the in-room brochure admits to its aging and worn condition. But, it was clean, reasonably priced, and accepted our dog. We just needed a place for one night, and this did the trick. Barely.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies overlooking Cape Cod Bay across the highway.
