Welcome to the Inn at The Moors at the tip of Cape Cod in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Of all Provincetown lodgings, hotels, accommodations, inns, motels, and B&Bs, we are the most well known for our gorgeous location. No other accommodations offer as much quiet, seclusion, natural beauty, and privacy that is also accessible to nearby shopping, dining, beaches, bike trails, nightlife and the non-stop party known as Provincetown on Commercial Street. We are exactly one mile from the center, shops, cafés, restaurants and bars spread east and west for half a mile in each direction. We are 1/2 mile from the west end of town, which is the most active.
It is no exaggeration; the views are breathtaking. The trajectory of sun from dawn to dusk on the tidal pools creates a stunning palette of color ending in unbelieveable sunsets. Many guests sit throughout the day and simply watch the play of light, the tides ebb and flow, birds soaring in and out on gentle currents and heron fishing at low tide. (Bring your binocculars!)
Later at night, you will marvel at the zillions of crisp stars in night skies and moon popping up here and there to delight you.
If you're looking for reasonably priced, fresh accommodations with priceless views and want to sleep by the edge of the sea, you've found the place.
Especially beautiful is the changing of the tides. The moors floods twice a day with seawater that reflects sand dunes, blue skies with white cumulus clouds and rainbow-colored sunsets.
Come summertime, the moors is an emerald network of rivulets — best explored by a kayaker. From its wide mouth, the moors is also an ideal place for a high tide swim. Depths reach eight feet and the sandy bottom is clear as daylight.
After Labor Day, the vibrant and life-affirming green hues change rapidly, morphing into an amber wave of sea grass to create a giant pumpkin for Halloween. In the quiet of the night, you can hear the ocean waves crashing on the beach across the moors.
About the Inn and Us
The inn, formerly called The Moors Motel, was built in the 1950s by a local Portuguese family who also built the famous Moors Restaurant (now condos). Proprietors Diane and Loretta have owned the property since 1992. When they retired from their respective teaching and nursing careers in 2002, they moved (with their cat Bob) into the penthouse on property. Off-season, they reside in Brookline, Massachusetts.
