Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why is this property so special?
A: It's the most photographed property in town well over 200 years old. Historical and authentic! As well, we are the much celebrated Cherry Stone Gallery 45 years in the business. Our history is none short of fascinating if not captivating. And we're gosh darn proud of it!
Q: What's the coolest nearby activity?
A: The beaches!

Then
Walking across Duck Creeke to the Bench Book. Bring your morning coffee or a late afternoon "milkshake." Have a quiet sit-down and read everyone's informal prose and then enter your own. This is a Wellfleet literary community way of inviting you to make a memorable mark in a private spot on the shores of our protected tidal creek.
Q: What makes Duck Creeke exceptional?
A: This salt water tidal inlet is ranked one of the most biologically productive ecosystems on earth, providing nursery grounds for vital species of birds, fish and shellfish. It serves as a filter for removal of sediments and pollution from the water.

Salt marsh vegetation is constantly inundated with varying water levels dependent on the twice-daily influence of the high and low tides. Soil in the salt marsh remains permanently saturated, forming a substrate affectionately known in the Lowcountry as “pluff mud.” Each year, the salt marsh vegetation, predominantly Spartina alterniflora, (commonly referred to as Smooth cordgrass) goes dormant in the winter months and grows back in the spring. This is obvious to the naked eye as the salt marsh appears brown and drab in the winter, vibrant green in the summer months, and near golden in the fall. As the Smooth cordgrass dies, it decays to form the base of a complex food web supporting not only next year’s salt marsh growth, but also a diverse array of animal life. In areas located upriver thus further away from the ocean, the water is less salty; the dominant plant in the salt marsh is Juncus romarieanus (commonly referred to as Black needlerush).
