Quiet, quaint, everything we needed

My wife, brother, his wife and myself spent 2 nights at the Inn. We were doing 5 nights total in the Cape and this place came highly recommended by a co-worker. We didn't know much about the area and coming from Toronto the same day as our first night, we were really hoping it would not disappoint. It did not! I opted to be dropped off at the Idle Times bike shop, a town south of Wellfleet in Eastham and rode the Cape Cod trail to the hotel, this was a beautiful option as I was the first to see the amazing Atlantic ocean views. Once we saw the property, we were instantly relaxed and were impressed at how relaxing the atmosphere was. Our room was one of four in the 'Saltworks' house; a 200+ year old home with a nice closed in porch to sit and read. The rooms were sufficient in size, with a double bed (my brother and wife had 2 singles) and a shared bathroom between the us two couples. (Not all rooms had this; some had their own bathroom, we booked the last rooms available...) For us the shared bath was okay, as it was family we were sharing it with. Some of the reviews mentioned how poorly appointed these rooms were; while its not brand new amenities, it had a shower/tub, toilet, A/C and outlets, I'm not sure what else you need? Personally, the simplicity of it all relaxed me, reminding us all that we only need the necessities to be happy. After all, how much time are you spending in the rooms anyway? The rooms were spotless and had linens, soap, cups and anything else you would expect. No complaints here. Breakfast was nice and simple. Fruit, bagels, baked goods, cereal and great coffee. You could sit in the small dining room or out in the screened in porch. The lobby was even relaxing, with antique furniture, wi-fi (if you really need it...) and someone always around to help you out. I have to say, Maureen was extremely helpful the entire time and I want to say thank you for all her help. The town of Wellfleet is great too; awesome food, shops and of course the ocean is a 3 minute drive away. Don't miss the Beachcomber; a great beach front restaurant and bar. Overall, we were very happy with the Inn at Duckcreek. It was relaxing, but still close to the action in Provincetown (20 minute drive). We hope to be back to the Cape sometime, this place would be at the top of our list. Thanks again for a great place to stay.

Friendly and comfortable inn

The Inn at Duck Creek was friendly and accommodating, very clean, with quaint rooms. The staff are kind and helpful. The inn is a convenient 5 minute walk from the main shopping area and a short drive or bike ride to beaches.

My Duck Creeke Inn stays 2010-2011

This inn has to be one of the most economical in its class. I stayed three nights in August, 2011 and last summer (I shared a bath both times but don't mind that; there are rooms with private baths, but I opted for cheaper). My rooms were pristine, the beds firm (I have a lower-back "issue"). The grounds, including the creek, are pretty, the folks at the front desk courteous and thoughtful. Ask for anything and if they can do it, they will. The adjacent tavern has a nice wine list, a moderately priced, good menu (mussels hors d'oeuvre outstanding).

Love the Duck Creek Tavern

Our last trip to the Duck Creek Tavern was delicious, cozy, and fun. Not only did we have great food but Judy, the owner, treated us like family.

Quiet and Comfy Alternative

Revisited this lovely old captain's house inn after a few years and found things even better than before! The rooms are quaint, clean and comfortable...many have been spruced up since my last visit. The staff was full of local knowledge and kind enough to let me look around at rooms in the Saltworks and Carriage Houses, as I am looking for a group visit in the Fall. The gardens and grounds have gotten a facelift while keeping the lovely old trees and the pond is always a pleasure...osprey and of course DUCKS. The Tavern featured a variety of items on the menu and folks from children to grandparents all seemed to be enjoying their fare. The seafood is fabulous and the atmosphere is casual and fun. Lots of locals hanging out to enjoy live music - not loud rock, but cool jazz - just my style. I found the Inn at Duck Creeke, once again, a refreshing alternative to the stale environs of a motel or the stuffy attitude of the fancy places now springing up all over the lower cape. It is comfortable, friendly and provides a great place to explore from - minutes to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking, Mass Audubon for bird watching, National Seashore for beaches, and a lovely stroll to Wellfleet Harbor.
