About Molasses Creek
Molasses Creek’s inspiration arose amidst exotic fig trees and rich tidewater marshes of isolated Ocracoke Island, NC. Only accessible by ferry, Ocracoke is an enchanting step out of modern times into a world of captivating natural beauty, rich maritime history, ghostly shipwrecks, heroic lifesavers, crafty pirates, and a community of 900 independently minded residents.
