My husband and I stayed at the Sleeping Duck last summer during a brief stay in Duck, NC. We absolutely love this area of the Outer Banks and it was our second visit to the area. This time we decided to try a new place to stay and really enjoyed our time at this B&B. We stayed in the Blue... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and hated to leave. It is the type of place we could stay at for many more days. Carolyn, our hostess, was very sweet and concerned about our comfort. She was friendly and helpful without going overboard. Our room, the Wood Duck, was cozy and warm and the king bed was... More

My husband and I spent a few nights at the Sleeping Duck and enjoyed our stay. The B&B is conveniently located to the beach and to several restaurants in Duck. It is also close enough for an early morning walk on the boardwalk. Our visit was not during the summer rush so there were not a lot of people in... More

My girlfriend and I looked for a quiet and cozy place to have a few relaxing days in outer banks. The sleeping duck was the perfect choice. Carollyn cared for everything with her warm-hearted manner. The rooms are excellent, we spent a rainy day in the lovely place enjoying the nicely equipped living room, kitchen and billard room. We would... More

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B with Carolyn. We come to Duck every year during the summer with our family, however, each fall for the past 2 years we have celebrated our anniversary at the Sleeping Duck. It really does feel like home away from home. The rooms are very comfortable and... More

While I was working in Duck for the summer, my boyfriend and I stayed in this gorgeous B&B. It was a last minute check in and I nipped in one afternoon and in the next few days we had checked in and were enjoying bagels every morning. Carolyn even offered and let us borrow her car as we are from... More

This place is just adorable. The proprietor is a lovely older woman who makes sure you have everything you need. She has coffee, fruit, and fresh bagels ready for you when you wake up. We stayed in the Wood Duck room, in which the bed is very comfortable. The Inn is also walking distance from the beach and restaurants, which... More

We stay at bed and breakfasts all the time. Some are wonderful, some are fair, and some are bad. The sleeping duck is wonderful. My hubby and I came for our anniversary and it did not dissapoint. We stayed in the blue winged teal room. The room has a shower, and not a tub, but that was just fine with... More

We have just returned from The Outer Banks and were very pleased with our accommodations at the beautiful inn. The inn is open and spacious with great attention to detail. Carolyn makes ever effort to accommodate. We stayed in The Mallard Room. Gorgeous color, great bed, and very spacious room. Well worth the price.
