I think this is the only Bed and Breakfast in Duck, which is helpful because renting a beach house is hard to afford for a couple for the weekend! Halfway between ocean and town. Not as close to the beach as I thought from advertising and you can barely glimpse the ocean from deck. The town could use sidewalks. But... More

It is hard to find single rooms for a few nights in Duck (especially in the center of town), but this gem is the perfect compromise! A great location, beautiful home, and wonderful hosts. Good breakfast variety! Would definitely recommend.

We've stayed twice at Advice 5 Cents and loved both visits. We had found it randomly online but were thrilled with our choice and it felt like we were staying with old friends. The house is lovely, beautifully furnished and each room is different, but all lovely. A beautiful beachhouse simply furnished and not frilly as a lot of B... More

We are so thankful we found this B&B for our weekend stay! My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our stay. Easy walk to the beach and shopping/dining in Duck. Our room was clean and a great size for our weekend stay. Nancy was very friendly and helpful with information about the area. She also helped us start... More

This B&B is one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. Our 5-night stay here through Columbus Day weekend was outstanding. The owner/manager, Nancy, was friendly, very helpful with area recommendations, and was a wonderful cook for our delicious breakfasts. The inn is very spacious with guest access to a huge great room with comfy furniture, a large... More

Although we had gone on a cruise to celebrate our 45th Wedding Anniversary, the actual weekend of our Anniversary and my birthday approached and threatened to be just a "stay at home weekend". Last minute decision we booked two nights at "Advice 5 cents bed and breakfast". This was a very good decision. The house is beautiful! We had the... More

Very clean. Great service by the owner. Location is wonderful. Three night stay was just excellent I would highly recommend this place for a couple looking to be by the ocean but not overwhelmed by noise.

It was my husband and I's first trip to a B&B. The house was lovely, it was quiet. The room was very clean. We arrived in the evening after check in. The rules were on our dresser with our receipt from the payment we made over the phone. It was a bit overpriced, we only stayed a night though. I... More

Recently stayed here with my wife for 4 nights. There are very few options for those that want a shorter stay than the typical week long beach rental. Advice 5 Cents is an excellent option. Location is great, right around the corner from the main dowtown area of Duck. Beach is an easy 0.4 mile walk and they provide beach... More
