The Sleeping Duck is no longer yellow, it is blue in color. I didn't spend a great deal of time at my B & B as I had family staying elsewhere and spent time with them. However, the owner and her grown son were very accommodating and lovely people. The property itself is fantastic with a little sprucing up (just... More

This is a great spot on the edge of town, and Carolyn did a great job of making me feel at home. Wish I had had more time, but was just around for a couple of nights for a wedding. Still, I enjoyed the accommodations and location :) Thanks! Wendy

I stayed at The Sleeping Duck for 4 nights to have a relaxing break from work. The owner, Carolyn, is wonderful and made me feel right at home. Breakfast was simple - a bagel and fruit, but because of this there was no set breakfast time so I could eat whenever I got up. The rooms and bathrooms are large... More

Had the pleaseure of staying at the Sleeping Duck Inn last weekend and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway to the OBX! The inn is clean and close to everything you would want to experience in Duck. From beaching it, to shopping to watching sunsets on the sound this was the perfect location! I recommend bringing your... More

My Mom and I went on a impromptu trip to the Outer Banks while she was visiting from California. We have driven through Duck before and vowed to stay there if we ever made it back out to the Outer Banks. It is definitely quieter and less commercial, but still has lots of fun shopping boutiques and great restaurants. If... More

Everything was clean and well kept. Breakfast was only ok. Pre-order your bagel day before, and you also get coffee and fruit. The location was perfect for everything Duck! The beach was great and easy to access.

My mother and I spent the weekend in the outer banks. This b&b was quaint and not too far from many local attractions. We stayed in the Wood Duck room. The bed and bathroom were spacious and well kept. Carolyn was a sweetheart and a wonderful hostess. The whole trip was a success and we would come back in a... 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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1989 by The Ball Family, The Sleeping Duck is located in the quaint Town of Duck, N.C. We are minutes away from local shopping centers and restaurants whether you are walking, driving, or riding a bike. This charming and spacious bed and breakfast is just off of Duck Rd, next to Amy Lane, and across the street from the "Welcome to Duck" sign with the hand-carved duck. The Atlantic Ocean is roughly a fifteen minute walk from our front door, with a secluded access to the Currituck Sound just over the hill behind us. ... more   less
