I recently stayed at the Duck Smith House while visiting the great pottery town of Seagrove. After spending the day seeing different potters, I was welcomed to the Duck Smith House by Barbara and Suzanne. I have never stayed at a true bed and breakfast like this one. It is very obvious that the sisters want you to feel welcome... More

If you want a comfy, lovely place to stay in quaint Seagrove-you have found the spot. Barbara and Suzanne treated us like family (in the best way!). They accommodated us by welcoming us with a last minute check-in and we were able to stay in 2 of the rooms. We spent 3 nights and every breakfast in the sunny dining... More

Wonderful B &B with excellent hostesses. It was exceptionally clean and the breakfast was out of this world! They made us a cheese appetizer the afternoon we arrived to enjoy with our wine on the porch. The back yard has many bird feeders where you can observe quite a show!

We stayed at the Duck Smith House for two nights while visiting the NC Zoo (about 15 minutes away) and exploring the 100 or so pottery businesses in surrounding neighborhoods. The four-bedroom guest house is on a beautiful 3.5 acre lot with a variety of log outbuildings. Our hosts, Barbara and Suzanne, were well prepared for us when we arrived... More

I have stayed at the Duck Smith House Inn three times and each time was enjoyable and beyond most any other B&B experience. What makes this place unique are Barbara and Suzanne, owners and sisters, who are so warm and friendly and accommodating. The house is beautiful and super clean with very comfortable beds. Birders will enjoy the sisters' elaborate... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary, and since she loves pottery we wanted to spend a couple of days in Seagrove. I booked the Duck Smith house on line. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by Suzanne Murphy who with her sister Barbara own the B&B. Just a short chat with these sweet ladies and we... More

Barbara and Suzanne, We now feel like family, We don't have a greater compliment than that! But we will say we have never stayed at a B&B with the attention to detail, the cleanliness and over the top service Susan and I have experienced here at the Duck Smith House on our 14th Wedding Anniversary! You too made that possible.... More

If you like extremely clean accommodations, convenient location to the potters in Seagrove, & wonderful hospitality, you're going to love The Duck Smith B&B. With it's incredible bird sanctuary (Rose Breasted Grossbeak, Eastern Towhee, Titmouse, Blue Birds, Chipping Sparrows, Goldfinch, Blue Grossbeak, Indigo Bunting, Chickadees, & more) right out back, lovely potted plants, flowers, greenery, fresh flowers on your breakfast...

This was our first visit to this B&B. We were graciously greeted, provided with a pre dinner cheese and cracker plate and enjoyed it on the lovely and cool front porch. Our bedrooms were comfortable, fresh and roomy. Then the breakfast the next morning was awesome! Fresh fruit, yogurt, fabulous french toast and eggs. It was really splendid!
