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 England and had no way to travel around the outer banks other than taxis. She even gave my boyfriend a lift to the airport twice as his first flight was cancelled. Also her son Shane provided me with a taxi service that would be able to pick my boyfriend up from Norfolk airport for a very reasonable price. The room was lovely and I wouldn't have wanted to spend the week anywhere else. It's only a short walk to the beach and Duck shops. If I ever return to the Outer Banks this is where I will be staying!
- 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
