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 towels and chairs so you don't need to bring your own. I found the inn keepers to be very friendly and helpful, even loaned us their personal cooler to take to the beach when ours broke. Breakfasts were excellent, generally consisting of fresh fruit and usually a hot item (quiche, pancake, etc), sometimes home made scones or blueberry cake, coffee and juice as well as cold cereal available for those that were still hungry (we certainly never felt the need). The place is immaculate and there is a very nice public area with puzzles, games, books, etc. This is an excellent option for those that want to spend time at the beach who aren't interested in the typical beach rental house.
