“Cossetted and Immaculate”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

Perfect in every detail, Barbara and Suzanne have thought of everything in decorating, amenities, comfort, breakfast. They are warm and friendly, and the B&B is in the perfect location for potterying in Seagrove and visiting the zoo in Asheboro. Asheboro has several good restaurants they can recommend. And you get a preview of some of the pottery in their bright and cosy breakfast room.

Room Tip: only 4 rooms as this is a small B&B. one room has two beds, the others have one.

The sisters Barbara and Suzzanne are wonderful hosts and helpful with their knowledge of the area.

The home is historic with all wood walls and ceilings. We stayed in the charming Waverly bedroom on the second floor. Several windows provide warming morning light. Cable TV and internet access is available in the room. The private bath is well appointed.

For a pleasant visit to the Seagrove pottery area of NC, I recommend Duck Smith B&B.

The Duck Smith House B&B is a very clean and quaint place to stay. The sisters have put a lot of work into restoring this house and transforming it into what it is today. The breakfast was delicious.

It is located on a main road through Seagrove, so you can expect some traffic noise. Although there is not a ton of traffic in Seagrove to begin with. The quietest most private room is The Summit Room.

This is one of the only B&Bs that I am aware of that has a room with two single beds. This is great for siblings traveling together.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a quieter experience, you may want to bring a "white-noise" machine...

Words don't capture the magnificence of this wonderful gem of an inn. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome and cared for. If you are headed anywhere near Seagrove, NC, you can't pass up this one-of-a-kind B&B. It is immaculate, tastefully decorated, the breakfasts are beyond description, and Barbara and Suzanne even offered us late afternoon snacks to accompany the wine we brought along to enjoy after a long day browsing pottery shops and visiting the zoo. What a treat it was!

Room Tip: Every room is gorgeous and comfortable. Just visit the website and view them, as the photos are acc...

Sisters Suzanne and Barbara Murphy are the best owners of a B&B and we have been to many in the US and Europe. The B&B is spotless and the beds are so comfortable. All of the accessories whether linens or glassware is top drawer. The breakfast room is charming and the breakfast is delicious. We would return in a minute. The backyard is a great place to relax after a day of seeing the potteries on 705, the pottery highway.

Room Tip: Everyone of the 4 rooms are outstanding.

We live near Charlotte, NC and had wanted to see what Seagrove was all about. We found the Duck Smith House online, and were charmed. Once there, we realized it was one of the few places where reality beat the presentation. Having your hosts come out of the house to greet you makes you feel less a home invader, and the two sisters, Barb and Suze continued to make us feel comfortable throughout the visit. Very knowledgable about the area's history and pottery business, they made it easy for us to navigate the maze of pottery offerings. Their recommendations for dining were also spot on. The king size bed we had was very plush, with a memory foam mattress that lulled us to sleep, and the breakfasts we had were so good we stuffed ourselves even though it was more than we should eat! We will definitely stay here if we ever return for another pottery shopping spree.

We were given a very warm welcome by Suzanne and Barbara, the two sisters who own and run this very pleasant b & b. I sat out in the garden watching a great variety of birds who flocked to the many feeders hanging from a huge black walnut tree. We slept very well in the king size bed on the ground floor and then enjoyed a very generous breakfast of French toast stuffed with cream cheese, pecans and pineapple with sausages, and copious amounts of coffee. On a two week tour of the south this was also the cleanest place we stayed and the warmest welcome.
