When we arrived at the Duck Smith House, we were greeted by Suzanne and Barbara and felt right at home. The house is immaculate and clean and the grounds are beautiful. The breakfast was homemade and simply delicious. We have stayed at other Bed and Breakfast homes and this experience was by far the best. Any time that we are in North Carolina, we will be staying at the Duck Smith House.
Home away from Home

This was my second visit to the Duck Smith House. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by Barbara and Suzanne with open arms. First thing they said was "Welcome Home" to me. That is the way these special two ladies made me feel the whole visit.
The house and furnishings are beautiful. Special details and personal touches are abundant through out. The beds are comfortable and prove to give a restful nights sleep. Breakfast, you're in for a treat ! Barbara does most of the cooking. She is a wonderful cook. My last breakfast there included fresh peach pancakes, eggs and sausages. Suzanne started breakfast off with a special strawberry parfait with yogurt, granola. It was light and refreshing. Good thing, because the breakfast is very hearty and filling !
Make sure to ask about the history of the house and grounds. It's fascinating !
I can't wait for my next retreat at the Duck Smith House. Thank you Barbara and Suzanne for making my stays so special.
Feels like coming home

I stayed for just one night at the The Duck Smith House, located in a scenic and exciting region of North Carolina. Yet, this was sufficient time to recommend this B&B boundlessly. Arriving there, reminded me of coming home in my childhood days: a beautiful, authentic house that offers more than a simple bed: it is a real home. The beds are fantastic and the breakfast is great. The best about The Duck Smith House are naturally Barbara and Suzanne, its owners. They were caring for a comfortable stay from the first to the last minute. Memorable!

The Duck Smith House was fabulous. The beds were absolutely amazing, the rooms and house were extremely clean and adorably decorated. The breakfast was wonderful, we couldn't wait to see what was being served the next day. Barbara and Suzanne were exceptional host, they were very helpful in knowing what to do and where to eat. All of their suggestions did not disappoint. We felt very comfortable and relaxed, from sitting on the porch to enjoying the beautiful breakfast room. Overall an A+ trip and highly recommended, we will be back.
What a SURPRISE!

My husband planned an anniversary getaway to Seagrove. He would not tell me anything......when we arrived at the Duck Smith House, Barbara and Suzanne and of course Daisy greeted us outside at the car. The house is beautiful and we were the only guests for the night. Barbara and Suzanne are so great and gracious and fun to talk to. The evening snack and the breakfast were fantastic! We would definitely recommend a stay at their b and b. They made our surprise anniversary stay a special one. THANK YOU
Magical. Fairytale. Peace. Reset.

By far the BEST B&B I've ever stayed at. Why?
1.) quaint, cosy, cute -not in an old-kind-of-way-that-I-use-quaint-because-it's-not-really-that-great-kind-of-way. Quaint, cosy & cute in the MOST perfect-fairytale-dream-kind of way. It's like walking into the pages of a fairytale ending. You'll want to come back again&again 'cause it's absolute MAGIC.
2.) CLEAN. I'm a neat-freak/clean-freak/germaphobe. 11 out of 10 stars for cleanliness. Seriously. I'm usually afraid to take my shoes off in most hotels/B&B's, never drink out of the glasses, etc. But this place -not only did I take my shoes off, I walked around in my BARE feet, drank out of their glasses (crystal to be exact), &felt perfectly comfortable:safe knowing it was CLEAN. Love that!
3.) Service is beyond anything I would ever expect. I plugged in my phone charger next to my bed -the electrical outlet was behind bed. Next day, they tied a little blue ribbon into the cord/hung it on the bed post, to keep it in plain sight, make it easy to find&remind me it was there so I wouldn't forget it when I left. SERIOUSLY? Who does that?
4.) Breakfast.is.to.die.for.yummy. OMGOMGOMG. Things you'd never find at even 5star hotels. I've stayed at many 5star hotels across the U.S. -those places have nothing over the culinary skills&service provided by these 2sisters. Baked grapefruit meringue, stuffed crepes, pumpkin waffles. Thought we died&went to heaven.
5.) PEACE. I found myself drawn to watching the birds, appreciating the trees&setting. One evening, sat out on the front porch to write some thoughts, was delighted to see fireflies light up the garden -as if in a visual symphony JUST for me. So magical! Fairytale-like! I thought I was in a dream the entire time I was here.
The best thing about Duck Smith B&B is that Suzanne&Barbara love what they do. It shows in the attention to detail, love & care with which they do everything. We felt like pampered princesses when we stayed here. (My daughter & I)

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights with the Long Island ladies at the Duck Smith House. Peaceful, clean, great food. We will return on our next trip through pottery country.

Once again, we stayed at the Duck Smith House after a trip to the NC Zoo. We do this annually, and it really is a tradition for our family. The hospitality the sisters offer is wonderful, and they have a gorgeous house. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and breakfasts are always incredible. Super peaceful sitting on the porch, or walking around and watching the birds soar in the backyard. We'll be back!

The sisters are charming and the house is lovely--especially the porch. Breakfast is always delicious... and the share the recipes!

This was my first time at a bed and breakfast and the sisters made it wonderful. I would stay at a bed and breakfast again because of them. They give you just the right amount of attention to make you feel so very special and you come to feel as if they are your long lost friends.
