Spring 2014 getaway

5 on April 07, 2014

Had a fabulous stay at the Bed and Breakfast at Mallard Bay. We took our two young children with us and it was just a wonderful time. Phoebe was very accommodating and had toys for the kids to play with at the house and toys for them to take to the beach too! and of course the breakfasts were wonderful as well! Will definitely go back again!

Innkeeper Response
thanks so much. Having you and the girls here was delightful.

Veteran's Day Get Away--2013

5 on December 08, 2013

We visited the B&B for a short get away for Veteran's day 2013. Phoebe was an oustanding host. She has everything imaginable that you need for a great get away. I could imagine even staying for a week there. Her breakfast were outstanding and her coffee is yummie! She knows the area well and is very willing to help you with questions you may have about where to dine, what to do, etc. She is very personable and nice to sit and talk with. You will be very please you visited I am sure as we were! The Holeman's, Raleigh, NC

Great Beachy B&B

5 on July 30, 2013

We just spent 2 nights at the Mallard Bay B&B and it was great! Phoebe is delightful, the room is nice & clean, & it's close to great beaches. Breakfast was delicious both days, and Phoebe accommodated our needs for gluten free meals.

Get Away Weekend

4.6 on June 18, 2013

Recently had a get-away weekend, early June, and what a wonderful time was had. Breakfast w/ fresh fruit and eggs to order was great! Enjoyed the kayaking experience and the peacefulness of the home. Will definitely visit again!

Birthday week

5 on May 27, 2013

My husband and I spent my birthday week at Mallard Bay Bed and Breakfast and couldn't have wished for anything more. After warm greetings from the owner, beautiful accomadations, at a beautiful location, Mallard Bay became our home away from home. The owner became our guide to help us choose what was available to do in the area. Thank you, Ms. Phoebe, for making my birthday a memorable and special time. Perfect and highly recommened. I guarantee anyone they will enjoy Mallard Bay and will never forget the special breakfasts and wonderful conversation provided by Ms. Phoebe.
