Overview

Duck Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beat the traffic!!! Beautiful soundfront home with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths.

MOONTREE COTTAGE has one of the most beautiful views on the Outer Banks. Beat the traffic with this unique offering - arrive on Friday evening (or as early as you like on Saturday morning), and stay until the following Sunday ten days later.

This charming cottage is beautifully decorated and features a designer kitchen, Pine Cone Hill linens and spa bath products. Relax on the screened porch, or paddle in the sound from your private beach. Go crabbing or kayaking from the community dock next to the house.

The ocean is a short walk away (or you may drive and park at the neighborhood parking lot if you have a lot of gear to carry).

Moontree Cottage is a gem - and is the ONLY Outer Banks property offering this extended week vacation schedule.

About Polly Wessel

Polly and Dave are currently living in Rome, Italy. Dave is a former Mayor of Duck, and Polly was on the original Council during Duck's incorporation as a town in 2002.

Polly Wessel purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Polly Wessel chose Duck

We love Duck for so many reasons - we especially love the walking-jogging-biking trail and the town park. When we looked for a home on the Outer Banks, we knew we would be awake for the sunsets, so a sound view was our top priority.

What makes this cottage unique

Nestled in the trees in a lovely quiet neighborhood, we feel that Moontree Cottage offers the feel of both beach and woods.

Best Family Vacation Location This Side of the Moon!

  • 5 of 5

I have so many good things to say about Moontree Cottage, I don't know where to begin…

*Location: Secluded, quiet, retreat-like but within walking distance of the Sound, the Ocean and the center of Duck, including many restaurants and shops!

*View: Breathtaking (and I really mean breath-taking) view of sunsets over the Outer Banks Sound. The views in the morning and throughout the day are also very BEAUTIFUL.

*Layout of the house: Separate, private spaces and a beautiful, vaulted grand living room dining room area that overlooks the Sound. This allows privacy for different groups of guests in the same house. The lower level bedroom with a view of the sound is especially wonderful! All the bedrooms were wonderful, the beds very comfortable.

*Outdoor shower & Hot tub & gas grill: What a treat the beautiful outdoor shower is! (I am trying to figure out how to build one behind my house.) The hot tub was so relaxing and invigorating at the same time - with a view of the Sound too boot! The grill helped us to cook the best tuna I have ever had. Tuna has never tasted so good!

*Pier/Dock: The Duck town pier abuts Moontree Cottage. in a minute you can be out on the sound - day or night. What a treat! A great place to launch a kayak, paddle board, etc.!

*Very well equipped, functional and beautiful kitchen!

*Airconditioning system - kept the house beautifully cool!

***Overall: A most memorable experience. We stayed in the Fall, but I would imagine that the secluded nature of Moontree Cottage would be especially wonderful in the summer when Duck is brimming with folks. Moontree Cottage exceeded our expectations. Go for it!

Moontree Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to the OBX region and it was really an enjoyable experience staying at MoonTree. The sunsets from the decks are beautiful. The Cottage is well equipped and maintained, and the kitchen has everything you'll need for breakfast through lunch and dinner. The beach is across Duck road but there's a parking area that you have access to and the walk is very short. Everyone in the Tuckahoe community could not have been nicer. If you walk into Duck it's less than a mile and my wife and I made that our walk of the day. A lot to see in the town of Duck so the location of the cottage was great for that. All in all, we were really pleased.

Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

My family and another family enjoyed our Easter break at Moontree Cottage. The house was spacious and comfortable and well prepared for our arrival. Great location to many shops, activities and the town of Duck. Hot tub was not working at first but was repaired by mid week. Great response by the repair company. The had even left a not on the door prior to our arrival informing us of the repair plans. The pier and water access were great for kayaking. We we able to paddle up to the town of Duck from the house, use the public pier in town to tie up and tour and paddle back home. All very easy and convenient.

Owners provided excellent information about the house prior to arrival and also offered great information about shops and activities in the area.

Duck is such a quiet and peaceful town and still very close to all that Kitty Hawk and Nags Head have to offer is just a short drive away.

Lovely cottage with spectacular sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a very relaxing stay at Moontree Cottage over an extended Labor Day weekend. The house was beautifully furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. The location right on the Sound with access to the dock was perfect for enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine or cup of coffee in the morning. We also enjoyed walking into Duck, as opposed to getting into traffic in the car. Polly, the owner, was very responsive to e-mail and willing to answer questions by phone, if necessary. Per our usual we used NorBanks to rent a sailboat and would recommend them for all boat rentals. We were sad to leave- we definitely recommend the Moontree Cottage. Despite having rented in the Outer Banks for 34 years, this was our first stay on the Sound and we really enjoyed the experience!

Perfectly located beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Moontree Cottage! It was the perfect size for our family of 2 adults and 2 young kids. It's so charming, nicely furnished, and perfectly located. We had access to the sound, and the beach was a short 5 mins. drive away. We enjoyed the convenience of paddle boarding and kayaking from the dock. We would go to the beach daily and use the pool on the way home.

The sunset viewed from the screened-in porch (and from the lower level master) are spectacular. We walked to the dock in the early mornings to enjoy the peace and tranquility as well as the gorgeous water views.

Polly's recommendation for restaurants and places to visit worked out very well. We ate at all of the restaurants - the kids and hubby liked Coastal Cantina best since we could just show up in shorts and swimsuit right from the beach. The food at Blue Point was fantastic! The crab cakes and grilled shrimps were very tasty! The kids had a blast eating at Ducks Donuts (made to order!), and at Sunset IceCream on the Broad walk. Scarborough Faire had nice retail stores, good food, shady courtyard, and areas for kids to play We missed the summer performance at the Amphitheater, but we did get to walk around the very pretty gardens and playground in town.

Polly & Dave - thanks for sharing your slice of heaven on the beach with us. We hope to return again soon!

Charming cottage on Currituck Sound! The décor and all the little touches were really lovely. The owner was very accommodating and the neighbors were friendly. This was the perfect spot for our family to come together to celebrate a week of wedding fun and festivities.
