We are both educators. I am an artist and my wife, Robin, works with Autistic students. We love Duck for the wonderful people, and the unforgettable beauty of the sound, sea, and maritime woodlands. We have spent many summers at this cottage and are happy to give you tips on where and what to enjoy in the area. Ask us about our favorite walking paths, the hidden ship wreck, and favorite coffee houses!

Todd Drake purchased this cabin in 1987

After many summers of enjoying the beach with our children and family, I and my wife have lovingly restored and updated our family's cottage and hope to share and enjoy it for years to come.

More modest than an ocean front rental, but more than your average beach box, this cottage is perfect for a family that is looking for a home away from home experience. Newly remodeled, the Nantucket style exterior just says 'relax.' Throughout the downstairs warm cypress paneling welcomes you and your family inside while the new screened in porch is perfect for resting between trips to the beach, sound, shopping, or bike path. Updated with new AC, the cottage is also designed to capture the summer breezes from all directions and with two sun decks, swing, picnic tables, a Live Oak shaded hammock, and more. There are plenty of places to enjoy family, or a good book, in the out of doors.

Nice family home

  • 4 of 5
We had 2 adults and 3 teens here for a week. The teens had the entire upstairs and it worked out very nicely. The house is in a more quiet area so the beach is less crowded than other places. It has a very nice screened in porch that is great for drinking coffee in the morning. The owner is very kind as helpful. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a mean plus items we didn't even think about. If we go back, we will be staying here again.

Relaxing family home near the beach

  • 4 of 5
My family and I loved the Odd Duck Inn. The photos accurately depicted the appearance of the property. From the original artwork, delightful porch swing, to the creatively decorated outdoor shower, this remodeled World War II era home was the perfect spot for us to relax and recharge our batteries. Overall, the house was clean and well-maintained, although the couch cushions were a little uncomfortable for lounging. The owner had left special notes to explain doors, light switches, use of open flames only on the deck, etc. He was easily accessible, answered all of our questions, and gave us suggestions, like buying seafood in Columbia on the way in, saving us money. The kitchen was well-stocked, so we were able to cook several meals. We found the beach equipment to be exactly what we needed, with chairs, umbrellas, carriers, boogie-boards, crab pots if you like to crab, and even a bocce ball set. Although not handicapped accessible, this house is on a quiet lane just a short walk from the beach, and close to some great amenities in Duck, and not far from the Currituck Lighthouse in Corolla. Visit the wildlife museum if you venture that way. In Duck, check out Duck's Cottage Books and Coffee, as well as Duck Deli (fabulous BBQ and chicken salad!), the Roadside Bar and Grill, and the ice cream shop at the Waterfront Shops. Fishbones Sunset Raw Bar and Grill is a great place for having drinks while taking in amazing sunset views, and they also offer water sports. I would definitely go back, and for the price, the Odd Duck Inn would be hard to beat!

Great House, Great Beach, Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful stay at this house that it was hard to leave at the end of our week. This charming house has recently been nicely remodeled, is neat and clean, and has plenty of space. We absolutely loved the screened in porch when we wanted to escape the sun, and loved the upper deck for the views and the nice breeze. It was only a 3-5 minute walk to the beach on one side and to the sound on the other side. We took our bikes and rode into town on the nice bike paths easily accessible from the house down to the various shops and restaurants. It was also great being able to take our dogs with us, since they are part of our family too! The owners were always readily available for any questions, and have obviously succeeded in making this a cozy, welcoming place that you'll want to come back to again and again.

Best experience ever!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is packed with history, love and full of positive aura. It's close to the beach, a hop, skip and a jump- if you will. The owner was so helpful and available all the time. I plan on spending next vacation here next year- for certain!

Located in SoundSea Village, our cottage is in a family friendly community with old school sand roads. We are on a quiet cul de sac with no through traffic just 2 miles from the village of Duck. Bike or jog there on the well loved walking/biking trail that stretches for miles north and south. We have private access to an uncrowded, wide, and clean beach. Jet ski, skim board, and kayak rentals for enjoying the near-by Currituck Sound are just a block away. Sunsets over the Sound and milky way viewing from our top deck are a must experience. Great location for a family reunion or fall wedding on the beach with other rent by owner cottages within walking distance. An Environmental Center, lighthouse tour, Wild Horse tour, and historic WhaleHead Mansion are just up the beach in Corolla.
