About Gwen Vincent

Since I was a child, I visited the OBX every summer with my family, and when I married, I introduced my husband to it. He fell in love with the area as much as I always had. Together we purchased Wee Duck Inn as an investment property during the time when our children were off to college. It turned out to be our little get away from lifes everyday routine and struggles. Our children, now married, and our grandchildren, love Wee Duck Inn as much as we do, and go as often as they can. We are so happy we made this choice years ago.

Gwen Vincent purchased this condo in 1999

Why Gwen Vincent chose Outer Banks

We love Colony by the Sea, and chose this property because of the location to the ocean and the very quaint town of Duck. In the past 15 years, Duck has grown in such a positive way. We enjoy being in Duck at our condo as much as we possibly can, and take pride in maintaining our condo for our family use as well as the use of many guests. We are happy to share our condo with so many who have come back year after year, making memories with their families and even honeymooners. It's just the right size for couples or small families. We have families that have raised their little ones to think of Wee Duck Inn as their summer home away from home, and reading the memories shared each year as the children grow is very heart warming. It's wonderful knowing that we can offer Wee Duck Inn to others to enjoy as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, peaceful and comfortable, yet convenient to everything.

Wee Duck Inn

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us it was an awesome week!!! It was more than we could have asked for! We actually hated to leave. The condo was absolutely adorable and the location was perfect! Being right on the beach and having the pool on the premises worked out for all of us. We did the Wild Horse and Lighthouse tours! The town was filled with lots of shopping and restaurants! Definitely plan to return and highly recommend others to stay here!

Thank you again!

  • 4 of 5

Great condo,great location to the beach,restaurants,etc. We had everything we needed. My only complaint (if you want to call it that) is the mattress isn't very comfy.

We would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and we are happy that you would choose to return to Wee Duck Inn. The mattress was purchased two years ago, and until now, no complaints. We purchased a pillow top in hopes it would meet all comfort needs. So glad you had a good week.

Homey Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Wee Duck Inn was the perfect 'home-away-from-home' for a long weekend getaway! You can tell from the moment you walk in, how well the owners take care of the condo. Everything was clean and felt fresh, and the décor was beachy (but not over the top). There was no lingering sand on the ground from past guests, like you often feel and find in many rental homes at the beach.

We instantly felt at home when we walked in the door. To top it off, the Ocean view from the rocking chairs on the large balcony were beautiful!!

Everything that a beach condo should be!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was clean, decorated with a great beach theme and contained all the little things that make a week's stay perfect! Our weather was warm with only one day posted as "no swimming." The town of Duck provided great restaurants and the boardwalk was the just an added delight for a healthy, comfortable walk. We would recommend this location for a pleasant vacation.

Great spot to get away!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was furnished with everything we needed for a great week. We enjoyed the location, close to Duck and the quick walk over the dune to the beach. Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. The owners really take pride in making it comfortable and easy. We even got to turtle volunteers clean out a Leatherback nest!

The ocean sunrises and soundside sunsets seen from Duck are breathtaking. At the complex you can enjoy all the amenities it offers or just relax on the deck and enjoy the ocean view, sit at the gazebos or go for a walk on the beach. Take your family for a walk or ride your bike along the bike path through the little ocean town of Duck. Among all the little shops you will find restaurants offering wide varieties of tastey dishes, a seafood market, a newly built park with a play area for the little ones and an awesome boardwalk that takes you out over the sound and meanders along the soundside shore. Duck also holds many town events to include parades during special occasions, festivals, exercise classes on the lawn, etc. For anyone seeking a place of worship, there is a beautiful United Methodist Church overlooking the Currituck Sound. Duck also provides bike rentals and water sports. Kite flying is also a big hit. For only a short drive, Corolla to the north and Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, and Manteo to the south, you will find golf courses, fishing, boating, recreational facilities, historical sites, lighthouses, theaters, putt putt golf courses, water sports, and an array of shops and restaurants.
