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 Duck

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.

Awesome Stay at Wee Duck Inn

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a fabulous week at the Wee Duck Inn. The condo was clean, comfortable, and in a great location on the beach. Clean pool and beautiful quiet beach were very easily accessible. The owners supplied plenty of games, books, and videos for any rainy days or nights. We rented bikes allowing us fun trips into town as well as up and down the island. The owners were extremely receptive to questions not only prior to our stay in Duck but even during our stay. Thank you for a wonderful week!

Very accommodating and welcoming. Great ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a clean place close to the beach, close to town and all that Duck has to offer. We were not disappointed. Only recommendation would be more water pressure in the showers. Otherwise extremely pleased and would highly recommend your condo.

Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable.

Owner's Response: So glad you were pleased with our condo and location. In November of this year, all units at Colony by the Sea are being replumbed. We expect water pressure to improve with that upgrade.

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.
