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.

Wee Duck Inn - Cozy Condo on Ocean
average rating of 4.885714 based on 35 reviews

The Wee Duck Inn was perfect and what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well maintained and has everything you need for a home away from home! The thoughtful care package was so appreciated! Sitting on the balcony is so relaxing with a beautiful view of the ocean! My husband and I enjoyed a quiet, relaxing week! We fell in love with the quaint town of Duck and can't wait to return! Between the beach, pool, movies, books, and games there is plenty to do. We were able to walk just about wherever we wanted to go. We enjoyed a boat ride across Currituck Sound to Sanctuary Vineyards and would highly recommend it. The owners take great pride and care of their condo and it shows in every detail!

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, decorated very nice, kitchen was well stocked. Our only draw back was the fact that we had 4 flights of stairs -- not very comfortable when you are in your seventies and have a two year old.

Wee Duck Rental 8/19/17- 8/26/17

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in the OBX and loved it. We also absolutely loved the Wee Duck condo!! It was clean, well maintained and had everything that you would need for a vacation (even a wide selection of movies and games!) We also can't forget the beautiful view of the ocean. The beach was only a few steps away and our kids also loved the ocean front pool. We would highly recommend this rental to others. Thank you Gwen and Roger Vincent !

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Wee Duck Inn was the perfect vacation home for our family! The condo is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and cozy, and exceptionally clean. We had a fantastic week at Duck, enjoying the beach, pool, restaurants, and nearby attractions, and it was so wonderful to return to such a lovely home after each of our adventures. The condo had everything we needed and more. We didn't even mind the rainy days we had because we had such a great home to spend them in. The owners were also very easy to work with and obviously take pride in maintaining such a beautiful condo.

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.
