Duck, North Carolina is a small, peaceful resort village located on the north end of the Outer Banks. It is well known for having a lovely residential area and some of the best beaches on the Atlantic Coast. It’s a very walkable community with a mile-long stretch through the center of town lined with shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Accommodations are mostly vacation home rentals and beach cottage rentals. There is one bed & breakfast inn located in Duck, but no hotels located right inside the city limits. A luxurious 12-acre resort is located in Duck that offers miles of secluded beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound. Guests at this retreat can enjoy a full-service spa and fitness center, a 60-seat gourmet restaurant featuring French-inspired American cuisine, fine wines and spectacular views, or a restaurant housed in a restored 1899 coast guard station featuring contemporary American cuisine.

Since most accommodations on the Outer Banks are rental homes, the following list of descriptions may help you with your search for the right place to fit your needs.

Oceanfront – there are no homes or building between you and the ocean. Actual distance to the edge of the ocean will vary from property to property.

Oceanside – No main roads between you and the ocean, but you may need to cross a small road to reach the beach. Distances and views will vary with each property.

Semi-Oceanfront – These homes are located one lot back from the ocean and may or may not require crossing a road to reach the beach. Walking distance to the ocean varies.

Fronts the Beach Road – Properties that front North Carolina Highway 12 (the Beach Road) or Old Oregon Inlet Road. There could be multiple houses between you and ocean access. Distances to the beach will vary.

Soundside/Westside – Located west of North Carolina Highway 12 or U.S. 158 on the soundside of the Outer Banks. The majority of these properties require a short walk or drive to public beach access.

Semi-Soundfront – These are homes located one lot back from the sound and may or may not require crossing a main road to reach the beach.

Soundfront – Homes or cottages that front the sound with no buildable lots or homes between them and the sound. Access to the sound is direct, although the distance and the views will vary from property to property.

Lodging availability on the Outer Banks ranges, depending on the area. In the north, accommodations are mostly rental houses and condos, but there are also a few inns. Moving south to the Nags Head area, there are still vacation homes, plus a range of hotels, both of the nationwide chains and independently owned. Hotels on the Outer Banks tend to be cozy, airy, casual and comfortable – definitely beach type lodging. Few of the hotels are high rises. Farther south in and around Hatteras Island, most communities have lots of rental houses and a few small hotels. There are also state and private campgrounds. The same is true for Ocracoke, although there are relatively fewer beach houses due to the National Seashore.
