This was our first visit to the OBX, we came for 4 nights. Nancy (innkeeper) provides a delightful setting - well appointed room and inn, close to village and beach. Nancy's hospitality and breakfasts were top notch. We WILL definitely come back again.

I cannot say enough good things about this B&B. I stayed for 3 nights and everything was just perfect. Terrific breakfast, fantastic location, everything was spotless, and the owner was awesome. I have stayed at many B&Bs and I think it's sometimes hard to find the right mix of privacy and "togetherness" but this place has the formula down perfect....

We didn't have the opportunity to rent for a week in Duck so we chose Advice 5 Cents for 2 nights. The location can't be beaten: a short walk from the beach or to NC 12 and the restaurants and shops. Nancy our host was friendly and most helpful. Breakfast was delicious with healthy choices (Nancy is a runner!). Our...

From the moment we arrived, our stay could be summed up in one word - perfect. The home was extremely clean and orderly, offering every imaginable accommodation a guest could want. The conscious desire to meet their guests every need were found painstakingly throughout, leaving us feeling at peace knowing we weren't just renting a 'room' - we were being...

Very gracious greeting followed by a complete tour of the inn. Nancy made sure I was satisfied with my room and all of the amenities. I needed a quiet retreat to mentally prepare for a vital meeting and Advice 5 cents provided it. Location is convenient to anything you might need on the northern OBX and Nancy's knowledge of the...

Advice 5 Cents was the perfect spot for a quick weekend getaway. We were looking for a low-key, relaxing place and this exceeded expectation! Service was great, house was clean and we absolutely loved the conversations we had each morning!

I think this is the only Bed and Breakfast in Duck, which is helpful because renting a beach house is hard to afford for a couple for the weekend! Halfway between ocean and town. Not as close to the beach as I thought from advertising and you can barely glimpse the ocean from deck. The town could use sidewalks. But...

It is hard to find single rooms for a few nights in Duck (especially in the center of town), but this gem is the perfect compromise! A great location, beautiful home, and wonderful hosts. Good breakfast variety! Would definitely recommend.

We've stayed twice at Advice 5 Cents and loved both visits. We had found it randomly online but were thrilled with our choice and it felt like we were staying with old friends. The house is lovely, beautifully furnished and each room is different, but all lovely. A beautiful beachhouse simply furnished and not frilly as a lot of B...
