B&B was very clean and the experience was quiet and relaxed. But in reality it was only an expensive motel room. Breakfast was less than a continental type found at basic hotels. Owner was curt and formal. B&B's that I stayed at had more personality. It was a good five minutes from the beach and closer to the town of Duck. I made comment to the owner relating to the "sprawl" of the outer banks and she found offense to this comment. Yet she was directly responsible to the cause. Anyway she took my money and I was off. Sad to see the small town growing out of bounds.
