About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12) Rents Sat-Sat ONLY, 5/1 -10/1

A warm, comfortable, modern retreat in the 'Old Nags Head' style. Great for families, couple getaways, golf outings, and ladies' getaway. Relax in the front porch hammock or enjoy a long chat on the screen porch overlooking the private, secure pool. This quaint, Outer Banks cottage is in easy walking distance of the waterfront village of Duck, with great restaurants, coffee cafes and unique shopping and galleries. Short, easy walk to both the Atlantic Ocean and Currituck Sound. Drive to lighthouses, museums and historic attractions such as the 'First in Flight', Wright Memorial in nearby Kitty Hawk.

Swim, surf and fish in the ocean, or just enjoy the endless miles of beautiful sandy beach for walking, jogging or shell hunting. Kayak, wind surf or sail the adjacent bay; or for motor sport lovers, there are jet skis, parasails and water skiing. Catch your dinner of fresh Virginia blue crabs or a variety of fish from the neighborhood private pier and prepare a sumptuous dinner in the fully furnished open kitchen. Finish your evening relaxing in the private hot tub.

Winter is also a great time to visit the Outer Banks. The crowds are gone, most restaurants are open and our gas log fireplace in the living area is just a click away.

We rent Saturday to Saturday from May 1 to October 1 in full weeks; unless we are 10 days out and a week is open, when we will consider 3 to 6 night rentals. Off season we require a three night minimum. All rentals must include at least one 25 year old in their party. Our pool is generally open May 1 to October 1; and although it is not heated, its location on the south side of the home heats up quickly in the Spring and Fall.

About Hal Craddock

Architect/Developer (Hal) and Artist/Teacher (Doris) living in Short Pump, a suburb of Richmond, Virginia, raised five children, all five of whom live in the NYC/Brooklyn area. We also developed a hotel/restaurant/brewery property in Lynchburg, Virginia called Bluffwalk Center.

Hal is now teaching part time at the University of Maryland School of Architecture

Hal Craddock purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Hal Craddock chose Duck

We fell in love with Duck, NC in the 1990s and wanted a place where our family and friends could gather. A rental cottage made sense for us financially. Designing and furnishing the cottage was one of our greatest experiences as a couple. The actual town of Duck was formed about 15 years ago around opposition to a large, national grocery store chain building a big box in the core of the community. The property was instead turned into a playground, Town Hall services, a music lawn and stage, crabbing/fishing/birding piers and boat launches.

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxed, old Nagshead style living within short walk of beach, sound and Duck Village's intersting variety of shops and great restaurants. Only one to two hours to major airports in Norfolk and Newport News
