The Pottery Capitol of the United States.

Sisters and Innkeepers Barbara and Suzanne Murphy look forward to welcoming you in person. With a vision of sharing the farmhouse feel with an added touch of elegance and lots of warmth, they remodeled this historic 1914 farmhouse into a Bed and Breakfast serving the Seagrove, North Carolina area since 2005.

Each of the four bedrooms and their bathrooms have been decorated to make you feel comfy and special. In the morning enjoy a full gourmet breakfast. Some mornings enjoy the sweet potato pancakes or fresh blueberry stuffed French Toast or pumpkin waffles.  Come be surprised.  Coffee is fresh ground with different coffee blends.  Before venturing out to explore the local pottery shops, sit for awhile in their wonderful gardens or on the front porch and listen to the many birds.

The quaint town of Seagrove is the pottery capitol of the United States.  Walk right next door to one of  Seagrove’s many premier potters; you’ll be spoiled with around 100 potters in the area. Enjoy a pleasant drive through the countryside on beautiful winding roads stopping all along the way to visit another unique shop. The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro is also just a short drive away.

Step back in time…come to Seagrove, and be pampered while enjoying your stay at The Duck Smith House Bed & Breakfast.


Majestic and graceful beauty!
