About Susan Raff
David and I moved to Pinehurst in 1983. We liked it so much that we decided to make it our permanent home. We raised our family here and even after being empty nesters we continue to enjoy the charm and friendliness of our unique community! We wouldn't live anywhere else!
Susan Raff purchased this House in 2010
Why Susan Raff chose Old Town
Dave and I were lucky enough to find and purchase Arundel Cottage as our first home. Over the years we renovated, landscaped and restored it’s 'Olde Town' charm. In 1996 we built a new house on the adjacent lot where we lived for 15 yrs. Our first cottage did so well we decided to build another new house on the adjacent lot. We then furnished and equipped Cardinal House as an affordable vacation rental home for travelers with larger groups wanting to experience the sandhills region of Central North Carolina. We now manage and maintained both homes ourselves with our quests comfort and convenience in mind. We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing our unique properties over the years. We have made many new friends. Some of our guests find they don't want to leave and continue to return year after year.
What makes this House unique
Our property is larger than most vacation rentals. There is a deck and two large patios. The lawn is big enough for large parties to enjoy the outdoors! Plenty of outdoor activities including hot tub, garden, frisbee, corn hole, hammock, fire pit, bbq, children's play area.

Everything We'd Hoped For!
We were in Pinehurst for our daughters wedding and had family from all over the country joining us. We rented Cardinal House and Arundel Garden Cottage next door. Susan and her husband were so welcoming and made it so easy for us to arrive and get settled!! The homes were spacious and comfortable and great memories were made... especially at the bon fire one evening!! Being able to walk to the Village was an added bonus. What a wonderful weekend and a great place to call "home" for a few days.
Thank you! So happy you all had such a great weekend! Best wishes to the newlyweds!
Sincerely, Susan and Dave
The home was very spacious and accommodated our needs perfectly.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The sitting area was large enough to allow every one to gather in one space. The 3 sofas were great! The kitchen was equipped with anything and everything we needed. Susan was delightful and a wonderful host.
12 guys golfing, 3rd year at the Cardinal house
Thanks Susan- everything was great as usual, plenty of room for all 12, the house was very clean and the hot tub came in handy after playing 36 each day, the weather was great for grilling and enough seating so we could all argue about the college football games on the big screen. looking forward to working with you next year! thanks.... John
Thanks John, Great to have you all back! Book soon for next year. Only the third weekend in October is available right now.
House was perfect for golfers in the heart of Pinehurst. Homeowner was extremely helpful with suggestions regarding the area. Would definitely return!
Our group of 10 golfers loved the Cardinal House. The backyard is amazing. We grilled, used the hot tub and played corn hole. Inside, everything was clean and well appointed. The game room was also enjoyed by all. The location is perfect and extremely proximate to the Village and #2! Highly recommend the Cardinal House.
Great home and location in Pinehurst Village. Owners were wonderful to work with!!
The Cardinal House is in a great location within Pinehurst Village. Our golf group enjoyed the home and the amenities provided. The owners were a real pleasure to work with and highly responsive to all our needs. They returned every email within an hour. Susan picked up our groceries and delivered everything to our home which made our arrival that much easier. We will be back!!
Thanks for choosing Cardinal House for your Pinehurst accommodations! Helping to make our guest's stay as pleasant as possible is very important to us and something we strive for each and every time! You guys were top notch guests and we would love to have you back! See ya'all next time!
