Located less than one mile from the gate of the famous Pinehurst No. 2 Golf Course, this 100-year old cottage has been gracefully updated to be a comfortable and relaxing modern-day get-away. Moonshine Cottage is surprisingly roomy inside, sleeping up to 8, and offers both a front porch for relaxing in the shade and a back deck for catching a few rays of sunshine. The back yard is surrounded by mature trees and lush, privacy-ensuring growth. Well behaved pets are always welcome.

Moonshine Cottage is in the heart of Pinehurst Village and within walking distance to 15 different restaurants/pubs. Tucked away on a quiet side street, the cottage is fully furnished and includes all kitchen wares, linens, towels and other necessities. The décor is comfortable and relaxed.

A short drive away is the town of Southern Pines with its charming shops and the historic Sunrise Theater. Both Pinehurst and Southern pines are home to esteemed equestrian communities with rigorous event seasons. Enjoy a day at the Pinehurst Harness track, or time your visit to include the Stoneybrook Steeplechase. Also, both Pinehurst and Southern Pines offer large fitness centers: The First Health Center in Pinehurst, and Gold’s Gym in Southern Pines. In addition, each town supports a labyrinth of fitness greenways that spider out from beautiful public parks.

Moore County is home to over 25 golf courses. The Pinehurst courses have played host to the US Open, the Ryder Cup Championship, the U.S. Amateur, and the PGA Championship. In 2014, Moore County will again host the U.S Open--both of them. Within the same month, Pinehurst No.2 and Pine Needles Resort will enjoy the men’s and women’s U.S. Opens successively. Almost all of the area courses are listed among the top 100 courses in North Carolina. Four of the courses are listed among the top ten golf experiences in North Carolina. Pinehurst No.2 and Pine Needles are regarded as among the best courses the United States has to offer. Numerous classes and golf training camps are available at these area resorts.

                                                          Great location, perfect size, wonderful stay!

                                                          Jason P.

                                                          As mentioned in other reviews, don't be fooled by the picture - the property is quite spacious. More than plenty of room for 4 golfers in our case. The nearby restaurants/sports bar are a 3 min walk which worked out perfectly. The interior was clean and comfortable. Kim was very responsive and helpful. A+ experience overall!

                                                          Very comfortable and peaceful.

                                                          A wonderful cottage that is well appointed with everything you could possibly need. Convenient location to golf and shopping. Enjoyed sitting on the back deck with either a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Looking forward to the next opportunity.

                                                          Always a pleasure

                                                          Not our first stay there....always well maintained and comfortable. The owner is responsive and helpful. Highly recommend. See you in August.

                                                          Weekend Get Away with Friends!

                                                          Laura W.

                                                          This is the second time I've rented this home. It is conveniently located less than a mile away from downtown Pinehurst. The house looks small from this picture, but it is not! It has a large kitchen, living room area, and 3 bedrooms. It is a perfect place to relax, unwind, shop, explore Pinehurst and Southern Pines. Kim is very responsive, and great to work with. She truly wants her guests to feel at home. I highly recommend it!

                                                          Nice home and plenty of room

                                                          Amy H.

                                                          Older home remodeled, close to grocery stores, shopping and golfing. Full kitchen and 2 full baths , 3 nice sized bedrooms . My sister stayed in a condo on the golf course and felt that we had much more room for less than she was paying for 2 bedrooms and a tiny kitchen. The area isn’t in the best location , surrounded by businesses but we were visiting family and needed a place to sleep

                                                          And eat. I wouldn’t say it is within walking distance to downtown.

                                                          Very clean. Great location. Tremendous value.

                                                          Scott B.

                                                          Visited Pinehurst to celebrate our adult daughter’s birthday. The Moonshine Cottage was perfect for our weekend trip! The house is spotless. The bedrooms are roomy and the beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are updated and showers have great water pressure with plenty of hot water. The owner also supplies soap and shampoo. The kitchen feels essentially new, with updated appliances. The kitchen is also very well stocked (there was even a cake plate on which we displayed our daughter’s birthday cake!). The location of this property is one of its best attributes, located just a few blocks from Pinehurst Village. Very convenient. We played golf at Pinehurst Resort, visited the spa at the Carolina hotel, and had 2 great meals in the Village. And as other reviewers have noted, the deer did not disappoint, showing up in the backyard both mornings! We would definitely stay at this property again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
