Pinehurst Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.


For a complete list and current calendar of events, visit North Carolina’s Pinehurst/Southern Pines/Aberdeen & Visitors Bureau, and the Moore County Chamber of Commerce at the North Carolina Department of Commerce, Tourism Division.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Moonshine Cottage is ideal - just outside of Pinehurst Village, around the corner from the Arboretum and Rassi Wicker Park, close to everything but also very serene and private. The home is clean with everything needed for a wonderful stay. Kim was wonderful to interact with and I thank her for everything.

I'll be back!

Great accommodations and location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean, tasteful, comfortable and well equipped. There is one step down into hallway to bedrooms. This wasn't a problem for us, but it would be if there was a handicap person in your group. The house is in a slightly commercial area but was still quiet and safe. The view of deer feeding in the back yard was a bonus during breakfast. Located close to Pinehurst club house and village. We would stay there again.

Quite, quaint and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Moonshine Cottage. The property is well maintained and provided our family of five everything we needed for a comfortable get away. Be persistent with Google maps it was a little funky with the address and I would upgrade the coffee maker. Every morning we watched a herd of deer while enjoying our breakfast.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

My 2 brothers and I stayed here for a golf weekend. Very comfortable. Nice big screen TV. Had everything we needed. Nothing we did not. Kim, thanks for putting in the new gas grill, but we decided to go out to dinner instead!

Our stay was just pleasently perfect.

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for a wedding and visiting my sister, and it was just perfect, right down to every detail. So nice and clean, cozy and a great location. The porch was relaxing and even had a couple deer pay us a visit drinking our morning coffee. The owner Kim was friendly and helpful to make sure we were happy with our stay. When I come back to Pinehurst, I will definitely stay here again.
