About Amy

My husband and I fell in love with Pinehurst because of it's outstanding golf but also for it's beauty, history and small town charm. We concluded that this would be a great place to retire so we bought a small cottage that was built in 1919 and renovated it. Everything is brand new. Except for some antique wood pieces. We'd like to share it's charm with you until it's time for us to retire.

Amy purchased this cottage in 2012

Extremely satisfied!

  • 5 of 5

We feel very fortunate to have stayed at the Merrimac in late July! The close proximity to the village shops and restaurants was even better than expected. Very close driving proximity to all golf courses and to the resort locations where our friends stayed was also a very welcome convenience. All of the cottage's amenities and appliances were updated/upscale and user friendly. The layout allows for anyone to have their own space when desired, and is also well set up for entertaining and for together-time. Our stay was very relaxing and quiet, just as we wanted it. There were no noisy people going up and down hotel hallways at odd hours, no noisy neighbors waking early or coming back to their rooms late, and we were afforded the very peaceful and comfortable sleeping conditions we hoped for and needed to handle 9 straight days of summer golf (our son competed). The Merrimac far exceeded our expectations, and we look forward to returning!

Wonderful Spot for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Merrimac after a family event in Charlotte. The Merrimac was perfect for the R & R we needed. The home was extremely well maintained and spotlessly clean. The furnishings and decor were beautiful-very warm and inviting. The home is situated in a quiet neighborhood which is close enough for an easy walk into Pinehurst. Hurricane Matthew hit on the 2nd day we were there. We were happy to hunker down and read, and the house was perfect for that. We had a couple of questions during our stay and Amy responded extremely fast via email. The VRBO description was very accurate.

We had 3 great meals in the area: Ashten's in Southern Pines was our favorite. We also enjoyed Elliot's on Linden and the Carolina Inn. Reservations are recommended at Ashten's and Elliot's.

I highly recommend the Merrimac!

Impeccable, charming and comfortable classic Old Pinehurst Village Home.

  • 5 of 5

We were here for my Goddaughter's Wedding. It was the perfect place to relax between festivities. It was the best of places to sit and reflect upon the poignant beauty of life.

We look forward to returning many times in the future.
