Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Located a Par five’s distance to the fairways of Pinehurst No.2, this 100-year old cottage has been remodeled to 1300 square feet of modern accommodation. The master bedroom alone is 540 sqft (30x18), and the house overall sleeps 5. The Robin's Egg Cottage is a portrait of masterful updating that offers modern-day space, but maintains the cottage feel. Your golfing entourage will enjoy grilling on a deck that overlooks a half-acre of lawn framed by mature trees and lush, privacy-ensuring growth.
The Robin's Egg 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 fireplace adds ambiance and warmth to the living room and dining room. If it is too warm to be inside, relax in the country-charm of the front porch.
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 the beautiful public parks listed below ... all within walking distance from the cottage.

About Kimberly Meade
Since 1996 I have cultivated a career in Human Resources Management in the corporate world. However, my affinity for property led me to a secondary career when, in 2004, I began acquiring rental property. I enjoy working with both my short-term and long-term renters and am delighted that you are considering The Robin's Egg Cottage for your vacation. For fun I love to go for a run through Rassie Wicker Park (located just behind In-Play Cottage), take short trips to the beach or mountains, dine-out, go to the movies or a live play, garden, and play with my two cats, Oreo and Bali.
Kimberly Meade purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Kimberly Meade chose Pinehurst
My family has been vacationing in Pinehurst since the late 90's. Every season brings a new reason to fall in love with the area over and over again. The spring Azaleas, dogwoods, and bradford pears are breath takingly beautiful. Summer brings lots of gatherings, festivals, and live bands in the Village. Fall is simply a second spring and drives me to be outdoors. The winters are mild and, again, full of beautiful Camelia blooms ... I love it. So, when deciding to make Pinehurst home, I decided there was no better place to give into my desire to own and manage property.
What makes this Cottage unique
The feature renters like best at The Robin's Egg Cottage is the grand master bedroom. It is a monster! So big, in fact, that there is a full living room right inside the bedroom. You'll love the spacious master bath, the roomy closet, and the convenience of the laundry room ... not to mention the large backyard and side deck. Stepping outside of the cottage, you'll love that you can walk 2 blocks to Maxie's bar and restaurant. You can even walk to the heart of the VIllage in less than 10 minutes, or drive there in 2 minutes.

Property was okay. Location was good.
I was disappointed in a few things. There was only one screen on the windows so we had a choice of leaving everything closed up or letting bugs in. Also there was no outdoor furniture to enjoy the nice spring air. I know a bed is a personal choice, but both my husband and I never got a good nights sleep in the two weeks we stayed. I tried sleeping on the couch it was so bad. The best part was being able to have our dog with us. Overall a disappointment.
We loved our stay in Pinehurst
The home is the perfect size for two couples on a get away. It is close to downtown but you do need to drive. It is convenient to all the main arteries to get around Pinehurst or Southern Pines. The home is well done and up to date. The owner has put a lot of time into this rental.
Charming little house with everything you need for a night or two or extended stay. Great location although too far to walk (for us) to Pinehurst Village. Recommend this place with no reservations.
I stayed at this property over the Thanksgiving holiday and the cottage was so charming. It was beautiful and the perfect size for my family. We would certainly book again.
great lil cottage
I say lil in sarcasm, it was huge and very well decorated. I was perfect for my family including my furbabies! Loved it!
The description is right on.
Met all my needs. Would prefer to have better access to the backyard. There was too much overgrowth in front and around the deck. Deck would not be safe for small children. There were no railings.
