Moonshine Cottage - Rest & Relax!

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

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.

Weekend Get Away with Friends!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the location and surrounding area fool you, this is a wonderful property. The cottage is much larger than it appears, well appointed, well maintained, and very comfortable. It was great to sit on the back deck with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and watch the deer in the back yard. Just down the street is Linda's Pinehurst Café, a great place for breakfast or lunch. This little diner is a throw back to good ole Southern cooking. You are less than 5 minutes to the Village of Pinehurst and a very easy walk if you are so inclined. The owner was a delight and responded quickly to any questions. Don't overlook this hidden gem and give it a try. Like us you will definitely be back.
