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.
