McCaskill Cottage

Charming, circa 1905, 'McCaskill Cottage' is located in the heart of Old Town. You will not need a car to go out for drinks and dinner or local shopping. The Carolina Hotel and Spa and the Pine Crest Inn are just one block away, and its only two blocks to the fine Village restaurants. A leisurely five block walk takes you to Pinehurst Country Club and its dining and golf facilities. .

McCaskill Cottage is beautifully decorated with tasteful wall and window coverings and paintings. The floors are the original 'heart pine' with occasional oriental carpets. An exquisite dining room with chandelier opens into an updated, well provisioned eclectic kitchen with island, a fun gathering place for preparing gourmet meals. There are Mexican tile floors in the kitchen which extend into the pantry and laundry room, and into a private wi-fi office overlooking the screened porch and swimming pool. Four bedrooms with antique colonial beds and furnishings provide comfortable sleeping for all.

The property has large well landscaped grounds with three porches: a covered veranda in front, an open porch with pergola on the south side, and a large screened porch in the rear. The gardens have antique brick paths weaving through several arbors and gazebos with numerous rhododendrons, azaleas, dogwoods, nandinas and flowers of all types. The beautiful and private in-ground swimming pool overlooks a grape arbor which serves as the portal to the back yard recreation area where guests can enjoy ping pong or horseshoes and a sand box for kids.

Why john marcum chose Old Town

Our house was originally owned by the Tufts family, the founders of Pinehurst, who sold it to our family in the 30's where it has remained. Having lived all over the world, we keep returning to Pinehurst, which is truly remarkable in having retained its unique charm and status as the Capital of Golf in the US.

Quaint, in-town cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at the cottage - great location, pool was awesome for late afternoon cool-down! Walk to downtown or stay home and enjoy the quiet, beautiful setting. See you next year - Thanks John!

Our stay was great! We loved that we could walk everywhere. The screened in porch and pool were great for hanging out after a day of golf and spa.

Definitely recommend!

Well below par!

  • 5 of 5

Need a place for your foursome then you can't beat this. Have gone to Pinehurst for 20+ years and this is the best accommodation ever.Unbeatable location. Nothing beats hanging at the Pinecrest porch but this was pretty darn good. Gas grill was great for after round steaks ( grocery store 3min away). Awesome water pressure for good cleanup and plenty of places to hang,screened porch,poolside,front porch had it all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! Below par in Pinehurst is hard to do. The Cottage really is a perfect spot to enjoy all the Village’s attractions. Stay with us again.

Nice Cottage

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cottage for a father-son golf weekend. In total, we had four people (one friend, plus a fellow Dad) and the location is great for the Pinehurst resort courses and village. The outdoor space is especially nice. Yet, I would not recommend more than four adults in the cottage. House does not have privileges at Pinehurst which made securing tee times challenging at that course. Overall, a nice place for a golf weekend.

Perfect for a family!

We had a very relaxing and wonderful stay. It was ideal for our family and friends. The pool, sandbox, and outdoor space provided plenty of entertainment. We would definitely rent again.
