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 Pinehurst

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!

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!

Perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect location. We are 4 golfers and could walk to old town restaurants & bars. The front of the house could use some paint and minor repairs. Also, the TV's need to be update. We were trying to watch sports on a tube type tv in the living room. Its really outdated. The house has all of the amenities that we needed. I received my deposit back within 2 weeks. The pool wasn't used because of the cool temperature.

If the TV were updated and they slapped some paint on the house, we would definitely stay there again.

Quaint Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A quaint, cozy cottage with 4 bedrooms, perfect for a weekend get-away. 3 outdoor porches, (front one screened) and a swimming pool with a larger game area behind the pool for ping-pong or horseshoes. There is a piano and guitar for the musically-inclined.

The cottage could use some freshening as there was a grandmotherly old house smell about and most of the furniture and carpets were fairly dated. Overall, I would recommend to a friend.
