When planning our North Carolina vacation, only had 1 night to stay at Pinehurst....decided to opt for the historic Holly Inn at Pinehurst - charming Inn......easy process to check in - we had a tee time in an hour - they told us they would shuttle us from this point on anywhere we wanted to go - parked our car and never moved it until we left. Room was big, comfortable, very nice bathroom with large shelf to hold all essentials. Nice thing about staying at the Holly Inn was the location - directly across from the Pinehurst Village of shops/bars/restaurants. Shops close at 5 pm, so do your exploring early. Golfed course #5 at Pinehurst - all staff friendly - efficient at getting your golf bags from the shuttle onto your cart, which is in a lower level of the clubhouse. This course wasn't that scenic - older condo's so I assume this is one of the older courses......course condition good. Was really hot day, but enjoyed golfing.....took shuttle to the Carolina Hotel and had drinks/dinner in the Ryder Cup Lounge - very good meal - salmon was outstanding......had delicious champagne cocktail on the large wraparound porch prior to dinner. Had B&B package, so breakfast was included - at either the Holly Inn or the Carolina Room - we opted to shuttle to the Carolina Room - beautiful room - have to say the breakfast was a little disappointing as items were not very hot. Did like the egg personally prepared for me (omelettes/eggs to order station.) Would love to come back to Pinehurst and would for sure stay at The Holly Inn!

Every detail has been attended to inside and on the spacious grounds. Decorating the walls and floors are a series of natural botanical prints and images reminiscent of times gone by. You'll see the fine touches in every nook from the jewel-toned Tiffany lamps to the reading selection in the library to the comfort of a rocking chair in your guest room. It's no wonder the Holly is a Four-Diamond hotel. The 1895 Grille is the Four-Diamond restaurant inside the Holly.
