The Holly Inn

Built in 1895, The Holly was Pinehurst’s first hotel and is located in the heart of The Village. The Four Diamond Holly features 82 guest rooms and suites each as unique as the hotel itself.

The Holly Inn opened on New Year’s Eve in 1895. Twenty guests paid $3 for a night’s stay to welcome the first New Year in Pinehurst History.

Every detail has been attended to. 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, and to the comfort of a rocking chair in your guest room.
