The rooms in The Holly recently underwent a $2 million renovation. The 82-room inn first opened on New Year’s Eve in 1895 and was Pinehurst’s first hotel. Located in center of the Village, the Holly’s convenient location and timeless elegance make it a favorite of many Pinehurst guests.
The Holly features five unique meeting spaces that hearken back to Pinehurst’s roots as a genteel retreat. Most rooms include an antique fireplace yet are equipped with all modern amenities. Part Queen Ann Revival, part Arts and Crafts, the Holly was designed to reflect its natural surroundings. Everything, from floral motif carvings, stenciled ceilings, art glass fixtures and decorative tile – was selected to evoke the natural world and create an air of relaxed elegance.
Meeting spaces include the 1,089 square foot Evergreen Music Room, its walnut covered walls inscribed with quotes by Thoreau. The charming Magnolia and Gardenia rooms are perfect for small meetings, and the Holly Pool is ideal for an outdoor reception.
