With nine golf courses, a short course and all of the history associated with Pinehurst No. 2, it’s fair to say that Pinehurst Resort is a golfer’s nirvana. And while there are always going to be a good number of golfers roaming the area, look a little closer and you’ll find that Pinehurst is also a lovely destination for couples who are seeking to get away for a bit. Whether it’s on a bed and breakfast, spa or golf package, Pinehurst can help you reconnect and recharge. Here’s just one look at a potential retreat.
The Ultimate Couples Retreat at Pinehurst
Settle in and take a breath.
As a couple, you really can’t go wrong when booking your stay. The Carolina Hotel is the majestic, stately and flagship hotel of Pinehurst, but in the heart of the Village sits our first hotel, The Holly Inn, with its bi-level suites and cozy Tavern bar, exudes romantic charm. Finally, The Manor was completely renovated in 2019, blends modern amenities with the rustic atmosphere of a hotel that originally opened its doors in 1923.
Casual and carefree spirits.
Enjoy a fun dinner and atmosphere at Pinehurst Brewing Co., then walk mere steps up the hill to The Manor and enjoy a nightcap at the North & South Bar, a whiskey bar featuring classic and original cocktails and more than 70 differing spirits. It’s the perfect place to wile away the evening, whether in the stylish bar or by the cozy fire pits on the patio.
Breakfast with a side of charm.
What better way to start the day – any day in Pinehurst – than with the breakfast buffet at The Carolina Hotel? All of the traditional southern fixin’s are there, but so is the pianist, who adds a little extra level of elegance to the morning.
Choose your adventure.
Relaxation and convenience:
Take a tranquil retreat to the Spa at Pinehurst, which offers an array of treatments. The New England-style Village of Pinehurst is just down the brick pathway from any of our hotels, and within its winding streets are the little shops and restaurants you thought only still existed in old movies. Leave the car parked as just about everything in Pinehurst is within walking distance, rent a pair of bikes or enjoy complimentary shuttle service around the Village.
Explore the fun of the game:
You’ll find there may be no better time at Pinehurst than the Golden Hour. You’ll find a vibrant vibe at the Resort Clubhouse, where the fun of golf is alive at The Cradle short course or the putting course, Thistle Dhu. Find a spot on the veranda and watch golfers play the 18th hole of famed No. 2 and enjoy bites and drinks from the Deuce, one of the best pubs in all of golf. After all, you are at Pinehurst!
Sip and savor.
Dining at Pinehurst offers your choice of whatever you are in the mood for. You may enjoy the casual elegance of the Carolina Dining Room (don’t worry, no jackets required), or the American fare of the Ryder Cup Lounge, though The Tavern at The Holly Inn might be Pinehurst’s best-kept dinner secret.
After dinner, reserve a horse-and-carriage ride through the Village and surrounding areas.
Wake up slow.
Breakfast, the Carolina Coffee Shop and the veranda rocking chairs are calling again. Or maybe, this time, enjoy coffee and the Village at an outside table at the Roast Office, which also houses the Given-Tufts used bookstore. It’s a 2-minute walk from any of our hotels.
Don’t rush off.
Does golf or The Spa beckon again today? No rush to leave Pinehurst, so take your time. Another idyllic small town setting is in nearby Southern Pines, just a 5-minute car ride away. Pro-tip: Ride in style by reserving a BMW with our Guest Drive program.
At Pinehurst, time tends to find a way of slowing down, allowing you to consider the important things in life again – each other.
The beauty of Pinehurst is you may not want to leave. And, since the Bed & Breakfast package always offers a 1-night stay, why not consider putting work off for another day…
