Sweet and Elegant
Posted Dec 23, 2011
We had a wonderful, albeit short stay. The staff was very attentive. The room was immaculate with many amenities. At 4 PM, tea was served in the main lobby. Along with tea were the most delectable "homemade" type cookies and desserts. The Lobby was dressed for the holidays, adorned in poinsettias, a gingerbread replica of the town of Pinehurst, garland, trees and other lovely decorations.
A short walk brought you to the picture perfect town of Pinehurst with its lovely shops and restaurants. The spa beside the hotel boasted of many services, although we did not avail ourselves of them. Rockers were placed on the porches surrounding the hotel, adding to the lovely ambiance.
We were looking for a quiet retreat where we could celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. Of course, it was December and probably considered "off-season". The Carolina Inn at Pinehurst Resort met our expectations. We look forward to a return visit.
