Historic Village of Pinehurst & Southern Pines Area

The Village of Pinehurst area of North Carolina features so much to see and do, and not just on the golf course.

Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead at the turn of the century, the Village of Pinehurst offers a quaint return to the past with the quiet serenity of a NewEngland-style village. While golf put the Village of Pinehurst and the surrounding Sandhills area on the map, the mild weather, amazing assortment of recreational and cultural activities, dining options and special events make if the perfect year-round resort destination. A state-of-the-art regional hospital with an affiliated fitness center, a commercial airport and community college offer visitors and residents the lifestyle and ambiance that discerning individuals demand.

Talamore is located mere footsteps from the Historic Village of Pinehurst and the quaint town center of Southern Pines.
