About Amy Griggs

Charley, an engineer/builder and Amy, a writer and former teacher, work and live in nearby Wake County. Creativity and craftsmanship are two things we like about remodeling; we always have a work in progress, and we love coming to Pinehurst.

Amy Griggs purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Amy Griggs chose Pinehurst

Cole House is so named because it is the family name of the original owner/residents and only family before us to occupy this historic cottage. Four seasons a year, the Sandhills, and particularly Pinehurst, offer a garden-like setting, easy-living climate and an otherwise mysterious and inexplicable magnetism.

What makes this cottage unique

Charley recognized the good bones of this sturdy house and knew it'd be a great fixer-upper. It might be impossible to find another place in this price range that says 'no worries' like Cole House does. Our goal was to have guests enter and feel like Cole House had been in their family forever -- timeless decor, simple comforts, and some of that mystery appeal. The location is convenient and yet feels "off the beaten path." Guests like having 4 bedrooms.

Beautiful home close to all of the golf action Pinehurst has to offer

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, with all the amenities necessary for two foursomes looking to stay right in the heart of Pinehurst. Less than a 10 minute drive to everything: the main clubhouse and other Pinehurst courses, Pinehurst/Southern Pines restaurants, groceries, etc. The extra full bath, ice machine, and gameroom in the basement were great bonuses for our group.

If we could recommend anything, it would be an additional small window AC unit in the 4th bedroom downstairs, or a small one in the downstairs gameroom. But we did visit on the hottest week of the year. The upstairs was super comfortable.

Look forward to visiting again soon, would recommend this home as a welcome spot for 6-8 golfers anytime.

Great, unique cottage

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed here for a golf trip, and there was room for more! The place was in great shape and was perfect for our weekend getaway. Downtown is only a 15 minute walk, and it's about a 7 minute walk to a local tap house. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location for a Pinehurst golf trip

  • 5 of 5

Came down from OH with a group of 8 guys and this place was perfect. Close to multiple grocery stores, within walking distance of some good restaurants, and less than 5 min from the Pinehurst resort. House has everything you need. Strongly recommend!
