About Susan Raff
David and I moved to Pinehurst in 1983. We liked it so much that we decided to make it our permanent home. We raised our family here and even after being empty nesters we continue to enjoy the charm and friendliness of our unique community! We wouldn't live anywhere else!
Susan Raff purchased this House in 2010
Why Susan Raff chose Old Town
Dave and I were lucky enough to find and purchase Arundel Cottage as our first home. Over the years we renovated, landscaped and restored it’s 'Olde Town' charm. In 1996 we built a new house on the adjacent lot where we lived for 15 yrs. Our first cottage did so well we decided to build another new house on the adjacent lot. We then furnished and equipped Cardinal House as an affordable vacation rental home for travelers with larger groups wanting to experience the sandhills region of Central North Carolina. We now manage and maintained both homes ourselves with our quests comfort and convenience in mind. We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing our unique properties over the years. We have made many new friends. Some of our guests find they don't want to leave and continue to return year after year.

My family of eight and three generations, recently stayed at the Cardinal House for a three day celebratory weekend. There were plenty of beds of different configurations, all, thankfully, made up when we arrived. We also found an abundance of towels. The check-in instructions were clear and there were plenty of notes to help us with our stay. The walk into the downtown Pine Hurst was a five - ten minute stroll through a residential neighborhood all the way. The kitchen had all the necessities and more. "The Fam" was happy to have plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed playing darts in the game-room that is in the garage but has a carpeted floor and a stand-alone heater to keep the temperature comfortable. There are lots of games and puzzles for those guests so inclined. We did not use the hot tub, only for lack of time. My family and I would definitely be interested in rebooking the Cardinal House, if we were to have another family reunion in Pine Hurst. One more point, there were six white-tailed deer in the backyard the morning we departed. Such a beautiful sight!
Boys golf weekend
Perfect house for what we were looking for. Great location, comfortable accommodations, and awesome back yard. 10 minutes from just about every course you want to play.
Another great stay at Cardinal House
We have family in Pinehurst and have been visiting Cardinal House every year for over 10 years for holidays and other reasons. Susan and David are like family to us, and always making improvements in the house. This is a great house for family gatherings like Thanksgiving, et al. Also for golf and other "friend" groups. Great outdoor deck/lawn area and hot tub for my aching back!
Great house...great location
Our group of 10 high school friends spent the weekend there at the Cardinal House. We all found it it be very clean, great beds and linens. Everything we needed. We were sorry that the weather wasn’t better but we enjoyed the view of the beautiful back yard setting . Next visit we will break out all the lawn games that were available. Thanks, Susan!
My group had a great stay at the Cardinal House. The property was perfect for our group. The house had ample room and everything we needed. The backyard was a wonderful place to hangout.
Great place to stay!
As Advertised! This place is huge and having the gameroom and hot tub is a great addition. You could stay here with 12 people easily and be comfortable!
