About the property

An updated farmhouse/countryside retreat just a 10-minute drive to Pinehurst.

Rubicon Farm is a private property that has been on the National Register of Historic Places since the 1960s. The house has an updated, fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms -- two with queen beds, and one with a double and one twin -- and one and a half baths. Washer/dryer, Wifi, cable TV with DVDs, ping pong table and more.

Plan to do nothing but relax, or enjoy the nearby Coore & Crenshaw-designed golf courses (Dormie Club and Pinehurst No. 2), wonderful pottery venues, quail hunting, the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens and more. The cookbook author owner will provide full breakfasts throughout your stay.

Built by the Black family in the 1820s and once 1000 acres of pine trees harvested for pitch, the Cole family assumed the property through marriage in the 1850s and owned Rubicon until 1968 when a series of new owners undertook periodic restorations of the Federal-style house. The current owners bought Rubicon in 2005 and turned the house into a comfortable getaway for their family.

We had a wonderful stay and will be back, hopefully soon. The house is very comfortable and well appointed...and the porch is heaven.

Beautiful private location for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This place has soul, something you rarely find in other travel accommodations. Very good updating of a historic house. We so appreciated Elizabeth’s attention to all our requests and needs. We would book again with confidence.

What a special place, a gem in a beautiful part of the country!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic. Elizabeth is a great host and the property is absolutely beautiful. Fully stocked house with everything you need to cook all your meals and relax in the country. You are about 10-15 minutes from everything that Pinehurst and Southern Pines have to offer yet far enough away to be completely secluded to relax and enjoy the country side. Highly recommend Rubicon Farm!

Fabulous retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My group thoroughly enjoyed this shockingly picturesque and relaxing vacation rental. The home is beautifully appointed with a comfortable and tasteful mix of contemporary and antique furnishings and feels much more spacious than it is. The half bathroom adjoins the master bedroom but still has hall access; the large full bathroom has hall access for all. The upstairs two bedrooms connect yet offer privacy and have gorgeous window views of the grounds; the kitchen is stunning with long wooden countertops and barstools suitable for great conversation and gathering during meal prep. The two picnic style tables and benches in the dining room provide seating for many and the entire home is welcoming and inviting. Hiking trails abound right off of the property, the ping pong table in the outbuilding was great fun, and we could have sat in the two chairs behind the property gazing at the 180 degree distant tree line vista all day long. All in all, our stay at the farm was nothing short of magnificent and we will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind praise of Rubicon! I look forward to your coming back soon. And am also so glad you hiked the grounds!! Being on that much acreage is what adds to the whole "time out" experience. All best to you.

Great Place to Stay in Sandhills

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! Perfect for a get-away after the holidays with family. Far enough away from the hustle, but close enough to our favorite restaurants and golf.

Elizabeth was great to work with right from the start. She was quick to respond to questions and ensured that we were settled in nicely. Fresh quiche was delivered shortly after our arrival, and made for the perfect dinner after traveling. Fridge was full of goodies and kitchen well stocked, so we wouldn't have to eat out every night.

Setting was perfect, off the beaten path, yet close to Pinehurst and Southern Pines. Dormie Club is right around the corner and easy to get to for a great round of golf.
