Wonderful hospitality and house

Wes & Anna, Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. It is comfortable, well-stocked and beautifully decorated! It felt like a resort! It's obvious that you took great care to make your guests feel at home. This is my favorite rental house so far! We would love to return! We so much enjoyed your hospitality and house. It worked out beautifully to make Thanksgiving with friends and family memorable. Thank you again! Rick & Lynn Josh, Meggan & Avery Tavel

A Gem

What a wonderful month we had this March at the Timmel House! The comfort and smartness and surprising spaciousness of the house itself, its location close to both the town center and the arboretum, the thoughtful touches in decor and furnishings--all made our stay the best we have had in five years of Pinehurst vacations. We can see how well suited Timmel House is to weekend visitors, but we can also testify to the splendid way it accommodates longer-term guests who want to relax as well as see the sights and who take most of their meals at home. Wes and Anna (not to forget Rand), you are very kind and generous hosts. Timmel House will keep us coming back to Pinehurst for (we trust) years to come. Jim and Gisela Kuist

Our month in Pinehurst

My wife and I spent a wonderful month at the Timmelhouse. We enjoyed everything about the home, especially the location. It is situated in the center of Pinehurst village, close to all the hotels, the village and the golf courses. The house itself is nicely decorated and has lots of storage space. There are lots of books to browse and the large flat screen TV works great. The kitchen has all the equipment you need and there is an outdoor grill. The owners live in town and are happy to provide recommendations for shopping, restaurants, etc. We hope to return soon for another stay.....we highly recommend this home.

Wonderful home!

First of all I have to state, I "never" write reviews and secondly, my husband calls me a hotel snob! I cannot tell you how wonderful The Timmell House was for our family! The layout is wonderful and efficient with an open concept. Loved the decor and that the art on the walls was available for purchase. Beds and pillows were extra comfy as well. My favorite part of the home was that is was walking distance to The Village and The Carolina Hotel. It was absolutely wonderful! You must stay at this home!

What a wonderful part of the world!

Wes, it was great to meet you and have you share your insights about Pinehurst. We loved the house and the whole village experience. What a wonderful part of the world!! Your suggestions on eating and shopping were greatly appreciated and we took full advantage of your insights. The Villager was our morning breakfast spot each day and we visited many of the other spots. Now we have to return next year to finish the list! All the Best!!

Life in The Village

Timmel House was home for our seventh month long golf holiday in Pinehurst. It proved to be our best rental ever. Modernly renovated, the property boasts higher end comforts such as hotel- and spa-quality linens, a full equipped new kitchen, and loads of space to relax after golf. The luxury of walking from Timmel House to the main resort, or to the village to enjoy the hospitality at the many shops and restaurants was the highlight of this year's vacation. If you want to experience the true character of Pinehurst, Timmel House is where to begin.

Amazing Property! Great Owners! Cannot beat the lo

My family rented this house prior to my wedding as an alternative to getting individual hotel rooms. Best decision ever! The owners were very accommodating and made us feel completely at home. There was champagne and wine waiting on the kitchen island with a hand written note welcoming us and offering congratulations on my upcoming wedding. It meant so much! My family and I had a very enjoyable stay. Everyone loved the house (the style and furnishings are impeccable! - I would love style advice from their designer!) and I can say beyond a shadow of doubt that it was 100% better than staying at any hotel! Although I live locally, I will definitely keep the Timmel in mind for any out of town guests that may visit town in the future.

Wonderful place to stay

The Timmel House was a wonderful place to stay this past week with our family of four. It was so nice not to be cooped up in a hotel room. There was ample storage space for all of our golf gear. I can't think of one thing that we wanted or needed that wasn't there. The location was ideal for us since one of our boys was playing at Pinehurst Resort. I'm sure we will be back!

We will definitely be returning... We Loved It

We loved The Timmel House as soon as we arrived in the drive. What a gorgeous house, everything in it was perfect. The beds were just the comfiest ever slept in and huge. The house was in a perfect location for walking everywhere. Thank Wes & Anna we will hopefully be back next year xx

Everything was absolutely perfect!

We enjoyed our stay at the Timmel House and would certainly stay there again if we are in the area. The owners are very considerate and take excellent care of the property. We had everything we needed including coffee, condiments, spices, cookware and even a bottle of wine for our arrival. My husband's brother and sister and their spouses joined us for the weekend. There was plenty of room and the open kitchen and living room area was perfect for three couples. We also loved the location. Everything was absolutely perfect!

Wow! We felt pampered from the minute we walked in! Every inch of this property and its amenities live up to the reputation of the destination itself. Timmel House feels cozy and secluded, yet spacious enough for a gathering of friends or family- and just footsteps away from everything we love in a vacation. The unique artwork throughout adds a special warmth and style that sets this place apart. Super clean and comfy, and the owners seemed to anticipate every need we might have. We plan to come back over and over again!!

Great Location!

We loved our stay at the Timmel House! Great location and the house is amazingly well-equipped; BBQ, bicycles, washer and dryer; etc. Bedding and towels were a great surprise! We'd love to stay at the Timmel House again.

Truly Loved the Timmel!

We truly loved the Timmel House. It was just perfect. The layout is great, it is spacious, the decor/design is beautiful, the beds are super comfy and the location is superb! We will definitely use the house if we're in the area again. Wes was a great "landlord" and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Thanks so much!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit

Dear Wes and Anna, We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Timmel House. It is a lovely home with an ideal location. We walked to town every day! We also appreciated your hospitality and relaxing "hotel" accomodations (every detail is perfect!). It was so pleasant to relax indoors, sit out on the sun porch, or chat with friends on the patio. We especially enjoyed your wooded, backyard setting! We can't wait to stay here again, and will definitely recommend your home to friends! Thanks again! Miles & Pat

Memorial Day Weekend

We have loved our time at the Timmel House and hope to come back. We especially loved the location. Being able to walk to eat or shop was so relaxing. Could not believe how close you were to the Pinehurst Hotel Spa! You guys have done an outstanding job with the house even down to the type of sheets and towels! The house had everything we needed and more. Also loved the movie selection. Thanks again!

The Perfect Vacation Spot

The Timmel house was the absolute perfect place to spend our weekend get-away. We hardly even used our car after we arrived, partly because it was hard to leave all the amenities and the stellar design of the house itself. Every feature of the home was top-notch, from the most comfortable beds to lush towels and fine furnishings. The rocking chairs on the screened-in back porch were a highlight for me. When we did venture out, we easily walked or rode bikes to the quaint and historic restaurants and shops of Pinehurst. We will definitely return to the Timmel house, and hopefully soon. Only an hour and a half drive from Raleigh, where we live, this is an easy vacation destination but definitely feels like luxurious get-away. While staying at the Timmel house offers the restful experience of an escape, it provides the familiar comforts of home. We cannot thank the owners enough for providing such a lovely vacation spot in the heart of North Carolina. It was truly a wonderful weekend. We could not have been more pleased with our whole experience of staying at the Timmel house.

We had a great stay at the Timmel house. Every amenity was there including a high chair and toys for our two year old. The location was great for walking to the Village of Pinehurst for shopping and dining. We can't wait to go back!

Great location, very considerate owners

House is at a great location. Convenient to the village and the resort facilities. Owner was very helpful. We were traveling with two young kids (7 months and 2 years old). The owner allowed us to check in early and check out late, since no guests were checking in right after us. The house itself is very nicely decorated. All supplies are well stocked. No complaints at all. Will sure come back.

Great Visit to Pinehurst

Wes, The house was unbelievable. We had such a great trip and we all commented numerous times on how great the house was and the location. I, of course, took all the credit for finding it! I'm going to go out on a limb and say we will be repeat customers of yours. I appreciate the welcome gift, came in very handy after the first day of golf. You really made everything easy and stress free. I'll make sure to recommend Timmel House for anyone I hear about going to the area. Whoever has your place for the US Open's next year is extremely lucky!

Great house, perfect for a golf vacation

This house was perfect for our annual golf trip. I stayed here with 5 other guys, but it could have easily held 8 or 9 of us. The house was extremely clean, has a great layout and we could literally walk to everything since it is right in the village. I recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay in Pinehurst and am looking forward to going back.

Perfect Location

Everything about the Timmel House is wonderful. The house was so easy to access and is in the perfect location-- near cute bars and restaurants, little shops, and the Spa at Pinehurst. The house was lit up and welcoming upon arrival. We walked in to a perfectly clean home along with a personalized welcome note, a bottle of wine, and our favorite snacks. We literally put our things down and were able to enjoy one another's company. Anna checked in on us when we got there to make sure we had everything we needed and was so helpful with restaurant/shopping suggestions. It really felt like we were at "home" for the weekend! Everything about the house is absolutely precious, warm, and welcoming for all families and/or couples. If it had been warm, we could have enjoyed the screened in porch outside. The four of us were pleased with everything during our stay at the Timmel House. I can tell Wes and Anna are extremely reliable and will do anything to make your stay wonderful and relaxing! The four of us are already planning our trip next January to stay in this little humble abode.... Thank you for allowing us to have an amazing girls weekend in Pinehurst, Anna & Wes! -Callie from Raleigh, NC
