We recently attended the US Open at Pinehurst & found The Columns thru TA. Seeing the 5 Star reviews all we can say is: WOW, has The Columns earned their 5 Stars. From the welcoming bottle of wine on the balcony; dining recommendation at The Kintyre (wonderful meal with all the local feel); wonderfully comfortable room & bedding. The renovations were magnificent with such attention to detail by the owner. In fact, everything was done to enhance your stay from the accommodation of an early morning breakfast to luckily the second morning a gourmet breakfast to savor. This bed & breakfast is worth making an additional effort to be there as you will not be disappointed. Our sincere thanks to Michael Real, our host and the owner.
