Dedicated to Sustainability in our Business Practices…
Pinehurst Inn Mission: to be a premier eco-lodging facility, providing the highest level of green lodging hospitality and guest experience while preserving and promoting the unique historical and environmentally sensitive nature of our property and the area.
Although the definition of sustainability has many variations it is usually described as the balance between environmental health, economics, and social justice – a balance that will lead the way to a world where the human and other biological communities can thrive together indefinitely.
At Pinehurst Inn, we have attempted to use this philosophy in our analysis of the many long and short term decisions we make regarding the way we do business. Our goal is to minimize our use of natural resources while still providing a magnificent green lodging guest experience.
The very cool thing is that Pinehurst Inn guests continually tell us that this eco-friendly green lodging approach enhances their lodging experience. And hopefully, each Pinehurst Inn guests checks out with just a few more ideas of how they can enhance their own daily practices.
Brief Highlights of our green lodging efforts:
- Use of solar panels to heat domestic hot water in our new Garden House.
