The Mount Vernon House was built at the turn of the century as a boarding house where residents could climb to the top of the cupola and view the arrival of friends and family arriving at the downtown train depot.
This beautiful monolith was completely renovated from top to bottom in 2006, the main house contains six apartments and is located at 355 North Ashe Street in downtown Southern Pines, NC. The Mount Vernon House is undoubtedly our most popular property.
Each apartment has features that make it unique. Apartments #2 and #3 are two bedroom units, the remaining apartments are one bedroom and Apartment #5 is an open, studio apartment which houses the cupola for starry sky views from your bed. All units are have an electric heat source.
Share the front porch with friends and neighbors or enjoy outdoor living from the private patio if you’re the resident in Apartment #2.
We love walkability and The Mount Vernon House has got it. It’s a short walk from all that downtown Southern Pines has to offer like the Sunrise Theater, shopping, great restaurants, pubs and bars, the local Ice Cream Parlor, Hot Asana yoga, the library, church and our friends at Southern Pines Crossfit,
