Enjoy the exceptional services you deserve.
Vibrant North Carolina living within the charm of a small college town.
Worry free. That is the lifestyle awaiting you at The Pines at Davidson, a short drive from Charlotte, NC.
No lawns to mow, shrubs to trim or concerns about home repairs. The Pines’ grounds and buildings are kept in pristine condition. A team of grounds, maintenance and housekeeping staff smile as they complete their work and greet you by name as you walk by.
Head for a morning swim or a lecture on modern Asian history. Take your golf clubs to River Run Country Club or join your best friends on a shopping expedition in Davidson, the nearby towns or Charlotte. See Shakespeare at Davidson College tonight. Tomorrow, cheer for the college’s basketball team.
You can enjoy the natural beauty of our 140 acre arboretum-like campus or go for an extended vacation, confident everything will be secure, thanks to The Pines staff. You know you will be coming home to a clean, lovingly tended residence.
