My husband and I stayed here for our son's wedding in Pittsboro. The home has been beautifully and thoughtfully restored to it's original elegance. The grounds are beautiful and the wrap-around porch is very relaxing. Houston prepared a very special vegan breakfast for me each morning. I looked forward to it every day. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!
We were there two nights in August, visiting a sick relative about 15 minutes away, and very glad for the refreshment of this beautifully restored, spacious, welcoming and very reasonably priced place. We'll happily return when we come back to the region.
This is one of my favorite B&Bs I've stayed in. We arrived and were met by the very nice host, Houston, and as long as you can stand a Duke fan, you will be taken care of tremendously. :) We were in town for a North Carolina ballgame and to celebrate our anniversary. The breakfasts & friendly banter were great! The room was so nice, nicer & newer than most B&Bs as most are older homes. This one was older, but has been renovated so beautifully. Little touches really make it too... like the nature sounds machine by your bed, everything you could possibly need in the bath, snacks on the table. Just a great, great B&B experience! We highly recommend!
We were made to feel welcome the minute we stepped inside the front door. Our room was beautiful and the breakfasts were excellent. Our host and staff were very gracious seeing to our every needs. It was so nice to set on the porch and swing at the end of the day. A close walk to town and restaurants. Would recommend to everyone.
The rooms were comfortable and had individually controlled air-conditioning settings, the breakfast was amazing and a great way to start my days, and it was just a short walk into town.
This lovely home feels like someplace I aspire to live in some day! Thank you to Houston & Cheryl & Co, for a very happy, comfortable, visit. Small thoughtful details everywhere make your guests feel pampered and welcome.
We enjoyed our time in the Retreat Room. The room was very clean and comfortable. The two person tub was a nice treat at the end of a long day, and breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We recommend staying at the Rosemary House B&B when traveling to Pittsboro, NC.
We needed a change of scenery and a break in routine. 488 West B&B was the perfect solution. Cheryl and Houston are terrific owners, who compliment their lovingly restored and beautifully kept B&B. Our room was well appointed, very clean and VERYcomfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Convenient to Chapel Hill and quaint shops in Pittsboro...458 West is a great value.
I spent two nights in the Tree House in January and six nights in the Woodshed in March. I thoroughly enjoyed the ambience of the inn. The “Sleep Number” beds were comfortable and climate control was excellent. Breakfasts were wonderful! The couple who stayed next to me in the Tree House last week said that the food was the best B&B food they had ever encountered. (This was my first B&B; I usually stay in Marriott or Choice Hotel properties.) Lisa, Dave, and the rest of the staff were very accommodating and pleasant.The three-block walk to Roy Underhill’s school was pleasant. I plan to stay there again whenever I attend The Woodwright’s School (which was also a terrific experience).
My husband and I took the Treehouse for a week, and while it was a little tight for two people, we were perfectly accommodated and very happy with this b&b. The bed was comfortable, the mini-split provided perfect temperature control (and so quiet!), and the shower was nice and hot with very good water pressure. The innkeepers provided large quantities of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, so we had plenty to last us the whole week. And I loved their solution for counterspace around the sink! The room is roofed in metal, and we got the treat of a musical rainshower one evening as we drifted off to sleep. We took this room because I was taking a class in town and liked the idea of being able to walk a few blocks to get to school...but we will be coming back for the food! You can order anything you want for breakfast, and every single thing was delicious! I tried their side of "whatever veggies looked good at the market yesterday," and it was so good I ordered it again every day after that. Dave and Lisa are friendly, generous, and happy people. They were wonderful hosts, and I loved hearing their banter in the kitchen as the cafe started getting busy in the mornings. They clearly love what they do, and they absolutely do it well!
We are repeat visitors to 458 West B&Bnd and as always we had a wonderful stay. Once again we enjoyed the lovely front porch and landscape. The beauty and detail of this place is spectacular. We were a party of four couples and we all had beautiful and comfortable rooms! And of course the breakfast was delicious and the hospitality excellent. We we will be back and always look forward to our stay!!
Our family of four stayed in the Guest House for a week during the Christmas holidays so we could be near family. Because my elderly mother moved from her large home to a small townhouse, we needed a different place to stay this year. Small B & B satisfied our needs perfectly. First, the owners and staff are very warm, personable and welcoming! This place is both intimate and private. The Guest House was much larger than anticipated and we even had room for a small Christmas tree! The breakfast was soooo delicious and convenient! LOVED being able to walk over for a friendly morning greeting and a cozy meal (very generous servings!) or just a cup of coffee. Enjoyed the folk art and other artistic expressions throughout the property. One-of-kind place! Good neighborhood for walking our small dog. Interesting downtown shops and a drugstore within very easy walking distance. Small B & B truly encourages a sense of community. Pittsboro is my childhood hometown and Small helped me experience it in a new and wonderfully satisfying way. We felt so lucky to have the opportunity to stay at Small B & B!!
My wife and I stayed one night during our visit to Pittsboro, NC. Very affordable. Breakfast was incredible. Will stay here again. Lisa and Dave make you feel like family. We visited the Carolina Tiger Rescue, Starlight Meadery, Oakleaf Restaurant, and all the shops in downtown.
In town on business so stayed overnight in the Small B&B guest house. Spacious, clean & welcoming. Rustic, artsy furniture & decor. I loved it! The outsider art throughout the garden created a whimsical outdoor space to read well into the evening. Located close - walking distance - to shops & antiques in downtown Pittsboro. I was so disappointed I was only staying one night! The cafe - open from 7:30am to 2pm- is fresh, home cooked breakfast/brunch fare. Everyone working there was very nice & the meal was delicious. Would've liked more variety on the menu, but quality was top notch. I'll definitely stop by for brunch next time I'm in town. Wonderful experience!
Super cute place with attention to details. The cafe has amazing food and the location is very convenient to the other shops and restaurants in downtown Pittsboro. They even helped me put together a special surprise picnic. We had a wonderful weekend!
We spent 4 nights here in the Woodshed, and had an opportunity to see the Treehouse and Cottage rooms as well. This is the most unique and whimsical B&B I have ever seen. The repurposed structures for the rooms are like no other, and we loved that they were REPURPOSED structures. We were comfortable, warm and well attended for all 4 nights. The innkeepers could not have been more accommodating, and the breakfasts in the Small Cafe were the best I have had at any B&B. We traveled with a small dog, and they truly are very pet friendly. They even have a cat, Luna, you can "borrow" if you need a furry four legged companion. :-) We have already made reservations to return in April. THANKS DAVE and LISA
From the moment we checked in until we left, we felt as if we were welcomed into the family. You could not ask for nicer and more caring folks than Lisa and Dave. The accommodations were excellent. We loved the Guest Cottage. The food was so tasty and lots of it. We would recommend this place for a stay!
My husband and I were very impressed with this bed and breakfast. This was the first time that we have every stayed in one. We stayed in the Retreat room and it was gorgeous! I loved having the chaise lounge, the fireplace and the large bathtub! The bed was so tall and I fell in love with the sheets! Overall it was a great experience and I loved the town! Cannot wait to come back next year!
What a find in a terrific town! This B&B is brilliantly located - walking distance from the sights and sounds of historic Pittsboro, NC. The lovely innkeeper makes a sumptuous tofu scramble, vegans!
We saw the pictures online and just had to try the Small B&B for our stay in Pittsboro. So glad that we did. The rooms are clean and cozy, and creative doesn't even begin to describe the decor. Wonderful woodwork with whimsical gardens and surroundings. Lisa and Dave could not have been nicer or more helpful. Make sure you stay for a few days, so that you can get to try everything on the breakfast menu. Simply delicious!!,
We are B&B people. Small B&B is amazing. The uniqueness of the rooms stands out in our minds. Lisa and Dave could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Everything was 5 star. I highly recommend staying here. We will be back. The food was so good, breakfast could not have been better. If you are looking for a B&B in the Pittsboro area, look no further. This is where you want to stay. Thanks Dave and Lisa!!!!!
Our stays have been superb. We appreciate their personal attention to guests, their willingness to accommodate individuals' needs, and the wonderful sense of hospitality that pervades the house. Whenever our travels bring us to this part of North Carolina (as they often do, with family living here), 458 West is our residence of choice. Naomi and Bill, Dallas TX
We are veteran B and B folks as well as veteran PBO visitors. Small B and B is my grandmother's old home renovated by Dave and LIsa, the innkeepers. What a joy to sit in the yard and reminisce about my childhood. To see Dave and Lisa's foresight to bring about Small B&B has been a delight for my wife and me. Finally the opportunity presented for us to stay with them and we were delighted. Accommodating and friendly barely describe them as well as our stay this past weekend.
My daughter and I greatly enjoyed our three-day stay at the Rosemary House Bed and Breakfast. The breakfasts were yummy, and the rooms were very cozy and welcoming. The sheets were incredibly soft (where can we get some?), and it was very quiet. We really enjoyed our dinner at the Pittsboro Roadhouse across the street, too! I'll be back - maybe with my husband next time!
I enjoyed my stay immensely at Small! After planning to see Jack Johnson in Cary,NC on the 21st, I began a search for a place to kick back and relax both before and after the concert. When I came upon the website for Small, I knew this was the place. I was not disappointed and my 3 girlfriends that went with me were not either. We stayed in the cottage which was perfect for us. We had everything we needed, even a small fridge. Whenever we needed ice, Dave would fill up my small cooler from their bin. The breakfasts in the cafe were absolutely delicious. You can't go wrong with any of the choices on the menu. We were there long enough to try 5 different meals. We had lunch once and it too was fabulous. Dave and Lisa are the best! Really good people. My dachshund Betty became friends with their senior dog Max and even their cat Luna came around often. The back yard sits in the middle of all 5 buildings: house/cafe, cottage, woodshed, treehouse and an open air pavilion (yes, you can be outside in the rain!). They have chairs, hammocks, tables and lots of shade. The yard art is whimsical and fun and the gardens are beautiful. It felt like we were away from it all even though we were within walking distance to the main street in Pittsboro. Maybe most people don't go to B & B's to hang out but that is what I needed and it was a delight to be able to relax. I highly recommend The Small for a short stay, long stay or even just a meal not to mention good company with Dave & Lisa.
