Originally built by an architecture professor at UNC for a roaming art exhibit, the corrugated steel 2 story structure has a beautiful slate and tree branch design inside. This room provides a small sleeping room on the first floor with a full bed and bathroom with one of the more unusual bathroom doors you'll ever see. Very space efficient, but very fun.

Wonderful Escape

We live locally in Chatham County and eat at the cafe portion of the Small regularly. When we were faced with a houseguest and no heat we decided to spend that time at the Small. The Guest Cottage was perfect for the 3 of us. The cottage has a home away from home feel and a fridge, coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven in case you want to have a bite in the room. Breakfast each day is a choice of whatever you'd like from the menu in the cafe or prearranged on their off days from the cafe (Monday and Tuesday). Dave and Lisa are wonderful hosts-very easygoing and accommodating while paying a lot of attention to every detail. If you're looking for a wonderful place to stay in Pittsboro we highly recommend the Small!

Not Taken to the Woodshed

5 on January 15, 2014

We stayed at the Small B&B following a surprise birthday party in Pittsboro. Upon arrival we were greeted by name and taken to our room, "The Woodshed". The spaces are unique in size and design. The room was very clean and well appointed. The food the next morning was fabulous. We are avid proponents of eat local and the food served by the Small Cafe is all locally grown. I would highly recommend the Small B&B as a great stay over and dining destination.

Highly recommend!

The owners couldn't have been nicer about changing our reservation at the last minute from the cottage to a room for two (our granddaughters were ill and couldn't make the trip with us). The room was eclectic and fun - very clean and wonderful shower! Best of all was the meal at the cafe - which has become one of the town's favorites.
