This is one of the largest rentable spaces you can find at 700 sf. The bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed and beautiful large closet. The living area has lounging chairs, tables, a well equipped kitchenette and a pull down queen sized murphy bed. The bathroom is spacious and beautiful. The suite is ADA compliant and perfect for extended stays, families with kids, or two couples.
The is a creative corrugated metal structure nestled into the back woods of the property. Interior has slate and hardwood floors, beautiful wood designed walls, a queen sized bed, and private bath. Fully wifi equipped.
This is one of the most unusual rooms you will find in a B&B. 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. This room is not recommended for dogs over 10-15 lbs due to size constraints.

We loved this quirky and lovely B&B, and the breakfast was simply fabulous. The Inn Keepers are the best! A wonderful getaway in the heart of Pittsboro, NC.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Lisa and Dave are awesome, the room was great and the food was FANTASTIC!!!!! We will definitely be staying here again. Check out the City Tap also if you are looking for a nice little bar / restaurant. The atmosphere was really cool, the people are all so nice, and it was walking distance to the BandB. Oh, did I mention that the food was FANTASTIC at the BandB? ;) Seriously, you have to try this place out. It is an unforgettable experience. Enjoy!!!

My partner and I recently stayed in Small B&B's Guest cottage for a couple of days and it was the most relaxing, most comfortable stay we've ever had away from home. We didn't want to leave. Lisa and Dave are warm and welcoming, and so is their beautiful, cozy cottage. From the minute you enter, you feel like you're home. The care and thought put into the cottage, its furnishings and amenities made our quick little getaway feel more like a second honeymoon. The inspiring reuse of reclaimed vintage pieces from local historic homes was charming, practical and artistic, like the couple themselves. Lisa and Dave went out of their way to welcome us, feed us in their café (great food, great coffee) and offer anything they could to make our stay more enjoyable. And if that weren’t enough, the B&B/cafe is in a perfect location for exploring downtown Pittsboro, within an easy 5 minute walk of galleries, cafes, bookstores, music stores and antiques. If you're looking for an unforgettable stay in the Chapel Hill/Pittsboro area, then give the Small B&B a call. We can't wait to stay with them again.
