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!

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!

When looking for a bed and breakfast to visit on my 50th birthday, I knew what I wanted….a small historic town, a few unique stores, a few great restaurants and most importantly, a charming white 2-story house with a rocking-chair front porch just down the sidewalk from town. A place where I could relax and imagine what life must have been like years ago. I loved the history and the simplicity of the house. The breakfast was wonderful and the innkeepers kind and sweet. I would definitely recommend Rosemary House.

My husband and I really enjoyed our anniversary trip to the Rosemary House. The Haven room is beautiful, the coffee and tea bar is very nice, and the breakfast was delicious! I have some food allergies that they were very kind to accomodate, even calling me before our trip to ask questions. We definitely hope to return to Rosemary House!

Located a block from quaint, downtown Pittsboro, the Rosemary House bed and breakfast is a wonderful Southern Post Victorian home, with comfortable, quiet rooms. The houses charm is matched by the charm of the lovely ladies who keep the rooms spotless, and provide the ample, delicious breakfasts. With wonderful amenities like 24 hour access to coffee or tea, and the always available cookie jar, the Rosemary makes for a memorable stay

Enjoyed a weekend in the quaint town of Pittsboro. Rosemary House was a lovely place to stay. A beautiful building, completely renovated yet retains its historical charm. Very comfortable and nice attention to detail. Really liked the breakfast and meeting the innkeeper. An all around wonderful weekend.

I've stayed at several B & B's in the area and Rosemary House is my favorite. The innkeepers are welcoming and accommodating. The food is delicious, from the chocolate chip cookies to the breakfast to the 24 hour tea selection. The rooms are tastefully decorated and extremely clean. As soon as I walk in the front door, it feels like home. I'm already looking forward to my next stay.

My wife and I are from Los Angeles and got married at my sister's house in Pittsboro, NC. My in-laws and friends occupied 4 rooms in the Rosemary for 3 and 5 nights. Everyone was very happy with their rooms and the excellent service. Everything was great. Thanks to the Rosemary for helping to make our wedding perfect.
