Debbie was super friendly and accommodating of my early arrival time. The room was very comfy (with lots of convenient touches like coffee bar right outside the door upstairs) and the homestyle breakfast was abundant and tasty. Bonus - very talkative cat greeting me outside by the porch when I arrived.

Excellent stay!

We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute of it! The room was perfect and we spent an evening on the porch's rockers with a glass of wine...ideal! The food was exceptional as was the host Debbie. She knew we are vegan and her dishes were inventive, exciting, new for us (grits for the first time!), and utterly delicious! She could not have been more gracious, accommodating, and kind..just a wonderful person!!

Anniversary Retreat

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.

Stop looking. This is the BEST

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!

So charming you won't want to go home!

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!

Lovely Southern Charm

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!

Birthday get-away...

4.4 on April 28, 2014

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.

Another great stay at the Rosemary House!

We were back in town for the Annual Library Book Sale and booked our favorite room in the Rosemary House. Had a wonderful time there again. Enjoyed my favorite breakfast also! Thank you. We'll be back! :)
