Anniversary Retreat

4.6 on March 28, 2016

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...

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!

A Beautiful Home and Hospitable Staff

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!

A comfortable home to stay in, and excellent food to start the day

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

A lovely inn

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.
