Mommy Time: Small B&B

Need an easy, relaxing break for you and your partner during the crazy holiday season (or any other time)?  In another edition of Mommy Time, Teresa encourages you to check out Small B&B in Pittsboro.  More photos over on our Photobucket link.

I recently had the opportunity to check out the Small Bed and Breakfast in downtown Pittsboro (which also has many other fabulous places for families). This newly opened B&B is located in a beautiful old house, just a few blocks from all the quaint shops of Pittsboro. Need a little getaway for your and you significant other, away from the kiddos, but don’t want to venture too far from home? Consider the Small B&B.

The guests spaces are unique, welcoming and restful. There is a large guest cottage, that has a bedroom with king size bed, a generous living area with kitchenette and a pull-down bed. The beautiful quilt, and recycled wood give the cottage a warm and cozy feel.

In a corrugated steel structure, that was originally designed by an architecture professor for a roaming art exhibit, are two additional guest rooms. In one room, you’ll find a large tree design that climbs toward the high ceiling. And while these rooms are small, they don’t feel
cramped, and the gorgeous quilts encourage you to climb in and get snuggled up.

Small B&B also has a café where they serve breakfast and lunch. Inside and outside seating is available. You will even find a hammock amongst the trees, and a box perched on the deck with books for you to peruse.  Breakfast items range from $5 -7 and include inspiring choices such as lemon ricotta hotcakes and quiche with cornmeal crust. You’ll find soup and sandwiches on the lunch menu, and the wild card – their changing item of the day. While I didn’t get to try any of their menu items, I did have a cupcake, which was amazingly tasty!

Another thing to note, which I really appreciate, is that the owners are committed to using local farms as suppliers, and currently 60% of their food is local. I also love that the owners have made sustainability a priority -- making a point to do things like incorporate recycled elements, compost, and collect rainwater for irrigation.

So whether you want a night away and time to explore the cute town of Pittsboro, or just want a cup of coffee and breakfast, the Small B&B might be a good place for to get some mommy time (and maybe daddy too!).

The café is open from 7:30 – 2:00 W-Sat, and from 9-2 on Sunday, and the menu is posted daily on their Facebook page.  Reservations for the rooms can be made on their website.
