Afternoon Tea at Rosemary House 7 Jan 2014, 7:13 am

There are two topics of conversation that I try to avoid talking about with our B&B guests: religion, for obvious reasons, and politics, ditto. But–bear with me ’cause I’m going to violate that second conversational ban. In August, the North Carolina State Legislature passed HB 74, a hodge-podge of legislation that repealed regulations, many protecting the environment. Can’t say I’m Continue Reading

A beautiful new cookbook is available containing recipes from Rosemary House. Our state’s B&B association, North Carolina Bed and Breakfast Inns, recently published a new version of the North Carolina Bed & Breakfast Cookbook.  It’s available on Amazon, and of course at the B&B. What’s extra-terrific about this edition is that it includes all kinds of recipes, not just for Continue Reading

Breathtaking 1 May 2012, 3:27 pm

  When you move to a new place, sooner or later you make your way to the public library. A small brick building, the Pittsboro Memorial Library.  Its front room held the books and staff desk while a back room served as meeting space. It was the smallest library I had ever seen, a busy place, overcrowded. The community college Continue Reading

Scribbling 23 Mar 2012, 7:16 pm

Sorry, little blog, for the neglect. I’ve been busy. Besides innkeeping, writing is my other job. My first mystery, Cold Feet, is going to be published in January, and editing, website, blog, tweeting, etc etc has consumed my thoughts. That’s what I’ve been working on. Visit my writerly website if you like! There’s links to online stories. Chatham County is Continue Reading

It’s a perfect time to wander around a festival listening to music and exploring what is unique about Chatham County. Heritage Day at Jordan Lake. October 1, 10-3. Celebrates the Continue Reading

… can you find a meadery, a steampunk art gallery/bar, a charter school supported by a great little Italian restaurant, a biofuels plant, and a beautiful pollinator garden? All in one town with a population of less than 4000.  Proof that you need only a few special people to create unique places. Starrlight Mead, a winery where Ben and Becky Continue Reading

Greenness 25 Mar 2011, 7:50 am

At Rosemary House, we’re trying to conserve energy and be environmentally friendly without affecting comfort or reducing expectations. Recently I totted up our “going green” accomplishments. The ultimate reuse – Rosemary House is a 1912 building.  We added new storm windows.  A major weatherization project sealed air leaks and added insulation, reducing utility bills by over 25%. CFLs in most Continue Reading
