Inspired by the tasty handcrafted cocktails featured at The Fearrington House Restaurant or The Granary? So are we. These are truly works of art and though we could never replicate such stunners, we can come close thanks to some bartending accessories new at Dovecote.
Molds from Peak Ice Works act as the base for your specialty drink. We have two; one makes massive cubes and the other makes crushed ice (it’s much easier than crushing it yourself!) We love these because they keep our drink cold without watering it down.
Use our handy cocktail books as a guide and the Mason Shaker to expertly mix your ingredients. From foraged ingredients to the elements that make up a classic cocktail, we have the ideal recipe for any delightful libation you crave!
Invite your friends, whip up a few snacks, and show off your newly acquired aperitif skills!

In Our Gardens
Did you know many of our floral arrangements throughout the Village (and sometimes at our special events) are made using flowers grown in our own gardens? One of the best spots to see these blossoms is in the cutting garden.
Tucked away from the Village Center, the bench in the cutting garden is the perfect place to rest and relax in the shade. Take in the quiet blooms and watch the bees and butterflies keep our gardens looking beautiful. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a... Full Post >

At The Fearrington House Inn
Do you ever wonder what happens to your slippers after you check out of The Fearrington House Inn? Or what happens to older bed linens?
The Inn partners with several organizations to make sure none of these materials go to waste. Inn guest slippers go to InterAct, a non-profit United Way agency that provides safety, support and awareness to victims of domestic violence and assault.
Bed linens and sheets that are torn, swapped out with new colors, or otherwise replaced but in excellent... Full Post >
