Lounge the Day Away

Our beautifully arranged lounges are an exclusive amenity offered to our Inn guests. The Garden House is on the north side of the courtyard and opens up to the Dovecote Lawn and Knot Garden. The Sunroom and Sunroom Patio are on the south side of the patio and opens up onto Jenny’s Garden with views of the Crab Apple and the Willow Oak lawns. These rooms are open twenty-four hours a day for our inn guests and can also be reserved for private parties!

The Garden House is the larger of our two lounges and has plenty of seating for multiple parties. The plush sofas and comfortable chairs match the exquisite taste and décor of the Inn Rooms, chosen by General Manager Theresa Chiettini and Dovecote Style’s Daneen Eaton. If you fall in love with the furniture, stop by McIntyre’s Books and ask about Gabby furniture that’s upholstered right here in North Carolina! Savor a cup of one of the many varieties of Nespresso, complementary only to inn guests, to kick-start your morning. During the cooler months, delight in the cozy fireplace with a loved one while reading your new novel from McIntyre’s.

The Sunroom is the perfect spot for a smaller or more intimate party. Search the armoire for your favorite board game and enjoy a rainy night in. Grab some gelato from The Goat and savor it in the shade of the arbor on the patio, breathing in the fresh scents of the surrounding bountiful rosemary and juniper on a warm afternoon.

There are numerous ways to enjoy your tranquil stay with us at The Fearrington House Inn, so make sure to include some time in our gorgeous lounges! Share your serene moments with us using the hashtag #fearringtonmoments and tag us @fearringtonnc.

Beach Style

Here at Dovecote Style, we love a good beach getaway. Whether it's on the Italian coast, the beaches of California or here in North Carolina, you just can't deny the relaxation that sun, sand and saltwater provide. But relaxation is not excuse to forgo your fashion! You can still be chic at the beach; it's so simple. We love our Matta pareos for cute beach cover-ups. The patterns and colors scream summer and there are so many ways to wear them. Plus they come in the sweetest matching bag... Full Post >

Britni & Marc

Britni and Marc tied the knot on March 7, 2015. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? We met through a mutual friend in Richmond, VA. Tell us about the engagement? We got engaged on a very windy and cold May day in Virginia Beach. Marc hoped for a ocean view engagement, but the weather just wouldn’t compromise. What made Fearrington the place for you to say “I... Full Post >

Pups Get Pampered, Too!

When you check in, feel free to bring your pup just outside of Inn Reception, and our staff will come out to greet you and give your pup a pat on the head or a belly rub.
