From the Inside Looking Out

When planning a meeting or retreat, there are many components to take into account.  In the past few years, having natural light and plenty of windows within the meeting space has become one of the key factors companies look for when selecting a venue.  Fearrington is quite fortunate that there is no bad view in sight.  Whether it is looking out onto the gardens, our Belted Galloway cows in the pasture or Village Center, the landscape immediately gives you a sense of calm and tranquility.

Regardless of which meeting room your group is utilizing here at Fearrington, corporate groups are truly just as lucky to be inside than out!  Pictured at the top of this post is our Herb Garden which is visible from the large bay windows in Jenny’s Boardroom.  With three additional windows, this meeting room certainly provides plenty of natural light and a unique space in which to host your clients.  Directly above and to the left are two views spotted from McIntyre’s Meeting Room.  While you can see the Village Center from the front Library section of this room, stunning views of our pastures and the animals can be found from inside the meeting and break out room.

With the gardens in full bloom now is the perfect time to come and see all we offer including what is on the other side of our window panes!  We hope to see you this summer!

Elise & David

Elise and David tied the knot on March 14, 2014. They held their ceremony at Fearrington's Willow Oaks and celebrated their "I dos" in The Fearrington Barn! How did y'all meet? During the fall of my freshman year I noticed a cute boy at Carmichael Gym on North Carolina State University's campus. I finally realized I was planning workouts around making eye contact with him! My roommate, Jamie Roberts, told one of David's friends I mentioned him and over Christmas Break, David asked to be... Full Post >

History With A Twist

I’m looking so forward to our event on Friday, June 27th at 2pm with Earl Swift and his book Auto Biography: A Classic Car, An Outlaw Motorhead, and 57 Years of the American Dream. Why am I so excited, you may be asking, well, it’s because this is in my opinion this is the perfect storm of good narrative non-fiction. It’s a perfect slice of Americana as seen through the life of one car and its 12 owners, most notably its last, a large, profane, self-educated entrepreneur... Full Post >

Summer of Riesling and the Taste Makers

Starting on June 21st you will notice that, all of a sudden, a number of restaurants around the country have been transformed into temples of Riesling worship.  Perhaps, you will look at their wines by the glass and you will find it odd that they are offering three or four, or maybe ONLY Riesling for their white wine selections.  Some of you will say, 'I hate Riesling, it's so sweet,' others will say 'Riesling is not a serious wine,' or 'Why do you have so much Riesling by the glass?,' and...

Traditional White with Touches of Green

This past weekend we hosted a very sweet intimate wedding dinner at The Fearrington Granary in Galloway's private dining room. Jennifer and Tom celebrated their special day with 25 of their closest friends and family. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the Gallery area. Cocktail hour was followed by a splendid three course dinner in Galloway's. The room looked beautiful with traditional white and green arrangements with fun touches of ferns from our gardens. A beautiful... Full Post >
