Enjoy the Seasons with Fearrington

Summer is almost here in the South, and there is no better place to spend it than with us at The Fearrington House Inn. There are numerous gardens, flower beds, and fresh botanicals pleasing to the eye and soul scattered around the Inn. If you look through the arbors of Jenny’s Garden next to the Sun Room Patio (exclusive to Inn guests!), you can see crabapple trees lining an intimate wedding venue. Just behind that, you can spot a fenced-in herb garden, officially used by the chefs of The Fearrington House Restaurant. If you’re quiet, you may see a rabbit enjoying some green delectables around the gardens!

In addition to the variety of blooms you can see throughout the Inn and Village Center during the summer season, the front pastures next to McIntyre’s Bookstore and The Fearrington Granary enclose Fearrington’s own Belted Galloway Cows and Tennessee Fainting Goats. These adorable black and white animals are iconic to Fearrington, and some Inn guests stay with us just to see our Belties! When you check in, Inn Reception will offer you a map of the parks and gardens, whose trails can lead you to even more pastures throughout Fearrington, so look for more Belties in the bigger fields. These special creatures tend to have their calves this time of year, so be sure to look for the sweet little “oreo cows” as they are endearingly known.

Check out our Summer Getaway Package and we’ll see you soon!

We love to see and hear about your experience with us! Please use the hashtag #FearringtonMoments and follow us or tag us with @fearringtonnc on Instagram and Twitter to share your experience!

Keeping a Mother’s Day Tradition Alive

Flowers and Mother's Day are almost a foregone conclusion, but keeping the tradition alive doesn't have to mean supermarket roses or dyed carnations. Local Farmer's Markets are exploding with floral beauty at this time of year, and putting together something as special as Mom is can be as simple as purchasing a few spectacular blooms, augmenting with fresh greenery from your own garden, and wrapping the stems with a bit of fabric ribbon to make the perfect tussie-mussie!
