Beat the Heat!

Now that summer has arrived we certainly are feeling the heat here in central North Carolina!  With the temperatures reaching near 90 degrees the past few weeks, many are looking for relief from the sun and humidity.  What some might not know is that besides our outdoor pool we offer to Fearrington House Inn guests, we also have complimentary bikes as well as plenty of shaded trails within our community.  What better way to stay active (and cool!) than with a bike ride or walk through one of...

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...

A Massage Just for Desk Workers

We realize that many people have computer or desk related jobs these days. Did you know that this can take a toll on your body? Anyone out there with neck aches? Rounded shoulders?

Our bodies are not designed to sit for long periods of time. Our massage therapists at The Spa at Fearrington have designed a massage... Full Post >

Stone Cold Belties!

While most have seen our lively Beltie Crew in the front pastures as they enter the Village Center, only some know where to find their friends made of stone that also "live and graze" in Fearrington.  When the temperatures started to drop in the Fall some of our residents took it upon themselves to keep our concrete sheep nice and warm throughout the winter with scarves and little leg warmers!  To visit with these friendly animals we challenge you to come find them and their handmade...

Time to Hibernate!

As the temperatures continue to drop, we find ourselves wearing more layers and walking a little quicker around the Village to get inside and warm up.  Here at Fearrington we give you just one more reason to enjoy the chilly weather from the luxury of your Inn or Meeting Room with our warm and cozy fireplaces!  With just a flip of a switch a fire is ignited and the room heats up within minutes.
