The Fearrington House Inn

Spread out over the picturesque village, each of The Fearrington House Inn's 32 rooms and suites has a distinct design and character, yet all are outfitted with luxe touches such as original Southern artwork, fresh flowers, a complimentary mini-bar, and other outstanding amenities like a decanter of port placed by your bedside at turndown.

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...

California, On My Terms.

This past May I took one of my bi-annual trips to California.  I love California -- the wine, food, natural beauty and diverse culture is an ever-beckoning call to visit. As a Sommelier I am fortunate enough to have visited many times, and have gotten to know Sonoma and Napa Valley in a very in-depth way.  However, all of the trips I have taken in the past were group oriented, and everything needed to be on a tight schedule, and, most importantly, I had no choice over which wineries I...

Spring’s Earliest Have Arrived

Spring's earliest and bravest faces are the early bulbs. Now popping up throughout the gardens despite the cold, are hardy bulbs such as species crocus (seen above). If you're in search of more color, the Winter Aconite, in front of McIntyre's, the Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) along the Restaurant pathway, and the diminutive Iris Reticulata, in front of The Fearrington House Restaurant are your best bets!   Full Post >

Wines of Rioja

Rioja, the most recognizable and famous wine region in Spain, is the focus of March's wine class at The Granary on Thursday, March 6th. We will be taking a look at the region's history from the middle ages, to the first "modern period" when the influence of the Bordelais changed the regions course in the mid-19th century, to the second "modern period" in the late twentith Century when Rioja delved into a more international style, creating a divide between classical and modern producers. We... Full Post >

Here’s Your Room Key

When you venture out to The Fearrington House Inn for an unforgettable overnight stay, your experience starts with a brass key. Our General Manager Theresa Chiettini hand-selected these traditional, weighty brass keys to provide guests with a feeling of home. She discovered them at the Jefferson Brass Company. Our guests love the feel of a real key and often request to purchase them as a keepsake. Do you prefer a "real" key or a key card? Full Post >

Meet Rashaad Davis

Writing about Rashaad Davis is like looking back on a kind of Fearrington Village family tree. Rashaad and I came to Fearrington at about the same time; we both started out at what was then the Market Café (now the Granary Restaurant).  We were barely more than children and that was 20 years ago. Hard to imagine he has been here that long, but Rashaad, like many of us here, has family history at this place. As a child he would visit the Village with his uncle, then the head chef at the...
