Beautiful countryside with nice walking paths. Loved seeing the Belted Galloway cows that look like Oreo cookies. Way too boozhee for me tho. The inn is $500 a night for a standard room. No way! I don't care what the amenities are. The folks that live here are not very friendly either. Had a nice visit but would have no... More

I love taking visitors to Fearrington Village. I wouldn't recommend it as a day trip with the kids but as a relaxing day with your significant other or a day with your girlfriends it is perfect. The spa cod not be more relaxing, the lovely gift shops offer unusual crafts and gifts including local organic delicacies. The Goat is the... More

There are so many things to like about visiting here. There's a 5 star Relais et Chateau inn to stay in, with restaurant to match, and two more eating places of quality to have a very good meal, a snack, coffee or glass of wine. There's an outstanding independent book store with several weekly author events and an ambience that... More

The Fearrington cows and goats are pretty cool in and among themselves. Black and white banded animals are very distinctive and you're able to see them in a couple of different areas around the village. Also has a couple of little stores and restaurants (seemed fairly pricey and exclusive from the menus and furnishings although we didn't actually eat in... More

Overpriced "retirement" village with homes, townhomes, etc and small center village. Inn at center wants upwards of $350 a night for stay!!! Restaurant overpriced as well.

A very quaint and upscale venue. Lots of nice shops and wonderful restaurant. They did a fabulous job on our friend's daughter's wedding. Stop and dine here when near Chapel Hill and consider staying. We did not see the rooms but those who did stay there said very nice things about them.

seems slightly elitist, but very pleasant. The bookstore is a gem, and the gardens are extremely lovely to walk thru. However, if you have issues with paying $5 for a hotdog, you will probably not enjoy the quickie dining options, although the Fearrington Restaurant is supposed to be another story..quite well known for delicious meals and special occasions.

Wouldn't make a special trip to go to Fearrington, but if you are in the area, good place to stop in and have a meal or stop in the bookstore.

If you've got some money and you're thinking of retiring to a quiet, upscale community with treed lots, and a tiny 'shopping' area with a decent, if overpriced restaurant, this is worth a look. The houses are generally older, as are most of the residents, and though there is no gate, Fearrington has the feel of a gated community. It... More
