Welcome to the #AtoZ Blog Challenge and a Tour of Hotels & Inns
Fearrington House Inn anchors a small residential community and retail complex just eight miles south of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The community began in 1974 when R.B. Fitch and his late wife Jenny purchased the two-centuries old dairy farm from Jesse Fearrington. Jesse inherited the farm that was started by his great-great grandfather, William Cole who staked out a 640-acre claim in 1786. They named the community Fearrington to honor the stewardship of Jesse and his forebears.
I have spent hours wandering the gardens at Fearington. In every season their design and plant material is a gardener’s little bit of heaven.
I admit to being an addicted reader. Buying books at McIntyes in Fearington Village has cost me a lot of money over the years. There is nothing better than knowledgable book people and a vast selection of ‘can’t resist’ books to choose from. Check out this video: McIntyre Book Store at Fearington Village
Fearington Village and Inn provide those who live there, or visit, a southern pastoral scene risen from the farm fields of Chatham County, North Carolina. I think Wayne Gerard Trotman is right when he wrote…..
“A place without meaning is no place to be.”
