The crown jewel of Fearrington Village, this inn sits on a 200-year-old farm that has been remade to resemble a country hamlet. "Oreo" cows, Belted Galloways, which are black on the ends and white in the middle, roam the pasture near the entrance. The rooms have views of a courtyard, garden, or pastures and are individually furnished with carefully chosen antiques. Some suites have a whirlpool or fireplace. The award-winning Fearrington House Restaurant ($$$$) serves
up swanky, contemporary fare. An elaborate made-to-order breakfast and afternoon tea are included in the room rate. A two-story spa offers treatments to guests and the public. The inn is near Pittsboro and is 8 mi south of Chapel Hill.
