The Fearrington House Inn offers a slew of planned activities every month. Throughout the year, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star inn offers wine dinners and private wine tastings held in the prodigiously stocked wine cellar, cooking classes and author readings at the on-site independent bookstore (about three readings per week). In February, the best folk artists in the Southeast come to the Fearrington for an annual folk art show in the property’s big historic barn.
At certain times of the year, though, the North Carolina inn goes over-the-top for traditional seasonal activities. Around Halloween, for example, the inn throws a party in the village center with a bluegrass band — guests, chefs and gardeners carve 75 pumpkins during the festivities.
