The concierge at The Fearrington House Inn can recommend a concert or entertainment for the event, make reservations for restaurants in Chapel Hill (10 miles away), arrange for car service, or set up a personal shopping experience. She can also make an appointment for you to view houses in the adjacent Fearrington Village with a real estate agent. Because the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star inn is small, the front desk staff serve as concierges — they are well versed in all the happenings at Fearrington Village as well as nearby towns Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Durham.
Among the most unique requests the inn has handled: A couple saw the Tennessee Fainting Goats who live in the meadows surrounding the inn and promptly decided they wanted to buy one. The concierge contacted the farmer who tends the animals and, as a gift, he gave the couple two goats.
