The special amenities offered at The Fearrington House Inn's pool start with transportation: Call the front desk to request to be dropped off or picked up from the pool, which is just a short drive away via golf cart and located at The Fearrington Swim & Croquet Club. Alternately, make your way to the pool by using the walking paths or borrow one of the several bikes the inn parks near the front office. Tip: Do stop by the front desk first so you can pick up towels and bottled water along with the day passes required for entry.
The pool setting itself could use a bit of TLC, since the retro plastic chairs have definitely seen better days and the pool isn’t the most sparkling we’ve seen. So when you want a break from the water, check out the adjacent croquet lawn and spectator area, gracefully surrounded by day lilies. Fully stocked with mallets and equipment, the croquet lawn is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Horseshoes and badminton equipment is also available at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, so you can easily spend a day frolicking on the grass before jumping back in the water to cool off again.
