The Fearrington House Restaurant is well known for its romantic, country-chic ambience and has served as a prime spot to pop the question or celebrate an anniversary for years. Lighting in the dining room dims as the night wears on, tables are spaced far enough apart to allow for whispered conversations, and the chefs are pros at drizzling the words “Will you marry me?” in chocolate sauce over a white dessert plate. The dreamy English country-style gardens outside the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant often entice dinner guests to take a twilight stroll under the tall Magnolia and oak trees.
