The relaxation area at The Spa at Fearrington is a welcoming spot that resembles a chic farmhouse, thanks to the custom upholstered sofas with plush pillows and wide curving wings. An oversized spherical chandelier made from wood branches adds to the chic Swedish farmhouse feel. Since this area also serves as the nail salon, three manicure and three pedicure stations line the perimeters, but you likely won’t even notice they’re there as the sofas have high backs, obscuring them from view. Once you’ve chosen between cucumber- or citrus-flavored water and hot herbal tea from Harney & Sons, you can move on to selecting reading material from the stack of numerous glossy magazines like Harper’s Bazaar or Town & Country on a nearby table. Or if you’re feeling peckish, you can order a light salad lunch (with glass of Prosecco, perhaps) from The Belted Goat deli, located across the street. Large, arched windows overlooking the winding herbal and flower garden paths flood the room with light, while two ceramic fountains emit soft burbling noises to encourage a sense of calm. The whole space at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa has a refined Scandinavian farmhouse feel, with bare bleach wood floors, a soft gray color scheme, crown molding and a comfortable, pretension-free ambience.
