“My brand loyalty to Relais & Châteaux, which offers many properties in off-the-beaten-path destinations, led me to the intimate, 32-room The Fearrington House Inn (230 Market Street, Tel: 919-542- 2121., 20 miles south of Durham and I-85. The rural setting is unmistakably “Southern”—think “Southern charm,” “Southern comfort” and “Southern hospitality”— and the property is as Relais & Châteaux as it gets (thank the owners RB and Jenny Fitch, who were inspired to open it after staying in several Relais & Châteaux properties themselves).

I loved the perfectly manicured gardens for ruminating strolls, especially after the long drive. My Grand Suite, which felt unmistakably residential, had its own garden, but most of my time was spent in the property’s dozens of gardens, which are the heart of the resort.

Fearrington is like a spa treatment for your soul.”
