The Courtyard Garden

Anyone who has stayed at The Fearrington House Inn has likely enjoyed the serene calmness of the Courtyard Gardens. Located between the Garden House and The Sun Terrace, this fountain and garden scene is a guest favorite.

During R.B. and Jenny’s travels, an old hitching post was found in an antique shop, and Jenny had it made into a fountain focal point for the Courtyard Garden. This garden is a quiet oasis with four boxwood parterres filled with Carolina Cherry laurel, Prunus carolinia on the north side (pathing the entrance to the Garden House, and possumhaw, Ilex decidua on the South side, pathing the entrance to the Sun Room. Jenny loved winter interest trees and shrubs. Among her favorites were native deciduous hollies, such as the possumhaw.

The Courtyard Garden welcomes visitors, while the Garden House and the Sun Terrace on each side of the courtyard are for Inn Guests’ enjoyment.
