One of the Best Weekends Ever!!

Hubby and I went to Fearrington Village this weekend to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. It was probably one of the best weekends we have ever had.

Fearrington Village is a 5 star Bed and Breakfast Inn with a world class restaurant. We drove down Saturday (it is under an hour from home) and shopped in the little village stores. We were able to get to our room at about 3. We had one of the best suites in the place (if you visit their website, it is the fuchsia suite that is featured on the homepage). It was probably the nicest place I have ever stayed. We enjoyed an English tea Saturday afternoon at the restaurant, which was the original farm house from 1927. I had an in-room massage, and Bill went to one of the two available pools for a swim. We went to dinner at about 8:00 pm, and again were treated to wonderful service and amazing food. My dessert was called Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate. There were small portions of 6 different chocolate treats in my plate - a deep, dark chocolate cake, an orange chocolate meringue in a shell, white chocolate ice cream on a shortbread cookie, triple chocolate mousse cake, hot lava chocolate cake, and fried chocolate. Needless to say, when they brought us truffles as a special anniversary gift, we requested a to go box!! When we arrived back to our room, the bed had been turned down and port and more truffles were left for us. We slept very well!!

In the morning, we went to breakfast, and Bill had some of the best pancakes I had ever tasted while I had smoked salmon and hash browns which was also wonderful. We walked around the property to see the special belted cows and goats (they are black with white "belts" around the middle just like an Oreo). Not to worry, the cows are for decoration only, not to sources of Bill's beef tenderloin! We went for a swim, and didn't leave until noon when we were forced to check out. The front desk even gave us a goodie bag with a copy of the book featuring the Fearrington as a World's Best and a stuffed belted cow. The place was absolutely top notch, the best of the best. If you have any special occasion to be in this area, definitely check out Fearrington Village.

Bill did such a wonderful job for our anniversary - I really have to step it up for his b-day next month!! What a wonderful husband I have!

That place looks great. Hubby and I may have to go there sometime. I can't believe I haven't heard of it before. It looks so cool. I just love B&B's too.

What a nice romantic getaway for the two of you and your dessert sounds heavenly!
