Today, I have an additional reason to hurry back home to North Carolina. Fearrington Village opens the Spa and let me tell you…I’m going there all day today in my mind. As fall approaches each year in Southern California, I’m always homesick for the smell of fallen leaves, the crisp air, the wide open spaces. You will find all of this and more at this luxurious property known as the “Southern Route du Bonheur” (or road to happiness).
After your massage, facial (anti-aging of course) and mani/pedi, peruse their newly opened Spa boutique, Haven. Filled with Frette linens, elegant loungewear, down pillows, Molten Brown body products, and even a Kingsdown mattresses (as found in the Inn rooms), you can practically take your experience home with you!
After all that pampering, you might feel like settling down for a long autumn nap, but you’d be missing out if you skip dinner at The Fearrington House Restaurant. Dishes like the signature Wild Garlic Carolina Gold Risotto with Apple & Vanilla Jam, Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Boulangère Potatoes and Thyme Sauce are just the thing to really put you into a blissful comma after a day of pure relaxation.
Ok, are you as sufficiently depressed as I, knowing you are missing this grand opening? Awesome…I’m off to work now.
