Forrest and Carol-Ann are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They were terrific landlords, but more importantly they became friends of ours. Anything we needed, they got us right away. And they offered us more than what we even asked for, including access to their grill and the deck in the back of their house. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

The Artist's Garret is a lovely, private, well-appointed spot in a beautiful setting in Fearrington Village. Forrest and Carol-Ann are solicitous hosts with plenty of local knowledge to draw upon. We look forward to returning.

Forrest and Carol-Ann's Artist's Garret was a lovely get away! I was so pleasantly surprised to enjoy the outdoor space (gardens, abundant artwork, hammock, trails) as much as the indoor space. They greeted me with prosecco and delicious cheese and crackers, which was such a nice way to start my stay in their enchanting space. I will definitely return!

Our hosts thoughtfully anticipated our needs, from toiletries to guidebooks. A small problem with the air conditioning was immediately resolved. We especially appreciated the sparking wine they provided, as well as the superb chocolates. It was fun staying in a true artist's garret, surrounded by art on the walls and sculptures in the garden.

We had a wonderful stay at the artist Garrett. My mom and I had an idyllic experience in Forrest's and Carol Anne's apartment and the beauty of the surrounding Garden and Sculpture Garden and fearrington trails. The inside of the apartment is so pretty with Forrest's art and the skylights and adorable architecture of the apartment. My mom and I were in the area for my PhD graduation. So it was a very special occasion, and we were looking for the right place to celebrate it. Also, the hosts were very friendly and helpful when we did see them however also they respected our privacy and did not overstep period we really appreciated the expert hospitality and how they both made sure we were taken care of while also giving us our space. I can't imagine a better stay in the Chapel Hill area. Shannon and Madelyn

I was that kid you could always find turning over rocks in streams, looking for what wonders nature would disclose to me. This curiosity about the natural world led me to a serious life as scientist and organizational executive. Now in retirement, I am again doing what I did in grammar school -- turning over rocks and sculpting and painting the wonders that nature discloses.
It’s more fun than any old guy deserves!
My wife of 50 years, Carol-Ann, and I are avid gardeners and nature lovers. We have created a sculpture garden at our Fearrington Village, North Carolina home. Our garden is a National Wildlife Federation certified wild life habitat. Our Artist's Garret BNB is over my painting and sculpting studio, and our home serves as a gallery of my paintings.
My wife Carol-Ann is a Realtor, specializing in Fearrington and surrounding area.
