Fearrington House Is Awarded the 2011 Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Rating

One of Only 54 Hotels Nationally to Receive This Top Honor

PITTSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) -  The Fearrington House Country Inn has received the 2010 Forbes Five Star Award by Forbes Travel Guide, formerly Mobil. This is the 12th consecutive year that this prestigious guide has bestowed its top honor on The Fearrington House Country Inn. 

"We're so thrilled to receive Forbes' top award again this year. It's the result of a team effort; everyone is dedicated to creating the best possible experience for our guests. It's great to receive this affirmation," said Theresa Chiettini, General Manager of the Fearrington House Country Inn.

Said Shane O'Flaherty, President and CEO of Forbes Travel Guide: "As in years past, the 2011 Five-Star properties share an uncompromising commitment to the highest standards of guest service, luxurious accommodation and unique, memorable experiences; as the Forbes Travel Guide brand grows worldwide, we are pleased to include a geographically broader, yet ever more selective, group of properties to the list."

Forbes Travel Guide's ratings process is based on more than 500 standardized criteria for hotels, making it the most rigorous and comprehensive in the industry. To achieve Forbes Travel Guide Five Star status, properties must meet or exceed the bar-setting service standards, which are determined through an unannounced service evaluation conducted by Forbes Travel Guide's inspectors. See Fearrington's comprehensive review.
