I was a bit amazed, and excited to discover McIntyre’s Fine Books in Fearrington Village, during our recent stay at the Fearrington House Inn. We have always enjoyed bookstores, and had several favorites in New Orleans. Then, we discovered the Tattered Cover, when we moved to Denver, and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, with the rise in online retailing,... More

Top rate. Something for everyone. Nice selection and more importantly, very friendly. Can browse in here for hours and have a great chat as well. Knowledgeable staff writes helpful reviews which they tuck in the book jackets/in a page so you can walk the aisles, reading the reviews for their perspectives on a prospective selection. They still have a cozy... More

McIntyre's is a great little independent bookstore just outside Chapel Hill in Fearrington Village. Warm and inviting you could spend hours browsing the different collections and appealing displays. They also offer many events with very large events offered in the close by barn. Worth a stop especially if you love books and reading.

I will be back as soon as I can. There wasn't enough time for me to explore as much as I wanted to on the day we visited Pittsboro. Can't wait to go back on another treasure hunt.

I love all of the events that McIntyre's runs! They have author talks and signings regularly and kids events frequently and around the holidays. The staff is always helpful and they can get you anything that you are looking for. Love spending time here just browsing or picking out books!

Located in Fearrington Village halfway between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. An acclaimed and highly regarded regional book store, fine selection of books, helpful staff, in the midst an attractive village setting. There also are frequent readings by authors. After visiting the bookstore stop by the Belted Goat or the Grainery for a quick lunch or supper.

The book store has a nice selection of popular reads for adults & children. No "real" travel section. Book readings by the Authors are also held here or in the Barn just steps away from the store. My favorite room is where the fireplace is and some comfy chairs to enjoy browsing books as you decide on your purchase.
