While planning our trip to the US Open in Pinehurst, I stumbled across the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Little did I know at the time that staying at the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden with John and Patty Byrne’s would also be a major highlight of our trip. The Byrne’s immediately welcomed us into their home. We stayed in the Carriage House that is fully equipment with everything you need including a hot tub and plush robes. The Inn is filled with antiques, beautiful artwork, and baseball memorabilia from when John’s dad Tommy Byrne pitched for the New York Yankees. John and Patty share their homes, their stories, their history, and their love for others. John even let us try on his Dad’s World Series ring. We also loved the town of Fuquay-Varina. John is the Major of the town and Patty is an English teacher at one of the local colleges. John gave us a town of the town as well as the Major’s office. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.
My husband and I stayed for one night. The inn owner, who is the town mayor, showed us around and offered us an upgraded room upon our arrival. Sweet snacks and water provided in room as well as a refrigerator in the hall with drinks was a nice touch. The owner made us a reservation at a delicious Italian restaurant. The bed was super comfortable and bathroom area very well kept. Breakfast served in the dining room in the am - absolutely delicious, a 3 course meal, so filling!! The mayor shared the inn and the towns history with us which was very interesting, as well as some of his personal history- he may be the most interesting person I've ever met. Overall, very enjoyable and comfortable stay!
Hosts were very gracious and gave us the Carriage House - which was a very pleasant apartment apart from the main house. Lovely room with kitchen, large screen LCD TV in the main room and a VERY comfortable King bed. I would highly recommend a stay here.
Even after a big snow in the middle of February, I had a wonderfully relaxing long weekend thanks to the attention to details by John and Patty. The food was wonderful and I felt pampered throughout my stay. The local history lessons were a bonus.
Room was very nice and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! John's knowledge of the area and his "history lesson" were both very interesting! We'd stay again if the opportunity presented itself.
Wonderful southern hosts with a very interesting family background. Best tour of the house and gardens by Patty. Delicious breakfast and the grits were superb! Will visit again when I am the Raleigh area.
We live in Cary and were looking for a night away. We were pleasantly surprised by this great Bed & Breakfast! After a day of work and coming there to be greeted by John was wonderful. Sitting outside sipping wine in the cool NC air while enjoying the wonderful company of others. Great conversation and history! We loved our time at the Fuquay Inn. The dinner recommendation Bellini's was great too. Great visit and the food, and welcoming cat along with the natural beauty and history made for a great escape! We will be back!
This was our first stop on our annual Girls Road Trip, and it definitely started us off in style. The innkeepers were so gracious and friendly. We stayed in the Carolina Cabin, and it was fantastic. We marveled at how clean the cabin (including cozy bedroom loft) was. It was such a comfortable stay. The breakfasts were delicious, and we had dinner at the Inn on one of our nights, and it was fabulous (a highlight). My daughter had dietary restrictions, and the chef worked with them so well. The grounds were beautiful. It was simply the perfect way to start our vacation. Thank you!
Once again, the Arrowhead Inn was perfect for our 1 night stay. Phil and Gloria always make us feel right at home from the moment we arrive till the very end of our stay. We stayed back in February and a lot of the gardens were dormant. This return visit unveiled the true beauty of them in full summer bloom. Our suite was immaculate. Cant wait till we return again!
My mother and I stayed in the cottage for a two-night girls get-away. We felt like royalty with all that Gloria and Phil did to make our stay memorable. Phil's quick wit and Gloria's knack for attention to detail and casual conversation made our time there a real treat. The cottage was beautifully decorated, cozy, and convenient (which was especially nice, since my mom has some mobility issues). I had chosen to make a reservation for one of Phil's Meals (dinner) just as a convenience at the end of our arrival day. Little did I know the meal would be a gourmet feast, as were each of the breakfasts. As a final indication of how we felt about our stay, we reserved the cottage, the cabin, and the Brittain Room for a family gathering next June.
My wife and I stayed with innkeeper Eric at the Hamilton Scot Inn for one weekend. We wish we could have stayed for a month. Eric is not only the most attentive host imaginable, he's also the builder of this incredible home. Please see the virtual tour on his website. We felt more like family than guests during our stay and will definitely make a return visit. The greek yogurt parfait and eggs Benedict breakfasts were a delight to savor. The Hamilton Scot Inn is a sanctuary where total relaxation is unavoidable.
This was our first stay at the Arrowhead. The grounds are absolutely lovely, as are the rooms. We ordered a cheese plate and champagne for our arrival, and everything was set up in our room when we walked through the door. Breakfast was also delicious--shirred eggs, local veggies and sausage, and well as fresh-baked biscuits and pastry. Our host were charming and we are looking forward to our next visit.
My daughter and I recently stayed here, and it was a lovely experience. John and Patty make you feel like family. Breakfast is delicious and more food than you could ever eat. The inn is clean and quiet! The surrounding gardens are beautiful. I will definitely stay here again :)
The Inn Keepers had me spoiled the whole weekend, this Husband and wife team is the best Uncle and Aunt you wished you had. We spent our Anniversary Weekend at their INN and we had a great time. The Staff is very attentive and polite. The rooms are great we saw almost the whole house as we were departing and my next visit will be one of the suites. I recommend this INN to anyone who needs to relax and get away from the everyday world....
The grounds at the Arrowhead Inn are just beautiful, and the Inn itself is very interesting and comfortable. We were able to invite our family for breakfast (for an additional fee), which was nice, and the staff and innkeepers could not have been more kind. We will definitely visit again.
Wonderful visit. Had a free upgrade to the carriage house suite. I was lovely. Sitting out enjoying wine and snacks and watching all the birds was a delight and the dinner recommendation was perfect. I had a great stay.
My daughter and I stayed here for one night on a college tour in the middle of June. We just happened to find the Arrowhead Inn on-line, and it was fantastic. Wonderful hospitality, a stunning breakfast, beautiful grounds, and the nicest proprietors/owners you could ever hope for. In short, don't hesitate. Stay here.
