The Inn is owned and operated by John and Patty Byrne, John is currently the Mayor of Fuquay-Varina and Patty teaches English at Fuquay-Varina High School. The house was the home of Dr. Wiley Cozart and his wife Pauline, both were community minded citizens, and their home was used for many functions during the 1920's to 1970's. Dr. Cozart was the Mayor of the town for ten years. Pauline was one of the community's finest gardeners and social leaders. The Colonial Revival Inn is perched on a hill overlooking the Mineral Spring with a period Gazebo for guests' enjoyments. The gardens on the side and front yards are enhanced by the soothing splashes from the classic fountain and the many bird feeders. The stone court yard and arbor add a secret garden setting for afternoon tea or a cozy breakfast. Guests will be located less than a block from the ole'town, Fuquay Springs, for shopping and dining.

A Favorite Place to Make Great Memories and Meet Special People, especially the Hosts, John and Patty!

5 on February 04, 2015

This is a place we come back to, again and again- for anniversaries, birthdays, and even New Year's Eve! John and Patty have really helped us to feel a part of their family. And they go the second mile to serve us! John made reservations for us on New year's Eve to eat at a restaurant that was outstanding. Withthout John's "clout," I'm not sure we could have gotten reservations!

Outstanding hosts

My husband and I had a very pleasant visit with John and Patty. Our room was generously sized and very comfortable; the home and grounds are gorgeous; the hospitality was top-notch. We were within walking distance to the quaint little downtown of Fuquay-Varina, which offered many things to do. Most of all, John and Patty were so gracious in their efforts to make us feel right at home and provide us information about the town that only locals would have.

The Best

This is the best B & B we have stayed in. The owners were entertaining and helpful and the breakfast is fantastic. Fuquay is a quaint little town with everything close by.

Our weekend getaway.

Mr. John and Ms. Patty were gracious hosts with lots to share about the history of the town and the inn. They gave recommendations for top notch activities and meals during our stay. You won't leave the breakfast table hungry! They are wonderful and we also enjoyed their other guests. Looking forward to our next stay.

John and Patty are awesome hosts who love their town and are great at sharing details and history of the area. The inn was so quaint and our room out back was private and relaxing. The breakfast was delicious and more than enough. We would definitely recommend this inn and look forward to returning there again.

Delightful hosts

We had a charming and delightful stay at Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn. Our hosts Patti & John could not have been more hospitable or accommodating. They were a rich source of local information and friendly advice on the region.

Great Get Away!

Stepping onto the front porch of the Inn I swear I felt a fresh breeze that swept us into the past. In this fast paced world where a hotel is merely a bed, we found instead, an Inn whose owners were able to provide a rich experience of a town that has a long, rich, history. While invested in tradition, John and Patty were more than accommodating to modern life. WiFi was easy... They even accommodated my poorly placed bottle of wine in the mini fridge. Patty's breakfast is a combination of indulgence paired with the interest of healthy foods; she provided gluten free blueberry pancake that were amazing. My son is 14, and while he cringed at the whole experience before hand, he left feeling a sense of welcoming, and was thoroughly delighted. His thoughts were that John and Patty were simply, " very cool". I should add that we never turned on the tv available in our room. Yes, my 14 year old, instead read his book; he loved the peaceful atmosphere. We enjoyed the quiet, and both of us read, talked and laughed! We loved when the Inn Cat visited our room for some affection, which he received without hesitation. Clyde was a welcome part of our experience, he was glad to have us, and we were thrilled to visit with him. Honestly I can say we were sad to leave. I know we will return again and hopefully soon. Thank you John and Patty for making our stay so perfect!

fun at fuquay
