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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

We booked the Cardinal Room for a single night. Upon arrival, the Innkeepers greeted us like welcome guests, not interruptions to their day. They guided us through their beautiful inn and helped confirm dinner reservations for us at an incredible local restaurant. Our room was spotless (as was the rest of the house) and breakfast was overwhelming and delicious. John and Patty were informative, charming, and excellent hosts. We are live in a nearby town and expect to be back!
