The Inn is owned and operated by John and Patty Byrne, John is currently the Mayor of Fuquay-Varina and Patty is a English Professor at Campbell University. 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. The Inn was built in 1927 by the Cozart Family. The Cozart Family owned and built one of the seven hotels - The Ben Wiley, celebrating the mineral spring. The Ben Wiley is on the National Registar of Historic Places and a Local Landmark, next to the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn. The Inn is owned and operated by Innkeepers, John and Patty Byrne.

The Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden was a perfect place to stay on our way to the beach. We were upgraded to the carriage house suite, a roomy space with eat-in kitchen and sleeping area. The accomodations were very comfortable, and breakfast, cooked by our hostess, Patty, was delicious and very generous. John, our host, made sure we had everything we needed, and recommended a restaurant where we were able to have a very satisfying dinnner.

We came as guests and left as friends. The hospitality was superb. The accommodations were warm and welcoming, the hosts were very helpful. A wonderful experience. Host made us reservations at the wonderful Garibaldi restaurant, which we also highly recommend. Would love to have the opportunity to try this place again and encourage others to do so.

The house and grounds are great! The best thing was the Byrnes who took care of me like a best friend. Mrs. Byrne made me a lunch to take to my workshop when she discovered that lunch was not provided. She also provided me with a snack bag for my long drive home.

This is a fantastic little bread and breakfast. It’s in a perfect location right at the edge of downtown. The grounds were beautiful with babbling fountains, flowers everywhere, and no shortage of birds chirping. Our room was adorable, exactly what I picture when I think of a B&B. The owners, the mayor of Fuquay-Varina and his wife, are completely charming and prepared spectacular breakfasts, going so far as bringing our food to us when we slept through breakfast our first morning. If you’re looking for a little getaway in a small town, I couldn’t recommend Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn strongly enough.
Thanks so much! We enjoy our Guest stay as well. Thanks John & Patty

We stayed in the Carriage House again this year. It is very nice and private. In addition to the king size bed in the bedroom, there is a separate living room and kitchen. John and Patty are the nicest hosts and provide a delicious breakfast. We highly recommend this lovely inn.

We will never tire of our stays at the Bellaire B&B! We return at least 2X per year to be pampered,, eat delicious gourmet breakfasts, meet interesting fellow visitors and enjoy the area. Jim and Dave are wonderful, welcoming hosts and make sure the guests are well tended to. We have stayed in several rooms and they are all very lovely and comfortable.. The wine hour and fresh daily cookies in the room are nice touches and we appreciated the complimentary Growler from the famous Shorts brewery. These are examples of the "extra" offerings here at the Bellaire. We lucked out with the weather that can be a bit iffy in April in Michigan. This trip we headed to Traverse City our first day and the Petosky area the second. There is much to do and see in this beautiful corner of the world. We are already looking forward to our next visit, probably in Sept. to celebrate a birthday! Tom and Mary

We stayed here on our wedding night and booked the carriage house room. John and Patty were extremely sweet and accommodating! It really made a stressful day so much easier. The Carriage House room is lovely and has plenty of space to rest and relax. The bathtub is amazing! In the morning, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast made by Patty herself and had a great time conversing with John. We will definitely stop by again if we’re in the area!

My daughter and I wanted a quiet getaway. I am so glad we found this place it was just what we were looking for. We were greeted by the innkeeper who carried our bags to our room. John and Patty were always asking if we needed anything. John fixed tea for Cathy one day. And Patty fixed us coffe and oatmeal cookies at an outside table one day. The breakfast was delicious. Lots of fruit. And boy did they know how to cook bacon. The room and the beds were super comfortable and clean. Their cats Charlie and Peter were also very friendly. Great bed and breakfast. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice friendly inn to go to and unwind.
