The Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden is a Local Historic Landmark Building and Garden located in the heart of the Fuquay Springs Historic District across from the Fuquay Mineral Spring Park. 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.

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!

We enjoyed our recent stay here. The Inn is a beautiful period house with complimentary decor. Our carriage house room was perfect for us. The innkeepers are warm, charming and hospitable. Breakfast was delicious! We highly recommend this inn.

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.

Patty & John go out of their way to make your visit a wonderful & memorable time. Recently we spent our third mini get-away at their B&B & was fortunate to be their over the Memorial Holiday when Fuquay celebrates with a Hot Air Balloon Show, (outstanding time). Always, the highlight is breakfast & meeting others who share the same experience of the town, the hospitality that Patty & John offer & literally a vow to return. I know we will. Again, thank you for such a lovely experience.

We found this gem online and we are so glad that we did. John was waiting outside for us when we pulled into the driveway....don't ever remember that happening at any previous B&B stays! We really felt that John and Patty wanted this to be an extra special weekend for us... he was able to accommodate a room upgrade right off the bat, recommended and booked dinner reservations for us both nights, and booked a massage therapist to come do a massage for me (and at the last minute for my hubby too). There was a cookie plate upon arrival, fresh cut flowers in our room and tons of movies to pick from to watch. Breakfast chef, Patty, did not bat an eye when I mentioned I needed gluten free fare and we enjoyed a multi-course breakfast both mornings! Oh, and did I mention that they flexed breakfast time on Sunday so we could do the free yoga in the park (across the street) and lent us their yoga mats to use. Loved walking through their gardens and relaxing outdoors in their gazebo, too! We have already recommended their B&B to folks back home.

We had a wonderful stay at Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn - our hosts were caring and made us very comfortable. Breakfast far exceeded our expectations - I think we had five courses! Downtown is walking distance with several very good restaurants. We will back next year.
The Cardinal Suite is a large bedroom and bath with adjoining sitting room with television and internet access. The bedroom has a queen sized bed covered with a cream on cream Goodwin Guild woven coverlet. The English bathroom has a glassed shower and built-in vanity accented with rope tile and antique mirror. A Bose radio adds to the relaxing, nostalgic suite.
The Painted Bunting Room is a clean white and country green room with mahogany twin beds. The room is accented with green, the green colors of the female painted bunting bird. An original painting of a pair of painted buntings from Bald Head Island by Malcolm Fleming which accents the room and the other antique, mahogany furniture. The adjoining bath, papered with forget-me-nots, has a glass shower. The built-in vanity offers a marble sink and golden mirror for personal grooming. A mahogany leather chair from the nation's capitol provides a place to write correspondence. The Painted Bunting Room offers a quaint setting for one or two guests.
The Savannah Sparrow Room is a large bedroom with the original bathroom to the upstairs. A queen size, rice plantation, tester bed centers the room. An antique mahogany chest with drop desk offers spacious work and storage area. The pedestal sink and pastel peach and bronze tiles reflect the beginning of the art deco period in American design. This original and restored bath adds to the experience of one's stay at Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn.
The Goldfinch Room is a charming, restful room with an antique double bed, made of carved walnut. A cream crocheted coverlet adds to the fashionable times. An antique settee can be used for relaxed reading. The spacious bathroom has a large glass shower. The bathroom is enhanced with pastel yellow wall paper and brown bows. The bow accent can be found within the two rooms. Two large windows face the historical Ben Wiley Hotel. These windows are shaded with white plantation shutters and are accented with imported tassels. The oriental carpet adds to the warmth of the pleasing, pale gold-yellow room. Other antique furnishings combine to offer a useful and nostalgic room.
The Carriage House is a bright and relaxing suite that one can enjoy some private time looking out on the inn's gardens, watching a Flat Screen TV - DVD movie, listening to a Bose radio or relaxing in a hot tub. A stately four-poster king-size rice bed topped with accent pillows of green gingham and white batten lace add to the invitation of relaxation and cottage comfort. The bedroom and living area's ceiling fans add to the cozy atmosphere of the carriage house's views. The living room's queen size sofa bed can be used for extra sleeping quarters for a small additional charge.
