Tired of your usual travel accommodations? Need a little something to spark your interest but at the same time guarantee relaxation? Well pack your bags and prepare to transport back in time. Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn & Garden is your destination location.
Located conveniently in historic Fuquay-Varina, the Inn is mere miles away from the area’s attractions, when you decide you’d like to venture out. But, because the Inn offers so much to do and see, you’ll probably linger a little longer than you would at your average lodging.
Starting with the beautiful décor and ambiance, the Inn has everything to take your breath away. Imagine waking up every morning underneath a Godwin Guild woven coverlet and admiring the American Black Walnut furnishings, or opening the curtains to a simply astounding view of the gardens. We don’t blame you for wanting to stay in your room all day! However, if you do decided to head down, you’ll come across the Main Parlor room first. A common gathering place for guests, this room boasts a beautiful chandelier circa 1920’s and is accented by fluted Doric columns. Guests socialize, play cards, or during the chillier months enjoy the warmth of the cozy fire. On to the dining room where the table is small, reserved for intimate dinners with a very formal ambiance created by the lighted mahogany china cabinet and a French crystal chandelier hanging overhead. Guests may also wander into the library to view historic artifacts, read, or just simply listen to the Italian inlaid mahogany clock chime at every hour.
Guests can also head outside if the weather permits. Surrounded by amazing scenery, including gazebos and a garden, guests may want to picnic outside instead of taking their meals in the dining room.
So clear a weekend, leave your computer at home and your cell phone turned off because Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn & Garden deserves your full attention. You can get back to all of that on Monday! For now, just let the Inn introduce you to the simple things in life.
