The Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden Bed & Breakfast is a designated historic Landmark in the Fuquay Springs historic district. It sits on a prominent location on a hill opposite the historic Fuquay Mineral Spring Park.
The inn was built in 1927 and was home to the Cozart family who owned a local hotel. Dr. Wiley Cozart and his family were prominent local citizens who used the home for many social gatherings over the years. Dr. Cozart served as the town’s mayor for 10 years and his wife was an avid gardener who kept the property beautifully landscaped. The traditions of the original owners continue today. As a bit of an interesting coincidence, innkeeper John Byrne is the current mayor of Fuquay Varina. His wife Patty teaches English at the local high school. They still use their home and beautiful gardens to entertain many of their friends and inn guests.
