Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn & Garden
The Carriage House
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. The inspiration for the decor came from John's great Aunt Anna Phennecie's wonderful hand-made guilt.
Aunt Anna was a Pennsylvanian school teacher, who loved the fresh colors of green and yellow. She inspired life with her students and a new life within the carriage house's cottage motif. Baseball memorabilia of the Yankees and wildlife art of Carl Brenders (Belgium) accents the walls of the living area. Carl and his wife, Paula were some of the first guests to stay in the carriage house while on his American tour this fall. 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.
The Savannah Sparrow Room
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 oak floors are fashioned with a powder blue and taupe oriental rug. The Savannah Sparrow Room has four large windows with plantation shutters. These windows have the views of the garden, gazebo and the mineral spring. The adjoining bathroom is an extremely large bath with a shower/tub.
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 Cardinal Suite
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 furnishings are made of American Black Walnut with carvings that match the toile, fruit and bird wallpaper. The hardwood floors are accented with Karastan rugs. The most exciting view of the Fuquay Mineral Spring lends to the spacious room and its relaxed environment. Adding to the room's decor is an original painting of cardinals by wildlife artist and naturalist - Malcolm Fleming, a charter member of Ducks Unlimited.
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
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 Goldfinch Room
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.
