I gave them 5 stars because they made me feel so at home. Ted told me all about the local train activities and history. I walked over two the high school and watched a football and then a softball game. It was great. Ted and Alease greeted me in the morning and sent me away on my bicycle with a... More

Ted, his wife and daughter were very nice, professional, and welcoming. Ted upgraded our choice of room before we got there. Once we got checked in he was able to quickly get us booked on a sunset tour on the swamp that night with a great guide. We spent two hours on the water. Our bed was very comfortable; the... More

We stayed for a night in the family room at the Inn and had a delightful stay. My husband, son, mother-in-law and me really enjoyed the atmosphere and all of the amenities that the Inn had to offer. Ted and Alease were so accommodating and the entire house was just beautiful! Our room was spacious and spotless and their little... More

Relaxed friendly welcome with some lovely hosts. Facilities fantastic and absolutely spotless, I don't think we've stopped at anywhere cleaner. The warmth of the hosts is what makes a good stay for us so can't recommend Ted and family enough. Local area fascinating - quintessential small American town, not into trains but still found them interesting and the swamp all... More

Very convenient, very comfortable, very clean, very congenial. The owners are proud of their property & it shows in every detail of the establishment. I was so excited about visiting OKE that I neglected to realize the Folkston Funnel even existed, but the owners gave us a lot of background information. Fascinating!

I was only in town for one night, but I had the best time staying at the Inn. Such welcoming owners, a great breakfast with farm fresh eggs and locally purchased ingredients, and the ideal location for visiting the Swamp and the Folkston Funnel. I loved the historic charm of the house, the comfort of my room, and the great... More

We're so glad we kept on driving to reach Folkston, instead of staying further north as we'd initially intended. The Inn was the nicest place we stayed on our road trip (Florida, Georgia, Carolinas), with the most charming hosts, Ted & Alease, who weren't at all fazed by our very late arrival. We just wish we could have stayed longer... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our B&B! Thank you especially for the note about how some books list the trains as a negative when they really are not. We hope others will come and see that we are not right next to the tracks as some would think. Best Wishes to you! More

We had a delightful stay at the Inn at Folkston. Ted and Alease are gracious owners, and we felt so welcome there. The beds were very comfortable, rooms are spacious and we loved the breakfast, especially the blueberry pancakes. We spent our day watching trains and touring the Okefenokee Swamp. Great location for these activities! Highly recommend!

Howard and Susan Ted was a wonderful host perfectly suited to Folkston since he had worked for CSX for 23 years and knew all there was to know on the subject of trains. Sixty of them pass by everyday and to visit the viewing platform several blocks away was an adventure. There were half a dozen train spotters equipped with... More
