The Inn was very cozy and comfortable. I slept like a baby on the very comfortable bed in the Funnel room? (train themed room) This is the best place to stay when traveling through Folkston. Ted and his wife Alease were very accommodating and kind hosts without being intrusive. I felt very comfortable here and enjoyed my breakfast in the... More

This past weekend was my second time to stay at the Inn at Folkston and I was not disappointed. Ted and his whole family are wonderful gracious people who make you feel like you are a part of their family while you are there. During this stay I slept in the Folkston Funnel room which was beyond sufficient and very... More

When I told my wife, we were booked into a b&b in Folkston, GA for three nights, she questioned my sanity. She now shares my enthusiasm. Many come to Folkston to see the trains go by. We were there for Okefenokee. But the highlight of our visit was the experience at the Inn. From the moment we arrived, we felt... More

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
