Had a great stay at the Folkstone Inn. Our host Steve was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious! And what a great area for outdoor pursuits. It was a lovely relaxing place to come home to after hiking and whitewater rafting.

Steve met us when we arrived and told us about the B&B. There was a helpful A4 sheet with local trails and an excellent library of books which could be used on local interests. This is a great resource. We stayed in the railway themed room which while not large was perfectly adequate - bit difficult with large cases. old... More

Truly a work of art, as well as healthy and wholesome! Almost too beautiful to eat. The inn had all the comforts of home... peaceful surroundings, books, porches, snacks and... More

We enjoyed staying at this place. It was very quaint and relaxing. It was just a short drive to town, so whether you do a train ride, raft on the river or just hang out I would definitely recommend this B&B.

This B&B is in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The hosts are very cordial and accommodating. Upon arrival we immediately felt very comfortable and as if we were in our own home. Many thoughtful amenities. Breakfasts were a gourmet experience!

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Folkestone this summer. The quiet setting, the delicious breakfasts, and getting a lifer (I'm a birdwatcher) made a unique experience! Folkestone is located in an ideal area, near many outstanding attractions. We would recommend this bed and breakfast to our family and friends!!!

I was running a triathlon at Tsali. The wife and I wanted a nice cozy place to stay the night prior and she found Folkestone online. We had to check in late and be out for the race very early the next morning so we missed breakfast, but the proprietors were kind enough to pack us to-go breakfasts. We loved... More

The Folkestone Inn is a great choice for couples who want some quality time in the Smoky Mountains. Bryson City is a favorite destination for my family, but my husband and I had never travelled there alone. We decided to make a getaway there for our anniversary and chose the Folkestone Inn for our stay. We are glad we did.... More

We really enjoyed this B&B. It was relaxing, the breakfast delicious, the rooms beautiful, and comfortable. The scenery around the B&B was majestic, pristine, and serene. We will definitely visit again!

Folkestone Inn is peaceful, charming, warm, friendly, and Eva's breakfasts are worth waking up to! Steve and Eva made us feel instantly welcome. Each room has its own balcony and everything is clean and crisp. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend.
