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.

The Folkestone Inn, with its charming setting, comfortable rooms, quiet environment and terrific breakfast meals, was our first ever stay at a bed and breakfast. And what a very high standard the Folkestone Inn and staff has set for us as far as visiting other B&B's! We had all the comforts of home while staying in a place that had... More

I tried to reserve one night at Folkstone Inn and was told there was a two night minimum (although it didn't state that on the website for the time of year we were coming). As it turned out our trip needed a 2 night stay so we did book with them. The property is very nice and Steve was very... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your input. We are sorry that you were upset because you had to book two nights even though your trip required it. Had you told us while you were upset about this rather than let it fester, we could have explained to you why and maybe you would have enjoyed your stay. The couple who... More

A very good accomodation on an unique location and a very good breakfast. Very friendly innkeepers who do everything to serve you. It is very close to Indian Creek, a wonderful area for hiking. Dick and Lenneke (Netherlands)

My husband and I recently stayed at the Folkstone Inn in NC. Our room and the views were great and what impressed me the most was how clean everything was. It was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast. The setting was very peaceful and we enjoyed the entire property. The owners were very nice. I would consider another... More

Spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, a very peaceful setting. Breakfasts we inventive, not the run of the mill bacon and eggs. Our room was cozy and quiet. Very much enjoyed our little break away from day to day life.

We have stayed here several times. This inn is a great base for exploring the environs around Bryson City including the Smokey Mountains park and the Nantahala gorge. The hosts Steve and Eva are super accommodating and friendly. We booked the Valentines Day Special and had a great time. We had an awesome special occasion dinner here for this visit.... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and I'm so glad we chose the Folkstone Inn! We were there on Valentines weekend and stayed in the Wren and Warblers room. It was just lovely. Breakfast was simply amazing. We also enjoyed a very elegant Valentines Dinner! From the Chateaubriand with merlot sauce and Lobster mashed potatoes... More

We stayed at Folkestone Inn for Valentine's weekend. The special occasion dinner was wonderful and the candlelit intimate dining room was beautiful. The room was comfortable and we felt very well cared for the entire trip. It was fun meeting the other guests and Steve was an exceptional host. There are some beautiful hiking trails close to the inn. It... More
