Stayed at this B&B for two nights. We were fortunate to get the only bedroom with a king-size bed which is also on the main level of the inn. This room is spacious with a private bath and entrance plus a Celeste fireplace. It has a sitting area with 2 wing-backed chairs. Bathroom has a claw-foot tub with shower. Grounds... More

Earlier this month about 14 of us reunited at Folkestone Inn. When we used to spend our summers, as children & young adults with our grandparents, it was in that home, long before anyone ever thought of making it an Inn. The memories were so special, as were our hosts, Steve & Eva, along with Robin. We brought our old... More

We just spent 5 beautiful days at the Folkestone Inn. The inn is at a great location for hiking, white water rafting, driving into the mountains and is even a short hour & a half drive to Ashville. Then there are the delicious breakfasts! We ended up staying an extra day we were having such a relaxing time. Eva &... More

I've written about 90 tripadvisor reviews, and even with the places I like alot, I usually find something I don't like. I couldn't find anything that I didn't like about Folkestone Inn. The setting is perfect. Quiet, pastoral and scenic, but only a few minutes from Bryson City or the Smokey Mountain park. The place looks like a vey nice... More

Took my wife for a two night stay while we attended "Singing in the Smokies" at nearby Inspiration Park over the Fourth of July. I can't say enough good things about the Folkestone Inn. The inn is in a wonderfully private location and is very, very well maintained. The owners "know their business", and Robin is fantastic in her role... More

This was our second stay & it was even better than we remembered. The rooms are cute, clean & cozy. The electric fire places were a cute touch & we loved having it on during the chilly night. Breakfast was truly fantastic. If I could have chocolate malt waffles everyday I would be a happy camper! Great hiking nearby &... More

Although we live close enough to Bryson City to just stay home, it is such a pleasure to return again and again to the Folkestone Inn. The first visit several years ago was a surprise birthday for my husband, the second and third were treats for each other and we are trying to work out another for this spring. The... More

Great accommodations in a wonderful part of Western NC. You can literally start your Smoky Mountains hike right off of the front porch, after a fabulous breakfast... Peaceful bucolic setting with lots of outside quiet spots to sit, sip a glass of wine, and watch the sunset! Easy access to downtown Bryson City and other local attractions, as well as... More

A beautiful bed and breakfast-so close to the National Park you can walk if you like to the first trail up to a nice waterfall. Breakfast was wonderful, we enjoyed the croissant and quiche day one and the french toast with a delicious fruit salad, eggs and bacon day two. The property is close to town so only a few... More

The Inn is a real gem of a place. Every convenience has been thought of and the Inn Keepers have clearly spent a lot of time thinking of how to cater for their guests every need. The Inn is spotless, rooms comfortable, grounds beautiful, and the breakfasts incredible – these keep you going until a late lunch which is ideal... More
