We were looking for a small, safe town to get away from RT 95 on an east coast road trip. This inn fit the bill perfectly! Warm and welcoming hosts, very clean and comfortable room, wonderful breakfast! We will be back the next time we drive south!

Property's Favorite Review
We loved our stay at the Inn at Folkston for so many reasons, including: 1) Ted and Alease are very warm, gracious and welcoming. Ted also provided very good restaurant recommendations. 2) The inn is beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in the very lovely and spacious Lighthouse Room which had a private porch. We also loved the communal front porch and garden. 3) We had to leave early in the morning and Ted woke up extra early to prepare a delicious breakfast-to-go for us. 4) The Inn is a short drive from the Okefenokee Wildlife Nature Refuge and an easy walk to downtown Folkston where there are several good restaurants. 5) Alease and Ted have a terrific list of activities/attractions on the inn's website. Our stay was very wonderful. (Ted and Alease - thank you!)

Another enjoyable trip to the Folkston Inn. This was our second visit and it was just as awesome as the first one. Ted & Alease are great host. Their customer service is outstanding. Do yourself a favor and plan a getaway to the inn. You won’t be disappointed.

We have stayed at this Inn at least 6 times over the years! It has started to feel like a comfortable home away from home. Ted and Alease are warm and welcoming hosts! We have used it as a stop off while traveling onto another state. Also, for train watching. Breakfast is always excellent. The rooms are comfortable and clean. You will feel at peace staying here!

This was our first experience at a B&B. We are so glad too that we choose to stay here rather a than hotel for our Okefenokee adventure. Alease & Ted have such a sweet spirit that made it so much more enjoyable & our conversations with them. They were very accommodating especially with breakfast since 1 of us is diabetic & also as to a time if needed to leave early. The food was very good, & the extras such as snacks, microwave, & a dorm fridge in hallway came in handy. The room & home has air condition & very spacious. Also had a coffee maker if u desired such. If u enjoy books there are plenty to look at as well as TV in the living room. We ate first evening at the Thai restaurant that Ted suggested earlier & found it to be very good. The next evening we ordered take out & ate on the veranda which seemed to be our favorite place. It's big & has rockers, swing, couches, table & chairs. We had no problem receiving service for our phones or parking our truck. All in all, we found this place to be reasonably priced, clean, beds very comfortable, very relaxing & quiet, & safe that we hated getting back to the real world.

We felt so fortunate to have chosen the Inn at Folkston to stay on our way to Atlanta. We felt welcomed the moment we arrived! Both Alease and Ted are warm and interesting and we wished we had had more time to linger to talk longer. Our room (which Alease upgraded us at no additional charge) was roomy and comfortable. The front porch is exactly what you’d want to relax on and watch the world go by while sitting in one of the rockers or on the porch swing. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and graciously prepared a bit earlier to accommodate our need to leave early to beat the heat as we were on a motorcycle. We walked to the recommended Thai restaurant and had a nice dinner there. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and we are planning on making it a point to come back! Jan & Fred

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed Reverend Ted and Mrs. Alease Kelly are the perfect host. Breakfast every morning was delicious and my husband ate foods that he had never experienced before and enjoyed it tremendously! We were celebrating our 26th anniversary and could not have picked a better place. The hospitality was better than anything we've ever experienced. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, and the cleanest bed and breakfast, than this is the perfect place. We look forward to coming back again. David & Una Green Simpsonville, SC

I decided on a spontaneous side trip to the Okefenokee on my way back to Atlanta and stayed at the Inn at Folkston. Ted and Alease are wonderful hosts and make you feel like family. I stayed in the Folkston Funnel room and it was well decorated and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and locally sourced. I was only able to stay one night, but I will DEFINITELY be a repeat guest!

We had an overnight flight across the country with no real sleep. Our hosts let us check-in early to the English Garden room where we soon fell asleep in the King Size comfortable bed. We had placed some groceries in the communal mini-fridge upon arrival. The Inn is quiet, our room was spatious, and the hosts were kind and helpful. They had cake available for guests in the afternoon and breakfast was delicious, made with local ingredients and for me, gluten - free with minimal dairy. We had beverages, fruit, waffles, bacon and local cane syrup. A wonderful introduction to Georgia!
