Everything about this place is just incredible. The hosts - Steve & Eva - are warm and friendly. They really care about each guest and go out of their way to ensure that everyone has a good experience. The B&B and grounds are just beautiful. We loved the porch for enjoying our first cups of coffee in the morning and... More

All of the rooms are well appointed with lots of attention to detail and whatever you may need! The grounds and gardens are lovely and well attended. The food is delicious! And Steve and Eva (owners) are very gracious and welcoming without being overbearing. Wine glasses and refrigeration available, and coffee in the morning. What else could anyone need? Highly...

Each suite has a private porch or veranda, a great place to sit in your rocking chair and gaze at the mountains. The inn is a mile or so into the hills west of Bryson City, so it is very quiet. There is a park entrance just a mile up the road with access to hiking trails. When we were... More

I'm going to second every review here that states that Folkestone Inn breakfasts are delicious! We stayed in the Lights and Shadows room which featured interacting antique photography equipment to look at, and a comfortable bed. Very quiet, tranquil area, but convenient to town and mountains. We were out and about during the day but were welcomed back each evening... More

This was a repeat visit to the Folkestone for our 42nd wedding anniversary. Steve and Eva are outstanding hosts who show a very real interest in getting to know their customers. The Cork and Bean Bistro, recommended by Steve as a good place to have our anniversary dinner, was convenient and the service and food was great. Folkestone breakfasts remain... More

The Folkstone Inn is a wonderful, older house set right next to the southeast of the Great Smokies. The accommodations were incredibly charming with porch seating for nearly every room. We were delighted with homemade breakfast every morning and truly wonderful hosts.

We loved this secluded spot just a few minutes from downtown Bryson City. The Inn is quaint and cozy with a front porch that just begs you to sit and unwind. Our hosts, Steve and Eva, made us feel so welcome. Eva's delicious and creative breakfasts were the highlight of each day! This was out first visit, and we look... More

You can ask them anything, from information on public transport to dinner reccomendations. Breakfast was delicious and Gourmet quality. The neighbourhood and... More

Convenient to great restaurants and interesting shops in Bryson City, walking trails and waterfalls in the Smoky Mountain National Forest, and rafting in the Nantahala Gorge. The Smoky Mountain Railroad runs from Bryson City to the beautiful scenery along the Nantahala. This place replenishes my soul.
