My wife and I were trying to recall how many times we have been to the Folkestone; at least 7 or 8, going back about three owners ago. While one could tell that the previous owners were struggling to keep up with the demands of running such an establishment, Toni and Scott are just what the doctor ordered. Energetic and...

Thanks so much. We always enjoy meeting our repeat guests and learning more about the Inn from their past experiences. We look forward to your return visit.

Enjoyed everything from the time we arrived. Scott and Toni do a great job. Accommodations are comfortable and clean. The breakfast was fantastic and the grounds around the inn are relaxing and scenic. The new fire pit and the front porch both deserve a fair amount of relaxation time. Can't wait to get back.

My first B&B experience, and I couldn't have made a better choice. Toni and Scott were gracious hosts and provided an AWESOME breakfast experience. If you're ever in the Bryson City area and would like to 'get away from it all', look no further. The scenery is FANTASTIC!

We spent a week visiting with relatives and stayed at the Folkestone. Toni & Scott are the best hosts and the place is just so relaxing. The breakfasts were to die for, and the Easter Brunch was superb! If you ever get a chance to book a stay over a "special holiday" or "special event" , do yourself a favor...

Oh, I can't sing the praises of the place enough!! I have always wanted to stay in a B&B and the opportunity never arose...until NOW! And WOW! We were there for a couples retreat and stayed in the Falls & Creeks room. The hospitality was top notch! You are greeted with warm smiles and classic southern charm. You feel like...

We've been going to the Folkstone for many years. The new Inn Keepers, Toni and Scott were very accommodating and friendly. Plenty of suggestions on what to see and how to get there. So glad they are now running the Inn.

We enjoyed this charming B&B a lot. Breakfast was amazing!! Three courses prepared with a lot of love. The best on our whole trip. The porch and garden is beautiful and the ambiance very charming. We absolutely recommend the Folkstone Inn!

What a great two days my wife and I spent at Folkestone Inn. We stayed in the upstairs Wrens & Warblers room which I felt had the best view with a private balcony. The breakfast was amazing each morning. Scott's personally cured bacon is the best I've ever had. They were building the hen house the day we arrived. The...

Great location! Only a ten minute drive to downtown Bryson City and the Depot for the Great Smokey Mountain Railway; and a five minute drive to the entrance way to the Smokey Mountain National Park. The Inn is tucked away on the side of the mountain with many outdoor areas to sit and relax and enjoy nature. We stayed in...
