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...

Toni and Scott made our first bed and breakfast experience fun and memorable. We were there for Valentine's day and the special meal was out of this world and worth every penny. Will definitely return!!

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...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Folkestone Inn!!!! It is by far the best B&B my husband and I have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean and very spacious with super comfortable beds. Each bathroom has an antique claw foot tub that is perfect for soaking in after a day of hiking. The porch is perfect for just relaxing and listening...

My husband and I are avid hikers. This was our first stay in the Bryson City area and our first stay at a NC Bed and Breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Folkestone Inn. What a nice, relaxing setting. Toni and Scott were gracious hosts and the food was wonderful. We hiked after a breakfast of Peaches and Cream...

We just left this morning from our two night stay and it was outstanding. It was our first B&B and absolutely set the bars high. Super nice host with Toni and Scott, clean, great area, and the fantastic breakfast was the cherry on top. Absolutely recommended from us.

My husband and I just returned from a mini vacation at Folkstone Inn. This was not our first trip there but it was our first visit with the new owners, Toni and Scott.

We stayed at the Folkestone Inn for the first time and look forward to returning in the summer. Toni and Scott were very down to earth and gracious hosts. They just recently purchased this B&B and are in the middle of doing some renovations so it will have their personal touch with time. I am not normally a breakfast eater...

“If you don't want to climb any stairs, book the room in the main level with the king size bed. If you want a large bathroom and a side porch with rocking chairs, book the Wrens and Warblers!”
