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...

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.

Steve was very helpful over the phone and it was great to be able to arrive late in the evening. The Inn was warm and inviting and so was Steve. The room was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic and on time. We wouldn't hesitate on going back. Thanks, David and Wendy - Raleigh NC

Great location for visiting Smoky Mountain NP.... in a serene location away from the commercial craziness of Cherokee or Gatlinburg. Great hiking trails a mile from the inn. Beautiful property and garden, comfortable room, delicious breakfast, and friendly helpful host. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and enjoyed three nights at the Folkestone Inn. Steve and Eva are fantastic and the Inn is charming. Breakfast is delicious. No need for lunch after one of Eva's delicious breakfast!

We recently experienced two wonderfully relaxing days at the Folkestone Inn, an established, old-style B & B getaway. Situated minutes from downtown Bryson City in a pastoral setting at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains, the Inn and its owners--Steve and Eva--are warm, inviting, and down-to-earth. The Inn is near numerous outdoor activities (hiking, fishing, rafting), and each cozy...

Spent three days here last October. Rooms are comfortable and well furnished. Each day a different delicious breakfast was served at 9am, which set us up for the day. The property is in delightful gardens in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.
