Quiet, nurturing, clean as a whistle, welcoming atmosphere. Comfortably furnished. Food delightfully prepared. Attentive but not hovering hosts. Interesting fellow guests. All participated in fun, festively prepared , new years eve party. Enjoyed meeting interesting people who seek interesting and fulfilling life activities. Folkestone attracts these kinds of returning guests.

The Folkestone Inn was amazing...always going the extra mile to make our stay really special for us and our grandson (first child to stay at the Inn) during the Polar Express Season. Cozy environment with amazing food, your sure to enjoy. Looking forward to returning to it in the summer, for a rafting get-away. A Great Experience!
