Stayed 3 nights in 'Falls and Creeks' - each room has its own theme. Comfortable room with door to veranda. Hosts welcoming, with coffee and cookies each evening. The breakfasts were different each day and absolutely delicious. Convenient location for Bryson City, Cherokee and Smoky Mountain NP. Can't go wrong here!

Steve and his wife have the neatest B&B we have been too! It is a gorgeous old home and so clean and neat. We had a little porch outside our bedroom with rocking chairs and a table where we were able to sit and relax and meditate. It was so peaceful. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and it was...

I chose the Folkestone Inn for my yearly birthday get-away based on other reviewers comments about "peace and quiet", "unplugged", "excellent breakfasts", "great hosts/owners" and I wasn't disappointed. The pictures don't begin to show how lovely the front porch and the rooms are. I chose the "Lights and Shadows" room because of the reading nook and spent many happy hours...

Wonderfully situated B&B in Bryson City. We had a party of eight so pretty much took over the place. Owners could not have been more hospitable. Breakfasts were wonderful, comfortable rooms. All around a great place to stay.

Nice, engaging couple run the Inn. They make it a 'homey' experience, with chocolates in the evening in your room, cozy living room and front porch with rocking chairs. Bryson City has a restaurants from pizza to steak and a small but inviting downtown. The national park is the main attraction, and the country setting at the Inn surrounded by...

The Inn was beautiful, the owners were friendly and helpful. Their recommendations for dinner both nights were perfect. Breakfast was delicious! The location was close to town and the creek and hiking.

Had a great stay at the Folkstone Inn. Our host Steve was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious! And what a great area for outdoor pursuits. It was a lovely relaxing place to come home to after hiking and whitewater rafting.

Steve met us when we arrived and told us about the B&B. There was a helpful A4 sheet with local trails and an excellent library of books which could be used on local interests. This is a great resource. We stayed in the railway themed room which while not large was perfectly adequate - bit difficult with large cases. old...

We enjoyed staying at this place. It was very quaint and relaxing. It was just a short drive to town, so whether you do a train ride, raft on the river or just hang out I would definitely recommend this B&B.
