My husband and I have been coming to the Folkestone Inn for 15 years. Scott and Toni are the third set of owners we've met - and we look forward to meeting them again. And again. The inn is a wonderful place with an intrinsic quiet, serene atmosphere. Toni and Scott, however, have been making the inn *theirs* and that...

This was just my second visit to a B&B, so I was nervous about how to behave. The owners put me at ease immediately, but it still took me two days to stop tiptoeing around in my socks. I discovered that most people who stay in these places are normal and friendly. We had fun getting to know each other,...

Thanks Chuck, as always we enjoyed having you all. We look forward to your return visit in April, and can certainly accommodate an early breakfast and one that is lighter for you if you wish.

Great owners, great food, clean rooms, hospitality, great location. Easy check in, awesome food. The rooms were cozy, nice outside balcony to sit and watch the sunrise. Easy access. My first experience in what I believe a B &B should be. We're hooked!!

The breakfast each morning was better than any bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at, Scott is a excellent cook who should open a restaurant. Tonite was the lady so took care of your very need and was always there to help with suggestions on things to do and places to eat.

We stayed in the Wrens & Warblers room on the top floor. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. Soft, thick bath towels and robes were provided for each of us. We were able to go into the unoccupied guest rooms to take a peek and every room is tastefully and creatively decorated with its own theme....

The host and hostess are the best and the breakfast servings are 5star. Go spend a few days and like us, you will go back. We were lucky to book the weekend in the winter month of January and were the only guests. Nice !

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Falls and Creeks room on the main floor for three nights. We had a king size bed that I thought was just as comfortable as my own bed at home. The bathroom was a nice size and we really liked that it had a claw-foot tub with a shower in it. The room...

Toni and Scott have created a wonderful experience of welcoming comfort and fantastic food. Bryson City where the Folkestone Inn is located is a charming town with lots to do; good restaurants, shopping, a brewery, and the Great Smokey Mt railroad depot is right downtown. It was fun to watch the fly fishing on the river flowing through the center...

“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!”
