I was lucky enough to spend two nights at the Folkestone Inn over Father's Day Weekend. The room (Back Roads and Overlooks) was beautifully appointed, and small but very comfortable. I especially loved the comfy bed, the private porch with rocking chairs, and the claw-footed bathtub - great for a long soak after a whitewater raft trip. Breakfast was spectacular, with perfectly cooked eggs and bacon, and waffles with raspberries from the garden.
Steve and Eva Clayton are gracious hosts who anticipate just about any need a guest might have. For example, there is a large refrigerator for guests carrying food with them. They even rose to the occasion when a major storm knocked out their power at the front end of my stay. I had been scheduled to spend three nights there, but the inn was still closed and without power when I arrived. The Claytons were very apologetic, and quickly made a reservation for me at an inn across town. I was delighted when their power came back on, so that I was still able to spend two nights with them.
