This was the first B&B stay for my wife and I. The property is immaculate and the Breakfast is gourmet quality. I noticed that they had achieved a 100% on the health dept. inspection certificate, which I very rarely see. There is a small library ,as well as snacks, beverages and a microwave and refrigerator for patron use . The inkeepers are very friendly and knowledgeable on the history of the area as well as hiking trails etc. The three basement level rooms are available for under $100 and were very nice.

Great location is only one of the attractions of this small and quaint B&B. We loved the room, tho it was a bit humid. The decor was fun, and the sofa bed a big plus since the queen bed is a bit cozy for us. The breakfast kept us going for miles on the Smokies. We loved the grounds, with so many places to relax and hang out. The owners, Peggy and Kay, are nice and helpful. We wish we had more time to spend in the Smokies! But we hope to be back.
One little problem for me was the clawfoot tub. It's a tall tub and for a short person it is not ideal.

My husband & I stayed in late October and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The accomodations were clean, and the breakfasts were great! We absolutely love the Smoky Mountains and this place is right there. The view from the front lawn is beautiful. Everyone was friendly and helpful, even the cat! We've stayed in one other B&B (in FL) that was larger (more rooms), but this one was more quaint & had a ton of information on day-hikes, and things to do in the area. We definately want to return!

The Folkstone Inn is a wonderful B&B located w/i walking distance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The staff are superb and the breakfasts are fancy enough for foodies but large enough for folks who plan to really hike in the park. Set on beautiful well-kept grounds the inn is a joy to come back to after a shopping trip through nearby Sylva, NC, or a full day of whitewater rafting down the Nantahala River about ten miles away..

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed three nights at the Folkestone Inn. This was our first B&B experience, and we didn't want to leave! Some of the best things about the 1920s farmhouse were the banana French toast, Pat who made the chocolate chip cookies, Geri who served breakfast, Frankie the brown calico cat, hummingbirds feeding on the front porch, the majestic Norway spruce trees, playing Upwords in the game room, the very comfortable bed, friendly guests, and the cheery dining room. With the Deep Creek area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park just a quarter-mile away, this is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We didn't even mind not having a TV. Can you tell we plan another visit?!

This is the most excellent B&B my husband and I have ever stayed in. The innkeepers are exceptional - very friendly and helpful. So many extras - cookies, iced coffee, nuts and snacks all day long! Breakfasts are wonderful. And you feel like your room is so private - in your own little world. I loved it!!!
