About

The INN at Folkston - rated three-diamonds by AAA - is located only 40 minutes north of the Jacksonville (Florida) International Airport (JAX), making The INN the perfect stop for I-95 travelers who want to do a little sightseeing along the way. The beautifully restored 1920s bungalow provides an atmosphere of casual elegance, and a refuge for business travelers, Rail Fans, birdwatchers and other nature-loving tourists, as well as a romantic getaway. Sitting on nearly two acres overlooking tall pines, magnolias, and other magnificant trees, The INN is just a short walk from Folkston's historic downtown shops and restaurants. The City of Folkston, known as the Gateway to the Okefenokee Swamp (just 10 minutes southwest) is also home to the famous Folkston Funnel Train Viewing Platform. Business travelers find the small town atmosphere a welcome change from the big city and appreciate The INN's free Wi-Fi access. The South Georgia coast, including Cumberland and Jekyll Islands, is reached within an hour or less, as is the First Coast of Florida. Guests are always amazed at the size of the interior. Our wide hallways and four large guest rooms are all complete with private baths. Each guest room is uniquely decorated, containing its own private library, allergy-free feather beds, clock radios, phones, central air and heat, ceiling fans, robes, hair dryers, spring water, fresh flowers and other fine amenities. Two King guestrooms have gas log fireplaces, the Garden Suite adds a two-person whirlpool tub.

Beautiful place to stay

4.6 on October 05, 2014

September 13, 2014 The Host and Hostess are a delight. They can give you information about what you can do in the area. The rooms make you feel right at home. I enjoyed our breakfast, too.


A wonderful place

A wonderful place to stay! We stopped there on the way back from FL to WV and also because I wanted to do some train watching. We only stayed one night and regretted not having allowed two nights so we could see more of the area and enjoy the B&B a little more. The innkeepers are great people and the breakfast was really good and served with style.


Nice stay

We had a great stay for train watching at the Folkston Funnel. This is only a few blocks away from both east & west train observation platforms and museum. Slept great in the Family Room; everything was clean and comfortable. Also had a wonderful breakfast and met 2 very nice couples staying there. Ted & Alease made us feel right at home!


Great Place to Stay!

An average B&B

3.0 on July 05, 2014

Nicely maintained rooms. Very friendly staff. Breakfasts were rather unremarkable and light on portions. Excellent location for visits to Okefenokee Park.


Southern Hospitality!

Great place! The innkeepers, Ted and Alease, are so warm and welcoming. The breakfasts and evening snacks were delicious. Wonderful place to stay.


Wish we could have stayed longer!

Spent one night at the inn on our way to St Simons Island. Wish we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was awesome and made to order! Janis was great ands set the bar high for our future B&B expectations. Our room was better than described, we will definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.
