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.

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.


Nice Inn and a good location for train watchers

4.4 on April 04, 2012

We received a warm welcome and stayed in a beautiful room. Obviously there was attention to detail for both cleanliness and decor. The Inn is within walking distance of train watching at the Folkston Funnel. We also enjoyed a meal at the Thai Restaurant in town. The Inn is for sale and hopefully new owners will continue to provide an excellent B&B.
