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!

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

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.

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.

The room was very nice. The Funnel room had a great bed, slept great. We visited the swamp & watched the trains. Janis, Bill & "Squeak" were very gracious! Our breakfast both days were delightful and filling. Each was made to order, hot & fresh!! The only thing we did not receive was the snacks each day that was listed. We would go back.
