About

Casual and beautifully maintained, the Folkestone is filled with old-fashioned charm and modern amenities. The Inn offers three floors of guest rooms each with a distinct personality and thoughtfully decorated by the owners — from upstairs rooms with private balconies and mountain vistas, to romantic ground floor rooms with flagstone floors and low pressed-tin ceilings. The innkeepers have anticipated your every need. Even after that hearty breakfast, you can enjoy snacks and drinks all day. There’s a microwave and a refrigerator for your use; wireless internet; a well-stocked game room; and maps and local books to help you plan your stay.

Really nice B&B in a good location

3.8 on November 25, 2014

We just returned from a two night stay at the Folkestone. We were the only guests since it was the last week of their season so we had a nice, quiet stay. Our hosts were very nice and helpful. We only had one breakfast at the Inn but it was great. We stayed in the Boat & Paddles room. The room and bed were comfortable and clean. My only complaints were the claw foot tub (which I hate but I knew that's what we'd have when I booked so no surprise) and the weak wi-fi signal upstairs but it was good downstairs. The Folkestones location was nice. It is right down the road from some beautiful hiking in the park. It is also convenient if you want to drive over to Gatlnburg/Pigeon Forge or just take 441 into the Smokies to see the beautiful views. Overall, we had a great stay.


4 Beautiful days in the Smokies, love this B&B

Folkstone getaway

We loved our stay at Folkstone Inn! There was the right balance of privacy with the ability to socialize with other guests and the innkeepers. The rooms were VERY clean and the food was spectacular and plentiful. Great weekend getaway.

Great mountain getaway

4.4 on October 21, 2014

We had the Wrens and Warblers room which was comfortable; had its own private balcony; and overlooked the hillside. The owner was very friendly, helpful and courteous. If we return to Bryson City we will definitely stay there again.


Beautiful place!

Steve and Eva make you feel at home immediately and their inn is a little piece of Heaven in Bryson City! Loved our room and the breakfast was scrumptious! The grounds are so lovely and so close to the pretty little town. What a wonderful place to rest and relax! Thank you, Steve and Eva!


Charming, Peaceful, Relaxing Stay

5 on October 18, 2014

We stayed for two days, as a layover, while traveling from Texas to DC. I had found this B&B on the internet, and was not disappointed in the least. Steve and Eva have a very relaxing and inviting home, and when you stay there you feel as if this is your home. The property is beautiful. And the rooms have private porches with rockers. A great way to start your morning with a cup of coffee on the porch! We had to leave early (before breakfast) on the second day and Steve was very kind to offer us a voucher for a diner in town that opened early. I will return sometime in the future and stay longer the next time. This is a beautiful place to seek a time of refreshing or retreat.
