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. Charming Folkestone Inn Transforms with Passion for Simplicity The Folkestone Inn Bed & Breakfast has recently received over half a century of culinary and hospitality experience with impressive husband-and-wife duo Chef Scott & Toni Rowe at the helm.

The large front porch welcomes you as the rocking chairs beckon you to sit, read a book and enjoy the hummingbirds. The rooms are so very cozy with personal bathroom and balcony. The claw-foot tub is a nice touch! The breakfast is delicious and made by a superb chef using some locally sourced produce. The hospitality is outstanding! I felt like I was family and at home!

The Folkestone Inn is one of a kind! Toni and Scott are wonderfully hosts. The breakfast is amazing. The banana bread was the best I ever had. The room was so comfy and perfect for relaxing. The claw foot tub coupled with Toni's homemade bathsalts are a must. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bryson City.

Clean comfortable rooms, great breakfasts. The innkeepers, Scott and Toni, were extremely friendly and helpful. Bryson City is a nice, relaxed town, with easy access to the Smokey Mountain Park, very different from the insane commercialism of Gatlinburg on the Tennesee side of the park.

I've been staying at the Folkestone Inn for many years. The rooms are so welcoming. I feel at home when I stay here. The innkeepers are as nice as can be. The guests are very nice and everyone chats about their day, where they are from, etc. The décor is relaxing and I just love this house. It's beautiful.

This was a much needed break from a heavy summer schedule and really fit the bill. Making the reservation was easy. Communicating with the Claytons when having to adjust the time of our arrival was stress-free. They were very hospitable and understanding to our needs. The room was comfy and homey, a very welcoming and relaxing feel. The inn is very inviting. The breakfasts were well-planned and very flavorful. Eva's banana foster French toast and quiche pies are paired well with the fruit salad and the yogurt parfait with glazed peaches. What a wonderful way to start the days we had there. The surroundings are great,,as well The porch is relaxing and a great place to watch the hummingbirds. Other fauna, deer and turkey, were a joy to watch, too. Restful, relaxing, and welcoming, what more can you ask for?
