Wonderful Experience

5 on October 30, 2017

My husband and I stayed at Folk Stone for a wonderful week. Marcy and Walter the owners are great people with whom we really enjoyed talking with at breakfast. The history of their home is so interesting. My husband loved, loved Marcy’s sticky buns best he has ever eaten. We stayed in the Rose room which is a great room with our private bathroom right across the hall way. If you want home away from home accommodations then Folk Stone is the place for you! We will definitely be back. Thanks Marcy and Walter for making our stay in Pennsylvania that much better. Brad and Cherie’

Lovely B and B

We were very pleased with our stay. My only issue was that the bathroom was across the hall, not en suite. As it turned out it was not a big deal. The B and B was lovely and the host and hostess were quite accommodating. We had a very nice time.

Great weekend stopover for the Quadratec fall tent sale. Loved the historic house, and location was perfect for us. The food was very good, as well as the service! Will definitely return next year.

Several years ago I stayed at Folke Stone and had a wonderful time. Very convenient to the university (I was attending a summer poetry conference) and wonderfully quiet for sleeping. Charming house and grounds. Kind people. Good breakfasts. --M.

Beautiful Historical Inn

The inn is in a great location convenient to numerous local and regional attractions. Beautiful historical property with lovely grounds. Breakfast was great and innkeepers were friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

1732 Folke Stone B & B tops them all

5 on November 03, 2014

I have stayed in many dozens of Bed and Breakfasts over the last 40 years. Sometimes the property is especially charming. Occasionally the food is phenomenal. Once and a while you meet Innkeepers who become valued friends overnight. The 1732 Folke Stone B & B met all these criteria, and even went above and beyond. Marcy and Walter were gracious and genuine from the moment we walked through their historic front door. We were treated like family. We dined like Kings. We slept as comfortably as we would have at home. Special mention should go to the warm and caring treatment of my 99-year-old father. He sat by a cozy fire, and was utterly content...as were we all. With sincere thanks, Emilie Collens Illson

Enjoyable and comfortable stay

Let me say first that our Inn owners were two of the most gracious people that we have met in all of our stays at B&B's. The location to many attractions was perfect. Quiet but close to things. The directions that were given to each of the attractions that we visited were perfect and shorter than what a GPS provided. The owners had a wonderful knowledge of the area restaurants and we enjoyed several meals in town very much. The sit down breakfasts that were prepared were quite delicious and the atmosphere that was created was very "homey". The owners always seemed to be available for our needs and we loved the way they sat and chatted with us at breakfast and during the day while there. We would highly recommend a stay at The 1732 Folkstone B&B Inn for anyone wanting to see this area.

A wonderful find near PA wineries.

We enjoyed our stay at Folke Stone. Marcy and Walter were very helpful with ideas and suggestions about what to do in the area. The breakfasts were outstanding! We highly recommend this B and B to everyone.

In this fast paced world we live in, it's nice to find a place you can call home when traveling. This for us is 1732 Folke Stone Bed and Breakfast. Found in charming West Chester Pa and very close to Longwood Gardens and the various DuPont estates, and Brandywine Valley attractions, this B&B is just above all the rest in value and service. Overseen by it's hosts, Marcy and Walter Schmoll, the B&B is packed with it's own history. An informative history of Folke Stone comes with your stay. The hosts make it a special place to relax. The rooms though small, are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are across the hall from your room, but robes are provided. If you are booking the Jenny Lind room, just know that it's bath is very small. The breakfasts are so special here. Marcy makes each one deliciously different with healthy ingredients that fill you right up. Walter will light a lovely fire in the diningroom fireplace each morning for your enjoyment and warmth in the winter. We have come back to Folke Stone again and again and have had a wonderful visit each time. We concider Marcy and Walter our dear friends and Folke Stone our home away from home.

Home away from home!

We recently visited West Chester, PA for our sons family weekend at WCU and stayed at this wonderfully cozy bed and breakfast. What a gem! The rooms were lovely and clean, the location was just about six minutes from the hub of West Chester and the hosts, Marcy & Walter, were so welcoming. They provided us with delicious breakfasts' consisting of homemade breads, fresh fruit and egg stratas with sausage and pancakes. They joined us at the table each morning and spent time telling us about the area and its history and answering any questions we had. They were so warm and friendly. During my sons next four year stay at the University, we will have many opportunities to visit and I know we will be staying at the Folke Stone B&B for those visits. The beautiful rooms, wonderful food and gracious hospitality is a winner! Don't miss this place!
