A Great Escape!

Can't say enough good stuff about this B&B. Food is awesome. The convenience of the guest kitchen with snacks round the clock is great. The host and hostess are warm and helpful. We want to go back again.

We Will be Back!

We had a great time at the Folkestone Inn! It was a last minute trip for my birthday, and so glad we went! The Inn is lovely - open and airy. The room was comfortable and quiet. Just a relaxing time at the inn and so close to the park. Hope to be back soon!

Wonderful Experience

Our stay was definitely too short. We left so welcome and so at home. The inn is absolutely wonderful. The food was luscious.

Comfy Great Inn

What an absolutely ideal week! The home is beautiful- comfortable, quiet, fun. We take home memories of a hummingbird in flight, squirrels playing, tremendous breakfasts, a huge bubble bath, and a comfy, snuggly bed.

Simply wonderful! As far as we were concerned, there was no where else to stay. A trip to yesteryear.

Great Bonding Time

What a wonderful opportunity to be able to talk to my teenage daughter without the interference of T.V., telephone or stereo. Folkestone had such warmth and hospitality.

Breathtaking Inn

The atmosphere there was great. Such a change from the beaches of South Carolina. The calmness of this place was breathtaking. The mountains give the sense of peace and security. The birds, chipmunks, and squirrels set a playful, but not to playful mood.

So Charming!

We enjoyed our stay there! We loved the antique furniture! Our stay was so peaceful and charming! The breakfasts were something to definitely get up for! They were delicious! :) We enjoyed meeting our wonderful hosts as well!

So Relaxing!

We were so fortunate to be allowed to enjoy this beautiful "little corner of the world." We haven't been this relaxed in ages. The squirrels were great for entertaining us during breakfast. We are never staying in a "motel" again!

Place to Escape to

It was such a peaceful and beautiful place to 'escape' for out first trip alone in seventeen years. We will certainly do this again.

Loved the Tub!

This was such a lovely place to "hide." It was so peaceful to wake up to birds and squirrels, instead of blaring horns and engines roaring. I enjoyed my 'claw tub' the most. I may come back just for a bath.

We Highly Recommend It

What a wonderful place to spend a weekend. We throughly enjoyed the comfortable B&B and wonderful views and warm hospitality. We'll always highly recommend the Folkestone Inn. The breakfasts were scrumptious!

Breathtaking Views

Thoughts of a grandmothers porch and swing, birds that feed in silence, a view that is breathtaking; all gave us a great 29th anniversary. This was our first B&B. It was great. We will see you again!

Something to Jump Out of Bed For!

We had such a wonderful first time experience at a "B&B." The ambience here is lovely, inviting, and restful. The meals in the morning are something to jump out of bed for! :) We wish the inn much success and happiness.

Delicious Breakfasts

Our first Bed & Breakfast stay was quite wonderful! We will miss watching the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks while eating delicious breakfasts. Thank you for a lovely three days- we will certainly be back again!
