A Smoky Mountains Bed and Breakfast near Bryson City NC


A century ago, our home began as a modest mountain farmhouse.

In those days, rural ingenuity enabled farming families to live on their own resources with little cash income. Part of the farm was set aside for raising their own food: corn, potatoes, orchards, milk cows, and hogs. They smoked the meat and preserved the fruits and vegetables. They made their own soap by boiling lye and animal fat. And they plucked geese or chickens to make downy pillows.

That's a legacy that lives on at the Folkestone Inn, with our respect for the land, the environment and the mountain way of life.
