Tracks and Trails is a small ground floor room with a queen bed. Windows offer a close-up view of our busy bird feeder, as well as the pasture and the peaks of the Smokies beyond. Like all the ground floor rooms, Tracks and Trails offers the old world charm of low, pressed-tin ceilings and flagstone floors. Tracks and Trails is decorated with cycling paraphernalia and theme prints inspired by the nationally acclaimed Tsali bike trails just a few miles west of Bryson City.
A bed and breakfast for four decades, the Folkestone still preserves its 1920s mountain farmhouse charm.
The Folkestone’s innkeepers have created a friendly, comfortable atmosphere — from the broad front porch looking toward the mountains, to the thoughtful snacks and drinks, the helpful reference library, complimentary WiFi and the tastefully decorated guest rooms with comfy beds and thoughtful amenities.
To create our bountiful farm-to-table gourmet breakfasts, we use farm fresh eggs from our own chickens and our breakfast meats are house-cured and smoked at the Folkestone. Everything we serve is locally grown in season, much of it at the Folkestone. Toni’s homemade jams are made from local fruits and are guests’ favorites.
While we’re surrounded by a wealth of vacation activities and attractions, one of the most popular is just a short walk from the Folkestone. It’s the Great Smoky Mountain National Park’s Deep Creek Recreation Area, with three pristine waterfalls, hiking and walking trails, native trout fishing and tubing down Deep Creek.
Guests are able to access all areas of the Inn. The grounds offer a 20' fire pit, horse shoes, corn hole and a variety of other outdoor games. There are several areas to sit and look at the mountain views. Sit on the large front porch and listen to the creek that runs beside and in front of the Inn.
