We recently stayed at the inn for an anniversary getaway. The inn was beautifully rustic with authentic finishes. The breakfast was delicious and the evening dessert and coffee a wonderful treat as well. The view from our balcony was just gorgeous and the grounds are very nice for wandering. Love its location and proximity to the quiet side of the Smokies!
Wife and I stayed here Thursday through Saturday of mother’s day weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was great and the breakfast better. Toni and Scott are great hosts and make you feel very welcome. We love the area and hope to stay again soon !!!
My husband and I needed a weekend away together...a break from kids and work....this was the perfect place. We loved our room and the beautiful views from our balcony. The breakfast was wonderful and was so serene (floor to ceiling windows adorn the breakfast room. We are already thinking about rebooking for October. Staff was great as well. Also, loved the wood burning fireplace in our room!
Our 40th wedding anniversary getaway will always have a special place in our hearts because of Richmond Inn. The rustic, yet refined setting, the breathtaking views, the quiet sounds of nature, the warmth and nurturing of the staff....Ahhhh, what a slice of tranquility! Our room had a balcony over one of the waterfall cascades below and a wood burning fireplace in the room which was the perfect place to wind down after a day of hiking with a pot of herbal tea and one of Miss Jody’s special deserts brought to our room on request. Every morning began with a delicious breakfast (the croissant French toast was the best we’ve ever had, and the Richmond bacon was to die for!), and little touches like making up a pack of hiking maps for us or packing a picnic lunch complete with table linens and wine glasses, smoked meats, Brie, and fruit to be enjoyed by a waterfall, next to a rollicking river cascade, or on the side of a mountain ridge with a view just made us feel pampered and special. We plan to return again soon!
My husband and I stayed at the Folkestone Inn for our 5th Anniversary and absolutely fell in love with everything about the Inn. Toni and Scott were extremely hospitable and the food was Ahhhhhh-mazing! We deeply enjoyed the covered porch off of our room and the fire pit at night. If there was one area of improvement, it would be being able to add more of the add ons they offered to my cart when I made my reservation. We will definitely stay again!
Every detail at Richmont is a respite. Evidence of maintenance to keep it pristine is done with such class. Guest aren't distracted nor inconvenienced. Truly a first class B&B.
I came here for peace and quiet and got exactly what the Dr ordered! I can't say enough about it and there are too many details to mention! If you're lookin to get away, this is your outdoor way. I wish I had had more time there! I'm recommending this place to everyone. Breakfast was great, brought to my room & my hosts gave me all the privacy I needed! Just fantastic! Thanks again Doug & Alice! I hope to stay again when I have more time. God bless!
Toni and Scott were very welcoming and very hospitable! It was a lovely weekend getaway and the food was absolutely delicious! I had no idea that Scott was a chef until I got home and read up about their inn and their background! The food was amazing— truly spectacular!! We enjoyed the hot tea, cookies upon arrival and the beautiful surroundings of their home. It’s location is extremely convenient to Great Smoky National Park and town. We will return and look forward to it!! Julie & John
The inn had many guests. Upon arrival, there appeared to be only one person available to assist with check in. Later, during the dessert time, the service was slow. The weather was very cold and the only helper was in great demand to deliver firewood and assist with gas logs. However, the following morning, breakfast was delightful and the servers were efficient and cheerful.
Great view of the mountains from our room / deck. Evening snack and Breakfast was good. Room was good but someone had left windows open a crack so we were killing bugs most of the evening. Overall - enjoyed the short visit. -Jim
Snuggled away in the Tennessee woods is a spectacular Inn. We went in the dead of winter. The Inn has beautiful woodwork, attentive and friendly staff/ owner, close to the Smokey Mountains, and all the quiet we wished for. Hope to be back soon.
Room was very nice, loved the fireplace. Hard to control heat, if it was on - room was hot. When it was off, room was cold. May consider upgrading the heating system. Staff was exceptional, went out of their way to accommodate.
This place was fantastic. We were looking to explore the surrounding areas and wanted a place that was close to everything we had planned. Being right in Bryson City gave us plenty of places to eat and things to explore, and it is close enough for trips to Asheville via the blue ridge parkway. The room was very nice with plenty of space. It was very nice having hot water for tea at night and coffee served every morning. The breakfast was amazing. Most hotels offer some sort of breakfast, but it is a joke compared to what we were served at the Folkestone Inn. We paid less to stay here and had better service and food than any hotel would provide. We hope to visit again very soon!
I was looking for a quiet place to visit for our anniversary and found this wonderful place. The staff was very friendly and warm and although we were away from the nearest town we were only minutes from the attractions we wanted to see. If you live in a busy city like ourselves and want to get away to a quiet place in the mountains? This is the place to be, the views are amazing, we're definitely going back to visit....
My husband and I stayed at the inn for the second time recently, and our stay was just as wonderful the second time as it was the first. The staff was friendly and accommodating, even though we were checking in on Thanksgiving Day. The breakfasts were delicious, and the views are spectacular. We can’t say enough good things about this hidden gem. I travel all over the country for business and pleasure and this is one of my favorite places to get away. We will be back soon!
Innkeepers were very accommodating to help us with our scheduling changes. The Inn had an open and friendly atmosphere. The innkeepers create a feeling of welcoming and leads to a very relaxing stay. I would highly recommend.
Very quiet and relaxing place. My husband and I really liked the fireplace and balcony in the room. The candle dessert was a nice touch. Hotel is hard to get to in the dark, but once you find it it’s charming.
Perfect setting for a relaxing few days after the stress of planning a wedding. My new wife loved the views and the staff! The staff at Richmont was hands down the best we’ve experienced. They were always there, but not overly there. Breakfast and dessert were outstanding and if we happened to miss the dessert the staff had it waiting in our room upon our return. You will not be disappointed with Richmont.
The atmosphere of the innkeepers and guests was very welcoming. It made the stay relaxing and uplifting. The innkeepers went out of their way to accommodate our last minute change in schedule, very much appreciated. The afternoon treats were delicious. It felt like staying with family.
Toni and Scott has a fantastic place. Breakfast was awesome and their hospitality was southern style. They were most gracious in helping with anything we needed. Bryson city was beautiful with hiking, waterfalls, and train rides. It was also close enough to other towns that you wanted to explore. We had a great weekend get - away. Thank you
