While disputes continue about Olympic judges, no one disagrees with The Inn at Folkston being judged the best B&B in the south. The hospitality, the food, the friendliness, and the comfort win, hands down!

We had such a fabulous time on our first trip to the Okefenokee! The Inn is so lovely and the breakfasts were so delicious! It will be hard to go back to our less elegant lives in Atlanta! The bed was great, the porch was awesome. We loved the view of the azaleas through the lace curtains.

A fascinating and unique experience. What a revelation -- a superb integration of cultures! A colorful oasis in a desert of faceless motels. On a more practical note, wonderful food, a warm and friendly welcome, and the best bed on the holiday yet. Many thanks.

We head for home following an enchanting 10 days in the southern part of our country. We are grateful we have discovered your haven as our final memory of this trip. The meals have been delicious, the bed simply heavenly, and your graciousness memorable. Last evening sitting and rocking on your splendid porch, visiting with your other guests, was also a treat. Thank you, thank you!

We loved the porch for its cool breeze and morning birds. The fireplace and robes offered romantic ambiance, and the reclining chair was perfect for quiet reading and tallying the species we'd seen in the Okefenokee Swamp.
