The Azalea Cottage is a recently renovated house with 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, and 1 half bath. The house sleeps up to 8 people (with 3 beds and a sleeper sofa). A washer and dryer is included for your convenience. Relax on the front porch swing. Train watchers are within easy walking distance (2 blocks) of the train watching platform, as well as the Train Museum in downtown Folkston. The Okefenokee Swamp, is a short 8 mile drive where you can enjoy scenic views and see a variety of wildlife (including alligators). Take a guided boat tour of the swamp or rent a boat and tour the swamp at your own pace. You can also enjoy the raised boardwalk through the swamp and climb the tower at the end for an expansive view of the swamp. An informative visitor's center will educate you and your family about the swamp and its wildlife.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Azalea Cottage. The house truly is a home that is very comfortable, quaint, and spacious. It does not have the impersonal rental feel of some of the VRBO houses. The home is well equipped and spotlessly clean. Its location is perfect for going to the Okefenokee Swamp and St. Mary's for the ferry to Cumberland Island. There is also apparently strong interest in the many trains that go through Folkston. And while there are a lot of trains, we were never bothered by the noise. You can hear the trains but the trains and their horns go by quickly. It adds to the small town rural feel. I also highly recommend Thai Smile for dinner. Wow, fabulous Thai food in little Folskton - a nice surprise.
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Folkston!
Nice and clean
Very good place to stay.
Nice home, very comfortable.
The home was very nice. We were provided every thing we needed for our stay. I would recommend visiting this area if you really love train watching or swamps.
An enjoyable time in Folkston
We enjoyed our stay at Azalea Cottage. It would have been more comfortable if each bedroom had a fan to keep the air moving. We also would have appreciated having a hairdryer and iron.
Our stay was pleasant even with the rain.
Thank you for the suggestions. We will definitely make an iron and hairdryer available and work on getting some fans in the rooms.
We enjoyed staying in Azalea Cottage during Thanksgiving break. I loved the living room and the seperate sitting area, we had early Christmas and the second room was perfect for our Christmas tree and gift opening! The cottage was very clean and comfortable for 3 adults and 2 kids.
Awesome! So cute and quaint!
Relax on the front porch swing and catch a glimpse of the many trains that pass through Folkston each day. Visit the Train Museum in the old restored depot in downtown Folkston. Walk around town for an ice cream cone or soup and sandwich at Whistlin' Dixie's and join the ever present group of train watchers at the Funnel. Take a short ride to the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge for a guided tour of the pristine wilderness or rent a boat for a closer look at the alligators in the cypress swamp. Take a day trip to historic St. Marys where ferries daily cruise the open waters of the St. Marys River forty-five minutes to Cumberland Island where you will see wild horses, deer and turkeys on your walk across the island to the Atlantic Ocean beach. Take other day trips to St. Simons, Jekyll, or Amelia Island.
At the end of the day enjoy a fine dinner at the Okefenokee Restaurant in Folkston or
Lang's seafood in St. Marys.
