If you have KDE or just use Konqueror you can acces remote folder like this: fish://user@host
Finally, Konqueror can act as a file manager for local files but also, through FTP, WebDAV or other protocols, as a file manager for files on remote machines. The FISH ("fish://user@host") protocol can be used to manipulate files through SSH, allowing you to use Konqueror as the file manager for almost any machine you can connect to on the internet.

Another option is mounting with FUSE and SSHFS.
SSHFS uses SFTP.
