I take several trips to Florida each year and have found that there is a quaint little town with great food and superb southern hospitality waiting in Darien Georgia. I feel obliged to share my wonderful experience staying at the Open Gates B&B, but hope there will still be vacancy when we return :) The house itself is a piece... More

We had a great time staying at Open Gates BNB with friends. The home is warm and comfortable, food is awesome! Walking distance to food, and shops. The Library in the home is a great location for visiting and playing games. Looking forward to our next stay.

We had the best time! We took a long weekend and went to Open Gates with two other couples. I cannot express how wonderful it was. The service was fantastic, the food was out of this world and overall it was an exceptional experience. We cannot wait to return and plan to do so often!

This was mine and my husband's first bed and breakfast experience and it did not disappoint us. Chef Zack and his wife Kerry were more than accommodating to us. We were a group of 6 and loved staying here. The house is an estate made built almost 140 years ago and Chef Zack cooked us daily breakfast. We had delicious... More

We happened to stop here to try to find local Darien items. The couple went above and beyond to help us out even though we didn't stay there. They we so sweet and we definitely would come and stay here for a real home feel of Georgia! They have baked goods which is the icing on the cake!

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon Zach and his B&B when we got caught in a rainstorm while cycling through. The Inn was really warm and welcoming and had a great kitchen. Zach was incredibly helpful and gave us some freshly made chocolate chip cookies which made our day. Definitely look forward to visiting again one day.

The owner, Zack met us warmly at the front door and quickly made us feel at home. He acclimated us to the area and invited us to a get together with locals at the historic Fort King George for an evening event. There are several places of historic interest and local shrimp boat docks to experience. Open Gate is beautifully... More

Open Gates is located in Darien, Georgia, which is a coastal town with a lot to offer for just about anyone. Darien is the perfect location because it is small, peaceful, and quiet, but it also features a variety of activities. It has great outdoor opportunities, is a cool piece of history, and even has nice shops and a wine... More
