I have fallen in love with Darien! This b&b is owned by a young couple. The food was excellent and the beds soooooo comfy! I love the decor. Ask for the crepes. He's won an award for his culinary skills! I highly recommend this place ! TheSocialSingle.com

We had heard about this place for years and finally took the plunge. What a pleasant surprise! Quite and peaceful, Darien is a hidden gem - but don't tell anyone... Beds were super comfortable, enjoyed the pool, and Zach and Carrie May are magicians in the kitchen!! You'll be amazed at breakfast! We used to stay at a chain hotel... More

Hello Friends! Thank you so much for your kind words and giving us a chance. Yes Darien is a pleasant surprise for anyone looking to get off of I-95 and have some peace, quiet, and tranquility. I want the world to know, but at the same time it's hard to imagine Darien being over run. I always say tell only... More

Comfortable, cozy, wonderfully clean, comfortable with a refreshing dip in the pool made for a wonderful two day stay. Inn keepers Carrie May and Zach know their way around a kitchen, too. Delicious.Nice to wander around Darien.

We enjoyed our 2 night visit to Darien. Enough to see locally and decent restaurant on the quayside but best bit was the laid back and relaxed welcome in this beautiful old house. Facilities fine (liked the porch and the pool) but the warm friendly laid back welcome made our stay. Thoroughly recommend. Thanks Zach and Carrie

Open Gates B&B is a gem in the small town of Darien, GA. With its central location next to the town square, the comfortable and spacious rooms, and the wonderful and indulgent hospitality of the innkeeper, Zach, it was the perfect home base for our trip to the southern Georgia coast. First and foremost, Open Gates B&B excels in its... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Open Gates B & B. The hosts, Zach and Carrie, made our weekend stay very pleasant. Zach, a terrific chef, made special accommodations for my dietary restrictions, which I greatly appreciated. This location is tops. You can walk all around the Darien waterfront, and beautiful Vernon Square is just... More

We had a fantastic time in the low country! Zach and Carrie were great hosts. They recommend some great restaurants and other local places. We walked down to the waterfront and had some delicious meals. None were better, however, than Zach's incredible breakfast fare. We also loved having the pool to cool off in at the end of the day.

Zach and Carrie sincerely went out of their way to make sure my wife and I had a nice stay at Open Gates. It was our first time staying at a B&B, and I think they've set a pretty high bar. They know the town and can assist you with info or contacts in the area, of course. The room... More

Of the 5, I love the Blue Room. I liked it so much, I booked it again on my return trip. Another reason I... More
